Essence: Be A Trend-Maker Contest

There was a contest @ Essence: Be a Trend-Maker and you were supposed to send in your suggestions and ideas for an Essence collection. I'm not really proud of my ''vision'' of the collection and I would do it all differently now. =) As I said...I'm not proud of it, but if you *really* need to see it... here it is. *hides in shame* In my defense: I finished it in like 10 minutes. =D

Well, I was one of the winners in their draw and I got the prize today - a bag of Essence products:


What was in it, you ask? Multi Action False Lashes mascara, liquid eyeliner and black mania khol.


Blusher brush and powder.


Lip gloss and nail polish (and they managed to send me the ugliest shade too). =)


And eyeshadow. I'm most excited about this one.


Did anyone else participate in this contest?

Thanks for looking!

  1. Very cool! I actually like that polish shade, and I hear it is a dupe for Chanel Orange Fizz... I think you should do a FOTD with your prize- those shadow colors look great!

  2. Too bad, I think it's more like they send you their badest eyeshadow. Colours do not come out on your eyes - bad application... don't expect too much from this

  5. I was not aware of this contest but I wanted to say I have the eyeshadow set and it's great! I have only tested the green colour so far and it's exciting. I do have green, yellow, purple and turquoise eyeshadows but I have never seen a so bright green!

    Try it and let us know what you think about it!

    PS: I have green eyes and this green eyeshadow makes my eyes greener!

  10. Really? A Chanel dupe? Well, I still don't like it. =) I'm planning on doing a MU with those shadows. =)

  11. Do you have this eyeshadow palette? That doesn't sound good. :/

  18. Sasha is the best artist! =) the polish is pinkish peach? well, to me it"s quite nice, but if you don"t like it, why not franken? btw: why didn"t you show us l your frankens together with all the collection? one more btw: waiting for your "party animal" MU photo =)

  19. =D Thank you for your kind words!

    ReplyDelete
  20. =) Oh, come on! *blushes* I'd say the polish is like...salmon. Very unappealing. I don't even know what kind of colors I could get out of this... =) I'll show my frankens, if you want to see them. I just don't consider them as the ''official'' part of the collection.

  21. Congrats! I like the nailpolish! Nice colour for summer :)

  22. Meni pa tak lak sploh ni tako slabe barve - jaz ga imam že kar dolgo in je kar precej v uporabi (pa nisem nek "roza punčkast" tip, haha.....)

    Ostalo, kar so ti poslali, je pa tudi fajn :-)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Congratulations! And I'm totally agreeing with your idea, we need more colour from Essence!

  24. Didn't see the contest since I wasn't reading all of the blogs. Love to see you do a makeup look with these. I like the shades of eyeshadow. Nice gift.
