Essence & Joy

Today I got a package from Biba.

Color drops in action:

I made quick swatches of the Essence Eclipse Collection duo eyeshadow in Werewolf or Vampire. As you can see on the color drop, there are two shades in the package. One is lighter gray and one darker, almost black. What you don't see is the glitter which flashes purple and green. It's gorgeous, but it's impossible to catch it on a photo.
I used Urban Decay Primer Potion as a base for these swatches, but when I applied the shadows dry, there wasn't much color payoff. But there's a whole other story when they're applied wet. Wow! Look at that shine:

Of course I also had to try out the polish. The quality is actually pretty good and the brush is small, but very easy to work with. The only problem with these polishes is the bottle size and (in my experience) they get goopy quite fast.

Vollare, Joy 77, 2 coats

Tomorrow I'm gonna show you a look I made with Werewolf or Vampire. Hopefully. =)

Thanks for looking!
