If you’re into cheap little makeup thrills, then you’d better check out this little palette if you haven’t already. : ) (Pssst, by the way, at Ulta this was $4.49!)
Essence is a German brand that is sold here at Ulta , Walgreens, and Fred Meyer. You can see more about the brand at their website.
Here is what they say:
“they each contain eight gorgeous new colors for ultimate glamour and style. thanks to the practical mini-format, they are a loyal companion when you’re on-the-go, too! trendy colors from yellow to orange and blue as well as expressive contrasting colors in black, grey and brown are sure to give any look the desired wow-effect.available in 01 south beach and 02 long beach.”
This really is a great travel palette… it’s nice to have 8 color options is such a small compact.
I think these shadows have decent quality… they are not amazing by any means, but they are nice for the price. They do, however, perform very well if used over an eye shadow primer, or a base. This is why I have three swatches of each color… the top swatch is of each shade over the Maybelline Color Tattoo cream shadow in “Bad to the Bronze”, the second swatch down is over Too Faced Shadow Insurance, and the third, bottom swatch, is just the shadow by itself.
Thanks for reading!
