Winter time: Essence Winter? Wonderful! LE :)


Hello! This year Essence prepared the perfect winter makeup collection! I love collections that are not just Christmas/holidays related with golds and reds, but more winter related, products that are more versatile for every makeup user, not just makeup junkies like beauty bloggers! The limited edition I will b talking about today is called Winter? Wonderful! and I have three products to present from it - a hand cream, a blush and an oil lip tint!



Let's talk about handream first! The name of this one is 01 You Melt my Heart. I was lucky to catch the last one on an almost raided limited edition stand at my local Muller store. The price for this one was 2,19 euros, which is the usual Essence price. I really love the design of this hand cream, the packaging is sooo beautiful! The little snowflakes on the packaging make all the difference, otherwise I might not buy this one at all. The packaging is otherwise a clasic plastic tube that contains 100 ml of product and once open lasts for another 12 months. The moisturizing hand balm melts in to your hands for an immediate feeling of comfort. The innovative formula contains milk protein and cotton extract and will leave your cuticles and skin smoothed. I really love the scent as well! The texture is very light and sinks into the skin really fast! 


The second product I will be talking about is the blush - 01 Winter Kissed Cheeks!  It comes in a classic transparent case, the usual packaging for their blushes and contains 4,5 grams. The design of the blush goes with the rest of the limited edition - the amazing snowflake design and the colour choise is pretty amazing, looks so lovely! The three colour combined look so natural, though the pink shae is dominant. The combination includes the big pink snowflake, the smaller peach snowflakes and the background is in a light beige/browny shade with golden shine to it. It does contain very small shimmer but it's not visible on my face, it looks more like a matte blush on me. I like that the pigmentation is good, but not too strong, as I can layer some more if I want but at the same time don't go overboard with my first application. If I apply it very gently, it looks so natural like I have nothing on, but I can easily build it up. If I apply it just one thin layer it looks more like my cheeks are a bit pink from the outside cold! Looks very natural and very flattering! The price for this one is 3,29 euros.




And the last product is tint&oil for lips in shade 01 If Kisses Were Snowflakes... It comes in a silvery, sleek packaging taht contains 6,5 ml of product and is good for another 12 months once open. This packaging doesn't have any snowflakes on it, unfortunately, no extra decor. It looks like a lip gloss and also has a small doe foot applicator. The scent of this is very sweet, but I am noticing a lot of lip products by Essence have sweet scents. The texture of this lip oil is actually quite thick and covers my lips very well. It protects them well against cold outside and creates a shiny barrier between them and cold air. It is actually nourishing, like lip balms, actually helps me keep my lips smooth and in good condition. This gives me a very light pink stain, but applied multiplue times in lets say three hours will give my lips a very strong pink look. Otherwise this really gives just a hint of colour, which stays on my lips and gives them a gentle stain. What I like the most is the non sticky and lightweight formula! The price for this one is 3,29 euros.
