Summer Break

I'm getting lousier and lousier with titles, I really have no idea what to name my posts anymore~

I was thinking of Discontinued: Summer Break for today's feature, as it's no longer sold in stores.... I think it's discontinued from their recent Beach Cruisers collection.

I've still decided to post about Summer Break ($5.35) though, in hopes that they may still be available to purchase at some Priceline stores.

It's a gradient blush guys! Yes! A gradient blush!

I really liked the look of this blush when I first saw it as a part of their collection's release. Never really thought too much about it though. I was worried it may not be pigmented and Priceline never had testers. Didn't seem like I needed another blush anyways.

However, after receiving this to trial, it quickly became my most-reached for blusher as of recent! I've been loving coral FOTD's and my favourite lippy to go to would be Sportsgirl Pout About It Lipstick in Fruity Tingle.

The only problem I have with wearing this shade is that, I have zero blusher to match its tone. The coral blushers I own are just very off, and you see, I have this thing with making sure that my lippy and blusher are 100% matched (never will you see me with pink cheeks and coral lips).

Wearing: Coral shades

Summer Break is such a beauty though. A spectrum, as you could see, from red to a light coral. Adds to my collection of corals AND makes itself the first red in my collection! Yay!

And the pigmentation... thumbs up!

The long-lasting power lasts on my dry/normal skin throughout the day, so that's good too. Can't find any fault in this one, except that the packaging is a tad flimsy. Drop and you can greet it bye-bye..

Wearing: Coral shades

Definitely a keeper, and one I'd recommend if you're after some convenient corals!

P.S. I hope the colour shows up on your screens!! Eeeeep.

  1. I didn't know Essence had a gradient blush, it looks gorgeous! But I'm sad that it's already discontinued?! What a shame, I wish I knew about it sooner :(

  2. This looks so pretty! I was tempted to buy it, but I already own the gradient blush from their permanent collection so I thought I best not. I'm glad you're loving it though :)
