To be honest I have never really rated Essence eyeshadows as I always found them to be very powdery with far too much fallout and poor colour payoff. But I had heard rave reviews about their new palettes so I went investigating. There are 4 palettes in total "All About Bronze", All About Greys" and the two I picked up "All About Roses" and "All About Nudes".
First up is the All About Nudes...I thought this would be my favourite as it has mainly warm matte browny/gold shades. As you can see from the swatches the colour payoff is really nice and the shadows are really buttery and easy to apply. On the lid the colour payoff isn't as good when applied with a brush so I used a flat brush to pack on the colour and then just blended out the edges. I didn't try them with a primer but they lasted well all day without creasing.
Next is All About Roses...
This turned out to be my favourite even though there are more shimmery shades in the palette. I was exceptionally surprised at how well these lasted throughout the day, as I always have to wear a primer as a base for my shadows because they usually crease but no such problems with these. However I am going to start to use my MAC Painterly Paint pot so I get a better colour payoff. You can use any cream shadow to help makes these colours stand out a little bit better - I love the Maybelline Colour Tattoo ones!!!!
I have been using both these palettes as my go to every day shadows for the past few weeks and love them both. I cannot believe how reasonable they are. You can pick them up in Penny's and a huge range of pharmacies nationwide for only €4.99. I can now say I am a convert to Essence eyeshadows. Only problem now is should I buy the other two palettes?????
Until next time....Be Happy!!!!
