REVIEW + swatches: Essence How to make bright eyes (Make-up Box)

Hi cuties :)

I'll have a review for you today. I'll talk about Essence's How to make bright eyes, Make-up box. I bought this one second hand, because I thought that the price is quite high, I mean 6-7€ for basically six eyeshadows.. However, I absolutely ADORE the packaging, I think it's extremely cute :) btw, the similarity to Benefit of course, is not to deny, very clear ;)

What they say: "big bright eyes! six eyeshadow colors including apricot, vanilla, rosé and iridescent grey create two different looks – one classic and fresh, the other glamorous. depending on the mood and the occasion, the how to make bright eyes make-up box offers the equipment for gorgeous “bright eyes” styles. the box also contains a styling card with step-by-step instructions on how to create the styles. including an eyeshadow applicator and mirror."

This make-up box has 6 eyeshadows, a nice mirror, a dual-ended brush and sponge applicator plus 2 cute cards with looks. The packaging is not that big, it's about the size of my hand and it's made from sturdy cardboard. You get 4,2g of products.

The eyeshadows could be more pigmented and I also had problems when I blended them, because the colour intensity faded.

Light up - soft shimmery pink
Eyes bright open - salmon shimmer
Team bright - taupe beige shimmer

These are quite pigmented, except for the salmon shade.

Vanilla eyes - cream shimmery colour, ideal for highlighting
Natural beauty - light pink
The irresistible - lilac

- travel friendly
- cute packaging
- very little or no fallout

- pigmentation could be better
- they don't blend very nicely
- quite pricey

Overall I really like the concept of these make-up boxes, and these one is an ok box, not that great and not that bad either.

I hope you enjoyed this :) Let me know your opinion if you have this product ;)
