I've also received yesterday another package from essence - the limited edition makeup collection "sun kissed" - which includes some lovely and highly pigmented products but also some really "unpossible" wear shades for light skin tone people like me or too light for darker skin tones!

Here you can see my nail design result with two shades (03 my sunny side/04 sunset paradise) of the "sun kissed" essence trend edition:
I really like the high pigmentation and that you don't really need a topcoat or basecoat:) - it don't chip after 3 days and I enjoy wearing the blue shade (04), the golden-/bronze-/vintage shimmer-/metallic highly individual shade (03) isn't a shade, which you see often in different drugstores/high-end parfumeries - it's really not a typical color but it's like colors from the 80s or just a retro shade:)
Now let me tell you what I've got:
the two essence "sun kissed" nail polishes (2 shades: 03 my sunny side/04 sunset paradise), 1 lipstick (01 soak up the sun), self tanning wipe, cheek tint (01 soak up the sun), waterproof eye pencil (01 hello summer!) and soft touch eyeshadow (02 my sunny side)
I'll show you tomorrow my whole face makeup with using most of the products from the essence "sun kissed" trend edition! - But I can't trust you, that I'll use the cheek tint as it's a bit too dark for my skin tone!

Wish you a great weekend and hope to see you soon here again:)
