Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!
So okay, I need to explore other brands but I just can't keep myself to it until I bought everything from Essence, except for the lipliners, lipglosses and nail polishes. So yeah, that's how crazy I am with Essence. HAHA.
I never tried any cream shadows and I actually wanted to buy a brown/taupe color but instead bought this gray shadow for which, I don't mind because I don't really have a grey shadow in my collection yet.
Although it's a grey color, it seems to have a hint of brown in it in real life, almost like taupe but only when it is a light swatch which is nice for a wash over your lid, giving quite a natural finish, given the frosty-looking product.
There's a big difference between when swatched witth and without primer, but all the same both swatches are pretty pigmented. There's no light swatch because, the camera won't pick up the colors as opposed to the heavy swatch.
This is a nice cream shadow that may not be smooth enough but nevertheless it is easy to apply on your eyelid, it might rival the Maybelline's 24hr Color Tattoo, but I don't really have any to compare with due to its non-availability in Brunei.
A great product which stays all days and doesn't crease but only after 12 hour of use :D Something that might take a long time for me to repurchase as I've been using this a lot but hardly made even a small dent out of this, but I would love to try out more colors, I only wish their Backstage Eye Souffle was available =/ too late.
