Essie Eternal Optimist

Natural "light", flash (this picture is the closest to the reality)

Natural "light", flash

Natural "light"

15 ml (0,5 oz), exp. date: 30 months after opening, made in USA.

From Spring collection 2009.

Contains Formaldehyde Resin.

Colour: peachy pink beige. Reminds me of the Indian red tea with milk. :)

Finish: creme. I would call it milky! :)

Application: very smooth application , 2 coats is enough for a full coverage.

Retail price: ranges between 5 -8 USD.

Pros: perfect coverage, easy application, nice brush, pretty bottle, nice shade, list of ingredients.
Cons: the fact that it's not widely available here!

PS Pretty neutral nude shade suitable for office. Can give "mannequin hands" effect if your hands (like mine nowadays) are a little bit on the red side. :)
