What does the brand say about the product:
big talent with an improved texture: even softer and easier to blend, the special relief structure offers an ultimate 3D look and creates a cool finish with a 3D effect – from satin to metallic to shimmering - upon application. applied moist, the 3D duo eyeshadow guarantees even more intense results.




The eyeshadow comes in a clear plastic packaging hence the color would be easily noticeable in your make up stash. It does not come with any applicator or make up brush hence you would need to purchase one. It is travel friendly but of course it would shatter if you are not careful.



The eye shadows came in a duo format which means there are 2 shades which can be used individually as an all over color on the lid or the lighter shade can be used on the entire eye lid and the darker one in the crease as a transition color to give more depth & dimension. The shades are buttery soft and well pigmented. I would say they are glitter shadows in a pressed form. They are 3D which essentially I would say are metallic in texture. 




The top shade is a steel grey color which stays true to its color. The lower shade is a light silvery pink which may end up showing almost silver if you do not use a primer/concealer/foundation to prep your eye lids before application. I did use the light pink eyeshadow wet in the EOTD above. There is a little fallout due to the nature and texture of the shadow. They look lovely on the eye lids and you are all set to look glam glam with this eyeshadow. With primer it should last pretty long on the eyelids and without may wear off easily especially if your eye lids are oily and the weather is humid. I like the eyeshadow although I am a matte eyeshadow fan. This is perfect for parties and evening make up looks. You must try it for sure.

The Good:
Easily available in stores and online
Inexpensive
Two shades in 1
Metallic finish
Soft and buttery and easily blendable
Lasting power is decent
Perfect for parties and evening make up
Travel friendly packaging

The not so Good:
Little fall out due to shimmery texture
Metallic eyeshadows may be a personal choice for some.

Rating: 4.2/5


Essence 3D Eyeshadow in Irresistible First Love is a beautiful pink and grey eyeshadow duo which will suit all skin types. It packs on and blends well on the eyelids. For the price and how it looks on my eyelids I would definitely like to try more shades and hence I recommend this duo to all.
