Hi my beauties
hope you are enjoying new year. Wish you a blessed year ahead. Today I will be reviewing Essence 2 in 1 eyeshadow and liner in 02 peach perfect. These eyeshadow pencils comes in other different shades as well which you can check online.
I was too excited to use this eyeshadow because you know it is all about shimmer and glow now a days. Lets jump into the excitement without further ado.
- creamy eyeshadow and liner
- easy blendable and long lasting
- removeable with waterproof eye makeup remover
The eyeshadow comes in a form of chubby pencil with transparent click lid and twist up bottom nothing fancy. Actually I am a fan of golden or yellow gold metallic shimmery shades. I love gold on eyes because I feel this shade enhance the simple eye look and make it fancy. I did not find gold eyeshadow in these pencils so peach shade attracted me in that case. It’s a light peach shade with a satin finish.
Formula is so creamy that it glides onto your lids smoothly. Important note for you “it can only be used as an eyeshadow not as a liner” because the tip is quite thick which is impossible to use it as a liner.
This eyeshadow is pigmented so that one application is enough to get the desired result. Another note to remember that if you blend this eyeshadow it will lost its pigmentation thats why complete your eye look with only applying this eyeshadow and leave it without blending. Shimmery shades are not meant for blending right but my point is that blending it with other shade to subtle the whole eye look is a tricky part. Hope you will get my point wink wink.
Now you must be curious about knowing that is it waterproof or not? The answer to your question is that yes it is waterproof and works best in summers when our makeup melts in scorching heat. It stayed on lids for about 1 hour without eyeshadow primer and with primer it stayed for 3 hours approximately and then started getting fade. You can easily remove it with any micellar water.
So the two claims by brand does not meet as it is not that long lasting and it cannot be used as a liner but still it is a good one.
It retails for 475 PKR.
- formula is smooth
- glides onto lids
- pigmentation is good
- lost pigmentation while blending
- does not last long
So if you like shimmery shadows (who will not lol) you will definitely like this shadow and you will have a good range of selecting your kind of shade. Do give your feedback about this post. Would love to hear from you.
