Essence Metal Glam and Beauty Beats Collections

Two new Essence collections just launched over here in Switzerland. The first is Metal Glam for creating glamorous looks in the run-up to the festive season.

The Metal Glam eyeshadows (in 8 shades) are a new addition to the permanent range. The four shades in this collection are part of the permanent line. When swatched, these were less metallic and rich than I had expected so they did not tempt me at all.

The Gold Topper 01 Steel-ing The Scene is a clear polish containing irregular gold flakes for jazzing up any nail polish.

The collection also includes four nail polishes with a metallic finish.

The Stick On Jewels are basically tattoo stickers.

Stick On Eye Liners in gold and silver.

The cream blush 01 Glam-Me is a pretty peachy highlighter with a soft gleam.

The obligatory Highlighter Powder 01 Gold Digger is described as a "light, almost white-gold highlighting powder with a soft cream texture and subtle shimmer pigments gives your face a fresh and glamorous glow". I purchased this and the cream blush, both of which were just under 5 Swiss francs each.

Lipglosses in 01 Petal To The Metal, 02 Best Dressed and 03 Glam-Me.

The second collection is Beauty Beats, a tie-in with Justin Bieber's Believe tour (*GAG*).

Yet another shimmer powder. This one is 01 Swaaag!.

Lipglosses in 01 Groupie At Heart, 02 Eenie Meenie and 03 I'm Backstage. The pale mint lipgloss 03 I'm Backstage was the only product in this collection that looked remotely interesting.

Paperprint manicure in 6 designs. The collection also includes a paperprint manicure transfer solution.

Blush in 01 Groupie At Heart.

Mono Eyeshadows in 01 Baby, Baby, Ooh!, 02 I'm Backstage and 03 As Long As You Love Me.

Essence will be releasing a Superheroes collection of nail products next in November.
