My Experience with Essence Mono Eyeshadow in Sandy Says Hello:
Packaging: The eyeshadow comes in a small round compact with a transparent top which makes it easy to see the color in the pan without having to open it. The eye shadow is embossed with a pretty pattern. The eyeshadow compact feels quite sturdy and will travel without any issues.
Color and Pigmentation: ‘Sandy Says Hello’ is a gorgeous shimmery champagne shade. You can choose to use it all over your lid, along with a darker crease shade, or you can use it as a highlighter.The color payoff of this eye shadow is really good. You can also layer this shade on the eyelids without it getting patchy.
Texture and Finish: The texture of this eye shadow is very soft. It is quite easy to blend. As with any eye shadow, make sure you tap the excess off your brush before you apply the color on the eyelid. This eye shadow is a metallic effect shadow. It has a shimmer finish but there is no glitter.
Longevity: The longevity is really good. Even without a primer, this lasted on my oily lids for over 7 hours before starting to fade.
