This is called “How to Make Nude Eyes” makeup box by Essence and I found this at my local drugstore (Shoppers Drug Mart to be precise) and it cost $2.00. In my opinion this is a new collection of Essence’s new eyeshadow after their All About Nude eyeshadow palette in 01. I personally like this new packaging more to be honest.
Net wt: 0.14 oz. This box packaging is light and sturdy. I really like the design on the top and the nice color selections. You got the light, mid tones and dark color shadows.
This one has a mirror on top and comes with six eyeshadows. I really like the packaging which sort of reminds me of the Too Faced Neutral Palette. It comes with a sponge applicator on one end and a blunt cut mini brush on the other end. I haven’t tried the applicator yet, so I couldn’t comment much for now.
Up Close picture of this makeup box packaging. The nude shadow collection includes shades of beige, gold, apricot, and browns.
It’s a very cool toned neutral nude color selection with taupy type shades and by just looking at this palette, it looks like a pretty color selection. I’m not expecting it to be an intense smoky palette but again the theme is how to make nude eyes.
In addition to that, there are instructional cards on the top. Guide for everyday and night out look. When you take these out you see and get an idea how to do your eye makeup.
They feel pretty creamy when I put my brush into them. They don’t kicked up a lot of powdery shadow and in my opinion so much easy to manage. They feel great but I would wish that they have more color intensity to it to match the nice quality they have.
The color swatches are pretty decent. I was expecting the taupy shade to be more intense but it just lack the “uhm”. It’s doesn’t give me the “wow” effect but don’t get me wrong, I do love the packing and color selection but the pigmentation in this formula is a little lacking. They’re all shimmery shadows and it would be great to see a few matte color mixed in this palette if you ask me.
I’ve tried several different shadows by rotating them but it tends to give me a similar look each time. The color finish doesn’t give me a unique popped of the color intensity. That’s what happened when you get all shimmery texture and not the best pigmentation. It leaves me quite to be desired.
But I think if you’re a makeup beginner or young person starting up with makeup. There is a positive point to it. These shadows don’t give you a lot of fall out for those of you whose starting out with things. So for $2.00 a palette, I’d say go for it.
Have you tried this makeup box by essence? Where did you see this eyeshadow palette? Would you pick this one up? I love to read your comment.
Well, I hope you’ve enjoyed this and I’ll see you next time.
Thank you for stopping by.
