I found the new Essence polishes! YAY!!!! 🙂

I told you in another post, that Essence is going to discontinue all their Color & Go polishes. They change the formula, the brush and also the bottle size, and they bring out several new colors. So I discovered the new ones in a local drugstore and bought a bunch of them. The have so many pretty fun colors.

Here’s what I bought:

from left to right:

Date in the Moonlight >>> a dusty blue with blue microglitter

Walk on the Wild Side >>> a mossy green with green microglitter

Chic reloaded >>> a purple-grey-green duochrome

from left to right:

Off to Miami >>> a bright coral-y orange

Grey-t to be here >>> a very light grey with pink microglitter

I love bad Boys >>>  a light blue with blue microglitter

Gorgeous Bling Bling >>> a rusty orange with gold shimmer and flakies

And here’s what they look swatched:

l to r: Date in the Moonlight, Chic reloaded, Walk on the Wild side

l to r: I love Bad Boys, Off to Miami, Grey-t to be here, Gorgeous Bling Bling

Sadly my camera doesn’t pick up the shimmer very good. They look even more gorgeous in person.

I will do a seperate comparison post Essence new vs. Essence old soon…

I guess I should re-name the blog “The Haul-Pages”… *lol

So here’s another drugstore Haul. All things were purchases over the last couple weeks. Enjoy… 🙂

There we have alllllll the goodies. 🙂 Sorry bout the tacky picture, my camera starts doing weird things with the lighting when I take close-ups lately.

Found the Essence “Snow White” LE. I got those three beauties:

Special Effect Topper “Prince Charming” >>> 1,95 €

Mini polish “Bashful” and “Dopey” >>> 1,55 € each

Essie “Ballett Slippers” >>> 7,95 €

On Sale Essence Color & Go polishes in “Sparkling Water Lilly” and Nude Glam polish in “Iced Strawberry Latte” >>> 0,95 € each (the “Sparkling Water Lilly looks much prettier in person. It is a white pearl color with blue-ish shimmer to it.)

Essence Miami Roller Girl Blush in “Dates on Skates” >>> 2,75 €

Something to say on the blush. The product itself is very beautiful and very good pigmented. But the packaging is clearly the most tackiest and cheapest I have ever seen.

I also bought the L’Oreal Nude Magic BB Cream for very light skin. It was on sale for 8,95 €.

Hope you liked that Haul. I have some more coming up, maybe if I have time to write at the weekend. I’m also waiting for three packages of nail polish I ordered on ebay, so there will be a huge Nail Mail post as well…

Guess what… another nail polish haul!!!!

Those are all polishes I’ve purchased during the last week. Only six of them so I did pretty good for an addict, didn’t I? 😉 So here they are up close:

All prices are in € and except the Manhattan polish, I bought them all in several Douglas stores around the country. Just for those who are not from Germany, Douglas is a beauty departement store over here, comparable to Sephora in the US.

The NOPI polishes were on a display with tons of different colors, saying they were all new Kardashian polishes. Are they really from a Kardashian collection? I’ve never seen swatches of those online. Anyways, I bought them cause I really like foily ot metallicy colors at the moment.

The Manhattan & Buffalo polish is a limited edition color I bought at a DM drugstore. And the Douglas color is such a pretty one I can’t believe I have overlooked it for soooo long.

The Essie Mirror Metallics polish I am the most excited for! I don’t know if this collection will be out outside Germany and if so, when. I know Essie is releasing this collection right now over here. There are 5 different colors in it, all metallics. I am on the hunt for them ever since I saw the first pictures, but I could only find Blue Rhapsody so far. And I am sooooo so glad I did. I love the color! It is soo pretty and not streaky at all. I’m wearing it right now and I love it! I’ll definately look out for the other colors and post a seperate haul if I found them. Cause I want them all!!! 🙂

The Essie Marshmellow one was on my wishlist for a while, and when I bought one of the NOPI colors, I saw that they had a little box next to the check out counter, that had reduced Essies in them. There where only two left, one was “Pearly White” and the other was my lovely “Marshmellow”. So I thought I have to give it a nice loving home. 🙂

Here are some swatches of all of them:

Aren’t they all pretty??? I didn’t swatch “Marshmellow” cause it’s just a sheer white color, wouldn’t be very noticable on a white swatch wheel.

What do you think of these color? Have you “hauled” lately?
