Preview: Essence - Fantasia Trend Edition

Essence is presenting a new collection for December. Right now we have in stores Breaking Dawn part II and Winter collection hand creams, one TE is yet to come and than Fantasia will arrive!!!

Essence team says:
Towards the end of the year, things are going to get magical with the new trend edition “Fantasia” as Essence whisks you away to a fantasy world in December 2012. Who hasn’t longed to be in a place far away from reality where everything is perfect and dreams can come true? “Fantasia” embodies this magical feeling with intense purple and wine-red, coral as well as subtle nude shades and creates a totally trendy elf-like look. The metallic effects offer this style a touch of glamour that is just perfect for christmastime.

Eyeshadow: They are metallic shimmering, highly-pigmented eyeshadows in the three trendy colors purple, silver-grey and soft beige. Available in 01 Elves like lilac, 02 Not ivory but ebony and 03 Have you seen my unicorn?

Metallic liner:  The eyeliner, available in strong purple and dark anthracite, emphasizes your eyes with its fabulous metallic shine. Available in 01 Not ivory but ebony and 02 Elves like lilac.
Lip laquer:  The two colors of the lip lacquers with metallic pigments give your lips a shiny finish with their rich texture and high coverage. Available in 01 Queen of my cloud castle and 02 Take a ride on pegasus.

Multi colour highlighter: The multi colour highlighter sets subtle accents on your face, neck and décolleté with metallic shimmering pigments. And the highlighter turns into a true it-piece itself thanks to its gorgeous flower décor. Available in 01 Elf yourself.

Nail polish:  The long-lasting nail polish in subtle nude as well as in the three intensive colors purple, coral and bordeaux creates a trendy metallic look on your nails. Available in 01 Elves like lilac, 02 Queen of my cloud castle, 03 Take a ride on pegasus and 04 Have you seen my unicorn?

Eye jewels: Sparkling eyes! Set glittering accents on your eyes with the self-adhesive shiny rhinestones. The ultimate highlight for gorgeous eyes just like those of a fairytale princess. Alternatively, you can also decorate other areas on your face, neckline or even your wrists. Available in 01 Sparkling like a fairy.

Wow! I love this collection already! True, not much new to see, but I can not help it. This one is really appealing to me and I'm in the mood for some purple and red colours! The eye shadows are all three on my wishlist, also both lip laquers and the reddish nail polish, metallic liner also looks interesting, but have to see them first, just in case I have almost identical shade already at home.
In comparison with last years December collection Circus Circus, this one is way more appealing to me, I love the colours. Last year was way too glittery for me, thou I loved the perfume, but decided not to buy it since it lost scent too fast.
Perhaps not an usual Christmasy collection, not much true red going on or glitters, but I prefer it like this, these colours are way more useful in everyday makeup as in makeup for special occasions. I don't think I am going to buy eye jewels, thou I am interested how to apply them without falling down? Highlighter is also not on my wishlist since I don't use such products at all.

All in all, I'm already keeping my fingers crossed I manage to get to the stores when the stand will still be full :)
