I hope you are ready for a massive post. Essence is really working hard and puting all these new products out... Oh, we're gonna be shopping like mad!

As mentioned above - all the fragrances will be available in 50 mL AND 10 mL bottles. Can't wait to 'give it a smell'. =) Some of them sound really interesting - by the notes, not by the description. Essence tends to be a bit overwhelmed by every product they make. The exclamation marks, crazy, fun ... and what not. You can find more information on these frangrances on the 'fragrance' website.
Are you excited about these as well?
''Mirror, mirror on the wall… these words conjure-up wonderful fantasies of enchanted forests, a prince and the greatest love of all… but what was the story behind that famous line again? In collaboration with Disney, the seven dwarfs will not only charm us with their rosy red cheeks and a cheerful song on their lips in june 2012, they’ll be delighting true fairytale fashionistas with the new Essence trend edition "snow white" for bright, colorful nail trends! A snow white look and fairytale glam for your nails – the hype of the summer!'' (Essence)
Snow White collection is dedicated to nails. Stickers, a file and nail polish in creme and glitter. That's it. Simple, but I'm sure it will make a real hype - just like Essence expects. I'm too old to use the stickers (or too mature, hahaha - that's a good one), wouldn't touch my nails with this kind of file, but I'm really interested in the polishes. I love the way they brought the idea to life. Seven small (5mL) nail polish bottles with the names of seven dwarfs and one bigger (7mL) bottle of true red polish in Snow White. Isn't that adorable? I'll be checking out the glitters as well. You never know... And you? Are you interested in any of the products above?
''London, Rome, New York, Rio de Janeiro – summertime is travel season! Whether you’re going on a last-minute trip in Europe or travelling to far-away countries or even around the world: with the new Essence trend edition "ready for boarding", you can welcome that yearning desire to travel in june and july 2012. These practical little travel products simply have to come along, no matter how full your suitcase is! So go pack those bags, head through the security check and get ready for take-off!'' (Essence)
A little bit of this, a little bit of that. I'd try the Lip & Cheek Cream if I wasn't too traditional and wouldn't be afraid of looking like a doll. But who knows, I might change my mind by June. Some of the polish shades look interesting as well, but what caught my attention the most - Peel Off Base Coat. This is the description of the product:
''On and off! With the brand new peel off base coat, it’s ok if you have to get things done fast. After application, the milky white texture turns transparent and provides the ideal basis for your vacation nail polish color! To remove your nail polish, all you have to do is peel it off. Then you can apply a fresh layer of base coat before covering it with a new favorite nail polish shade to go with each outfit and look. A great side-effect: you’ll never have trouble with your nail polish remover during the hand luggage security check again…''
What the hell?! I'm having enough trouble with my polish peeling off without the use of 'special' peel off base coat. I'm not sure what to expect from this. I surely won't be buying it, but I'll read a review of it if I ever come across it.
Soooo, what do YOU like?
