New In #9

I know I haven't been blogging much, my life right now is just a mess with school starting, exams already, I have been sick and I had some other problems too. I had some pictures for this post for a while now, so I decided to sit down and write a post. Today I have a beauty haul for you. If you would like to see a review of something, just comment down below. I don't have much time, so lets get started.

Preview: Catrice Treasure Trove LE

Here is a preview of Treasure Trove limited edition from Catrice. I can only say one thing about it: packaging! I love star pattern anything so I was very excited when I saw that they are all over these products. Although, colors didn't impress me much, except for the blush and one nail polish in C04 Treasured Twinkles. If you want to see more, keep reading!

Essence Pure Nude Makeup

Today I have for you a review on Essence Pure Nude Make-up. I have seen some posts about it and first I didn't plan to review it. Then I realised that most of the girls aren't really satisfied with it and decided to make a review anyway, because I like it. It's my first proper foundation (I already had one Essence and one Manhattan foundation, but I didn't wear them. Manhattan wasn't even my skin color, but that was years ago, when I didn't know anything about foundations). 
First something about my skin. I didn't wear foundation, because I don't have acne, mostly I have clear skin, although sometimes I get that small annoying pimples on my forehead and nose, but you can't really see them, unless you look close. I only bought this foundation to even out my skin a little bit.

What Essence says about it: natural nude… the new foundation convinces with its light texture and natural finish. it reliably conceals irregularities of the skin and has a subtle mattifying effect. the liquid formula blends wonderfully with the skin for a gorgeous “no make-up” feeling. So, lets see what I think about it.


Packaging and Shade

The foundation comes in a plastic packaging. You can't see how much product is left. It has a pump, which works well, I didn't have any problems with it. A big plus to me is, that it also comes with a tape around the lid, so people can't open every single foundation to test them (that's what testers are for!). You get 30ml of product in the packaging.
You can get this foundation in three shades: 10 pure beige, 20 pure nude and 30 pure honey. I bought the second shade. First I wanted to get shade 30 because I had a tan, but now I'm happy that I chose this one because it matches perfectly with my skin.

Texture, Coverage and Staying Power

The foundation is quite runny, it is really easy to blend. I apply it with the sponge (I have one sponge from Tedi and one from eBay). It has a very light coverage. For me this is enough, but if you want better coverage, this foundation won't be for you. It actually looks like I don't wear a foundation, but in the same time it does even out my skin a little bit. They say that foundation should mattify the skin, but it doesn't mattify mine really well, because I have normal to oily skin. I set it with an Essence Mattifying Compact Powder. With this combination it lasts on my skin for almost a whole day.

Overall, this is a great foundation for someone who likes a natural finish. You won't even notice when you will be wearing it. The one thing that bothered me very much at the beginning was the scent, which is very strong, I can't even describe it. But then, after a couple of uses I got used to it, now it doesn't even bother me, sometimes I don't even notice it, when I'm applying the foundation.

I got it in Müller for 4,29€.

Have you tried this foundation? What do you think about it?

NOTD: Essence The Gel Nail Polish in 49 Turn The Lights On!

This nail polish from Essence it's new in their The Gel nail polish range, it's called Turn The Lights On!
I would describe this color as almost white with a hint of blue. I applied two coats and on top a top coat from the same range. I don't use the matching base coat, because it has disappointed me when I've used it. I just use a top coat and the polish doesn't chip after a third-fourth, maybe even fifth day, once it lasted on me for eight days! (I just had white tips).
