Essence Me and my ice cream swatches

Hello everyone,
so yesterday I went to DM and ran into the "Me and my ice cream" Limited Edition from Essence. I looked at their stuff and decided to give the shimmer pearls and the blush cream a go... The blush cream irritated me a bit because it Looks like a baked blush, but this was part of the attraction ;-)
Today I made some swatches. You can see the blush cream on the left and the shimmer pearls on the right. I absolutely LOVE the cream blush. Very well pigmented and while it is creamy it is by no means greasy. A very nice shimmery finish. As you can see on the Picture the shimmer is subtle but very, very nice and it works greatly combined with the blusher. Also: I think the shimmer pearls smell a bit candy-esque which I like :-)
 Maybe I´ll do a Little style with them on the Weekend. I did field test it today and it lasted all day, but i look very tired today so a photo is not really an Option right now ;-) Anyway: I really recommend those two pieces from this limited Edition ;-)
