Essence Smokey Eyes Set 04 Show off Review




What Brand Says:

Smokey eyes just got easier! This smokey eyes set, in dark grey, is easy to blend and super smooth, great for creating that smokey eye look that never goes out of style.

Price:

299/-INR for 3 g

Shelf life:

36 months

Ingredients:

Not mentioned on pack

My experience with this set:


Packaging:


The eyshadows come in this really nice and sleek looking, grey color plastic, rectangular case that has a transparent, flip open cap. Some details including price, how to use, shelf life are given on the bottom but there is no mention about the ingredients. Why? Anyway i loved the sleek, light weight case, you can carry it easily anywhere even it can fit in your jeans pocket :D

The set contains two eye shadows one creme and one powder, though on the pack they have mentioned one as a eyeliner but it's basically a creme eyeshadow which can be used in multiple ways :)) The set also has a little dual sided mini applicator brush that has sponge tip on one side, where side on other side they have given a stiff brush which you can use to line your lashline. I personally find the stiff brush side useful, i sometimes use it to fill in my brows :D

Color & Pigmentation:


Both the eyeshadows given in this set are basically grey, but different shade of grey which also varies in intensity. The powder eyeshadow is a silver grey shade where as the creme eyeshadow is a true dark grey color. Both the shades are pretty and good quality. The two eyeshadows are of different types like one is powder base and other one is creme based but color payoff of both of these is very good, they deliver quite intense color in single sweep.

Texture & Finish:


The powder eye shadow is very smooth and has silky feel to it. It has almost zero fallout and it blends gorgeously and delivers silky finish which i really like.

The cream eyeshadow is soft to touch, has velvet like texture which just blends in beautifully & evenly on the eyelid area. If you look at it in the case, you'll notice it has a little bit of sheen to it but on the eyelid and swatch it comes semi-matte. I said semi-matte because it does not give flat matte finish, it's not dry, it has some moisture to it and thus finish it delivers is semi matte that is matte with a little subtle sheen or glow to it.

Lasting Duration:


Both the eye shadows are quite long lasting specially the creme one. Even the powder eyeshadow has decent lasting duration, which you can further extend by layering it over an eyeshadow base or you can layer it over the cream one as well.

Affordability & Quality:

Overall it's a decent quality and quantity product that is provided at affordable price tag. One issue there is no mention of the ingredients on the pack, I'm not sure whether they have mentioned them on their website or not. But the ingredients list is suppose to be their on product packaging itself.

Pros:

1. Cute, compact and travel friendly packaging
2. A good combo for creating smokey eye look
3. Both the shades are nice, good on pigmentation
4. Smooth texture, blends easily and evenly
5. No fall out
6. Powder one delivers lovely silky finish, whereas Cream eyeshadow delivers semi matte finish
7. Decent lasting duration
8. Decent quantity, quality and easy on pocket

Cons:

Nothing but the ingredients list is missing on the pack, so I'll deduct some point for that :D

Overall Rate:

4.3/5

Verdict: 04 Show off is a nice and compact set to achieve that quick one minute smokey eye look. Both the shades are good quality, delivers decent color payoff and lasting. The cream one can be doubled up as an eyeshadow base as well as eyeliner too. Overall a good product to try at affordable pricing. There is no mention about the ingredients on the pack, i wonder why? Recommended!
