Essence Nude Eyes makeup box

Have you noticed almost every brand now has some nude eyeshadow palette/ quad/ trio offers?

I found myself drifting over to the neutral side with lots of FOTDs lately
– Yves Rocher Quad Eyeshadow Sumptuous Color in 06 Incandescent Brown
– MUFE Artist eyeshadows in M646 Latte & ME614 Graphite Brown
– The most recent: Quo Back to Basics Matte.

One more today: Essence How to Make Nude Eyes makeup box!

A cardboard box that holds 6 shimmery neutral eyeshadows, a mirror under the lid and 2 look cards. Here is the inside, in different lighting.

Packaging wise, the box is thicker and has more empty space than necessary. I can still bring it on short work trips as it has most colours I might need.

The eyeshadows have decent pigmentation but nothing to write home about, work best with a primer to prevent fallout as the colours do kick up a bit in the pan with the touch of a brush. I also wish for a better combination of shades, see below to see why.

Swatches of the first row, from L-R: Eye Light Beige, Go For Gold and An Eye On Apricot. Go For Gold while looking darkest among the 3 swatches very close to my skin tone and as a result is hardly used.

The second row: All About Nude, Nude Night Out and Team Nude. The darkest colour in the palette, Nude Night Out, turns out to be a dark brown, not dark enough for most night looks. All About Nude is slightly more grey than Team Nude and are used interchangeably.

The palette has 0.14oz/ 4.2g of products (0.123oz/ 0.7g each eyeshadow), retails $9.99. For comparison, Essence 3D eyeshadows are 0.09oz/ 2.8g for $3.49 a piece. I only suggest Nude Eyes palette for those who need a simple neutral palette to travel with.

About Sparkled Beauty

I love makeup with passion. No, I was not growing up holding eyeshadow in my hand, and I went through many years not having much makup on my face until one day it hit me. It was probably just the right time for me to open up my heart and let it in, and I could never stop.
