This is how it looks.
Products I used for this look:
* Essence eyeshadow in Blue Mission
* Essence Black Mania eye pencil
* Essence Stays On and On and On mascara
* Rimmel eyeshadow in Jet Black
Price: 1.89 € for 0.08 oz/2.5 g
Where to buy? Wherever Essence cosmetics are available.
I tried to write pros and cons for this product, but I'm afraid that's almost impossible to do. I couldn't think of one good reason for purchasing this color. I don't expect much from my eyeshadows. Urban Decay Primer Potion takes care of the staying power of all my shadows (and it does a hell of a job too). The only thing I want from a shadow is - pigmentation. And that's the main reason to buy it in the first place, right? The color!
Well, this one failed me. Miserably.
I have four Essence eyeshadows in front of me while I'm typing this. Two from the old line and two from the new line. Three are better pigmented than one. And those three are all shimmers and the not-so-pigmented-one is Blue Mission, which is matte. Essence can't make a good matte shadow?
Oh, and one more thing. Shadows from the old line were made in Germany, while shadows from the new line were made in Poland. I don't know if that makes any difference quality wise, but it's good to know. Just in case.
To sum this up: I don't recommend you to buy this color. If you're like me and have to learn from your own mistakes, at least try the tester in the store before purchase. I know it's cheap, but it's still too darn pricey for being a crappy product.
Why are Essence products a total win OR an epic failure? *scratches head*
Thanks for looking!
