Spotted: Essence 50's Girls Reloaded

Hey everyone,
when I went to the drugstore this weekend, I also saw the new Essence LE, called 50's Girls Reloaded. It's nautical-themed and I believe it was due to the beginning of July, but my drugstore didn't get it earlier. Now I can tell you what I think about it!
Here *click* you can find an overview of the products.
This LE contains 5 nail polishes, 3 eyeshadow duos, one double-ended brush, 2 lipsticks, a translucent powder and 3 eyeliner pencils.
The polishes come in really pretty colors, shimmers and cremes. I got one of them, a blue-toned gray with a cool pearl. It's called 05 You're A Heartbreaker. It was opaque with 2 easy coats, and it's really pretty. A NOTD will follow soon. The bottle reminds me of Sephora by OPI polishes, and the colors all look a little different in real life than they do in the promo pics.

The eyeshadow duos had testers and they all looked pigmented and nice. I bought the shade 01 I'm A Marine Girl, which is a nude shimmery shade and a navy blue with a pearl. The light shade reminds me a lot of China Glaze - Knotty in eyeshadow form ;) They're both pigmented and soft, not crumbling or anything. An EOTD will be up soon.
The double-ended brush looked nice, and Essence brushes are always really soft, but I didn't think it was something I had to have. So a pass for this one!
Concerning the lipsticks, they were already raved about online, and I definitely wanted to have a look at them. Unfortunately they were already sold out at my drugstore :/ I might get the chance to see them somewhere else, and then I'll tell you about it :) But I'm not sure whether I have to have the colors.
The powder looks really white and not translucent in the pot, so I was a little scared. And it's also nothing I really need.
Last but not least, the eyeliner pencils. I didn't get one of them, either, because the color's weren't too special, and I barely use eyeliner pencils.

I'm really content with the stuff I got, they're pretty things :)
Did you get anything from this LE, too?
Until next time,
xoxo, Misch


  1. I like one of the lipsticks in a light coral colour, but I didn't get it so far. You chose a very nice eyeshadow duo!

  2. @Salander: yes, I was looking for that one, too. Hopefully I can get a look at it :)

  3. I'd like to take a look at the polish in You're a hearbreaker (to see if I have to have it, hehe). Is it comparable to any others you have or seen?
    The brush might come in handy for travelling and the e/s you got seems quite pigmented.
    As for the lipsticks, I prefer those to the ever present lipglosses, which I honestly find quite boring.

  4. @marox: I'm already wering it, pictures will be up tomorrow or the day after tomorrow :) A comaprison will be up, too!
    You're right, the lipsticks are way better than the lipglosses they always have!

  5. Hi I'm Kathi and I think your blog is the most beautyful blog of the world!!! I've a blog too.

  6. @Kathi: what a surprise, don't I know you?! :D haha <3
