This summer Essence takes us to Cuba, the country of rhythmic dances and colourful Cadillacs to spread Caribbean flair with summery colours and tropical packaging designs. Essence Slovenija was kind enough to send me some products to try out and since Cubanita collection just hit the stores, here are my first impressions.
Essence TE Cubanita cosmetic bag La banana Cubana* 3.29€
Based on the promo shots I was expecting this bag to be small but you can actually fit quite a lot in it. The material is soft yet sturdy and feels very natural, like a thick cotton blend. Perfect to store all the knickknacks that usually lay in your bag or as a minimalist makeup bag.
Essence TE Cubanita wet look lip lacquer 01 Kisses from Havana* 2.59€
Kisses from Havana is a highly pigmented lip lacquer. It goes on evenly and isn't sticky. It has a doe foot applicator which allows a precise application. The scent is very interesting, something fruity mixed with Coca-Cola but the scent isn't strong and shouldn't bother you while wearing Kisses from Havana. The longevity is good for a glossy product but you will have to reapply it through the day. The color is bright purple, perfect for Summer.
Essence TE Cubanita baking&banana powder 01 Livin' la vida banana* 3.99€
I was very happy when I saw that the banana powder comes with a puffy pouch that prevents the powder from flying around. The banana powder is a very finely milled yellow toned powder that can be used for baking (which I don't do) or as a matte highlighter. I tried it as a lightly pigmented setting powder and it worked nice. It leaves a velvet finish on my skin while the slight yellow undertone evens out my warm toned skin.
Trend kolekcija je na voljo v drogerijah Muller, DM, Tuš, E.Leclerc, Mercator hipermarketih z Essence stojalom in spletni trgovini Click2chic.
