My Experience with Essence Chocolate Jewellery Metal Glam Eyeshadow:
Packaging: The packaging looks very cute and girly. The shadow comes in a round pot with a clear plastic flip lid. The product name has been printed in silver fonts over the cap. You’ll find the shade name at the bottom of the container too. Overall, the packaging looks decent, easy to use & carry and has a sturdy body.
Product: First of all, let me describe you the product. The shadow is named as Metal Glam because it’s a pressed form metallic eyeshadow with an overspray of multi colored shimmers in it that makes it look very attractive. On the surface, it looks like a nice, glitter eyeshadow. But, when you swatch it, you’ll notice that there is only a layer of glitter underneath which there is a simple, smooth shadow with less perceptible multi colored shimmers in it. The company has done a nice trick by creating a nice, attractive image of the eyeshadow, whereas, at the same time, it has kept it understated.
Shade: Chocolate Jewellery is a metallic, chocolate brown color with non gritty, but concentrated golden shimmers in it. It’s not a very deep choco brown color. The shade will complement Indian skin tones very beautifully and the color can be worn every day. This shadow will look very nice as party color when applied wet.
Texture and Pigmentation: The shadow has a very smooth texture to it. It’s not very creamy and smooth nor powdery. The finish is very pearlescent and satiny. The shimmers present in it aren’t gritty at all. The only thing that I didn’t like about this shadow is that it requires a little effort when you try to blend the eyeshadow using your regular eye shadow brushes or sponge applicator. You need to just take the shadow in the brush and apply it by dabbing on the eyelids. This happens because the shadow is hardly pressed or can say little less powdery than the other shadows.
The pigmentation of the shadow is very good, you’ll get decent amount of color with just one swipe. But, as I said, blending and spreading the shadow is quite difficult. So, I need to sweep my brush 2-3 times on my eyes to get even color.
Staying Power: The shadow gives me decent wear time of 4 + hours without a primer base. This eyeshadow stains the eyelids and that’s why it lasts quite long. Using it wet will surely increase the intensity of the color and the staying power too.
Pros of Essence Chocolate Jewellery Metal Glam Eyeshadow:
• Attractive packaging. And, the glittery over-spray is very attractive.
• The shade is a very nice, warm metallic brown color.
• Will complement every skin tone.
• Smooth and satiny texture.
• The glitters are too tiny and not gritty.
• Excellent pigmentation gives a nice color pay-off.
• Decent staying power for 3-4 hours, without much fading.
Cons of Essence Chocolate Jewellery Metal Glam Eyeshadow:
• Application is not very smooth and requires effort in blending.
• If you don’t like glittery shadows or prefer using more matte kind of shadows, give this range a pass.
Would I Repurchase/Recommend Essence Chocolate Jewellery Metal Glam Eyeshadow?
I’ll definitely recommend this eyeshadow to everyone who loves wearing such warm brown shades on their eyes. You can use it on everyday basis. But, get it only if you won’t mind applying it with your fingers for better blending. I’ll surely buy other shades from this range.
