Essence Limited Edition Beach Cruisers: Review and Swatches

by Mira on April 23, 2014

Happy Wednesday babes! I’m always happy when I can get my hands on a new limited edition. Yes essence has a new one the Beach Cruisers! I bought two eyeshadows Life Is A Beach and Girls Just Wanna Have Sun and the multi color blush Summer Break. And while I was at it I bought the mascara Get Big Lashes too (it’s not from this limited edition). I’m not wearing it on the photos cos I couldn’t find it anymore. Searched everywhere and asked everyone but it was gone. Later my sister asked me: Have you found it? I said no. She turned her head and said but it’s over there. Yes I have searched this place five times and it wasn’t there! I said you have put it over there just now! She denied it. Well I think she played a prank on me or we have ghosts in the house that love to play pranks. So this mascara is the L’oreal False Lashes just for the record. Let’s get back to the LE! I have to say I’m a bit disappointed with the stuff I bought. The eyeshadows don’t glide smoothly over my lids and you need to use a lot of product cos the pigmentation isn’t the best. It’s a wet and dry one and usually the wet application will boost the color but I haven’t seen much but it really long-lasting and I had difficulty to remove it again. The blush is highly pigmented and gives off a lot of color but the application is difficult and the color isn’t my cup of tea. It also highlights every single blemish and unevenness you might have (or not have). I will give it another try and maybe I’ll change my mind or I won’t but personally I would save my pennies!

Great post!
lovely makeup 🙂

Bárbara Marques April 23, 2014 at 11:27 am

I actually think that they look really pretty in the pictures, but if you tell me that they’re not that great, I belive you :p

Mira April 23, 2014 at 1:26 pm

Yeah I was surprised that it looked good on the pics but I can’t help it somehow I don’t like these products 😀

Lilli April 23, 2014 at 11:29 am

Hi Mira! Im always excited when I can get my hands on a new LE by Essence! And as soon as I saw the stuff you got I was so thrilled! But reading, also so disappointed! Even though, the shades of both eyeshadows and blush are gorgeous, I wont probably purchase them if you say so. Lol for the mascara! Ahaah, I think there are ghosts or just a very “naughty” sis!:P Happy Wed my dear, kisses! xo

Mira April 23, 2014 at 1:34 pm

Lol naughty sis. I don’t know… they never do play pranks. I think it might have been a ghost 😉
Happy Wednesday sweetheart. Kisses & hugs 😀

Can’t wait to buy this blush! I love it!


Kizzy @ The Dainty Dolls House April 23, 2014 at 12:17 pm

Hiya doll, I think it looks great on you. But, I can understand you, if it’s hard to get off and highlights everything on your face, I tend not to use those products either, haha. But, the colour is very pretty on you. I hope you are having a great day, it’s a bit gloomy here, so I’m hoping the sun will come back, though I did do some shopping, so that was ok ;D xx

Mira April 23, 2014 at 2:13 pm

Hiya Kizzy! Yeah you shouldn’t!! It was sunny but now it’s gloomy too but I’ll go shopping anyway 😀

siska April 23, 2014 at 12:18 pm

wow das blush erinnert mich an eines von estée lauder, sehr schön!

Happy Wednesday to you too … sometimes it’s a shame to invest in products that d n’t like totally, but maybe on a second occasion they surprise to you …. I like your eye makeup idea, I ‘m always I’m very basic, but I like to take note of good combinations for the moment I needed and you always have good taste. Kiss

Mira April 23, 2014 at 2:12 pm

Thanks so much sweetheart. Yeah I love neutrals but from time to time I like to step out of my comfort zone 😀

Sam April 23, 2014 at 2:07 pm

Ohhh I have to get me this blush asap, it looks beautifully blended on you and the colour is so pretty and not overdone. The shadows look lovely too. Yes, how sad is that we don’t have H&M, but we do have a similar style South African brand with very trendy, cheaper clothes, although not of the best quality. I wouldn’t dress like a festival chick either but its fun to see. Thanks for your support over at mine, hope you’re having a great week so far!

Hi Mira, It’s sad that some products from this range of Essence are as good as they usually are, but the shade of blush and eye shadows are very pretty! I never used this brand as it’s not available in India but always love to try some out! Nice review! Have a nice day honey, Love and kisses <3

That blush on you in photo looks lovely. Oh, that’s a pity that the quality isn’t good. Maybe that blush would look better on tan skin. Not, sure, just thinking what was the concept behind this product.

xoxo Ra

Mira April 24, 2014 at 1:24 pm

Maybe you’re right. Don’t think I will get a tan but if you are I would love to see a pic! What I really don’t like about it is the texture. I think the color looks okay 😀

Natalia April 23, 2014 at 5:50 pm

Dein Augen Make-up ist so schön bunt, gefällt mir 😀 Dass sich der Lidschatten nicht gut verteilen lässt, ist ärgerlich, aber bei dem Preis auch kein Wunder, wobei ich die Nagellacke von Essence wiederum sehr gut finde.

Ja manche Sachen sind gut und andere wieder nicht. Ich hab the orange farbenen nochmal ausprobiert und jetzt fand ich ihn gar nicht so schlecht. Lol ich glaube ich hatte einfach schlechte Laune an dem Tag 😀

Thanks for the head ups though Mira. You know, I’ve been learning of your makeups post lately. haha give that mascara to the ghost in your house, I’d love send you one lol… That’s happened to me so many times when I used to live the same house with my both sisters. Ghost taker. Much love my sweet Mira! Hugs and kisses!

Yes! Marketing something as limited edition makes it so much more exclusive, and I convince myself to buy it in case it sells out! Bummer that the products weren’t in your favoring 🙁

Schade, dass Du damit gar nicht zufrieden bist, liebe Mira, denn ich finde, die Farben sehen schon sehr genial gut an dir aus. Für gelben Lidschatten habe ich nämlich generell eine Schwäche! Vielleicht bewährt er sich ja bei Deiner zweiten Chance doch noch. Und was bei Euch alles passiert, da bekomme ich ja fast eine Gänsehaut 🙂
