If you are a fan of Essence then you no doubt know about their "Trend Editions". These are small limited edition collections that come out every few months. Thing is in the US, the timing of these is screwy and they can be tough to find. I stumbled upon the Essence Cherry Blossom Girl Trend Edition at my local Fred Meyer last week....Gorgeous!!
WOW! The quality of these shadows is superb. They were soft, not powdery, very pigmented and the shades are so complimentary and pleasing. I can't wait to make looks with this. I really encourage you to buy this if you see it. And don't be afraid of those oranges. Orange can feel intimidating, but in my opinion it is a universally flattering color. You only need to find the way you are comfortable using it....and of course...don't over orange you look.
Unfortunately these are stupid difficult to find with any consistency. I've only found a few retailers carry Essence Trend Editions and the ones that do seem to get them at weird times. One near me was replacing this with a Trend Edition that launched in Spring 2012? I've seen Cherry Blossom at Fred Meyers in the Pac NW area, so if you know anyone, make them buy it for you....stomp your little feet and throw a hissy if you must. It's that good.
Where to Buy: ULTA (not sure they carry Trend Editions) Fred Meyer, H-E-B,
