I Won a Fabulous Giveaway by Miss Rusty!


Hey Dolls! A couple of weeks ago, I've won an Essence Giveaway by Miss Rusty. Check out her awesome blog and say hi to her.

When I learned that I had won the Essence Giveaway, I put my hands in the air and WOOT WOOT! Uber
X-cited Yo! I received two full size Essence Cosmetics Eye Products. Woohoo!

So now, let's find out what I've won!

Night Club Glamour To Go Eyeshadow Palette

Packaged in a clear acrylic casing with the logo and stylish design printed on top. 
It's quite sturdy and thick with a snap closure. 

The palette includes eight eyeshadow colors (Greys, Browns, Blues & Taupes) and a duo applicator (sponge and brush).

($5.90 for 0.26 oz / 7.5g)

  • Pigmentation - Phenomenal pigmented with a mix of glittery and shimmer shadows.
  • Texture - Soft powdery but not chalky
  • Staying Power - Quite good. No creasing and smudging. 
  • Application - Easy to apply and blend well.

This is the perfect and must have palette for those who love to rock a smokey eye. You can create many looks with this palette - (Natural Smokey Eye/ Classic Sexy or Dark Smokey Eye/ Rock Chick Smokey Eye). The colors are great on every eye color! Overall, excellent quality and fun to play with.

3D Duo Eyeshadow

Packaged in a round grey plastic case with clear top cover.
Fyi, you can depot it if you have limited space. Let me know if you want me to show you how to depot it.

It comes two perfectly aligned hues- Glitter purple and frosted lilac.
It has a cool 3D look and offers 3D effect. It features a 3mm high relief 'wavelike' design offers a 3D look.

Swatches & Mini Review

02 irresistable purr-ple
($4.90 for 0.09 oz / 2.8g)

  • Pigmentation - Phenomenal pigmented with gun metal effect.
  • Texture - Ultra light eyeshadow texture.
  • Staying Power - Quite good, up to 8 hours.
  • Application - Easy to apply and blend well.
  • Fallout - Zero.

  • 3D Duo Eyeshadow can be used wet or dry. For more intense effect, dampen your eyeshadow brush with water or any eye-drops, then apply slightly wet eyeshadow to your lids. Overall, good quality for the price.
