I recently discovered these Essence 3D Eye Shadows, and found out that these are yet not reviewed on IMBB. I quickly picked up two shades: 06 Irresistible Brazilian Sun and 03 Irresistible Choco Cupcake. Let’s get into the review of the first variant.

My Experience with Essence 06 Irresistible Brazilian Sun 3D Eyeshadow:
Essence is a very affordable brand and they have such a great range of makeup. This eyeshadow comes in a small, round, clear plastic container with a clear cap. The clear packaging makes it easy to identify the shade and it is very lightweight too. I am not very impressed with the packaging because it is not sturdy. Also, it doesn’t have any mirror or applicator. But, if I consider the price, it is quite a nice, cute and travel-friendly packaging. It has a duo pattern that makes the eyeshadows look so attractive.
This 3D eyeshadow range has 9 beautiful shades and all the shades are shimmery. This duo eye shadow contains one light highlighting shade and one darker shade. This ‘Irresistible Brazilian Sun’ is actually the color of Brazil’s flag. It’s a green and yellow combination and I absolutely love it. The green one is a very poppy and shiny deep green shade with golden shimmers. And, another one is a bright yellow shade with highly visible golden glitters in it. Both the shades look so gorgeous.
On my fingers, the shadows look so pigmented and only one swipe gives deep color payoff. But, the shades do not appear as pigmented on my lids, especially the yellow shade as it needs more swipes in dry application. But, if I use it in a wet condition, it looks more pigmented and bright. The green one is quite nicely pigmented and it also looks better when applied wet. Overall, both the shades are beautiful and fun to try in this hot summer.
Quality & Texture:
These shadows come with a very smooth and silky texture which blends easily on the eyes without any effort. The texture is soft, fine and powdery, and it never feels chalky. I really like the way these shadows blend on eyelids. The shimmer or glitter in these shades never look OTT. They look beautiful on the eyes and impart a metallic finish. But the shadows fall a little during application, especially the glittery yellow one.
This happens only when I apply it dry. And the glitters are quite hard to remove with a brush. So I prefer to do my eye makeup first. The shadows don’t transfer and never settle into the fine lines. But these are not waterproof and that’s why after few hours the colors look faded from the corners of my eyes.
This eye shadows have an average staying power without a primer. They stay perfectly for around 4-5 hours and after that they look faded on my oily lids. They start to crease also if I do not apply any primer. But, with a primer, they stay for around 6 hours. I have super oily and sweaty skin, so my makeup looks a little messy at the corners. But the shimmers never mess around my eyes. Also, it is easy to remove the colors with a wipe. But, the glitters require more efforts to get properly removed.
Overall, I exactly wanted shades like these. They look so bright and perfect, and give a 3D look to my eyes. I think we should go for such kind of fun and gorgeous shades for our party makeup. I wish the yellow shade were a little more pigmented, though. Otherwise, according to its price, I am super happy with this 3D eye shadow range.
