Essence Merry Berry Christmas Collection

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.

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) Merry Berry nail polish rangeObviously 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 ;)

  5. I got the highlighter, some nail polishes and the gold dust powder (which i’m giving away) – the highlighter is really gorgeous, but the dark purple nail polish is a bit of a fail with regards to staying power :(

    1. Oh no , thats so sad about the nail polish. Are you using it with a top & base coat? The Essence gel nail polish top & base coat make a big difference for lasting power.
