So this is really very summery! Hmm, kinda too much summery in my opinion, I more expected classical spring colours with the new LE, but they actually already done that with the Hugs and Kisses LE. I mostly like the dark burgundy eyeshadow, but probably won't buy it, because I have quite bad experiences with creamy eyeshadows, mostly they crease on me, no matter what I had as a base or how much I applied. I like the lipsticks, they  seem really promising, perhaps the burgundy shade is more appealing to me. Plus the burgundy nail polish and shimmer spray. I'm a lot into glitter and shimmer lately and I would definitely want to try that. :) Anyway it looks like a nice collection, but nothing really stands out, perhaps  just the shimmer spray. These self tanning wipes are to me a little.. hmm.. useless, I mean, I know for sure I would never use them, but you never know, maybe they would be useful to even out the natural tan on your face? :) Also, the cheek tint would be nice to try on my hands before buying, but it looks like both colours are really dark and deep and probably won't suit me.

Thanks for taking the time and reading! :) Have a great week! :)
