Essence 'All about..' Eyeshadow Palettes







Hello Beauties!

I'm so sorry I've been away for about 2 weeks, I've suffered from some serious writers block but thanks to a little surprise I am back in action and ready to write for you guys! I recently received an email from the much loved make-up company essence telling me they would like to make me their blogger for the month of April! Which was a huge surprise and a massive privilege. To add to the awesomeness they also sent me a goody bag full of make-up for me to play with! The first things that caught my eye however where these eye shadow palettes! I've just realised I've named these wrong! the gold toned palette is - All about sunrise and the Nude palette is All about nudes! Stupid mistake sorry guys! 

These eye shadows really took me by surprise, on first inspection they really reminded me of The body shop's shimmer bricks? can anyone else see the resemblance? but it was the moment I swatched them I realised I was on to a really good thing! Both palettes are undeniably soft to touch and almost 'melt' when swatched! As you can see from the swatches above they are unbelivably pigmented. I tend to pick up up the 'All about sunrise' palette more as I'm really drawn to the nudes and golds for a pretty bronzed look, They blend together amazingly with minamal effort although the colour translates less on the eyelid but with the use of a primer the colour should bemore pronounced. Currently I'm not using primer but they stay on my eyelids for a good+ hours which is super impressive! 

I would highly reccomend these to anyone looking for a budget friendly alternative or just a general eyeshadow lover as they realy are beautiful! I'm not sure if essence is available online but you can deffinatly buy these in your local wilkinsons! 

Have you ever tried Essence eyeshadows?

  4. I have a few of these palettes & absolutely love them :) All About Nudes definitely is my favourite though. The only thing I dislike is the packaging, I find it breaks so easily! x
