Essence Metal Glam Eyeshadow: Oh Em Gee. LOVE It.

By Lynnie | February 17 2010 | 23 Comments

I am all over metallics like a particularly persistant rash at the moment, and I can’t pass an Essence stand without eyeing – and usually purchasing – a few bits and bobs.

That’s good news because Essence is so pocket-friendly, but bad news because I encounter a minimum of three different Essence stands a week just doing the regular messages shopping.

Well, in a happy collision of bling and budget-tastic, Essence have released a shiny new line of liquid metal eyeshadows that are seriously ab fab. I’ve been trialling shade 02, So Hot, which is a molten silver that I’ve been pairing with a gunmetal Lancôme shadow for an on-trend shot of brightness at the inner corners of the eyes. Team with a peach or apricot blusher like NARS Orgasm for an “effortless” fresh-faced look that’s very SS10.

Metal Glam dries quickly to a super high-shine finish that doesn’t smudge or shed its metallic load all over your cheekbones. Use just a little for a hint of shimmer, or layer it on for a more intense opaque true silver gleam. Either way, it’s well worth the typically weeny €2.49 price tag!

    Yum yum yum. Silver and bronze ones will be mine… Tho with a price like that maybe all of them could be mine :D Oh, and I checked, Essence don’t test on animals, neither they pay 3rd parties to do so, and that’s another bonus for me :)

    The Essence of prettiness!
    Really liking this brand at the mo too. I bought one of their duo powder eye shadows recently, a delish baby pink and chcocolate brown, just perfect for daytime. If this lasts for a whole night out, I’ll definately want one. :D

    Have to stop buying this stuff. Am trying to limit my makeup bag to stuff I will really use but everytime I go into my local chemist I come out with half the stand cos the stuff is soooo cute and sooooo reasonable. Have found it excellent for when 2yr olds raid my make up bag though so think I will always have one of their palettes on the go. Think I might pick up the bronze one to add a bit of glitz to my BB palette for night time.

    Ooh I like the look of these, and so cheap I can afford all the colours and still have change! I can feel a mini splurge coming on…

    I absolutely love Essence products. They are so cheap and so handy! I have really brittle nails when they get long and used their strengthening clear polish and so far so good!
