''Enter the world of makeup holographics, where shimmer unites with vibrant colors and 3D effects seductively play with your eyes, lips and nails. Essence has it all this season! The essence “meet_me@holografics.com” trend edition takes a cue from the make-up trend of the year and offers celestial styles straight from the fashion world! Essence is heading into may/june 2011 with 3D reflections and sunny, light textures for a futuristic start to the summer.'' (Essence)

First of all: what the hell is up with the names of Essence trend editions?! Couldn't they just name it Meet Me at the Holografics? All the dots, at's, dashes etc... confuse me.

OK, other than that, this collection seems really interesting. I just hope that these shades will really be holographic and not duochrome or even worse, just shimmery. Let's face it, Essence tried to fool us before. /:)

That Cream to Powder Eyeshadow looks great (I'm eyeing the teal one called Gagalectric). The only thing I'm afraid of is creasing. Sometimes even Urban Decay Primer Potion doesn't help with cream eyeshadows. At least on my rather oily eyelids. We shall see. Eyeshadow pots will come in three different shades.

Lipglosses also come in three shades: purple, white and pink. Interesting, but nothing more. I doubt they would look good on me anyway. I also have a feeling this ''holographic shimmer'' lipglosses were supposed to have is just a regular iridescent shimmer. But who knows, I might be surprised when I see them in real life.

Liquid Eyeliner comes in blue and white color. I'm not sure about this, but if Essence happened to make a holographic eyeliner - more power to them. Blue one looks great on the photo. Hmmm... I might have to buy it.

Nail polish!!! Sadly all 5 shades look more iridescent/duochrome than holo, but if the colors are right, I don't really care. Let's just hope the formula will be OK. The blue one shall be mine. :D

Body Oil reminds me of Illamasqua's Illumine Oil. I'm so curious how this would look on skin. Yep, this is one of the most interesting products in the whole collection for me. Hope it smells good.

What do you say about Meet_me@holografics.com Trend Edition?

Thanks for looking!


  1. Ack heart attack! Ooo boy I hope those nail polishes are duochrome AND holographic. They look pretty nice to me!! Whoot! Now I just need a European hookup! :D

  2. Hopefully this collection comes to the US! I find quite a few of them (usually a season or two too late) and I hope this is one. I think they're creating false expectations with calling it Holographic because like you said, everything seems iridescent or duochrome.

  3. I can almost bet my left fot that "holographic" will mean "duochrome or iridescent" in essenseish.. HUNF!

  4. I'm digging at least two of those nail polishes. I suspect they will turn out to be duochrome and not holographic.

  5. Ooooh! Duochrome! I need to get my hands on some of those.

  6. i want them polish and body oil !!

  7. Can I ask you where you purchase your Essence products? :D

  8. I cant wait to try the essence holo ;)

  9. @Beatlemarta: I'm afraid so too.

    @Christine: I buy Essence products in local drug stores (Müller, Drogerie Markt).

  10. Oh no... I hate that Essence isn't sold i Sweden!

  11. Always love a good holo polish. Like the eye liner. I love liners. I feel naked if I don't wear one.
