Essence Birthday Collection live. laugh, CELEBRATE – review/recenzija

IMG_8266

Hello everyone! Today I’m going to tell you more about products that I got from Essence limited edition collection called live. laugh, CELEBRATE that is the celebration of their 15th birthday. Everyone knows that Essence is my favorite drugstore brand, so when they contacted me asking would I mind them to send me some products, I was like yes please. Even though I got these products as a PR I’m still going to be 100% honest as always. You guys know that I keep things 100% real on this blog!

Pozdrav svima! Danas ćemo govoriti o novoj limitiranoj kolekciji iz Essenca koja će biti dostupna u DM radnjama širom Bosne i Hercegovine u septembru. Ova kolekcija je povodom 15. rođendana Essenca i zove se live. laugh, CELEBRATE. Sigurna sam da već svi znaju da je Essence moj omiljeni drogerijski makeup brend. Jednostavno kvalitet proizvoda je uvijek tu, a povoljni su pa čak i za naše tržište. Bez obzira što sam dobila ove proizvode, moje mišljenje o njima je 100% iskreno, jer kako već znate moje recenzije su uvijek iskrene i bez laži.

This collection has been around for some time, but it just came to Bosnia. We are always late to the party, but the most important is that we got this beautiful collection. So in this collection you have individual eye shadows, powders, highlighters, blushes, lip powders and even lip balms. You can create your own palette picking the shades that you like. I got bigger palette (with 8 spaces). You also have smaller one (with 4 spaces). Palette is actually really heavy because of small bubbles that are in the lid. I think that these are supposed to be like confetti. Palette unfortunately doesn’t have a mirror. It would be absolutely amazing that they included a mirror inside. The palette itself is really good quality and it is really heavy.

Ova kolekcija je već dostupna duže vrijeme u Europi, ali je tek došla u Bosnu. Ova kolekcija je nešto što je vrlo zabavno i možete kreirati svoje palete, što je tako zabavan i unikatan koncept, posebno za drogeriju. U ovoj kolekciji postoje: sjene za oči, puder za fiksiranje šminke, hajlajteri, rumenila, puderi za usne i balzam za usne. Paleta koju ja imam je velika sa 8 mjesta gdje možete staviti proizvode, ali u ponudi postoji i manja, koja je sa 4 mjesta. Paleta je sama po sebi dosta teška. To je zbog vrha koji je ispunjen malim raznobojnim kuglicama, koje valjda predstavljaju konfete. Nažalost u paleti ne dobijete ogledalo, iako bi bilo savršeno da dođe i ogledalo.

Now on to the products and shades that I have in palette
Proizvodi koje imam u paleti – od gornjeg lijevog ugla pa do kraja
1. Fixing powder – 01 Party proof
2. Long lasting eye shadow – 03 Life is beautiful
3. Long lasting eye shadow – 01 Best friends forever
4. Lip base – 01 Let’s get it started
5. Long lasting eye shadow – 07 The Sun is shining
6. Soft shimmer blush – 01 Rhythm of the night
7. Soft lip powder – 02 Everybody dance now!
8. Soft lip powder – 01 Crush on you!

Now on to the formulation of products. Eye shadows are really soft and pretty pigmented. If you ever tried eye shadows from Essence I love Nude collection these are really similar. They blend really nicely, I didn’t have any problem with them. If you want to make them more intense just use your fingers or wet the brush with some fixing spray. Blush is the same formula as a regular silky touch blushes from Essence (I reviewed them here). Lip powders you can use as an eye shadow and it works. I’m not sure I’m going to wear these on lips, just because I don’t really like mat lips. I really like that they included lip balm in this collection, so you can make this powders more comfortable on the lips. Fixing powder is the same formula as they loose “Stay all day” powder or the white one that you get in compact.

Sada da vam kažem nešto više o formulaciji proizvoda. Sjenila za oči su vrlo meka i pigmentovana. Ako ste ikada probali sjenila iz Essencove I love Nude kolekcije, onda možete zamisliti kakva su. Vrlo se lako blendaju i nije im teško intenzivirati pigmentaciju. Ako želite veću pigmentaciju jednostavno ih nanesete prstima ili skvasite četkicu sa nekim sprejem za fiksiranje. Rumenilo je iste formulacije kao njihova „Silky Touch“ rumenila koja su savršena (već sam ih recenzirala ovdje). Što se tiče pudera za usne, možete ih koristiti i kao sjenila za oči. Balzam za usne koji imate u ovoj kolekciji je dobar kao baza za ove pudere, jer se lakše nanose tada.Ako volite mat usne, ovo su proizvodi za vas. Puder za fiksiranje je isti kao onaj koji možete kupiti u praškastom izdanju ili onaj bijeli kompaktni puder koji Essence ima u svojoj kolekciji već duže vrijeme.

If you would like a tutorial with these products let me know, so I can do it for you. Finally I really like that Essence is doing this “make your own palette” thing. It is so cool, I never saw it in drugstore before. I already made myself perfect eye shadow palette, I’ll share it with you in some other posts.

Ako želite neki makeup tutorijal sa ovim proizvodima recite mi u komentarima tako da ga mogu napraviti. Konačno, mislim da je Essence napravio pravu stvar sa ovim konceptom, vrlo je originalan i za sve pohvale. Ja sam već napravila sebi jednu paleticu sa omiljenim sjenama za oči koju ću vam pokazati u nekom od narednih postova.

That’s everything from me today. I hope you enjoyed this review. Did you see this collection in stores already? What do you think about it? What do you think about this concept that Essence is doing? Thank you for reading. Have a nice day. xx

  1. The lip base is actually pretty good when mixed with lip powder, I was surprised. It does make it glossy, but it didn’t dry my lips out. The only problem with those is that they are not as easy to take with you, unlike other lip products..

  2. I usually use it before I start with my makeup, just to prep my lips. I know what you mean, even if you have smaller palette, it would be awkward to re apply it in public. But I actually mostly use these lip powders as eye shadows and if I’m gonna use them on lips, I don’t bring them with me, I just take similar color lip gloss. xx

  3. The colours in this palette are really beautiful and they all seem to be a good size. I think you should definitely create a look or tutorial with this palette. Your reviews find the perfect balance between being detailed but getting to the point – which I mean as a compliment!!! xx

  4. I think I’ll use this palette a lot on my next tutorials, because it has some really gorgeous shades. I started writing in Bosnian also, that’s why it seems like there is a lot of text, so I try to say everything, but keep it under 3 minutes read. Sometimes I feel like I should make yt just so I can ramble for minutes haha. xx

  5. If you joined yt, I would be watching! Although, sometimes the beauty gurus chat for 5mins about nothing before they even get to the product…..hey guys, so I am really excited, I mean well I just ate breakfast and went out with my friends to get coffee. Can you function without coffee? Oh there is this product and I wore it to get coffee etc etc…
    It’s like….SHOW US THE PRODUCT haha. xx

  6. Oh I know what you are talking about. I get so annoyed that in most cases I unsubcribe. I usually watch really small yt, just because I feel they are more honest with reviews and not sponsored like most bigger ones. xx

  7. I still use all of them as eye shadows, they work so well. The good thing is that these are multi purpose products, so they will be amazing for use and maybe for once I’ll use up an eye shadow haha. xx

  8. Oh wow, that’s awesome then! I like multi-use makeup products mostly, or rather, I always personally use makeup products in multiple ways. For instance, I like using shimmery eye shadows as highlighters, or liquid lipsticks for fun eyeliner colors. So I guess I would like this palette! Lol 😆x

  9. I hope you can find them, because you choose your perfect colors and create perfect palette. Which will mean that you will use all colors for every day makeup, which makes it totally worth the money. Plus Essence is really affordable. xx

  10. Yes that actually sounds quite amazing and I’d love to find it… I have only tried a couple Essence products but I like them a lot (I got a liquid liner for $2 that is seriously on par with its $24 high end counterpart) and I’ve always heard great things about the brand 🌸😊
