Hope you are having a great day! Today I am reviewing a 6 pan eye shadow palette from Essence. This is called the “All About Paradise” eye shadow palette (04).
Product Details from the Essence Website:
All about… beautiful eyes: a gorgeous look is guaranteed by the eye shadow palettes with six trendy colors each. The smooth texture of the eye shadows contains shimmering, matt and metallic effects – for endless looks.
Price: CAD $4.99
My experience with Essence Eye Shadow Palette –All About Paradise:
The eye shadow comes in a six pan plastic case with a transparent lid which closes securely. It is travel friendly and the transparent lid makes it easier to spot the palette you are looking for in your collection, without having to open the lid. There is no mirror or brush provided along with this palette. I am okay with that as in most cases the brush/sponge tip applicator provided is not very useful.
Color and Finish:
This is the brightest and most colorful palette in this line of Essence eye shadows. There are two neutral shades and four bold bright shades with a shimmer or satin finish.
Shade 1 – Creamy champagne with a satin finish
Shade 2 – Peach with a shimmer finish
Shade 3 – Medium raspberry pink with a shimmer finish
Shade 4 – Bright yellow with a satin finish
Shade 5 – Sea Green with a satin finish
Shade 6 – Ocean blue with a satin finish
All shades are very pretty. The yellow especially, is a very unique shade. As all colors are shimmery or satin with a sheen, people who do not like shimmery shadows should probably skip it.
The texture of all the shadows is quite smooth and creamy. They are easy to apply and easy to blend. As the eye shadows are very soft, you will find that there is some fall out. Do remember to tap the excess off your brush before you apply it on your lids.
Pigmentation and Longevity:
The pigmentation of all colors, even the light ones, is really good even without a primer. They also last for a long time. Without a primer, they last for around 6 hours on my oily lids before starting to fade and with a primer, they stay on for over 8 hours before fading slightly.
Pros of Essence All About Paradise Eye Shadow Palette:
A gorgeous palette with fun colorful shades
Can be used to create bright colorful looks or just to add a pop of color to an everyday look
All shades have a soft silky texture
Travel friendly packaging
All shades are highly pigmented
Lasts for a decent amount of time on the lids
Cons of Essence All About Paradise Eye Shadow Palette:
No mirror/brush can be a con for some.
This is a lovely eye shadow palette to try if you have been meaning to venture onto the bright side. You can create many fun looks for the spring/summer. Moreover, it is quite inexpensive. Do try it if you get a chance!
