Review | Essence 3D Eyeshadow

Quite a while back now (like, over a year ago) I picked up one of Essence's 3D Eyeshadows in the shade 08 'Irresistible Vanilla Latte', a duo which consists of a shimmery white/cream and a warm metallic gold. I've worn it intermittently since and I have no idea why I haven't already reviewed it...
Essence 3D Eyeshadow Irresistible Vanilla Latte Review
"3D duo eyeshadow, irresistible effects and long-lasting texture. Apply wet for an even more intense effect." Applied dry, the pigmentation is unfortunately quite naff; using a damp brush, however, you get something pretty special. The creamy white shade has a beautiful shimmer to it which makes me look wide-awake, whilst the gold just warms the eye are up really nicely. It's hard to describe but I really like the way these shadows look on my eyes for a simple, everyday look. I've found this duo lasts really well, easily managing around nine hours without a primer.

Essence 3D Eyeshadows are available in the UK from Wilko's at the bargain price of £2.80; I really think this is a great buy as they're really pretty shadows. There are a few shades available so you could even mix-and-match shades between them if you picked up more than one! Have you tried Essence's 3D Eyeshadows? What's your favourite Essence product?

  1. That's gorgeous! Really pretty and subtle, but not too subtle (I tend to find a lot of shadows in those shades just don't really show up a lot of the time). Lovely packaging too :)

  4. I wish Essence was easier to find in the US. Only a few stores carry the line near me and they usually have a limited selection. I so want to try these out!

  6. I totally just picked this up from Ulta the other day. I do wish that we had more of the line available in the US, but this post has me more excited to start wearing this gorgeous shadow.
