I’m really impressed by the Smokey Eyes Sets by Essence.

There are two different sets. One is black and the other brown. I showed you swatches of both in THIS post.

The set comes with a gel liner, eyeshadow and an applicator (sponge, brush). The packaging is OK. Not fancy but useful, robust and quite easy to handle. The eyeshadow is well pigmented, which I like very much. It’s soft, maybe at times to soft. The gel liner isn’t pigmented enough for me. It’s good to use it as a base, but not quite pigmented enough to use it as a liner. I can’t write anything about the applicator because I don’t use such applicators.

I can’t remember the price, but as far as I remember these sets are worth every cent.

I made a quick make up mainly with the Punk Vibe Smokey Eyes Set so you can see how it looks like on the eyelid. I also used The She Space eyeshadow (in the inner half of the eyelid; I can’t remember which shade I used) and some highlighter (also don’t know which one). I usually apply eyeshadows directly over a cream base, but this time I applied a neutral eyeshadow over cream base and then applied the Punk Vibe eyeshadow. I used this aproach manly because the Punk Vibe eyeshadow is dark and very well pigmented, but I didn’t want a very dark look.

Here are the pictures of the very simple look …

I was very clumsy at applying mascara. Sorry.

Hope my review was useful. I would love to hear your thoughts about this product or some other products you like for smokey eyes.

  1. Hehe, saj vem, reklama ni bila mišljeno slabo, zato tudi z veseljem berem vaše prispevke, ker tako fino predstavite izdelke. :) Samo tvoje stvaritve so mi navadno res všeč, potem pa kar zamika kupit. :) Naslednjič, ko bom v bližini Essence stojala. :yes:

  2. Thank you, ladies! :rose:

    Ulmiel, po moje nimaš nič za izgubiti, če sprobaš to Essence zadevo. Res pišem kot da reklamiram zadevo, a meni je res fajn in sama sem jo kupila, torej mi te “reklame” noben ni plačal. :biggrin: Rada priporočam izdelke, ki so mi všeč in po vrh vsega še ne stanejo veliko. Upam, da ti bo všeč, če se boš odločila za nakup. Hvala, ker si delila z menoj, kaj uporabljaš za smokey eyes. ;)

  3. Zanimivo, Essence me do zdaj ni navdušil, tale reklama je pa kar fina … morda ga preizkusim, sploh, ker je Essence precej poceni.  Sicer za klasičen smoky eyes uporabljam Borjouis smoky eyes trio, črn, in sem zelo zadovoljna z njim (kombiniram z ArtDeco črnim eyelinerjem), za rjavega pa imam Oliframe paleto, katere ne maram preveč, vendar ima nekaj rjavih odtenkov, ki zdržijo nekaj časa, ki ga kombiniram z ArtDeco 14 senčilom. Potem pa gre nekako. :)
