Essence are releasing another limited edition collection this time developed with four beauty bloggers/vloggers. The collection is aptly names Bloggers Beauty Secrets and contains 4 palettes (with a matching) nail polish made in collaboration with these lovely ladies.
I got my hands on one of the Blogger Beauty Secrets Palettes before their release in June. They’ll be only on stands until then until July.
This is the Essence Bloggers Beauty Secrets Shape & Shadows Eye Contouring Palette.
This was made in collaboration with Mary from Strikeapose.co.uk According to Essence ‘Mary prefers a combination of trendy eye makeup styles and wow brows-so the shapes & shadows palette perfectly fits the bill. The eye contouring palette brings the contouring trend to the eyes and offers eyeshadow, eyebrow powder, highlighter as well as brow wax, which can be used as a basis for eyebrow powder or for keeping the desired shape in place. The Palette contains an applicator for applying powder or combing the brows. The nail polish in a trendy mud shade with a matte rubber finish compliments the look’.
A long description I know, but since I’ve yet to use the palette (until I swatch it right now for this post) I like to add in the brand’s description to just show you what they expect us to get from it 🙂
So in Gemma terms you get five eyeshadows in the palette, with obviously the matte ones doubling up as brow powders which is pretty cool! The shades in the pan look like really good everyday neutral shades. The eyeshadows are encased in a sturdy cardboard magnetic closing palette with a pretty decent mirror on the lid. All the palettes in the collection are like this.
Onto the swatching.
There is also a Prime & Fix Wax that Essence say you can use to set your brows and as an eyeshadow base which is a novel idea.
You also get a mini dual ended eyebrow brush and spooley which is a really nice addition I think.
It’s pretty decent quality too and not too small, so you would actually get use out of it.
The complimenting nail polish for this palette looks a bit like this:
The other three palettes are:
Touch Up To Go One For All & nail polish from dFashion.
Vintage Rose Eye Palette & nail polish from beautypalmira.
And finally The Glow Must Go On Bronzing & Highlighting Palette plus a corresponding nail polish.
The Essence Blogger Beauty Secrets Palettes are limited edition and will be available from next month. They will cost €6.29 and the nail polish will be €2.30.
