❀ Essence Bloom Me Up Collection ❀

Welcome back to my blog! Today I'm going to be reviewing to "Essence Beauty Bloom Me Up" collection. This came out a few weeks ago, but I hadn't had a chance to do a blog post until now. So basically the collection came with 10 products, and I got them all. The collection includes: three spring coloured pastel nail polishes, two pastel eyeshadows, a beautiful highlighting powder, a sheer lipstick, a blush stick, nail stickers, and a duo nude eye pencil and brow lifter. Here is an overview of the collection:

The first item is my favourite in the collection. It is this beautiful champagne highlighter in the colour "Rose it Up!". The colour is very beautiful and it isn't too chalky on the skin. It also has adorable packaging.

Next are these two eyeshadows. One is a pastel pink called "Rose it Up!" and the other is a beautiful mint called "Blow My Mint." Both have a slight shimmer but it's nothing too much. The mint is a lot more pigmented than the pink.

I absolutely love these polishes! The packaging is just to die for with the cute decals on the lid that match the colour. The first is a mint colour with no shimmer, just plain mint, and is called "Blow My Mint." Next is a beautiful pastel orange with a slight shimmer to it called "Blooming Tender." Lastly is a nice lavender colour with a slight shimmer called "Lovely Lavender." I have to say the mint is my favourite.

This sheer lipstick gives lips a bit of shine and feels as comfortable as a balm. It has a nice smell to it, and I love the cute pastel packaging of it! It's in the colour "Rose it Up!" If you don't like sheer lipsticks, this will not be for you.

Another one of my favourite things in the collection is this duo eye pencil in the colour "Bloomylicious." One side has a nude colour for your lower lashline, and the other side has a brow lifting highlighter colour (a pastel pink). Both are a matte finish so it really looks natural. I like using both ends on my lashline depending on the look I'm going for and the brow lifting side on my brow bone.

The collection also came with these nail stickers (presumably meant for a lace french mani). They are very nice, although I haven't tried them yet on the nail. I'll probably be waiting until my nails are a little more grown out for that.

Lastly this blush stick in the colour "Chaising Lacy" is a beautiful watermelon red-pink colour. It's very sheer but creates a nice natural finish. It doesn't have any shimmer but is very creamy and easy to apply. I really like this blush. 

Here are some swatches of the products:

I haven't swatched the last nail polish yet, but I'll be sure to add it when I do.
