Essence Single Eyeshadow in 12 Reflections

Hi Beautiful People,

I hope you had an amazing day. Today’s article is going to be about my lovely cheap eyeshadow from Essence. They have really pretty eyeshadows for 2-3$ each. I love the price I have to admit. The color that I am reviewing is 12-Reflections, a gorgeous shimmery golden eyeshadow perfect for the holidays. I remember IMBB posted a question about “what your favorite golden eyeshadow is?”

Now, the color is really pretty, but that doesn’t mean the product is perfect. It feels very dry when I swatched it. I also noticed that it has some fallouts. For 2 dollars though, I am not complaining. I bought mine from Rossman, a store here in Germany, but you can also find it at Walmart if you live in in the States.

It is actually more vibrant than seen in this picture. The gold is really pretty.

It claims to be long lasting which is right. If you have a good eyeshadow base, it will last a long time. It says “silky” on the packaging, but I can’t agree with that. It feels dry on my finger. The packing is adorable and sort of sturdy. I have dropped the eyeshadow a few times, but nothing happened.

Last Word on Essence Single Eyeshadow in 12 Reflections:

For the price and for the vibrant long-lasting eyeshadow, definitely something to recommend. Unfortunately, I’m not sure if you are able to get this in India, I hope you are. If you are taking a trip to Europe, make sure to pick up at least one of these Essence eyeshadows.
