Hey there! Another new trend edition by Essence is coming this summer :) This time it's called Me & My Ice Cream and it is very pastel toned :)

Shimmer pearls: Shimmering scoops of ice cream… the softly shimmering pearls with a light color dispersion are perfectly aligned with the pastel shades of this trend edition. They give your face and neckline a subtle glow and can even cover-up fine imperfections as well as slight redness thanks to the different nuances. Available in 01 i-cy u.

Hand wipes: To make sure that your hands are fresh and clean after you enjoy your treat, the me & my ice cream hand wipes come in a practical, re-sealable packaging that’s sure to fit into any purse. And they have a delicious strawberry ice cream fragrance, too! Available in 01 i scream ice cream.

My opinion: Hmmm.. no way. This is way too pinky for me, the colours are too pastel and bright. Also the only product I am at the moment interested in is the cream blush, but I won't buy even that. Lately Essence is releasing trend editions I mostly don't like. Which is weird, because there is always something I like.. This edition also appears to me more appropriate for spring time, because of the colour choice... not so much summery as the rest of the trend editions they have released in the last couple of months. Otherwise I think the baked eyeshadows may prove a good product, but with Essence you never know. Sometimes their eyeshadows are a hit and sometimes a miss. The lip balms - I'm sceptical they are good care for the lips, I would go for more natural and more varified brand that has lip balms. Hand wipes are a nice touch, especially in hot summer, but you can get a similar product almost anywhere. The shimmer pearls also look like a good product, so I'll maybe try it when it comes to stores :)
 What about you? Do you like this trend edition?

Thanks for reading!

Love, UniqaPoly
