Today I'm reviewing 2 products from the new Essence collection, Hello Autumn!!
I'm reviewing one of the eyeshadow palettes and the multi color powder.
I have the palette in 01 Walk In The Park.
Shade 2 is a sheer yellow gold color.
Shade 3 is a shimmery pink beige.
Shade 4 is a very light brown.
Shade 5 is a classic shimmery brown with some very fine gold glitter.
Shade 6 is a cool toned dark brown.
All of the shades are quite sheer and don't swatch very well. I was a bit disappointed, considering how much better other recent Essence products have been. The eyeshadows apply a bit better with a brush but you still have to build them up quite a bit. However the blend beautifully and all of them are really soft.
I started off with shade 3 on the inner two thirds of my eye and then blended shade 6 into the outer corner. I then added shade 5 over and above shade 6 to blend it out and add some warmth to the look. It was still looking a bit to dull for my taste so I pressed shade 2 all over the lid with my finger as a gold overlay and that really brightened things up. I then applied shade 1 as my inner corner and brow bone highlight. I curled my lashes and added some mascara and bronzed up my skin with the Multi Color Powder in 01 Autumn & the City.
Overall I really like the warm tones in this collection and it's a very practical one, as you can use these kind of shades all year round. I was slightly disappointed when it came to the pigmentation of the products, because we all know that Essence can and has done waaaaaaay better than this (let's not forget the amazingness of the All About Chocolates palette and the Smokey Eye Sets).
