Thousands of screaming fans can’t be wrong – Twilight is a big deal. Just in time for the release of the final instalment of the Twilight Sage, Essence have released a new collection in the movie’s honour.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 collection pays homage to the vampy, sultry looks the movie inspires. Blood red lips, shimmering skin and smouldering eyes, the collection includes all the products you’ll need to channel your inner Bella.
The loose pigment eye shadows (RRP $4.95) are perfect for creating that deep, soulless stare. The powder is a little hard to control and has a tendency to smudge, but with careful application you’ll have shimmering Bella Swan eyes. Available in four shades – ranging from subtle shimmer, total glitter and soft, glowing gold.
The liquid glitter liner (RRP $4.50) is perfect for highlight and defining your eyes with flair. The thin-tipped brush makes for easy application and control. Available in two shades.
The collection’s lipstick (RRP $4.50) comes in a mysterious gold shade. Rich with glittery gold particles, it doesn’t seem immediately wearable on first sight. However, the shade is quite soft and it would look lovely layered over a darker shade, or on it’s own for a mysterious and neutral pout.
The collection also includes two lipglosses (RRP $3.95) perfect for temptress kisses. With shimmery metallic finishes these are a lovely addition to any night time look. Available in two shades.
The shimmer powder (RRP $5.95) is the highlight of the collection. Even for those who aren’t on their way to channelling vampires, the soft golden powder adds a luminous glow to your skin. With no obvious particles of glittery, the powder is the perfect way to achieve that natural radiance.
The collection’s blush (RRP $5.50) is also one of the most wearable items in the collection. It comes in an elegant, deep rosy red shade that would look lovely on many skin types. It has a soft velvety finish and blends effortlessly into the skin.
No essence collection is complete without nail polishes (RRP $3.95 each). The easiest way to vamp up any look is to add daring and bold nails. The collection includes four shades – dark blues, blacks and purples as well as a subtler shimmery gold.
The limited edition collection is available exclusively from Target during November and December.
