essence metal glam collection swatches and review

Today I have the latest essence trend edition collection for you - the metal glam collection! From the name it obviously contains metallic hues. I have a love hate relationship with essence LE products because they always sell out so darn quickly before I can get my hands on the products. I have seen the collection in stores recently so you should still be able to get your hands on the collection ;) The metal glam collection consists of metallic polishes, eyeshadows, lipgloss, a highlighter, cream blush, stick on nail stickers and stick on eyeliner. I was sent a selection of the products to try out so keep reading to see my swatches and review after the jump!

What they say:

"Metallic glam slam! the fall season is going to be dramatic, sparkly and metallic with essence. The trend edition “metal glam” creates awesome beauty looks with a true glamour factor! During the run up to the festive season, it’s ok to go a little over the top – and you’re sure to sparkle with this world of colors consisting of gold, silver, bronze, purple, apricot and green – all with a metallic effect.

In addition to a touch of shimmer for your eyes, lips, face and nails, this trend edition offers highlights like the stick on eyeliner in dramatic rosé-gold and silver, a blush with a surprising powdery-metallic finish and the stick on jewels for an amazingly glamorous look on your body!"

Girlfriend Magazine Social Network collaboration!

As a teen I was obsessed with 2 things - boys and makeup because I was never allowed to date or use makeup! I loved pop music and teen heartthrobs like Leonardo Dicaprio and would collect posters of my favourite actors like no tomorrow. I was never allowed to use makeup or nail polish much to my annoyance though except on the very rare occasion like school formals. It didn't help that I bought Girlfriend magazine religiously each month to get my beauty fix which just made me want to wear makeup more and buy products! For my overseas readers, Girlfriend is an Aussie magazine aimed at 12-17 year old teenage girls and I loved the beauty recommendations, hair how tos, fashion tips and of course the handy advice on dealing with boys ;) I'm pretty sure the mag set off my beauty addiction! I would sneakily buy makeup to wear (hello Bonnebell and Red Earth products!) when going out with friends and then I'd remove it before I got home - oh the rebellious teen I was ha.

So I am very very excited today to share the news that I'm collaborating with Girlfriend Magazine for 3 upcoming issues in their Social Network series! It's kicking off in May's issue which goes on sale this Thursday 24th 2014 with an introduction to myself and other bloggers also collaborating in the series. I'll be sharing exclusive nail related content like nail art tutorials, nail care tips and what I'm loving each month!
