Essence ''BRIT-TEA'' limited edition (first impressions & swatches)

Hi everyone!

After a looooong time here I am again. I am so busy latelly, so I don't have time to blog.
This colection is probably on many blogs by now, but I'm gonna write about it anyway.

Everyone who knows me knows that I'm obsessed with Essence limited editions, ecpecially if it's cute and girly. So I again fell for this one.

First I'm gonna start with these cute rose shaped earring set, which contains two pairs of earrings in rose and pink colour.

price: 2,19 €

Next one is lip balm, which is packed in a cute small box with a flower opening.

price: 2,49 € for 6g/0.21oz

What does Essence say?
- Beauty gift… the balm pampers your lips and gives them a subtle touch of pink at the same time. Thanks to the cute packaging with a flower opening, this lip balm isn’t just a care highlight - it’s lovely to look at, too.

What I think?
- For me it's very similar to Nivea lip butter raspberry kiss, both are exactly the same colour and the texture is pretty much the same. Nivea one smells like raspberry and this one smells more like vanilla with a little bit of raspberry and has sweet taste. It makes my lips soft and gives them nice light pink colour, as you can see on the swatch bellow.

I also bought two lipglosses. One is apricot and the other one is pink colour.

price: 1,99 € each for 4ml/0.13fl.oz

What does Essence say?
- Tea or coffee? Apricot and pink with iridescent shimmer particles create a cool, shiny finish on your lips. The long-lasting formula feels wonderfully pleasant and offers subtle color dispersion.

What I think?
 - They are very easy to apply and don't stick my lips togerther. I like the smell of both, but I prefer the pink one, because it has much less glitter and it's more milky.

So far I haven't had any illuminating base yes, so I decided to bought this one to try it.

price: 2,79 € for 30ml/1.01fl.oz

What does Essence say?
- Party glow… the illuminating base gives your face a natural, subtle shimmer and a beautiful, radiant complexion. It can be applied as a primer underneath your make-up or used on its own – either way, a subtle glow is guaranteed.

What I think?
- I like the smell of fresh roses. It's quite runny but it doesn't bother me that much. It blends out nicely. I haven't tried it under make up yet so I don't know how it works, but I did try it on my face and i like it. It makes my skin fresh and radiant and it doesn't dry out my skin.

Here is how it looks:

I love brushes from Essence, thats why I bought this one to try it and it's cute too.
price: 2,19 €

The brush has two ends, one thinner and other thicker. The bristles are very soft.

And the last but not the least, nail file with cute tea cups print.

price: 1,39 €

The nail file is small and practical to keep it in your purse and grab it whenever you need it. It's rough enough to easily file your nails with it.

Have you bought any of these products? Which one is your favorite?

Thank you for reading! :)
