Essence Velvet Eyeshadows

Last month, I got the amazing opportunity to have supper with Essence Cosmetics where they presented us their latest arrivals. As you may have seen in my June Vlog, they very generously gave us their entire new collection! I wrote a post about their new Gel and Porcelain nail polishes that you can read. This beauty review though is all about Essence’s Velvet Eyeshadows.

As their name suggests, these Velvet gems come in a soft and supple texture. They all have a beautiful chequered embossment that adds a very luxurious touch to the shades. The packaging is small and compact, perfect to travel, as well as transparent which makes it very easy to see the colour. I was really impressed with their quality! They apply so well on the lids and blends effortlessly. They are also fairly pigmented – the pictures don’t do them justice.

These shadows are all so stunning and perfect for all you neutral lovers, just like me. And of course, there are a few colourful shades to add a pop of fun to your makeup looks! I cannot recommend them enough, especially since they are so incredibly affordable and of great quality.

Have you tried Essence eyeshadows? What do you guys think of them?

    This is the second time this brand came up for me today. I don’t have anything from them. I’ve been struggling with liquid eyeliner and I want to try the Essence one. I think I need to take a look overall at what they’ve got. Any recommendations for a first time Essence shopper?

      Oh my, I like so many products of them! I really recommend their lipsticks, eyeshadows and highlighters 🙂 They are my favourites!

    Omg. I love all the shades. I have heard alot about it. I wish Essence was available in India. 😭
