So another review for today!
Have you also had that fase in your life where you felt like you had world's biggest obsession with everything glitter/sparkly?
Or do you just feel like you live in that fase?
Now, I'm pretty proud to say i'm in that fase now :-).
So today i'll be reviewing two sprakly budget essence eyeshadows in the shades 08 n'ice frosting and 03 starlight.
the names (sorry for the crappy picture, but I forgot to make one with my other camera, so I quickly took a one with my IPad!)
08 n'ice frosting
Promise of essence:
- eyeshadow with metallic texture for an intensive luminous effect. long-lasting.
Promis of essence:
- super soft & long-lasting eyeshadow
Yes, again a overspray. You can clearly see where I used it! I really don't like this. You think you have amazing sparkly eyeshadow, but it turns out to be a overspray. I get that essence is a budget brand, so they also have to keep the production budget, but still... Without the overspray swatching it, it looks a lot like 08 n'ice frosting. Just a sparkly highlighter. Without the spray, this, my dear ladies (and gentleman?), is a metallic eyeshadow (sound of shocked audience). But you can still use it if you are looking for a grey-ish highlighter.
Long-lasting using eyeshadow base, and super soft. Do not dare to drop this!

Pigmentation: 08: 7. Not outstanding, sparkly with a white-ish colour. And that overspray!
03: 6.8. If you are really good at recognizing colour, you wil see grey in this. Otherways, a little bit dull highlighter. But a good budget highlighter!
Packaging: 08: 8.2. Good job on the packaging essence! It kind of chique a little bit of a rose-gold/silver colour, and a plastic cap, so you can see the colour clearly. Simple and basic, just like we know essence. May look a little bit cheap, but I thinks it works!
03: 7. Basic and simple, but cheap-looking.
The average marks:
08 n'ice frosting: 7.6. I think the mark is a bit to high. Blame the spray!
03 starlight: 6.9. A good average, not to high, not to low.
So i hoped you enjoyed!
