Essence – Step into magic wonderland eyeshadow palette

Just before the winter began, essence cosmetics came with a new collection, the magic wonderland.

The only two things I bought from this collection is the eyeshadow palette and the colour changing lipbalm. The line wants to take you in the magic world of christmas.

The eyeshadow palette is available in the variant 01 – One way road to fairyland. I find the colours and the pallette beautifull. The palette contains 9 different colours in purple shades, blue shades and pink shades. I always find purple and pink beautiful with green eyes, thats why I bought this palette.

I wanted to create a dreamy look with this palette

I used the colours 2, 6, 7 en 9 from the palette. Making an eyemake-up look and taking pictures from it, is a bit new for me, but since i’m joining the 100 days of make-up challenge I have enought practice time.

Speaking about dreamy, I bought myself a some new glasses and a sunglass too.

Previous year I was totaly in love with a seetrue frame from the Kyllie Minoque Eyewear collection from the Specsavers. Since I had to wait for 2018 to get a new compensation I didn’t expect it would still be there. But with a coincidence visit at the Specsavers in Haarlem I saw the frame was still there (I was SO happy!!) My husband would like the credits for this, because he saw the frame first.

Specsavers also had an offer for the second glasses for free. So I found a beautiful sunglass from the Kylie Minoque Eyewear collection too. I still have to make a picture with the sunglasses, but I still have to wait for the sun tho.



Despite I find my first look reasonably, I am not that satisfied about this palette

This is actually the first time I am not that satisfied about an Essence product. I find the colours in the palette very beautifull, but the pigmentation is very bad. Also the eyeshadow has a lot of fall out, and because you need a lot of eyeshadow to make it visible you also have a lot of fall out. Since this palette is made for christmas too, I would like to see a more magical palette.
