Essence Oz the Great and Powerful – review swatches

This week Dischem at Somerset Mall finally got the Oz – The Great and Powerful range.

I got myself the cream blush, the highlighter powder and tested each of the crackling nail polishes in the range.

The highlighter powder is very similar to the twilight one in texture but the colour is less pale gold and more beige which makes it easier to blend into the skin and get a beautiful glow. The cream blush is really easy to blend into the skin. It is a bit of a strange shade as it’s a bit more orange on the skin than it looks in the container. But over all I’m very happy with it.

michelle-6499I love the detail to the texture imprinted on the highlighter powder. Really beautiful scripting.

The range included 5 crackling nail polishes. And I managed to test all 5.

I’m very impressed with their even cracking effect. I’ve been disappointed in the past by Essence’s white and silver crackling polishes, so it was great to see none of the shades were duds. The gold is gorgeous, the metallic blue so beautiful on. The red isn’t as opaque as I would’ve liked it (you can see it let a lot of the colour underneath). I ended up picking the teal (01 Master of Illusion) as I have nothing else like it in my collection. I’d love to also get the blue and gold before the range ends here.
