Cherry Blossom Girl

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!


The goodies!



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, Hello Glitty


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?

  5. Oh my gawsh - everyone is going crazy over this collection, including myself! Those paper lashes are amazing (but I would never ever get any wear out of them considering I've never even worn normal fake lashes!) and the blush looks beautiful too. I was going to pick up the lip pencils they had in the range because I have been getting into lip crayons with the FOA ones and Revlon balm stains but from what I've read, they are pretty awful. Those polishes look gorgeous. Oh my goodness I just want everything!

  6. Hello Glitty! You don't want to mispronounce that! I also live in Perth and sick of my face melting off every day...luckily today is a bit better. Have you tried the shadows over a cream shadow base? The colours may last longer. These colours look pretty on you.

  7. What a cute collection! Wish we had these in the States. The paper lashes are adorable and that blush - wow. My Little Kimono and It's Peach not Cherry are great colors too! :)

  8. I think the nail polish's are what saved this collection for me. I'm so happy that you skipped the lipstick pencils as they were horrible. I kind of expected better from the highlighting pen though.

  9. Ugh I haven't had the time to go to Priceline yet but I definitely want to pick up the nail polishes and the blush.

  10. I keep seeing this collection but honestly I'm not to impressed by it.. the first time I had a play around with it in Priceline the liquid eyeliner exploded on me =S but those nail polishes look good i might pick some of those up :)

  11. OH WOW I wish Essence becomes available in the Philippines! I love anything Cherry Blossom and I think the blush that you got is very very pretty :D

  12. It's a great collection and I have to stop myself buying everything as I'm trying to save money. I bought the blush though and love the colour. It's a shame the quad isn't very pigmented cause the colours are lovely. The nailpolishes are real pretty too, especially the peach one, but my boyfriend would kill me if I got another polish, haha.

  29. Shame about the shadows, they're quite nice colours. The blush looks lovely on you :)

    Had a bit of a giggle at your caption about the highlighter :P

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'm so glad you got everything you wanted, the stand at my local Priceline is already empty :0

    The pen highlighter is working really well for me worn along my browbone, maybe give that a shot? I do like fast drying highlighters though :)

  32. umm wow I *need* those lashes & that blush is to die for! Sad to hear about the highlighter pen, sometimes quick drying products aren't best!

    ReplyDelete
  33. The peachy polish and highlighter are awesome! I wish I got a chance to get some stuff from the snow white collection but I didnt! And oh my, I'd LOVE to get some paper lashes for fun!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'm trying to convince my boyfriend to head out and buy some for my birthday! I'm hoping he will as they all look fantastic! :D
    (Well except for that highlighter... I'm not a big fan of highlighters to be honest)
