Essence Melted Chrome Eyeshadow Review

affordable cruelty-free drugstore essence eyeshadow review swatches

When I was recently exploring my local drugstore I came across the Essence melted chrome eyeshadows. They looked so pretty and metallic so I picked up one shade (“copper me”).
But then Essence very kindly send over all of the shades which I’m very thankful for. Of course I’ll still be honest with you what I think about these eyeshadows.
If you’re interested in my opinion then here we go…

While I was on the hunt for a good black eyeshadow I came accross the brand Coloured Raine.
Once I did some research on the brand I got really excited to try some of their products and purchased some eyeshadows… and more eyeshadows… and more eyeshadows.
I already did a review on their Queen Of Hearts palette so now I really want to share my opinion on the single eyeshadows as well.

Most people probably shy away from colorful eyeshadows. But I think they are so much fun!
The collab palette from Morphe with Jaclyn Hill really inspired me to play with the blue, turquoise and green eyeshadows, combine them in one look and do a classic smokey eye.

Even though I think a halo cut crease is not the most flattering look on me personally I love doing them! They look so good on so many other people. It’s smokey but also nice and clean.
I feel like they look pretty complicated but once you get the hang of it they are actually pretty easy to do.

Once I saw the palette of the collab of Jaclyn Hill with Morphe I immediately fell in love with how it looks! But I thought: Do I really need another palette? So in the end I still bought it…
I really love that you have so many everyday neutral colors but also some fun colors in the palette.
I have this palette now for 7 months or so. So I thought I’ll tell you my thoughts on it.
