For spring 2017 Essence did not only renew its standard line, but they also released a brand new limited edition. When I spotted it in store, I figured it would be nice to try some products out. My interest was piqued mostly by the nail effect pigments, which can transform your average polish into a (duo)chrome extravaganza. However, I of course cannot say no to a rainbow highlighter and a pretty eyeshadow palette either. This is the review.

My favorite make up days? When I randomly stumble into my local drugstore and find a nearly untouched limited edition display. That doesn’t happen very often, but this time it did, and boy am I happy it happened. Essence just released their new limited edition Lights of Orient collection. I hadn’t heard anything about this yet, and when I looked at the products I was pleasantly surprised. Therefore, I picked up a little bit of everything. I put it all to the test and am reviewing everything for you today.

It’s here, it’s here! It’s finally here! The review of the Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland palette that is. I hope you are as exciting as me about this one. I already mentioned it in my favorites video last week, did a first impression on it in one of my most recent tutorials, but I thought I’d join the madness completely and do a full review, including swatches on this marvelous palette as well.

Are you excited for this review? I know I am. By chance I stumbled upon some great limited edition items when I was shopping around London. One of them was the Too Faced Sweet Peach eye shadow palette. I knew Debenhams now stocked Too Faced, but I initially wanted to get myself the Chocolate Bon Bons palette. Little did I know that they had the Sweet Peach palette in stock. And since that is limited edition and the Chocolate Bon Bons is not, I decided to go for this one right now and buy the Chocolate Bon Bons at a later point in time.

Why do I love eye shadow so much? No matter what happens, if I see an affordable eye shadow palette that captures my eye, I just have to have it, without fail. So when Essence came out with their latest limited edition collection called All That Greys, and saw they did a palette, I decided to get it without thinking twice. Featuring 3 pink and 4 grey shades the Essence All That Greys limited edition eye shadow palette seems to hold the perfect balance between a neutral day look and an intense smokey eye.

It’s that time of year: the sun has been peeping out more and the promise of spring is in the air. And with that promise come some new beauty launches of course. Where most people are completely enamored by Christmas limited editions, I usually prefer spring collections. The colors are fresher and thus much more up my pale skin street. This year I found two beautiful products from the Chanel and Dior Spring 2016 limited editions: LA Sunrise & Glowing Gardens.

For today’s second post, I thought I’d give you a head’s up to something (I think) exciting I am working on on my Instagram account: @indiequeen84. It’s the Essence 2015 Christmas Advent Calendar featuring nothing but limited edition nail polish related items!
