Essence's Cinderella Collection - Highlighter-01 Glass Slipper & Blush 01 So this is Love - review & swatches

So every single girl used to be a fan of any fairy tale. How can we forget Cinderella.... Oh my love, what a beauty! Her smile, kindness, helping others make her an ideal personality for all little girls.

Recently (March 2015), Hollywood, re created this story in a movie, after that venture, every single brand start to launch and promote new Cinderella collection by following the Cinderella story theme.

On that must hyped Cinderella's holly wood movies's theme, Essence Cosmetics they launched some limited edition Cinderella Collection

Our very own beauty brand Essence Pakistan recently launched "Cinderella Collection" (October 2015), how is it possible i cant get something from this collection. Immediately without any delay i picked the much hyped Cinderella Highlighter and Blusher .

So here i am going to share my experience with these beauty babies:

  01 Glass Slipper is a stunning (Highlighter): When i saw this highlighter at Essence page, i immediately fall over Floor, "Hayoo rabba aye a v gaya tey sanoo kissi ney dasiya v nahee ...... Aahooo".

Without a second i immediately search out from where i can get this.  'Currently Essence's this collection is only available on some online stores.  I got mine from beauty bar.

The packaging is sturdy and super cool in a acrylic see through round pan.  I truly love love love the 3d images of white roses on the surface of the highlighter.  These 3D flowers wont allow me to touch the highlighter, as i dont want to touch those if i will its image will be ruined, but as i was so desperate to try this one so with heavy heart i try this highlighter with a single finger and very lightly and softly.

Product Description:
Essence is famous due to different variety of the products/ranges and best part is they focused youth, due to this their products quality is excellent and tendency of the product is as per young skin/face. So people can buy products without any fear of being part of "very loud color" or very "Harsh" result.  This highlighter is exactly a true example of their brand strategy.

Its come in powder form and texture is really buttery, smooth and luxury. Less is more perfect fit for it.

You can apply this with finger, small tapered or fan brush. It gives the equal result, but i personally love to apply with fan brush as its results are quick and easy to apply on cheek bones <3
It has NO fall out .... Yes... i can swear .... Zero fall out... Damn.....

A perfect definition of this highlighter:

White buttery powder based highlighter having hint of shimmer, elegantly carry the beauty of the highlighting tone popping up cheeks without making any noise.

01 So this is love (Blusher):
Packaging is Mind blowing, i must say my ideal one a cardboard packing carrying the Cinderella theme all over the blusher.  When you open the lid you found the printed  Fairy God mother on it .... Allllllaaaaaa... who cares for mirror when you have such amazing image on the lid.

The Pan is quite big and perfectly fit in the box.  Texture is solid-powdery.  The color is Rosy pink with little hint of  silver shimmer, which is only visible in pan, but wont gives any lashkara over the cheeks. <3
As i am a blusher lover so i must apply blusher with brush not less than three strokes over my rosy cheeky look. :D again its up to you what type of blusher effect you want over your cheeks, lighter in day time or some dramatic in evening or an event.

I am really very impressed with both beauty babies, easy to carry, pocket friendly with amazing high quality results.  Its cost me Rs. 650/- each only.

Beauty Bar online Store - Review:
My experience with their team is good. I placed order through their face book page, and they manage to placed order from their web site by themselves.  Being a beauty lover i mostly poked them a lot for product knowledge, availability etc. but these guys are very humble to answer me. So highly recommended to buy stuff from them.  You can get updates from their face book page Beauty Bar.

Products purchased by me.  I write this review by myself for public awareness, i applied products, used them and done a complete market research by myself. Nobody pay me any single penny for this, so my point of views are honest and unbiased.

 I am open for discussion and would love to talk more about any single point. So please share your views/points, i would love to answer :)
