...a DM haul and a little review!
Since last month the essence Rebels Limited Edition is in the market. First I thought, it doesn't interest me a lot, I am not a big fan of nude lipsticks and apricot rouge - but then I read some other blogs and the positive experiences the most bloggers had with that LE - and they get me hooked a bit - so I gave them a try and entered the DM-shop.
rock coat, lip & cheek pot, matte lipgloss and spiderweb mascara
1. lip & cheek pot 01 Peach PunkFirst impression: "wow - thats quite orange - I cannot suggest that this orange thingie looks natural on my cheeks..." but I was disabused. This cream blush is pretty and gives a pink shimmer on your cheeks and you can blend it perfectly.
Only two things I have to criticize:
1. the balm is sweating. It doesn't harm the product but it looks a bit yucky - its not a fact of any bad quality.
2. I felt like the rouge doesnt last the whole day - you have to refresh it from time to time...
|The rouge on my hand - a little bit too orange... but...|
|...after blending it looks pretty rosy and natural...|
all things considered its a really positive result. Blending is very easy, the balm is very smooth, economical and it smells neutral, the color is natural and gives a fresh look on your cheeks.
2. Rebels Soft Matte Lipgloss
And now to something very different than glossy lips - matte!
I bought both available colors ...
01 - mauve like a rockstar

3. The spiderlash mascara
One of the most unnecessary products out of this LE I have to say... This mascara is described as a product, which gives an unique look to your lashes and creates a special effect. With the help of the little brush you can create and define "spider's legs" - hey - thats not very difficult - I can define spider's legs with any mascara - if I don't take care in the early morning... so why, essence, why???
And besides this: I make heavy weather of mascara - and this product doesnt satisfy me in all ways - no volume, no length, no deep black I need - and NO special effect. So: FAIL!
4. The Rock Coat
Hmmm... tricky tricky to say something about that coat - I think I have to take some tests before I can make a conclusion...This coat is transparant and smokey light black with some black particles in it - it gives polish a smokey and darker look - but the little black particles are difficult to apply onto nails - the consistence of this polish is very thin.
I will do some experiments in a coming post to show you the effect of this coat - but my first impression is, that its not a polish, which sweeps me off my feet.
Hope you liked my little review - did you make experiences with this LE? Let me know!
