My Experience with Essence My Must Haves Eyeshadow 01 Go Goldie:
Let’s begin with packaging of the product. The eyeshadow comes in tiny, round, black-colored plastic pan with a clear lid. The lid bears the brand’s tagline embossed on it, like any other Essence eyeshadow, but the packaging of this eyeshadow is a bit different from regular Essence eyeshadow pans. It is comparatively smaller and it can be carried along or can be customized in an eye shadow palette as well.

The lid of the pan closes nicely but it does not shut too tightly and may come off in your makeup pouch. The clear lid helps to spot the shade easily from makeup stash during rush hours. The back of the pan has a small circular sticker bearing the shade name and number along with other necessary information about the product. These tiny pans are easy to store and can be stacked on top easily. It does not come with any applicator but this is not really a con for me, as I do not prefer using sponge applicators that come along with such eyeshadows. Overall, the packaging of the product is fine. Also, the plastic of the pans seems quite fragile and is prone to breakage.

Most of the shades in this range are shimmery and great for the coming wedding season. Some of them can be very pretty highlighting shades. “Go Goldie” is a soft, warm, and pale champagne gold kind of a shade with loads of shimmer. These shimmers make it a great shade for highlighting the brow bone and the inner corner of the eyes. I even like using this shade as a cheek highlighter. It looks damn beautiful on the cheeks. It nicely highlights without looking over the top or too bling-y. These shimmers are subtle and do not look chunky at all.

The shade easily mixes with my skin tone and highlights it nicely. Though this shade is not suitable for everyday use as it may look gaudy if worn on a regular basis, but it is indeed a gorgeous color for evenig parties and night events. It looks so beautiful as a lid color as well but you need to build up slightly to make the color pop. Since the texture of this shade is slightly chalky, I build up the color by using a damp eye brush.

This helps to deposit color nicely and also reduces fallout. The shimmer is so finely milled into the formula that it does not look chunky or gaudy at all. Since the eye shadow contains a lot of shimmer, there is a bit of fallout issue with this eyeshadow. The formula is decently pigmented but still requires two to three swipes to deposit enough amount of color to the eyes.

The texture of this eye shadow is soft and smooth. It has a soft velvety feel and glides effortlessly on the eyelids. It is really easy to blend the eyeshadow. The color looks nice and does not get patchy. The shimmers in the eyeshadow do not budge or transfer, they stay in place (unlike other shimmery shadows that tend to transfer). This eyeshadow does not have the tendency to crease. The longevity of the eyeshadow is somewhere around 5-6 hours on my eyelids with an eye primer underneath.
Overall, I quite this eyeshadow.
