The gorgeous Essie winter collection is here and they are beautiful shades. I was lucky enough to get my hands on all but one of the shades to test out and there really is something here for everyone. What I am impressed with is the brushes seems to be wider so easier and quicker application. Plus they apply beautifully after two coats which makes my life easier as a makeup artist. I out Go with the Flowy the silver/grey shade to the test on the Marie Claire main fashion editorial last week and I was really impressed.
The new shades (R134.95) are all about nights out in London in the swinging 60’s which definitely refelects in the shimmer shades especially in the gold shade Getting Groovy. The Essie colour director wanted the colours to represent fun nights where its all about the energy and where anything can happen. With these shades they want people to feel some of that energy on night out.
