Miracle Stone


I still have some nail polishes that I haven't tried out yet and my goal for this year is to at least use all of them at least once.

Essence the gel nail polish in Miracle Stone. This was another snatch right before they discontinued this line and replace it with different bottle design. 

It is supposed to be matte but I would say it is semi matte. I love the little sparkle and when I add the shiny top coat is shines even more.

The sparkles aren't really white or silver but duochrome pink and gold. It is unusual but lovely at the same time. I really enjoyed wearing it and I can't wait for the next time to put it on. With the amount of the bottles that I have it will take a while  ;)
Removing it was easy and I haven't experience any chips. Essence can really make good nail polishes for really cheap.

Thank you for reading and have a nice day

Natural Beauty


this lipstick is an oldie but so good. It is already discontinued and now they have different collections but this is still so good. A lovely mix of pigment and creaminess.

Essence long lasting lipstick in the shade Natural Beauty. I liked this simple packaging with the colorful ring to set them apart, at the moment this is the only one that I have so it doesn't have a purpose but I like it.

I can't go wrong with a soft pink with a neutral undertone and this one is awesome for me. It is nicely pigmented, two layers and I'm good. It is not matte but slightly shiny as you can see on the photo below. I usually don't like full on matte shades so having a bit of sheen is great.

It is very comfortable to wear and lasts for quite a while. When it starts wearing off it is even so even if I don't reapply immediately it looks okay.
I was browsing through the rest of the shades while they were still available but nothing else stand out to me like this lovely pink did. Unfortunately it is no longer available but they have plenty of others that are also very nice (velvet matte is more dull, perfect shine is shinier) all very good but slightly different. When mine will be finished I feel Essence will bring something similar back, fingers crossed  ;)
