PRODUCT REVIEW – Essence My Must Haves Palette and Eyeshadow Refills
Welcome back to my blog sweeties!
Today I have a review and some swatches of the new Essence ‘My Must Haves’ palette and eyeshadow refills. I went ahead and bought an 8-pan palette from my nearest Clicks Pharmacy and here is my take on the product.
The actual palette
There are two palettes to pick from – a 4-pan and a 8-pan palette. Being my practical-self I purchased the 8-panned palette. The palette is made from a firm but light plastic casing. I was expecting it to be heavier but it is quiet light which is perfect for travel! The empty 8-pan palette retails at R45 and the 4-pan palette is R35 (on Takealot.com for just R33)
My chosen eyeshadows
Essence released 20 ‘my must haves’ eyeshadows. These are soft powder eyeshadows and simply click into your ‘my must haves’ palette. They retail for R34,95 for each eyeshadow at 1,7g each. (I saw Takealot.com has them for R33 – Yay!)
I only picked out 8 shades of my favourite shadows and they are as follows:
- 01 coral dream – a soft satin blush in a coral
- 02 all i need – almost metallic light brown
- 03 miss foxy roxy – shimmer brown colour
- 05 cotton candy – a soft pink shimmer shade
- 07 mauvie-time – a soft matt mauve brown shade
- 09 chilli vanilli – a beautiful off-white shade
- 10 apricotta – a very light peach shimmer shade
- 11 stay in coral bay – a beautiful shimmer coral shade
These are stunning shades and as you can see, I love the more peachy-brown colours. The shimmer colours would be good for highlighting the face. There are some beautiful matt colours and stunning metallic-like shades. My favourites are definitely – miss foxy roxy, mauvie-time and stay in coral bay.
I was a bit disappointed that they were not magnetic pans and the plastic does give it a cheap feel, however, with such a good price who could argue. I am very pleased with how soft the eyeshadows are and how easily they blend. I love the fact that you can customise your own palette to suit your own taste and needs.
I would recommend this to anyone who likes a bargain or is on a budget. If you’re looking for something easy and for every day this is perfect!
Thanks for reading! Hope this helped you make a discussion to pick up these eyeshadows. Comment below if you bought these and what you thought of them 🙂
