Beauty budget brand, Essence, has created a Twilight Breaking Dawn 2 Collection to celebrate the release of the movie. This isn’t the first time Essence has embraced Twilight as they have had another collection inspired by the film.
I generally like Essence and although some of my fandom has cooled when it comes to Twilight I still like the overall idea of this collection. It’ll be a little tricky to locate as Ulta is the only US store I know of that sells Essence but keep an eye out for it in store.
I went to Ulta this weekend and they sadly, didn’t have the collection. I have my eye on the bright red blush that was released with the collection.
My other lemming? The Breaking Dawn Lipgloss which I was lucky enough to get a sample of!
Hard Candy Lite Bright Whipped Brightening Concealer ($6) is a new whipped click pen concealer that launched for Fall/Winter 2012. Hardy Candy markets the formula as an illuminating concealer to brighten eyes and reduce the appearance of dark circles.
I’m a complete concealer h0r so of course I had to get my hands on this as soon as humanly possible. After a variety of trips to the
evil empire Walmart I was finally able to track this down. Believe me heading to Walmart more than once is like removing teeth from my mouth without anesthetic, god help me. But for concealer I was willing to do it.
Let’s take a look!
E.L.F. Studio Long-Lasting Lustrous Eyeshadow ($3) is a new shimmering cream shadow release from the brand available in seven shades. That’s the problem by the way…seven shades? We need more variety guys! These rock!
These soft, fluffy mousse-like shadows are incredibly lightweight and have the perfect amount of lovely sparkle for the Holidays.
Take a look!
The MAC Glamour Daze Holiday 2012 Collection features five shades of limited edition lipglass. I actually didn’t run across a shade I had to own from this lot but I’m heading to counter sometime this week to check out the other three that I haven’t yet seen in person.
I did get my hands on Talk Softly to Me and Flight of Fancy but unsure if you technically need either.
Take a look! Perhaps you’ll find a shade to love.
Tarte LipSurgence Collector’s Set in It’s a Wonderful Life is a QVC Exclusive Set for Holiday 2012. No worries if you love this set and dislike shopping QVC as Tarte has a few renditions of it available at a variety of locations such as Sephora and Ulta.
This set features five full size Tarte Lip Surgence Natural Lip Tints in a variety of shades for $34. It’s quite a deal considering all of the tints are full size and should you buy one it would set you back $24. So for an extra $10 you can get four more tints!
