New From Essence: Fragrances, Snow White Trend Edition & Ready for Boarding Trend Edition

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! 

***

''A moment of happiness... a secret wish... a wonderful memory. You know how it feels with the new fragrances by Essence! From june 2012, Essence will be a permanent fixture on the fragrance shelves for the first time ever! The fragrances come at the usual low essence prices and are available in a 50 ml flacon as well as in a practical 10 ml mini-size for on-the-go.'' (Essence

Top notes: lemon, orange, cyclamen, clean aldehyde, watermelon. Middle notes: marine note, dewy muguet, freesia, floral ozonic. Base notes: moss, cedar wood, musk.

Essence Like a Trip to New York
Like a Trip to New York - as exciting and upbeat as a short trip with your best friend. Soho, Times Square, 5th Avenue. The big apple is expecting us! Cheerful, fruity and urban, this fragrance ensures a great mood. Top notes: cardamom, elemi, grapefruit zeste, cranberry. Middle notes: rose, datura. Base notes: cedar wood, white wood, amber.

Essence Like a New Love

This fruity, floral and radiant fragrance makes you feel so alive! Top notes: pineapple, orange juice, tangerine. Middle notes: praline, dewberry, rose. Base notes: sandalwood, musk, vanilla. 

Essence Like a Girl's Night Out

Top notes: elemi, yellow mandarin, dragon fruit, goji berry. Middle notes: rose, peach, magnolia, mandarin tree flower. Base notes: vetiver, vanilla, musk. 

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)
Essence Snow White Trend Edition

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)
Essence Ready for Boarding Trend Edition

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?

  1. Joj, to zgleda super! A vse te stvari dejansko pridejo v Slovenijo? Predvsem lakov se veselim :)

    1. Mislim, da bodo vse zadeve prišle v Slovenijo. Če ne v DM, pa vsaj v Müller-je. Do sedaj je še večina kolekcij prišla tudi v naše trgovine, zato lahko upamo. =)

  2. Uau, dišave izgledajo čudovito! Upam, da bodo parfumčki tudi tako dišali, kot so luškane stekleničke! =) Upam pa tudi, da bodo na voljo kakšni testerčki... A cena pa še ni znana? Jaz je nisem nikjer opazila, me pa zelo zanima, kakšna bo.

    1. Po mojem testerji bojo, ker bojo parfumi v redni prodaji. Se pa nikoli ne ve, ker so nekatere trgovine malo mimo. Khm... Cene nisem zasledila na njihovi spletni strani. Verjetno bi bilo najbolje, če bi pisala distributerju za Slovenijo, pa imam slabe izkušnje. E-mailov mi sploh ne pošiljajo - o prihajajočih trend edicijah, zato se z njimi ne mislim več ukvarjati. ;)

    2. Nič hudega, cene bomo videle takrat, ko bodo parfumčki na poličkah. Prej pa tako ali tako ne moremo do njih, čeprav jih jaz komaj komaj čakam! =) Hvala!

      Delete
    3. Cene parfumov Essence: 50 ml 7,49€ in 10 ml 3,49€.

  3. Vsi (to je pri meni redkost :)) laki iz snow white kolekcije! Pa parfume bom verjetno malo prevohala, ampak najbrž bo ostalo pri tem.

    1. So kar posrečene odtenke na kup spravili, ane? Čeprav se mi zdi, da smo vse že bolj ali manj videli. Prevohavala bom pa jaz tudi. =D

  4. (ehh, ne da mi se več po ang. :D)
    1. dišava mi zna bit všeč - res imam rada citrusne vonje.
    Ideja z lakci (1 velik in 7 manjših) v Snow White kolekciji je kjuuuut, ampak se verjetno ne bom metala za njimi, skoraj zihr bom šla pa vsaj pogledat (lalala, nič ne obljubim, da kak ne bo šel z mano) vijoličnega & zelenega.
    Tista Ready for Boarding me pa matra predvsem zaradi imena, realno me pa zanima samo bazni lak. In torbica. In robčki. In mogoče še kakšen lak. ... :D

    1. Ma, saj ni treba po angleško. He he
      Glede vonjav je tako - če ima dobre note, še ne pomeni, da bo tudi dobro dišal. Verjetno je odvisno od kombinacije, količine posameznih dišav ipd. Zvenijo pa kar obetavno, ja. A bazni lak te zanima? Se priporočam za informacije o uporabi/nosljivosti, ko/če ga dobiš.

  5. I love th fact Essence keeps trying new stuff for their products/limited editions. Thanks for sharing! :D

    1. I like that too. It's the thing that keeps them going, I think. Staying in trend is important. =) And you're welcome!

  6. Will all this interesting stuff actually arrive in Slovenian stores? Can't wait!

    ReplyDelete
  7. I would like to try the Peel Off Base Coat, but everything caught my attention.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I will definitely look at the fragrances. I like that they are also selling 10 ml flacons so you can try different scents for little money.
    The Peel Off Base Coat sounds rather useless.

    1. Plus - 10mL bottles are easier to carry around. ;)

  9. Do you work for Essence?

    1. No, I do not work for Essence. Or for any other cosmetic company.

  10. S temi 'mladostniškimi' (slab izraz, ampak veš kaj mislim) parfumi imam slabe iskušnje, navadno jih naredijo precej sladke ali precej sadne ali oboje, torej točno take kot jih ne maram. :) Ampak jih bom zagotovo vse povonjala, da vidim, če me presenetijo.
    Sicer mi je pa zelo všeč Sneguljčina kolekcija, sploh topperji. :)

    1. Vem kaj misliš. Tudi meni že malo presedajo in njihovi izrazi pri opisih in motivi za kolekcije. Moramo pa vzeti v obzir, da Essence kozmetika cilja na uporabnice do 20 let. Catrice naj bi bila pa za ženske od 20 do 30 let. Nekako tako, no. Essence za najstnice in Catrice za mlade ženske. =D Kao.

  11. Honestly, i don't really get the idea of the peel of basecoat.. do you know what's going on there? But i really like the top coats of the sw LE and the boarding polishes as well.. :)

    1. I have absolutely no idea. Let's just wait and see. =)

  12. Mmm, I am curious and doubtful at the same time about the peel off base coat.
    I'm also in love with the cosmetic bag, I have a lot of beauty/cosmetic bags but I think I will buy it anyway. :D

    ReplyDelete
  13. Everything looks and sounds promising, I like the Snow White collection very much, and a couple of polishes from Boarding TE look interesting too. The peel of base coat sounds great for removing glitter, flakies etc., but wouldn't it just peel off at any time? Will it somehow know that it's time to go? :)
    I'm really interested in those perfumes too. I only wish the names were without the "like a" part (just Girls' night out, not Like a girls' night out, for instance).

    ReplyDelete
  14. Oh, this shouldn't happen. I think Essence is the master of cheap make-up and nail stuff but I'll rather not smell the fragrances. Maybe my nose is too spoilt by Guerlain, Chanel etc. but I just don't believe the producers of cosmetics that their perfumes are worth trying (as I already convinced myself several times with some other cosmetic brands).
    But I'm looking forward to the travelling collection - I guess I need at least the cosmetic bag!

    hehe I know what you mean ;)

  17. Hmm, it almost seems like its geared toward kids - little girls. I remember having a Barbie nail polish as a little girl that was a peel off polish. It was fun as a kid, but as an adult who takes time to care for my nails is be afraid it would damage them, peel off a layer or something, ya know?

    ReplyDelete
  18. The silver and blue glitter Snow White topper looks great and I can't wait to try Peel Off Base Coat. I had a base coat ages ago that did the same thing - you could peel the base and the polish off the nail in one piece. I loved it, especially since I only wore blacks, dark purples and blues back then :D.
