When I saw the product photos for Essence's Cherry Blossom Girl Collection, I knew there were a few items I had to have. Luckily I managed to pick every single item I wanted, which is a first!
First up we have an Dreaming Under a Cherry Tree Eyeshadow Quattro. First up, the colour combo is so lovely, and very unique! However, the colours aren't super pigmented and they blend into nothing very easily. I have never tried an eye shadow quad from Essence before, but these shades seem sheerer than their individual shadows that I have tried. These shades had okay wear time, a bit of fading after wearing about 6 hours, but hey it's in the middle of a humid summer here, all of my makeup is melting.
Burnt Orange, Soft Grey, Peach and Brownish Taupe
As you can see the shades don't come across super pigmented on the eye, but they still look okay.
How cute are these Hidden in Sakura Garden Paper Lashes? I will definitely be saving these for a special occasion, like a dress up party or a concert. Love love love love love.
Asian Sensation is a two toned blush in a bright coral and soft peach. These shades are very smooth upon application, they look beautiful separately, however when swirled together they make the ultimate peachy blush!
Coral, Soft Peach, Mixed
I am impressed.
Hello Glitty Shimmering Body Powder is such a cute product to have. It has a pretty sparkly finish so I don't think I would use this on the face, but I would however sweep this across my collarbones on a night out :)

Konnichiwa Girls! Highlighting Pen definitely reminds me of a few other pinky, pearlescent liquid highlighting products I have seen around. When I swatched this I was super impressed with the colour, however upon application I came across some issues. The formula dries super quickly so whilst I tried to pat it out on top of my Nars Sheer Glow foundation, it started to make my foundation go patchy. The effect was similar to the effect you get when you try and apply a liquid product over a powder. I don't think I can recommend this product to you, this is one of my pet hates with products. I took a picture to show you what I mean.
Aint nobody got time for that
I got all of the nail polishes in this collection, which are called Fortune Cookie, My Little Kimono, Cherry Cherry Girl and It's Peach Not Cherry. The formula of these polishes is a dream, they all apply smoothly and look perfect in two coats.

Do you think you will be picking up anything from this collection?
