Spotted: Essence Reading For Boarding LE

Hey everyone!
Yesterday I found Essence's Ready For Boarding LE at out local drugstore. It's themed around the topic traveling.
This LE contains 1 beauty bag, 2 double-ended eye pencils, 2 lip and cheek cremes, 5 nail polishes, 1 base coat, 1 eyeshadow palette and hand&body wipes. Here *click* you can see an overview of the products.
The beauty bag is really cute in the style of a postcard, and if I had needed one, I would have gotten it. But I don't need it that badly :D
The double-ended eye pencils are nice colors, they're light and wearable. But I do think that you could get these colors with other brands as well, or in the permanent line.
The lip and cheek cremes are both really vibrant shades! I got the berry pink one, called 01 Sending You Kisses. It's a matte color, and very cool-toned. Pigmentation is great, and I can't wait to test it :)
The nail polishes are all pretty colors, but a bit too pastel-toned for my liking. I got the denim blue shade, it's a very purple-leaning creme, and it's called 04 Via Airmail. Swatch is 2 coats.
The base coat is one that is supposed to enable you to peel of your nail polish in one piece. That is not good for your nails, and I have no idea why they do a product like that! But I'm still gonna google for reviews, because I'm curious who tried it :D
The eyeshadow palette is really pretty and I actually managed to take a picture of the swatches I made at the store! I really liked some of the shades, but not enough to buy the whole thing. But take a look at it, pigmentation is really good and the colors are pretty :)
Last but not least, the hand&body wipes. Theoretically a nice idea, but nothing I need.
After all, I'm not utterly smitten but it is a nice LE.
What do you think of it?
xoxo, Misch

  2. I like the lip and cheeks creme, but I need to finish all the cream products that I have. I am worried about them because of the hot.
