Essence eyeshadows with hairbands

 18.03.2015

To be honest I haven't tried many Essence products. At the moment I am loving one of their lipsticks and one of their blushes. I will write about them soon. I saw these new Essence eyeshadows which come with a hairband as a gift and I decided to try them. The packaging is very interesting and attractive and I know that the teenage girls will like it.

There's a lot of shades in the range and they are quite affordable - the price is around 2 €. I bought 11 tiffunny and 14 chilli vanilli. These eyeshadows look quite big but actually you get only 2,5 g. of product. They are advertised as being super soft and long-lasting.

The shade 11 tiffunny is a grey glitter. This eyeshadow was basically what I expected - packed with glitter that ends up all over your face and not very pigmented. If you need a crazy shimmery eyeshadow for a party and you don't want to spend a lot of money this may me exactly what you are looking for.

The other shade 14 chilli vanilli was a much bigger disappointment. I tend to use colors like this one a lot - as a brow highlighter and for blending. 14 chilli vanilli actually has a very interesting finish - somewhere between a satin and a frost. My problem is the formation - very powdery and not pigmented at all. You can get a good idea from the photos.

I am usually not overly critical when it comes to affordable products, but for a little bit more money you can purchase an Inglot eyeshadow with a good quality. What 's your opinion about the Essence eyeshadows?

The chili vanilli looks too light (from what I can see) but the other one is a good color!

See you lovely xx
