Hi loves, I wanted to share the essie 2016 Resort Collection with you guys today and I must say that this collection is GORGEOUS!
Before we get started here’s the PR excerpt to give you a little insight:
“Opulent silks. Saturated Hues. Dazzling ornamentation. This Resort season is influence by the magnificent fashion, diverse culture and sheer beauty of India. Jaipur and the taj-ma-haul to the vibrant saris at a monsoon wedding twirling during a delhi dance, there’s no end to the inspiration that gives life to essie color.
The country’s unique contract of tradition and modernism, the old alongside the new, invigorates mind, body and soul – everyone must be going guru. On the cutting edge art and commerce, India’s cities are an exhilirating rush of flavors, sights and fragrances – it captures the imagination and tantalizes the senses.
The colorful market stalls. The golden sands of the deserts. The azure waters of the western coast. India’s landscape is as beautiful and varied as its people, and its influence on global style and fashion is constantly energizing the collections of the world’s most beloved designers. Any visitor will be begging to nama-stay the night. The vivid pattern-play of today and intricate palette of spendid inspiration. It’s sure to be the trip of a lifetime.”
‘going guru’ meditative mint lime “Omm! In this meditative mint lime I may have actually discovered fashion nirvana” I freaking love this shade! If only the formula was up to par. Very thick, and globs easily with two coats. That being said, it’s such a gorg shade that I’m willing to let the formula slide…
‘delhi dance’ silky sari pink “They’re playing your song! Slip on this silky sari pink and hit the dance floor like a Bollywood superstar” With a stunning two-coat crème formula this shade is sure to please! (Beware that it photographs differently) while it is a bubble gum pink there’s a certain “dusty” tone to it.
‘nama-stay the night’ energetic Goa blue “Up all night? (wink, wink.) When you’re with this energetic Goa blue, sleep has nothing to do with it” Probably my least favourite of these four (I know, but I’m not a fan of blue) The formula is great, it levels with two plump coats… and the shade is pretty, too!
‘taj-ma-haul’ spicy marigold apricot “When you score this spicy marigold apricot, your shopping artistry becomes a wonder of the world” Okay, I LOVE this shade!! Not only is the formula amazing, this dusty apricot is one-of-a-kind… and I kind of can’t stop wearing it.
The Resort Collection will officially be available as of March 29 in salons, drugstores and other beauty destinations across Canada. (Although you have seen pictures floating around for the past month because of some naughty rule-breaking people.. I also heard it’s available at Ulta.com in the US).
IMO, this whole collection is a must-have! Which shades will you be picking up?
