Bargain beauty: Essence eyeshadow

I figured you might be a little tired of the Essence nail polish posts so I thought I'd give you a look at the Essence eyeshadow pans I picked up for a song at Priceline instead...

02 Dance All Night (sparkling effect)

35 Party All Night (metallic effect)

14 Irresistable (metallic effect)

According to the packaging these eyeshadows are "super-soft & long-lasting".  I swatched them over eye base on the back of my hand and they do have a silky soft texture and are well pigmented.  As I haven't worn them yet I can't comment on the durability of wear. 

Clockwise from left:

Essence cosmetics are manufactured in Germany and their eyeshadows have a solid following in the European beauty blogging community.  At $3.95AUD each I think these eyeshadow pans are a bargain and there's a good range of colours available, including pastels, metallics and neutrals.  I look forward to experimenting with these! 

The Essence line of cosmetics is available at selected Priceline stores.

That's all for now.

  1. They look so pretty, I'd love to see an EOTD using them! :)

  2. Hopefully I'll have some time to try them out this weekend!

  3. I love Essence! It's cheap & good quality (for the price you pay). Oh & I love the packaging of the eyeshadows you got. :)

  4. I picked up a couple of these the other day. A white one and a moss green. I'm not sure what the price fluctuation is from there and the states but they are only .99 cents here. I'm interested in how they wear. Have you had luck with them?

  5. @Jennifer Williams - 99 cents is awesome! Our dollars are roughly 1:1 at the moment so you're getting a great deal. I find these eyeshadows do wear quite well on their own and they've got lovely pigmentation. Of course you can really anchor them to your lids with a bit of primer. :)
