The latest Essence trends edition to hit shelves is the Essence Merry Berry Christmas collection. I don’t normally write about products that I haven’t yet physically tried out but these look way too good not to do a little preview post on! When I think of Christmas I think of shiny, shimmery reds and golds and festive glitter by candle light… The Essence Merry Berry collection is exactly that!
They have brought out a whole range from Nail polish to a hair fragrance. The shades all radiate festive goodness! If this collection doesn’t get you into the holiday mood then I don’t know what will.
The Eye shadows are highly pigmented and metallic , There are two shades for eyes, a copper shade called The perfect dress and a beautiful violet shade called the masked ball. Soft powder with a dreamy appearance that is long lasting and these will retail for R38.95
The Merry Berry Highlight powder is the star of the show, It gives the skin a golden glow with a beautiful subtle shimmer. It is stunning with its star embossed pattern and will retail for about R63.50 so that is a huge bargain! Plus highlighter’s are so in at the moment that am buying every beautiful one that I see lol. With summer here I definitely want a nice glowing complexion.
The merry berry range also has a scented gold dust powder (R67-95), this is a beautifully scented face and body shimmer dust that comes in a stunning golden bottle with a balloon-atomizer pump. Easy to use and adds instant radiance and glamour to your look. Then there is the Essence Merry Berry hair fragrance, it is a perfume and care product, it gives hair a lovely scent and a glowing shimmer while also making hair feel soft and easier to comb (R67.50) Obviously there is also a range of nail colors for the collection, There are three nail color shades in the range as well as a special golden top coat that will give any manicure a golden flake finish. The nail colors are long lasting and have a perfect finish.
The last items I am going to introduce you to today are the Merry Berry Lipsticks. there are three shades, one red and two berry shades. The red shade is a very trendy matte color and the berries are shimmer finish (R44.50) . I can just see these berry shades being a big hit!!! These products are available in stores from November to December and I would rush to get some before they are all gone. Also how awesome are these gonna be as christmas stocking fillers and gifts?!
As soon as I get my hands on some Ill do a review on the products and let you know how they are with swatches and pics of course ;)
