Spotted: Essence Hugs & Kisses LE

Hey there!
Today I'd like to shade my thoughts about Essence's Hugs & Kisses LE, which is a Valentine's Day themed one. It's quite a big LE!
This LE contains 1 eyeshadow palette, 2 glitter eyeliners, 1 lip scrub, 2 lip tints, 1 blush, 8 nail polishes, 1 set of nail stickers, 1 pair of fake lashes and one perfume in 2 sizes.
Here *click* you can see all of the promo pictures!
The eyeshadow palette looks really cute with its packaging, and the shades are also sweet spring-like colorful shades. Not so much what I would wear, but certainly cute :)
The 2 glitter eyeliners are cute, but not so much my taste.
The lip scrub comes in a little red pot. It has a jelly-like consistency and a fruity, sweet scent. I can't wait to try this one out! Super curious how it will exfoliate my lips. It was 1,95 Euros and is called 01Be My Valentine.
The lip tints come in super bright shades, hot pink and red. They don't look like they contain any kind of shimmer. I've heard great things about them, but I figured I wouldn't wear them often enough.
The blush is as the main color a light cool-toned pink shade with a silvery and very fine shimmer. On top of this, it has the letters L, O, V and E in the shades pink, violet and green. At first I thought they were just an overspray, but turns out they actually have a color pay-off! It should be interesting how the green mixes in when you wear it :D I'll be testing it! The blush was 2,45 Euros and is called 01 Dating Prince Charming.

The nail polishes are 4 bright creme shades and 4 glitter toppers. They all looked nice, and they're actually mini bottles with just 5ml! I ended up buying just my favorite one from the glitter toppers, called 04 Sunshine And Red Roses. It's a clear base packed with small red glitter, a couple of blue and silver ones in there, and big red heart-shaped ones as well. For the swatch I did 2 coats. It was 1,45 Euros.
The nail stickers are really pretty, but you guys know I prefer free-hand nail art.
I also don't really use fake lashes, so I left them at the store.
Last but not least, the perfume. For me the scent is too sweet, didn't like it that much.

After all, it's a great big LE, the theme is awesome and all of the products are great for that. There should be something for everyone!
What do you think of it?
