My Experience with Essence My Must Haves Eyeshadow 13 Snowflake:
Let’s begin with packaging of the product – this eyeshadow comes in a tiny, round, black-colored plastic pan with a clear lid. The lid bears the brand’s tagline embossed on it like all other Essence eyeshadows but the packaging is a bit different from other regular Essence eyeshadow pans. These are comparatively smaller and can carried be along or can be customized in an eyeshadow palette also. The lid of the pan closes nicely but it does not shut too tightly and may come off in your makeup pouch. The simple round pans are easily stackable against each other.
The back of the pan has a small circular sticker bearing the shade name and number along with other necessary information about the product. It does not come with any applicator but this is not really a con for me, as I do not prefer using those small sponge applicators, which comes with such mono eyeshadows. Overall, the packaging of the product is fine but the eye shadows must be packed securely while carrying around, as the plastic of the pans seems quite fragile and may break.
“Snowflake” is a beautiful shimmery white-colored eyeshadow. It is loaded with lots of silver microshimmer. The shimmer in the eyeshadow is finely milled and do not look chunky at all. The fine microshimmer does not look chunky or gaudy. This shade is apt for highlighting purposes. Also, it can be used on the center of the eyelid or a lid color with a cut-crease makeup look in combination with other shades.
The shimmery glam shade is great for parties. It is a pretty color and you can use your imagination to create a variety of party looks using this pretty silvery off-white kind of shade. The silver shimmer in the eyeshadow makes it look more metallic. Also, it has a gorgeous pearly sheen in it. Such shades are not suitable for everyday wear, but the pretty shimmery finish makes it a great choice for the wedding season. The formula is decently pigmented and it requires two-three swipes to achieve the perfect color and finish.
The texture of this eyeshadow is soft and smooth. It glides effortlessly on the eyelids and it is really easy to blend the eye shadow. There is a creamy feel in its texture. It does not feel chalky or powdery upon layering. Since, this is loaded with shimmers, there is a little fallout issue, but nothing major. It is easy to build up the color. It does not get patchy.
The eyeshadow does not smudge at all. The shimmers in the eyeshadow do not budge at all, which happens with most of the shimmery eyeshadows. The shimmers do not transfer, they stay in place. The longevity of the eyeshadow is somewhere around 5-6 hours on my eyelids with an eye primer underneath, which is pretty decent for a drugstore brand. Overall, these eye shadows have a decent quality according to their price tags.
