Hey everyone, today I have a review on a brand that I never purchased from before, but when I was at Ulta, I thought why not? So I picked up a few things from Essence Cosmetics. I ended up picking up a few lipsticks, a blush and this eyeshadow duo. This is the Essence Duo in Irresistible Caramel Cream. I always pass the Essence section at Ulta and I always thought everything looked so cute. So I just had to try a few things.
Irresistible Caramel Cream is a eyeshadow duo that comes with a beautiful shimmery egg shell color and also a shimmery medium brown. The eyeshadow its self does have a 3D effect to it. The cream color shade does have a little dome to it so it does raise higher then the brown shade. I thought the formula of the shadows were a little dry. They did swatch nicely, but they weren't buttery. They were more stiff, but like I said they did swatch nice. Both colors were not as pigmented as I hoped for and I think the cream color would be perfect to use to highlight the brow bone, and then the brown shade would be great for all over the lid.
One thing that I loved about this product was that it was super affordable. For the 3D duo is was only $3.49 which is such a great price. Overall I thought this was an ok duo. For being so cheap I think it was a really good deal, but I wish the colors were a little more pigmented.
