Did you have a good weekend? The weather turned really chilly yesterday. Durban spoils us with the warm winter weather so when we have real winter weather we really feel it. Luckily I prefer cold weather to hot weather so I don’t mind at all.
I mentioned here that I have a few of the Essence updates where certain colours were ‘upgraded’ and slightly changed. For the most part I really like the old and the new and can happily have both in my collection. This is the first one that is different for me. Let me show you.
The old Hello marshmallow is a pastel lilac with a subtle shimmer. Pretty much gorgeous in my opinion. The new Hello marshmallow is just a little meh. It looks gorgeous in the bottle. It looks like a lilac version of Pink & proud (which made me very happy – I love Pink & proud) The first coat is barely visible but builds up well with the second coat. The colour just seems a bit….meh. I don’t know. I don’t hate it but I definitely don’t love it. I much prefer the old version to the new. Application didn’t have any issues on either.
Both of these are 2 coats with no topcoat. Again, good application on both.
I might be a little too harsh on the new version. What do you think? Which one do you prefer? I do think the Essence range is missing a good lilac creme so I definitely think there is a place in the collection for the old version.
I hope this week treats you well.
