Essence The Sunny Side Of The Street

First thing I have to say in this post is that I lost track of Essence trend editions. I used to know exactly which one is in drugstores, which one is next and most important what I need to check out and buy. Last week I saw two TEs in my local drugstore for the first time ever...After looking at them for a while I decided to get a blush from both of them. So today I will show you a blush from Urbaniced called The Sunny Side Of The Street and in a few days I will show you my swatches of You Sweeten My Day from Happy Girls Are Pretty.

Essence already had color splashed blushers but I never bought any of them so now is the that I have one :) The Sunny Side Of The Street is combination of two shades of pink. Together they give your cheeks nice, refreshing look, great for everyday makeup. It applies and blends nicely, there is little bit of shimmer too but not to much. 

The package is plastic but it keeps the blush well protected, it contains 8 g of product. 
In the end, I'm glad that I bought The Sunny Side Of The Street because these little things can make a girl happy and hopefully I will use it a lot. This is not a must have item ( at least for now ) but definitely great to have around.
Did you tried anything from Urbaniced? Do You like The Sunny Side Of The Street blush?

Essence brushes: Eyeshadow blender brush and precise eyeshadow brush

Essence recently had Trend Edition with makeup brushes only. I still remember the one they had last year when I was stalking my local drugstores. I was hoping I will put my hands on this one too. Unfortunately for me when I first saw Make Me Pretty display it was almost empty... I only found two brushes and bought them. I got eyeshadow blender brush and precise eyeshadow brush.

These two brushes as well as entire limited edition Make Me Pretty have pretty package with cute messages. Brushes also look cute, two that I have are with polka dots and they look very pretty!

So far I tried them few times and they are something I will use often. Eyeshadow blender brush is dense and it has short bristles but it is pretty good for applying eyeshadow. I usually apply eyeshadow on my lids with it or use it if I want to make some finish touches. It is small and it is easy to work with it. Precise eyeshadow brush is new in my collection so I'm glad I got it. I use it for my crease and it is great. It is dense and pointy which makes it great for your crease and it makes everything easier when you need to apply eyeshadow under your eyes.

I wish I found more brushes because I'm sure I would buy more. I hope Essence will have more TE like this one in future because I really like their brushes!
Did you tried Make Me Pretty LE? Do you like Essence brushes?

Maybelline Fit Me

It wasn't my plan to buy Maybelline Fit Me but I'm completely helpless when I see a discount on makeup. If it is something like Maybelline Fit Me I can't just pass by it. I'm always open to try new foundation. I bought it in winter but I made a mistake and bought it one shade too dark ( that is what happens when you only rushing and not looking ). So now when I have a tan it finally fits me ( hahah ).

Maybelline Fit Me comes in glass bottle with plastic cap and a pump which makes it easy to dose it. My favorite way to apply it is with stipple brush. It blends easily and lasts for whole day on my face. It covers very well, I would say this is medium coverage. If you don't have major skin problems it is all you need. If you need to you can build it up. The finish is a bit shiny even on my dry skin so everybody with oily skin should first try the sample. If you have dry skin you will get nice, dewy finish but if you are like me you will want to apply loose powder as well. Even though it is not too shiny I'm just not a fan.

Overall Maybelline Fit Me is a good product but honestly I can't say I'm very impressed with it. Just because I've tried better foundations ( Catrice for example. Half price and looks better on my face. Not to mention Revlon Colorstay which is in same price range but much better foundation. ) and I don't feel the need to repurchase it. I tried it, I will use it up but I'm not going back to it. 

Did you tried Maybelline Fit Me? What is your favorite liquid foundation?

Britney Spears Island Fantasy

Britney Spears Island Fantasy is one of my random buys. I definitely didn't plan it but I found great deal and I decided to get it because I figured it will be great everyday fragrance and something I can use with no mercy especially because it comes in big 100 ml bottle. Island Fantasy is summer version of Britney's Fantasy line of fragrances. Like the rest of Britney's fragrances Island Fantasy is sweet scented. First when you spray it you can smell citrus and then very quickly sweet fruity  scent.  Top notes of Island Fantasy are citruses, mandarin, clementine, red berries and watermelon. Middle notes are jasmine, violet and freesia. Base notes are musk and sugar cane. The best description of the scent would be summery and sweet. Longevity of Island Fantasy isn't something, it lasts only for few hours. In this case that is acceptable to me because I bought Island Fantasy so I can spray it without saving it. Like I said this is okay everyday fragrance but when I have some special occasion or I want to dress up Island Fantasy isn't something I would wear. However it is a nice summer fragrance.

The bottle looks very pretty and girly. Each Fantasy line bottle looks the same but it comes in different color. This one is lime / turquoise gradient, very summery and name appropriate. 
Did you tried Island Fantasy? What is your favorite summer fragrance?
