As I have mentioned in my previous post, I went to Germany on a little trip with my mom. I had a great time and of course, did a little bit of shopping here and there. I found lots of products by Essence and Catrice that aren’t available at our local drugstores, so I was super happy to finally be able to get my hands on some of those items. I wanted to start off with this Trend Edition by Essence, inspired by the Oktoberfest.
The first thing that caught my eye were these cute boxed blushes. There were 2 of these blushes in the collection, a pink and a mauve. The packaging is a bit bulky but oh so cute! It comes in a little box with a really fun design and the blush itself has a little pink reindeer on it. To be honest, it was the packaging that really made me buy it. It’s definitely a collectors item if you ask me!
The blush is called Pretty Pink Dirndl and it’s a pale bubblegum pink. It has a cool undertone and lots of shimmer. There actually chunks of glitter in this and that’s something I don’t really appreciate in a blush. I prefer a soft shimmer over big and noticeable chunks of glitter. Once you swirl the pink reindeer and light pink powder together, you get a cool-toned pink blush. The blush is a bit powdery, but it applied quite nicely.
My skin has a warm undertone, so this blush doesn’t really look that flattering on me. But for those of you with fair/cool-toned complexions, this will look very lovely!
I saw this nail polish and their stand and I couldn’t resist it. It’s called Holz Oder Michel? and it’s the prettiest khaki green shade, perfect for fall! I didn’t own anything like this before (I really didn’t!!) and I’m obsessed with it. It did need about 2-3 coats to look opaque but it applied super fast without too much streaks.
