…………….deals with everything feminine, make up and beauty being an integral part

Again Essence ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

This time it is their single eye shadow, shade “Mystic lemon”.

The color is a creamy very very light yellow, which when blended lends a beautiful sheen to the skin. It is not shimmery or chalky and blends like a dream. The finish is kinda Satiny.

Ideal highlighting shade especially for the brow bone and inner corners of the eye. ย Essence says it belongs to the holographic range, but I could not undermine any holographic effect of it ๐Ÿ˜› :). It lasts for about six hours on primed eyes and without primer it fades off real soon. Highly pigmented shade, one swipe picks up sufficient amount of the ES.

Now coming to the best part of this shade, its touted to be a close dupe of the NARS “Albatross” blush. I use ย this shade mostly for highlighting my face, the areas such as bridge of nose, the cheekbones below the eye socket, the cupids bow etc. When blended, this eye shadow makes the skin glow like satin, without being chunky glittery or shimmery. I have found my HG highlighter in this one :). The glow seems to emanate from within. ย I am more than happy to have found a “Albatross” dupe for a dime :). Its a perfect highlighter for the yellowย undertoneย  of my complexion.

The left Swatch is of essence ES “Disco Queen”, I reviewed few days back and the right one is of “Mystic Lemon”.

Price: Euro 1.55

Summary: Highly Recommended :). Please Please buy it if you get a chance. Its a Eye Shadow and highlighter combined in one, and is worth a dime. Very Versatile product. Awesome quality, finish, texture and lasting power, but yes your face should be primed and Prepared.

Product score: 4.5/5
