Makeup junkies, aloha!
How is everybody doing? I hope you are all liking my newly polished up website and are getting comfortable using it. It may still have some glitches so please let me know the bits and bobs that have bothered you so far, and I will gladly try and get them fixed! And for those of you who have given me feedback, thank you so much for your constant love and support. I am so happy that you are happy with the way things are now. I was worrying my socks off that I would get so much hate on the new layout! What a relief!
Anyways. I feel like I haven’t written in quite a while. The last couple of posts that were published were written in advance- holidaying ya know. Nonetheless, it’s great to be back and typing again! Part of the reason why I am that tad bit extra chatty atm. (I know what you’re thinking. When are you NOT chatty. I know, I know. *sigh*)
FINALLY getting to the point now, today I have for you girlies a review on the eye shadow sticks by Essence Cosmetics. Now you all know that I love Essence. It is a super affordable brand that delivers great quality. For the most part, at least. I have been testing out their shadow sticks lately and have been loving them! If you wish to learn the deets, hop down below!
- Very pigmented
- Very smooth and creamy
- Blends like a dream
- Gives enough time to play around before it sets
- Sets waterproof
- Lasts well
- Twist up pencil
- Doesn’t have chunky glitters
- Gorgeous shades. I have only tried out two; swatched below

- Have to set it with powder otherwise starts creasing if you have oily lids
Overall, I think it’s a great bargain. Great pigment and lasting power for this price, definitely a WIN-WIN.
Have you tried these out? Let me know what you think!
