If you guys remember my post on My Biggest Haul Ever you know I got loads of stuff from Swiss last year especially products from Catrice and Essence! Both these brands are drugstore brands and have reasonably priced products with great quality!
Today I will be reviewing an eyeshadow from Essence Happy Hour Metallic Effect Eyeshadow in 30. It’s a gorgeous turquoise blue color! This color is my all time favorite!! A confession to make, about 7 to 8 years back I actually had a wardrobe full of turquoise color clothes right from Tees to Kurtas to Salwar Kameez Sets to Saree!! Whenever I see anything in this color my heart melts out and automatically I end up buying it 😀
Coming back to this eyeshadow, its really a pretty color which will suit all skin tones especially fair to medium ones. The pigmentation is great and stays on my eyelids without primer for upto 4 to 5 hours easily so with a primer it will definitely stay longer! The texture is not ultra smooth like mac and inglot ones but a little bit powdery but not chalky! When applied wet it stays on for longer duration and pigmentation is also high! Also it blends well so no issues over there.
These comes in super slim packaging which is quite nice! The upper lid is transparent and hence you can easily identify the eyeshadow from outside. The pan contains 2.5gms of product and expiry date is 24 months which is quite reasonable!
As you can see the finish is very metallic and not at all matte or shimmery! Once blended nicely it gives pearly effect which does not look OTT at all.
I love to pair this with a golden eyeshadow! It looks lovely. Here is an EOTD, pls excuse the blurry pic..I tried so hard but the pic was not coming good at all 🙁 Bad pic day!
Price:- 4 to 5 swiss francs approx
Rating:- 4 out 5
Final thoughts:– I would definitely recommend these as they are great option for beginners like me! Extremely reasonably priced and of good quality! So if you are on a Europe trip dont forget to hoard these!
The only issue I see is the availability as these are staple in EU only 🙁
