Yay it’s mid November so it’s kind of acceptable to be talking about Christmas 🙂

I wanted to show you the Essence Merry Berry Collection a little closer up. Essence are really stepping up their game in the quality department but are still ridiculously affordable. Their Merry Berry Collection (out for Christmas) is one of the cutest I’ve seen this year so far.

irish beauty bloggerThe Essence Merry Berry Collection consists of what you see here (and another nail polish), a hair perfume, nail stickers and a spray body glitter in the cutest old school perfume bottle. A bit young for me, but I think they would make great stocking fillers for some younger girls. There’s also some individual lashes which is a cool addition.

I’ll give you a closer look at what I have.

There’s two single eyeshadows to choose from. They will set you back €2.49 and are both really pretty wearable shades.

There’s a shimmering highlighting powder. Shimmering Stars will cost you €4.09.

The Merry Berry Collection also contains four nail polishes in the cutest packaging. The formula of these polishes is really good. You could actually get away with a one coat application if you were in a real hurry. They are €2.49 each.

As you would have guessed, they are really pretty berry shades, and the formulation is really smooth and opaque. ‘Red Rocks’ is matte pinky red and the other too have a more of a shined finish.

    • Agreed I am in love with the nail polish bottles. I just realised I wrote down the wrong matte. The ‘Red Rocks’ is the matte formula. Duh to me!! Thanks so much though Sharon xxx

  1. I love your photo set up – so festive! I’m obsessed with the highlight, it’s gorgeous and that gold top coat looks lovely but I don’t have it. Must have a goo next time I pass a stand.

    • Aww thanks Dani, much appreciated 🙂 I think the varnishes are my fave, the gold is really pretty and applies surprisingly easy not too much faff 🙂 xxx
