Dark Romance Collection from Essence

Press Samples

Hey guys! Today I will be sharing the new Dark Romance collection from Essence! This collection consists of 3 nail polishes, 2 lip products, 1 eye pencil, 1 cream highlighter & some temporary tattoos! So let's jump right in! 
First up is the temporary body tattoos. I really think these are adorable. I really enjoy the wings & flowers. I also really would have liked to shown you how well they work, however I really want to save them for closer to Halloween! These were a cute addition to the collection! 

All three of these polishes only needed two coats each.
Red Romance - A deep red with brown undertones. It dries to more of a semi-matte finish more then a full on matte finish. 
Gothic Gold - A silvery gold that is very gritty to the touch.
Dark Night Starlight - A beautiful deep purple with a light purple iridescents to it as well as fushcia & blue shimmers & tiny little lilac micro flakes. Sidenote: Grrrrr! This one keeps photographing blue when it's green a deep purple with a strong blue undertone

Cream Highlighter - Light Up - A creamy whitish base with iridscent red shimmers. It has a very smooth texture & is very easy to work with.


Glitter Eye Pencil - Foggy Love - A grey with brown undertones & silver glitters. There isn't to much glitter & upon first application you can really see the silver glitters until you pat it with your finger or use the smudger end.

Lipstick - Red Romance - A vampy cream berry shade. For some reason I thought this would have been matte however it's not. This lipstick is made with the long lasting formula & packaging. .

Lipgloss Effect - Black Shadow - A clear base lipgloss with tiny flecks of black, gun metal, fushcia & blue shimmers. I tried it on it's on & it's not something I would suggest. I however did love it over the Red Romance lipstick. It deepend the shade for more of a vampy look.

Allover opinnion, I love this collection. It's being released at the perfect time considering Fall & halloween are on their way. It's a super fun & vampy collection that helps everyone get a little more excited about the changing of the seasons. 

Essence is exclusively sold in Canada at Shoppers Drug Mart & this collection should be available now or very soon. Sadly I don't have actual dates, & even if I did, you shoppers could be super behind like my local one. So just keep an eye out!
