A huge thanks to reader icrimsonlipzi for letting me know that Chic Profile has posted all of the new Spring 2013 product launches from Essence, as well the Spring 2013 Limited Edition New In Town Collection!
The international launch date for all of these products is February 2013 at Ulta (since Essence is a German brand, the "international launch date" is the date when those outside of Germany will see these products), so we only have to hold tight for a little while longer.
Here's just a sampling for what you can expect to see next month!

Colour & Go Nail Polish New colours! From orange to dark purple to two new blue and green shades – things are about to get colourful this spring with seven new colour & go nail polishes. The brilliant gel-shine finish guarantees an extremely glossy look and thanks to the extremely fast drying time, you’ll have perfect nails in a flash. The patented quick & easy brush is particularly flat to make application even easier. Without damaging ingredients such as formaldehyde, toluene and softening phthalates. The 8ml bottle has a cool essence design – with the usual colour-coded cap in the corresponding nail polish colour. Available in seven new and a total of 44 trendy shades.NEW SHADES: Flashy pumpkin, That’s what I mint, Miss Universe, Prom-Berry, Upper green side, We rock the green, Hello Marshmallow!
Nude Glam Do it nude: the new nude glam nail polishes dazzle with a gel-shine finish as well as a quick-drying and long-lasting innovative formula. The two new soft nude shades are slightly transparent if you apply just one layer and offer more coverage with a second layer. Either way, perfect nail polish results are guaranteed! For an individual nude look that’s always glamorous and up-to-date.SHADES: 07 Mit claim, 08 Peach & Cream

As of the time of this post, I do not have US pricing on any these new products, but I think it's safe to assume they'll be similar to existing Essence products (between $1.99 and $3.99 each).
