See it through my Eyes

When it comes to an eye shadow palette, the Chinese brands are all over the place and the prices are quite affordable. If you compare to those, these shadows might sound dearer. But nevertheless, the colors are interesting and mono eye shadows are really cute. Don’t you think so?


As you know these are mono, they are packed in a round pan with a clear click lock plastic lid. The shadow has an engraved pattern which gives it an edge from the others. It has no mirror, no brush.


The “Back to Khaki” is gunmetal green which is really flattering. It gives an instant glam look to the face and attention is all on the eyes. I like to wear the mascara in two layers to bring out the extra oomph. 


These are butter like smooth and wear beautifully even with a brush. On using the finger, the finish improves and looks further intense. They don’t crease if wore on a primer or powder. the finish appears shimmery but not over the top at all. It is a very wearable finish and makes the eyes look mesmerizing.

Pigmentation & Staying Power

The color pay off is impressive as I have mentioned. I like to use it with a brush, and I thank Essence for the formula. it stays put for upto 8 hours on me.
