Hello Beautiful Ladies,
Like all the other makeup brands, Coloressence too has some shades of single eye shadows. These eye shadows come in 2 different categories, one in the vibgyor matte colors and the others are in a pearl finish. In total, there are around 8-10 shades. I have 4-5 shades from both the range. The shade that I will be reviewing today is from their vibgyor matt eye shades and is shade number EM-1. The collection has 3-4 shades of blue and EM-1 is one of them.
Product quantity: 3.5 gm
These shadows come in a square shaped packaging with a round pan inside. The top of the lid is transparent making the color of the shadow visible without having to open it. This black colored packaging is further packed inside a black colored cardboard box which too has a circular cutout on the to which makes it easy locate in the stash.

My take on Coloressence Vibgyor Matt Eyeshadow EM-1:
As I already mentioned, EM-1 is one of their blue-colored shadows. The line has 3-4 blue colors and I have all of them. All the blues seem almost the same when applied on the lid but they actually look a bit different in the pan and this is the reason I bought them all. Out of all the blues I have, this particular blue is the one that I liked the least.
The color is not good in the pigmentation department. The color looks beautiful in the pan, and when swatched on the finger it seems to have a decent pigmentation, but when it is applied onto the lids, the color loses its pigmentation and appears to be a very bad shade of blue. Minimum 3-4 coats of color are required to get a decent looking color on the lids. The color and pigmentation can be improved with a white colored base beneath the shadow but without a white base it does not look good (not at least on me). The same goes with the staying power of the color, after struggling so much to get a good color pay off, all the hard work starts to fade in just 1 hour making it look even worst. The color is smooth and easy to blend, but blending makes its pigmentation go down even further.
Overall for me this particular color is a complete fail. I like the fact that it is affordable and I was really drawn towards the color that I saw in the pan, but unfortunately it is not as good as compared to some other colors from this line.

Cons of Coloressence Vibgyor Matt Eyeshadow EM-1:

• Minimum of 3-4 coats are required to make the color look decent on the lid.
Would I buy Coloressence Vibgyor Matt Eyeshadow EM-1?
No! I would definitely not buy this color again. As far as other colors are concerned, I already have 4 more shades and so I would not buy these shadows again.
Do I recommend Coloressence Vibgyor Matt Eyeshadow EM-1?
I do recommend these shadows to beginners as they are affordable, but I would not recommend this particular shade as the company does have better looking blues.
