Essence Mono Eye Shadow Strawberry Ice Cream, Shade #68 Review

BY SOMREETA MUKHERJEE

Make up for me has always been just about lipsticks and kohl. However, of late, I have started venturing out of these two options. Recently I happened to buy Strawberry Ice Cream, Shade #68, from the Essence Mono Eye Shadow range. Check out my review in this post:

LIST OF INGREDIENTS (AS ENLISTED IN ESSENCE WEBSITE)

TALC, MICA, BIS-DIGLYCERYL POLYACYLADIPATE-2, CAPRYLIC/CAPRIC TRIGLYCERIDE, ETHYLHEXYL PALMITATE, MAGNESIUM STEARATE, CAPRYLYL GLYCOL, OCTYLDODECYL STEAROYL STEARATE, HEXYLENE GLYCOL, TIN OXIDE, PHENOXYETHANOL, CI 77491 (IRON OXIDES), CI 77891 (TITANIUM DIOXIDE).

MY EXPERIENCE WITH ESSENCE MONO EYE SHADOW STRAWBERRY ICE CREAM, SHADE #68 REVIEW
Frankly speaking,I was quite attracted to the name of this particular shade. After all, who wouldn’t like anything associated with Strawberry Ice Cream? Moreover, since this is the first time I have ever invested in an eye shadow, I wanted something inexpensive and subtle. The shade is perfect for first time users, especially because of the soft shade of pink with the light shimmery look it imparts.

Priced just at INR 199 for 2.5 g (I got it at only at Rs 100 during the Nykaa sale), this eye shadow comes in a transparent, sturdy and travel-friendly, plastic packaging. When opened, there is a pan filled with the soft pink eye shadow with a shimmery feel.

TEXTURE: The texture is smooth and doesn’t weigh the eye lids down. The best part is that the glitters blend in so easily along with the eye shadow and doesn’t smudge at all! Often glitter-based products tend to leave their mark in places where they are not required. But in this case, the fine shimmery particles stay put on the eye lids and never travel down to the cheeks or chin.


SHADE AND PIGMENTATION: The shade of pink is very light, almost like baby pink colour, and the pigmentation is visible only if swatched 4-5 times. At a glance it looks whitish with shimmers all over. It stays well for about 4 to 5 hours, that too without primer.
