Essence TE Fun Fair - baked blush review

Hey ladies. You all know how much I love essence, and I was thrilled when they sent me two goodies from their brand new trend edition called FUN FAIR. I have been using and testing this gorgeous baked blush 01 RING AROUND THE ROSY for a month, so now that it hit the stores, I can write my opinion about it. 

Since pink blushes are my favourite, this one is totally up my alley. It's also shimmery/metalicy  which is a feature I also look for in blushes. When I first saw it I fell in love, but when I first tried it I fell in love even more. The pigmentation is amazing, as you can se on the picture below.

I have to admit that I kind of forgot about my other blushes and I have been using this one all the time. What I like it this blush is that it gives a nice shine to my cheeks so I don't need to use a highlighter. This comes in handy in the morning when you have to get ready for work in a hurry. The blush comes in plastic container which contain 4g of product. I think that the container is great for traveling because it's not too big and looks sturdy enough. The blush costs 3,29€ and you can order it here. This is definitely one of the best blushes I own. Thank you Essence Slovenia for treating me.

They sent me one more product from this trend edition, which I will write about in one of my next reviews.

My summer necessities

Summer is officially here so it's time for some new products. Bronzed look, bright colors, SPF..... read more about my summer necessities below. 


There is no summery make up look without bronzer. I love using Essence (TE Beach cruisers) bronzing powder, because it's matte, but it's also shimmery in the middle, so you can use it as a matte or shimmery bronzer, to get that sun kissed look. Artdeco bronzing powder is matte, and very gorgeous on the skin. Now to the bright colours, I love wearing coral nail polish in the summer. My favourites are Essie - California coral and Alessandro - VIVA LA DIVA - City Grass. As for the lipstick, my favourite shades are pink, one of my favourite is Wet 'n' wild - Mauve Outta Here. I'm sure those pretty colors are popping into your eyes, this is my first Sleek eyeshadow palette and it's called sunset. Pigmentation is amazing as you can see on the swatches. Those are actually quite wild colors for me, but I have tried some combinations on my eyes and I liked the results. I also love the packaging, it's very slim and sturdy, great for traveling.

I love trying new Slovenian products. This time I've got bath salt from the brand called Lepa Vida. I put a hand full of salt into my bath, because I tend to have problems with salt water when I go to the sea, that way I'm slowly preparing my skin for the salt. It also smells great, you can pick between different scents, mine is mediterannean. Next one is a must! I'm talking about SPF. There's a lot of them on the market, but I always tend to pick a high one. Mine is Yves Rocher Protectyl vegetal 50+. It works great for my sensitive skin and I don't get sunburned while using it. Anothes must in summer is body moisturizer. You don't want to have dry skin while wearing shorts, don't you? Currently I'm obsessing over Soap & glory the righteous butter. It's made for very dry skin, which skin on my legs sure it. I'm in love with the smell. I want a perfume that smells like that, anyone knows if it exists?

Batiste dry shampoo comes in handy on the days when you just can't bother to wash your hair. It refreshes them and makes them look clean.
Schwarzkopf GLISS hair repair oil is a great product to use on your hair after a long day at the beach. My ends are very dry, so I like to spray a little bit of this oil on them. It also helps me brush them easily.

Another SPF related item, this one is for my face. It's Clinique face cream (SPF 40). For covering up my acne I have been using Rimmel stay matte liquid mousse foundation and pressed powder non stop and I'm obsessed. I just need to get mousse foundation in a lighter shade, but that one's ok for summer. To set my foundation I love using L'occitane pivoine sublime perfectiong mist. It does it's job great in the heat, when my foundation would normally melt of my face. Lastly, there has to be a candle. This one is Yankee Candle Sun & Sand. It's a tropical beach breeze of sweet orange flower, lemony citrus, fresh lavender and powdery musk.
