Collection: Essence Circus Circus

When I was little, I always went to a special circus for children and I loved it! Magic has a special feeling and not only for children, most adults like the circus as well! Essence is now coming out with a new trend edition based on the circus: Circus Circus!

What Essence says:
Who doesn’t remember their exciting visits to the circus with affection?

But in december 2011 and january 2012, the products of the trend edition “Circus Circus” by Essence are the true stars of the arena! From extravagant nail stickers for magical ladies to breathtaking lip lacquers for tightrope walkers or a seductive eau de toilette for circus directors – The new Circus Circus products are sure to create a stir in the winter and party season! So raise the curtain and clear the arena for the sensational trend edition “Circus Circus” by Essence!

On to the products!

I don’t really find these colors interesting. Curious about the swatches of the gold one, though!

Hmm, not really interesting as well. Will these be with a clear or colored base?

If these glosses are as pigmented as they look, we have two winners 😀 😀

Suggested retail price: €2.99

What Vanillaa says:
Nice packaging! Really pretty 😀 I’m not completely sold on this quite yet.. I want to see swatches of this first, I’m afraid this will be too golden and/or too glittery!

Colour3 Nail Polish
What Essence says:
Get ready for the sensation of the year: the two-tone nail polish is the crowning glory of every performance. No matter whether you apply it individually or one on top of the other – These polishes make sure that you are this year’s main attraction! Available in four perfectly aligned color combinations.

What Vanillaa says:
These look so cool! I definitely like the colors 😀

Beauty Bag
What Essence says:
What would a lion tamer be without a whip? Or a circus director without a top hat? Or a magician without a wand? Exactly! And a style queen needs her beauty bag! This golden, glittering beauty bag is the ideal place to keep your favorite make-up from this trend edition close at hand at all times. So you can always freshen up for your grand appearance.
Suggested retail price: €2.49

What Vanillaa says:
I don’t really like this bag. In my opinion, it’s a litte too much.. The golden color, the shiny fabric.. Nope, I think this is a little too tacky for my taste.

There will also be some other products available, but unfortunately not in the Netherlands.
– Nail Fashion Stickers
– Eau De Toilette
– Pocket Spray EDT
You have to travel to Germany, to obtain these items! 😉

Overall:
I like this collection, but some products are sooo standard! I’m very curious about the polishes, though 😀 They could have (and should have!) included a cool multi colored nail polish (Just like Circus Confetti :D) and I would like some bolder colors, such as yellows, purples, greens and blues! 😦

Essence Circus Circus is exclusively sold at Kruidvat (the Netherlands), from December 2011 until the end of January 2012.

Your beauty addict,
