Beauty duo: essence lip liner & lip gloss

Essence is a brand I cannot resist and if I want to test a novelty in the market I'll first go and see if they have it on their stand. Lip liner I got in a shade '12 Wish me a rose' which is this lovely mix between nude and rose colour. On my lips it appears more pink, however, you don't get blinded by it. I thought it would go great with my essence lipstick in 'nude love', only that shade is meant for nude lip liners rather than pink... that's when I took my other essence (I honestly swear, this isn't a sponsored post, I just realized the brand obsession) lipstick in 'natural beauty' that has the exact same shade as the liner. Happy ending :) Besides the colour I can mention three other things: a) application: I don't need to linger on this one, it is very easy and smooth and I already need to sharpen my pencil to keep the application as precise as possible. b) formula: it dries your lips, true. I prefer to wear it alone which may not be a good idea but I tried applying a bit of lip balm on my lips every now and then and drink lots of water to keep my lips from cracking. c) lasting: so far I had it on for four or five hours and it still looked fine when I took makeup wipes to rinse it off. Oh, and did I mention it's only 1,19 €? Now you know.

Not forgetting about lip gloss, are we? This beauty is in a shade '10 Shy Beauty' that reminds me very much of Tanya Burr lip gloss in 'daydream' (now I wish to test it out and compare). Essence's range is called XXXL Nude Lipgloss which has many gorgeous shades but I only went for one. Colour appears very nude and it makes you wonder how it looks on your lips. It is more of a sheer pink and I admit, I did expected better pigmentation but that's not at all a downside. I can easily wear it on all my pink lipsticks or just on its own. It's moisturizing and definitely not sticky but it doesn't stay on for too long. I could prolong its durability by not biting my lips to much (a bad, bad habit of mine) but I still think it's better to keep this gloss with you at all times. Prize? 2,19 € (in Müller).

SLO: Essence je znamka, ki se ji ne morem odreči. Če želim preizkusiti nek nov izdelek na trgu, se bom najprej obrnila na njihov oddelek. Svinčnik za ustnice sem vzela v odtenku '12 Wish me a rose', ki je lepa zmes nevtralne in roza barve. Kakorkoli že, na ustnicah izgleda bolj roza, vendar ne taka, ki te oslepi. Bila sem prepričana, da se bo ujemala z mojo essence šminko v 'nude love', vendar bi potrebovala bolj 'nude' svinčnik kakor pa roza... potem sem vzela drugo essence šminko (moja častna, da ta objava ni spozorirana, obsesijo z znamko šele zdaj opažam) v odtenku 'natural beauty', ki se popolnoma ujema s svinčnikom. Srečen konec :) Poleg barve, bi rada omenila še tri stvari: a) nanos: tu ni potrebno dodati veliko, zlahka se nanese svinčnik. Že ga moram ošiliti, da bi spet dobila tisto precizno linijo. b) formula: osuši ustnice, res je. Pa še raje ga nosim samega, kar le ni dobra ideja, ampak to malce oblažim, ko nanesem balzama za ustnice ter pijem precej vode, da mi ustnice ne razpokajo. c) trajanje: do zdaj sem ga imela največ štiri ali pet ur na sebi in še vedno je izgledalo kot nedotaknjeno, ko sem vzela makeup robčke, da ga odstranim. Sem omenila, da stane le 1,19 €? Sedaj veš. 

Ne pozabimo na lipglos, prav? Ta lepotica je v odtenku '10 Shy Beauty' in me spominja na Tanya Burr lipglos v 'daydream' (zdaj si želim, da bi ga lahko probala in primerjala). Essence kolekcija se imenuje XXXL Nude Lipglos, ki ima veliko lepih odtenkov, jaz sem pa izbrala le enega. Barva je bledo roza in pričakovala sem dosti več pigmentacije. Glos je bolj transparenten, z nekaj barve, kar ni nujno slabo. Nosim ga lahko na vseh svojih roza šminkah ali pa samega. Vlaži ustnice in se ne lepi, ampak ne ostane gor dovolj dolgo. Lahko bi malo pripomogla temu, tako da ne bi grizla ustnice (slaba, slaba navada), vendar vseeno- bolje je imeti glos pri sebi kamorkoli že greš. Cena? 2,19 € (v Müllerju).

SRB: Essence je marka, kojoj ne mogu odoljeti. Ako želim isprobati neki novi proizvod na tržištu, prvo ću da se okrenem na njihovo odeljenje. Olovku za usne sam uzela u nijansi '12 Wish me a rose', koja je kombinacija neutralne i pink boje. Na usnama izgleda više roza, ali ne takva, koja te može da zaslepi. Bila sam sigurna, da će se moći upariti sa mojim essence karminom 'nude love', ali bi mi trebala više 'nude' olovka nego pink... tada sam uzela svoj drugi essence karmin (obečavam, da to nije sponzoriran post, tek sada vidim moju obsesiju marke) u nijansi 'natural beauty', koji se potpuno poklapa s olovkom. Srećan kraj :) Da napomenim još tri stvari: a) aplikacija: tu nije potrebno dodati puno, lako se nanese. Već je moram izoštriti, da bi mogla dobiti preciznu liniju. b) formula: isuši usne, to je istina. A ja je još volim nositi samu, što nije dobra ideja, ali uzmem malo balzama za usne i pijem dosta vode, da mi ne popucaju usne. c) trajanje: do sad sam je imala najviše četiri ili pet sati i još uvek je izgledala netaknuta kad sam uzela mejkap maramice, da je skinem. Da li sam spomenula, da košta samo 1,19 €? Sada znaš. 

Da ne zaboravimo na lip glos, okej? Ova lepotica je u nijansi '10 Shy Beauty' i spominje me na Tanya Burr lipglos 'daydream' (sada si želim, da bi ga isprobala i uporedila s ovim). Essence kolekcija se zove XXXL Nude Lipglos koja ima dosta lepih nijansi, ja sam izbrala samo jednu. Boja je bledo roza i očekivala sam više pigmentacije. Glos je više transparentan, s nekoliko boje ali to nije tako slabo. Mogu da ga nosim na svim mojim pink karminom ili samog. Vlaži usne i ne lepi se, ali ne ostaje dugo na usnama. Mogla bi da to spriječim ako bi prestala da grizem usne (slaba, slaba navika), ali svejedno- glos je bolje imati uzase gde god da ideš. Cena? 2,19 € (u Müller-u).
^^ The lighting may appear odd (I switched lenses to get a closer shot) but lipstick/lip gloss/lip pencil colours are the way they supposed to be.

Talking about keeping my posts shorter...
Happy Tuesday everyone and thanks again for reading! :)

  5. koja slučajnost! ja baš bila u DM i kupila isto essance olovku za usne i sjajilo! Olovka koju sam izabrala je malo tamnija jer mislim da meni uz kožu bolje idu tamnije nijanse, ali svejedno baš zanimljivo kako smo u isto vrijeme kupile isto. Neko sam vrijeme izbjegavala sjajila za usne, ali stvarno su praktična za imati uz sebe i lakše ih je nanositi neko ruž.
