Essence Hugs & Kisses LE: More Than Words & Dreams For Sale

As soon as I saw the glitter toppers in the press release of the new collection from Essence "Hugs & Kisses", I fell in love with all of them. It seemed to good to be true and it was. Last week I found a small display with the collection and I was able to look over the glitter toppers in person. In addition I looked up some swatches on Google, just to make sure. So there seems to be quite a difference between the press release and the real bottles. They're basically clear bases with glitter, which is nothing special. But since I checked the swatches on Arinas Beautywelt, I knew I wanted to have two of them anyway. So I bought More Than Words (left) and Dreams For Sale (right) for 2.50 CHF each. I applied both of them over one coat of Essie - Licorice and I used two coats each to get the desired result. On top is one coat of BTGN Top Sealer.

You wouldn't guess it by looking at the bottle, but this is quite a colorful glitter! Main color is green, but in the right light you will also spot orange, blue and yellow. The formula was alright, the two coats took a bit longer to dry though. 





Essence - More Than Words

This one is not as colorful as the first one and it is mostly orange toned glitter. It reminds me of the orange flakie top coats, which is a pity because I hoped for a glitter in antique pink. Application was about the same here: average formula and drying time. 




I'm quite happy with both of them, I didn't have any glitters like these yet and I love both over black. I might try them over different colors, especially Dreams For Sale over Dark Blue, Purple, Green etc. But I think they look their best over black! Make sure to check the swatches before you buy one!

  14. I'm not so "crazy" about glitters, but these two look really beautiful. Essence - Dreams For Sale looks like a galaxy in a bottle, I agree with Elizabeth :-) But, I like Essence - More Than Words a little bit more, it is magical! :-)
