Essence Colour & Go - Gorgeous Bling Bling

Pin It
The amazing Alex or Sparkly as I like to think of her, sent me an absolutely AMAZING Autumn shade from the new Essence Colour & Go range.

Now, being a kiwi, I've never seen or smelled or tasted pumpkin pie (we put meat in our pies people!!! The best filling there is - and bro we are good at it! Ok, we do make apple and christmas mince pies, but sweet pies aren't a big thing here, it's all about the meat baby, STEAK & CHEESE or PEPPER STEAK and you really can't beat a kiwi MINCE & CHEESE.)
SHOUT OUT DRURY BREAD BASKET! They've been keeping me fat since 1993 :)
Ok back to the subject of pumpkin pies; Gorgeous Bling Bling looks like the perfect pumpkin pie burnt orange. Well, it looks like how I imagine a pumpkin pie should look from film/tv and books...

All you Americans can decide for yourself and let me know if I'm right.

Essence Gorgeous Bling Bling



Gorgeous Bling Bling is a perfect burnt orange (pumpkin pie) with irregular gold flecks. It reminds me of Essie As Gold As It Gets in terms of the gold flake glitter. The formula and application was great, 2 coats for full coverage. The new bottle and cap shape are way more ergonomic and the brush is really wide, flat and curved at the end, which made for the perfect application. I actually thought the brush was too wide when I first saw it but I was completely wrong! It was amazing, even though I have small nail beds. The curved end gave me near perfect cuticle curve too - the pictures show zero clean up!!!!!!!

I think everyone needs GBB in their lives!

So how good is pumpkin pie and what is your favourite pie guys? Am I missing out on sweet pies in a major way?



  1. I'd say it looks like a good pumpkin pie color which I love! But my favorite pie is key lime pie with a graham cracker crust - that one is delicious in the summer!

  2. OMG I'm so glad you liked it, this looks amazing on you!


  3. Now I want meat pie and pumpkin pie!

  4. This is definitely on my to-buy list! Speaking of pies, Marie Callendar's has some of the best pies EVER! :)
