Essence All About Chocolate Palette

Naamloos 7

A while ago I purchased the Essence All About Chocolates palette. It isn’t new to their collection, but it is really pretty. Even though it’s not a recent purchase, I do want to review it for you guys. If you’re interested, keep on reading!

Naamloos 8The Essence All About Chocolate palette comes in a clear plastic packaging. I like that it’s clear because you can immediately see what colors you’re dealing with and which palette you’re looking at. Besides that I also really like that they used different fonts to write the name of the palette. It gives it a somewhat “funner” look, if you get what I mean.

The palette consists out of six neutral eyeshadows. Four of them are pretty dark and two are pretty light. All colors contain a form of glitter. Even though I would have liked a matte medium brown or a matte highlighter color, I do like the colors that are in this palette.

I think that Essence did a good job putting four darker shades and only two lighter shades in the palette. This way you can decide how dark and how smokey you want to go. For a small palette like this one, two lighter shades are enough. I would probably not use the white shade as an eyelid color myself, but you could perfectly do that, which gives you two eyelid color options.

Like I said I would have liked it if there was at least one matte shadow in here. Because there is not I feel like I at least need one eyeshadow outside of this palette to finish off my look. That because I prefer using a matte highlighter when all the other shadows are shimmery.

When it comes to the pigmentation Essence did a great job. Most colors are decently pigmented. The lighter shades are a little less pigmented, but do show up when you use a cream shadow underneath your eyeshadows. I feel like this palette is very diverse. I can create a very wearable day time look with it, as well as a darker evening look. I like that!

Over all I could say I’m quite a big fan of this eyeshadow palette. I feel like the eyeshadows are pretty pigmented and that there are enough eyeshadows in there to create different kinds of looks. I really recommend it if you’re looking for a budget friendly everyday eyeshadow palette!

The Essence All About Chocolate palette is available at the drugstore for €3,59.

I hope you enjoyed reading today’s review and let me know which budget proof eyeshadow palette is your favorite!

  3. Dit palette heeft mijn hart echt gestolen. Als ik eventjes geen zin heb om na te denken over een ooglook, kom ik vrijwel altijd bij dit palette uit. Super gemakkelijke kleurtjes met een mooie pigmentatie en een fijne structuur. Ik kan me dus helemaal vinden in jouw review!
