Essence Metal Glam Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

Essence Metal Glam Eyeshadows

Get ye to Ulta and grab some cheap Essence Metal Glam Eyeshadow! If you told me yesterday that $2.99 Essence Metal Glam Eyeshadow would rock my socks I might not have believed you but these shimmering eyeshadows are all the rage here at Musings Headquarters and I demand you grab some yourself.

Promise, no frosty fall out metallic shadow here just smooth gorgeous sparkling color!

Essence Metal Glam Eyeshadow are a metallic finish shadow available in five shade selections. At first glance they actually look like some sort of cream glitter eyeshadow kinda like the Wet n Wild Fantasy Makers Glitter Palettes. This did worry me because that’s a whole lot of glitter….! But actually they are powder and all that hardcore glitter you see on top is simply an over spray. You can see below where I swatched it away!

Under all the glitter is a very soft, easy to blend eyeshadow that has a faint metallic sheen on lids. I heard them described as chalky, flaky, etc…but I honestly didn’t experience that. I thought the velvety texture of the shadow was very nice and I had no issues with fall out. The shadow applies easily and they have a super crease-free finish on my drier eyes without eyeshadow primer! The pigment is rather excellent on these little guys as well.

I mean for $2.99 I can’t complain about a single thing here. They aren’t a full metallic finish but they do quite remind me a little bit of the Cargo Metallico Eye Kit shadows! I’m quite alright with the metallic sheen versus the full on metallic finish as typically metallics are a bit frosty on me. These have a lovely finish with just a touch of a metal sheen!

Overall, if you’re looking for a cheap thrill I’d say Essence Metal Glam Eyeshadow delivers it! Great beauty budget pick up!

    I’ve heard good things about this budget brand, I’d love to grab some of these. Are these 2 the only shades though? A gold would be nice to have in this.
