Essence Twilight Collection Swatches!

Hey everyone!

Today I have swatches of some of the items from the new Essence Twilight Collection. This collection is available at Target. I really not a fan of the Twilight series but this collection seemed really nice :D

The colour cosmetics I picked up were 3 of the pigments and the highlighter.


Pigments in A Piece of Forever, Jacob's Protection and Alice had a Vision Again


Shimmer Powder in Bella's Secret



Pigments in Jacob's Protection, Alice had a Vision Again, A Piece of Forever 
and Shimmer Powder in Bella's Secret

These pigments are a little flyaway in nature. I think you may want to use a good base with these. The effect of Jacob's Protection and Alice had a Vision Again upon application is quite beautiful, very rich and metallic. A Piece of Forever is pretty much pure gold glitter with not much of a base colour. I can imagine patting this over a gold cream shadow to create a very glittery look.

The shimmer powder in Bella's Secret is quite subtle but very beautiful. This would be a great highlighter for every day wear, as it is not overly metallic or intense as some highlighters can be. The texture is very smooth.


I also picked up all four nail polishes in this collection.


Nail Polish in  Edward's Love, Jacob's Protection, Alice had a Vision Again and A Piece of Forever

The formula of this nail polish is a delight! It is a thicker consistency but it is very easy to work with and it is completely opaque in 2 coats :) I would highly recommend these nail polishes!

I would highly recommend the shimmer powder and the nail polishes from this collection :)

Are you planning on picking up any items from this collection?

  1. I purchased two of the polishes, and the highlighter! I'm tempted to go back and buy the pigments as the two darker colours look stunning!

  3. I was going to buys some of the pigments today... I really liked the one that had rainbow glitter (the only one you don't have) and A Piece of Forever... but they seemed super powdery and I was worried about epic fall out. I was thinking I may wait until they go on sale :P

  7. I was about to head into Target today, but I'm glad I didn't, as I wouldn't have been able to resist! I've been buying too much crap lately, and I haven't even been working :(

  10. The purple pigment is amazing, but I never actually use any of my pigments so I must resist! The highlighter and the blue and purple nail polishes are tempting though. It's probably a good thing my local Target never updates the Essence stand, I think I could go a little nuts over this collection.

  12. My target did not have many things left when I visited last week, but I did manage to pick up Jacob's Protection in the polish and pigment.

    I loved the look of the blush and the highlighting powder but the only ones left had been tampered with, so I decided against buying them.

    Great review, thanks for sharing! :)

  16. Alice had a Vision Again nail polish looks really pretty! I also like the gold pigment. The names are a bit of a laugh though - really catering to the Twilight fanatics LOL

  17. I've never bought anything from Essence and quite hates Twilight, but these pigments look so great *running to the nearest DM*
    <3 I especially love "Alice had a vision again" <3 (sorry but I really laughed hard at those names)
    Would you like to follow each others? :)
    With love, Minnie

  18. I'm really liking the Alice had a vision again nail polish! I really like the whole collection actually. I want to get my hands on the blush, shimmer powder, the red lipgloss and maybe one of the eyeliners too. I'm going to give the pigments a miss because I'm horrible at applying them, otherwise I'd get Alice had a vision again.
    I saw them all in my local Target yesterday and the stand looked really well stocked but I didn't get any.

    Not going to lie: i am a tad excited for this collection. Bit of a twilight fan ha!!
