The Essence All About Eyeshadows are the latest makeup favorite to grace my beauty desk! The All About collection is available in 5 difference variants and I managed to get the Nudes, Roses and Greys.
At first I wasn’t quite sure whether these eyeshadow palettes would provide enough pigment but low and behold they sure did deliver! Each palette consists of 8 trendy, perfectly aligned colors – from light shades to dark nuances.
I liked that it was an 8 pan palette which meant that you didn’t get too many unnecessary shades that you would not have used anyway and the 8 shades were a good combination of matte, metallic and shimmer shades.
These days I’ve been all about the glittery eyeshadow look and I must say that I gravitated more towards the shimmering shades as I knew I’d be able to achieve stunning looks with them. But how is the quality? If I had to rate it I’d probably give them a 6/10. Mainly because the eyeshadows are in a way “soft” so even if you bump the palette slightly or drop it, the chances are good of it breaking (see my black shade).
I liked that the fall-out wasn’t as bad as I expected considering how soft the eyeshadows are but remember the softer the shadow the better the pigment transfer.
Take a look below at the 3 looks I created using the 3 palettes. Obviously the All About Greys is my favorite! The black shade is the blackest one I’ve used yet and I really loved that so I’ll definitely be returning to the stores to pick up another one:
All About Greys (R76.95)
My first attempt at a cut crease! I just love all the shimmer shades that comes with this palette.
All About Nudes (R76.95)
A definite everyday-go-to palette. Perfect for that everyday look!
All About Roses (R76.95)
Not very pigmented compared to the rest but still great for a fresh spring look!
