When I recently saw that at my local store that caters to the beauty industry professionals they were putting a new Essie display, I was immediately interested.
Once I asked the sales assistants, I discovered that this was not the regular Essie line that they would be displaying, but the Essie Professional Application line.
After a bit of google fu, I did find that L’Oreal does have both Essie and Essie Professional as brands. Also, I was told by the girls at the store that these Essie nailpolishes have some differences when it comes to formula, brush, number of shades available and production site when compared to the retail Essie nailpolishes.
I have just been back from a short trip in which I took advantage of many stores to which I usually do not have access.
As you may guess from the picture above, I visited the MAC Pro store, Sephora, Muji and the airport duty free store.
From MAC Pro store I got some products that I had been eyeing for a while: some eyeshadows, a couple blushes cannisters, sculpt powder, a brush, face and body in white and the fantastic brush canisters.
At Sephora I got my first NARS products, my first setting spray, some Make Up For Ever products and got two samples of the loved/hated Glamglow masks.
At Muji I got the stackable jars that I love to keep pigments in and at the duty free store I got the Essie polishes.
