Essence 3D Eye Shadow Packs a Lot of Shimmer

Recently I was the lucky winner of a generous giveaway on Batting a Lash, which is a great beauty blog that just celebrated 5 years of blogging! Congrats on the milestone Jill!

Part of my awesome prize were these two Essence 3D Eyeshadow duos, which I have never tried before. The amount of shimmer in these is crazy, I can totally see why they get their 3D name. These look like something from outer space with the sparkly formula and intense shimmer.

The pink duo is 03 Irresistible First Love and the brown duo is 09 Irresistible Chocolates. Both duos are fairly light in colour but when you apply the shadow you can build it up and layer it for a more opaque look. I can see both of these being used individually or with other shadows to create a complex shimmery look. I will definitely be trying out some cool combinations with these.

At first I thought the shadows might be a little on the sheer side but I was pleasantly surprised to see how opaque the colour is. It’s hard tot ell in photos because of the shimmer but all of my swatches are very pigmented. Overall these eyeshadow duos were a really exciting thing to find in my prize pack, since I’ve seen them on shelves a million times but never tried them out for myself. Thanks again Jill!

Have you guys tried the Essence 3D Eyeshadow duos?
