Review: Essence I Heart Nude eye shadows (03 Creme Brulee, 05 My Favorite Tauping, 06 Coffe Bean)

10:45

Hey Beauties!

Finally. I've had this for a while and the review is here. It's one of the best affordable eye shadows in terms of texture. They're very affordable and have a great pigmentation and feel to them.

They were first introduced in Essence's Limited Edition I Heart Nude. The eye shadows have regular plastic Essence packaging and each hold 1.8 grams of product. Each costs 2.79€. It says that they are baked eye shadows with a satin smooth texture for a luminous eye makeup and that they are longlasting. 


Those eye shadows are actually now in their regular range, so you can still get them. I think there are 6 shades available and I got 3. All the shades really do have a satin like texture. They all feel very smooth to the touch and give off a really good pigmentation. Bare in mind that the matte shade is a little less pigmented than other two shimmery shades. They can all be build up and they do last a long time on me, but most of the eye shadows do. 

Essence already had similar eye shadows in their limited edition Cookies and Cream and I got this shade here. They made the same packaging and the texture feels the same. I was really wowed by the quality of Cookies and Cream eye shadow, so I knew these will also be great. 


03 Creme Brulee is white champagne shade with tiny shimmer in it. It looks very satin like on the skin and it's great for a highlight. On the touch it feels pretty dry.


05 My Favorite Tauping is light taupe shade. It's perfect for in the crease or all over the eyelid for those who love matte shades. This one actually feels more wet or cream to the touch. It's very similar to the texture from the shade I got from LE Cookies and Cream. It's matte, but still has some very subtle sheen to it.


06 Coffee Bean is dark chocolate brown shade. It has the biggest shimmer of all the shades. It also feels more dry to the touch, but has a very silky texture as do all of them.


Here you can see the swatches of all the shades I got. Together they create perfect neutral eye makeup.


Here I used 05 My Favorite Tauping all over the lid and I used 03 Creme Brulee in the inner corner of my eye.


This is how all three look like, paired together. 03 Creme Brulee is in the inner corner of the eye, 05 My Favorite Tauping is on the center of the lid and in the crease and 06 Coffee Bean is at the outter third of the eye in the corner. I actually like using them all together and creating softer brown smokey eye.



I really like baked makeup products in general, because they last a really long time and are usually very well pigmented. These are no exceptions. They feel very satin like on the touch and while applying. They blend great and they last well. What more could you wish? Definitely recommend for anyone on the market for cheap neutral eye shadow shades. I know I've been using them a lot since, I got them.

  1. Yay, sem nestrpno čakala tvojo oceno. :P
    Res so krasna senčila in čudovit makeup si ustvarila, primeren tudi za čez dan. :)
    Jaz sem zadnje čase nora na take odtenke, tako da sem morala enega kupit, ko sem videla, da so že na stojalu z rednimi izdelki. Mi je uspelo dobiti samo tega najtemnejšega, ostalo je bilo pokupljeno. :P Ampak bom definitivno vzela še My favourite tauping, ker je super za v gubo. :)

    1. Hvala Sandra:)). Ja se mi zdi, da so non stop razprodani oz. jih prepočasi polnijo zraven. My favorite tauping je must have odtenek. Res odličen za v gubo in tudi drugače:).

  3. Pa se ti je izpolnila želja, da bi Essence naredil senčke enake kvalitete kot iz Cookies TE :) Vsi trije odtenki so taki, ki bi jih takoj nosila in tebi zelo pašejo :) Sploh še nisem videla nobene od novih stvari, nikakor ne morem priti do Műllerja :/

    1. Mogoče pa me celo kaj poslušajo?!:D Hvala:). Se mi zdi, da bi ti bil všeč My Favorite Tauping. Je bolj nežen taupe odtenek od L'Oreal Color Riche L'ombre Pure (Breaking Nude). Mene kaj drugega preveč ne zanima. Se mi zdi, da so manj novih stvari dodali, kot prejšnja leta. Mogoče mi je zanimiva še maskara za obrvi od Essence:).

  6. Creme brulee bo definitivno moj <3 ostala dva sta mi tudi všeč in bosta najbrž slej ko prej pristala v košarici za nakup, ker so mi tovrstni odtenki še najbolj všeč in mi je bilo takrat, ko je bila Cookies LE res žal da si nisem še temnejšega odtenka kupila, ker so res super senčke:)

    1. Meni tudi. Jaz sem mislila, da nikoli več ne bom dobila podobnih odtenkov in kakovosti iz Cookies LE. So naju lepo presenetili za drugo priložnost;).

    1. Thank you so much :) I don't really have an excuse. For some reason I'm trying to avoid FB, even though every blog has its own FB page :)
