Haul & Swatches: ESSENCE NEW 3D Eyeshadow & Home Sweet Home Collection

02:21:00

If you have been to Priceline or Target lately, you might have realized that ESSENCE has recently released some exciting new products to their collection. This includes a range of base, eye, lips and nails products. 

ESSENCE 3D Eyeshadow (available in 9 colour combinations)
When I stumbled across the new display stand in my local Priceline, I was immediately drawn to the new 3D eyeshadows. So I picked up three of the combinations - one bold, one neutral and one smokey duo.
L-R: 02 Irresistible Purr-ple, 04 Irresistble Caramel Cream, 07 Irresistible Smokey Eye 
These new 3D eyeshadows claim to add totally new dimensions to the eyes to create a 3D effect guarantee look. Apart from that, they also have a 3D design. 


The 3D wavy design of the duos remind me so much of MAC's Extra Dimension collection, which is what caught my eyes at the start. I like the packaging as well, it is a good size and is very sturdy.

The eyeshadows are so pigmented, but the texture feels a little chalky. It says on the back that this could be applied wet for a more intense look. 

I really like the Irresistible Smokey Eye. It has a really rich black and a really nice gun metal color, which is perfect for creating the basic smokey look.


Another gem I found was ESSENCE's Home Sweet Home collection (limited edition), which I believe they are Target exclusives and are not available at many stores anymore. I had to ring a few Target stores to get my hands on the few products I wanted from the collection. 

Blush: 01 Knits for Chicks
Blush: 02 Wool-d You Cuddle Me?
The star of the collection has to be the blushes. Look at that knit pattern!!! They have the most unique and cute design ever. I could not resist, I had to get both of the blushes. 

Knits for Chicks is more of a plumy pinky shades when swirled together, whereas, Wool-d You Cuddle Me? is a light warm peachy color. 

 Eyeshadow: 03 My Home is My Castle
The eyeshadow I decided to pick up was My Home is My Castle, because the other shade available was a shimmery brown, which was nice, but I have a ton of neutrals at home already. My Home is My Castle is a pale matte pink, which I think would be quick pretty for a quick wash of color over the eyelids or even as a highlight.  

L-R: Blush 01 Knits for Chicks (Light-Dark-Mixed), Blush 02 Wool-d You Cuddle Me? (Light-Dark-Mixed), Eyeshadow 03 My Home is My Castle

Nail Polish: 03 Hot Fruit Punch

The last item I picked up from the collection was a nail polish (3 shades were available). Hot Fruit  Punch is a pretty bright plum color. I really like the formula. It dries down really quickly and could get a shiny opaque finish in only 2 coats. Plums are always my go-to color for winter. 

Have you tried any of the other new ESSENCE products? I think I might try the mascara and the eyeliners next. :D
