Review: Essence Cookies & Cream eyeshadow (03 Last Night a Cookie Saved My Life!)

13:13

Hey Beauties!

I was really excited about this LE Cookies & Cream, but I didn't wanted to spend money on all the products. I thought I would want the blush, but I didn't like it as much in the store. I'm still sorry for not picking up the shimmer pearls.


Finally, I decided to take just one of the eyeshadows. The shade is called 03 Last Night a Cookie Saved My Life! How cute is that? It's deep brown shade with warmer undertones of violet and red. It looks very golden brown on the photos, but it's actually a bit more red and violet toned. Perfect for my dark warm brown eyes. It also has a very very tiny shimmer in it, which gives a nice sheen to the eyes. It doesn't look like a shimmering eyeshadow at all.




It's baked eyeshadow and it's supposed to be ultra silky and smooth texture. The eyeshadow is definitely very silky and easy to blend. It's pigmented and if you only touch it slightly you get enough eyeshadow to put all over the lid. I really like the smooth texture and how it glides on the eyes. Why doesn't Essence do those kind of formulas in their regular range? I don't get it. If you have the capabilities to create a good product, why limit it only on limited editions?


I've always been a fan of baked makeup products, because they last a life time. Literally. I have Deborah blush that looks like I haven't put a brush into it and I've been using it for 5 years. With Essence, I also think that baked eyeshadows are always more pigmented then regular.

The packaging is plastic, not the most sturdy one. It contains 1.5 grams of eyeshadow and costs 3.19€. I think it's a little too much for Essence eyeshadow, but I do really like the quality of it - so go for it. If you like any of the shades, I recommend buying, because the texture is really good.


What did you get from this LE?

  1. Se strinjam glede formul pri essence. TE imajo ponavadi boljšo kvaliteto. Imam en kremni blush iz ne vem katere TE in je res dober, v normalni ponudbi jih pa sploh ni. Pa te long lasting šminke, TE briljantna kakovost, potem pa naredijo celo redno kolekcijo in imajo slabo obstojnost :/

    1. Res ne razumem njihove marketinške logike:/ Lahko bi bili vsi izdelki tako dobri in bi se kakovost celotne blagovne znamke dvignila, s tem pa tudi prodaja. Ah ja..kaj bom jaz njim govorila:))

  3. Kot je že Mateja napisala, jaz tudi opažam, da dela Essence ta razne TE kolekcije bolj kvalitetne izdelke kot jih ima v redni liniji. Meni je bil blush iz te kolekcije zelo všeč, ampak ga nisem kupila, ker imam že preveč raznih blushev. So bila pa tudi senčila lepa, ampoak takih rjavih mono senčil se večinoma izogibam, ker imam rjavih senčil že veliko.

    1. Kdo bi jih razumel:) Ja blush je meni bil tudi lep, ampak kot praviš jih imam jaz tudi preveč. Senčilu pa se nisem mogla upreti, ker itak najraje uporabljam rjave odtenke:) Če bi imeli še večjo izbiro bi zdaj kupila še več odtenkov:)

  7. Sem jo danes zasledila, zadnja je bila, v našem DM-u, pa sem jo poswatchala in bila razočarana, saj se je senčka takoj izbrisala,
    kot bi izginila, pa nisem fejst drgnila, samo narahlo...

    Je pa krasen odtenek sicer...
