budget find - essence stay all day long eyeshadow

Lately, I have been liking the long lasting  cream eyeshadows a lot. They are just so easy and quick to use, and really useful when you are rushing in the morning.

 Only recently I came across the Essence stay all day long lasting eyeshadow in Pennys ( Primark), although the eye shadows are  available since September 2011.

They come in six different shades:

  • 01 Coppy right – metallic light copper
  • 02 Glammy goes to... – metallic light gold
  • 03 Steel the show - metallic shimmery taupe
  • 04Stars & stories - metallic silver
  • 05 Camp rock –  metallic silver green
  • 06 Rock chick - metallic black with silver shimmer
 I bought the 01 Coppy right  and the 02 Glammy goes to...  so far I have to say I am very pleased with the eye shadows and I use them quite often in my make up routine. I use them alone all over my lid or sometimes even as my base, since they are so light in color. They also mix easily with other eye shadows.  I find them to be the perfect dupe for my Bobbi Brown long wear cream eyeshadows.

 01 Coppy right – metallic light copper

 02 Glammy goes to... – metallic light gold

 What I like about these cream eyeshadows
  • Creamy  Texture
  • Don’t smudge
  • Stay put all day/night long
  • Metallic  glittery effect
  • Easy to blend
  • Well  pigmented  
  • Buildable color
  • Dry very quickly
  • 5,5 g pan  for 2,95 €
Bottom Line
I think these are great eye shadows  and  are very user friendly. The quality of the product is very good, and very well comparable with high end eye shadows, less the price tag of course.So, I am very happy with my new budget find! I only wish that Essence would add more colors, such as lilac and rose.

Have you tried the Essence stay all day long lasting eye shadow yet? And if, what is your favorite shade? Can you recommend better cream eye shadows?

  15. As for me I also apprecciate eze shadows bcoz of its texture and soft touch. I guess shades seem to be the best way to achieve Smokie eyes effect.
    I tried many different brands and I definitely know that CHANEL muted shaed I can surely considery of the best ever.
    The quality shows itself durin' the whole non stop daily use. I mean when I don't have any opportunnity to remove it I don't have anyproblems-the colors don't change their vividness and no allergy!
    So, I would reccomend it indeed:)
