Smokey eyes are a big craze nowadays. I have been thinking of buying some eye makeup to try this look for a long time. I wanted an eyeshadow palette which would be self-sufficient as I am too lazy to use too many palettes at a time. So I looked up online and bought Essence Eyeshadow Irresistible Fullmoon Flash, with two shades. Here are the review and swatches.

Price and Quantity:

MRP INR 349/- for 2.8g

My experience with Essence Eyeshadow Irresistible Fullmoon Flash


This eyeshadow palette comes in a round, see-through case. It is a cute travel-friendly case.

The eyeshadow palette has two monochrome shades. One is dark grey while the other one is off-white. It has shimmer in it which makes it suitable to be used during the night time. However, I will not term it as metallic as claimed by the brand.

I used both the shades individually and felt that dark grey suited my wheatish complexion more than the off-white one. The off-white shade looked too white on me and I decided not to use it individually. But the dark grey shade looked really amazing and I liked it on me.

The texture is good and the application is also easy. I tried bending both the shades together and they looked good together. The white shade of the eyeshadow is pigmented enough to give it a somewhat 3D look, but the grey color needs to be reapplied for more pigmentation.  The color stays on for long so it is long lasting.

So I would say that I had a mixed experience with this eyeshadow palette.

  1. No Parabens
  2. Suitable for night time because of its shimmer
  3. Easy to blend
  1. Does not suit all skin colors
  2. Not really 3D

Would I repurchase?

No, because the particular shades it did not really suit my complexion.
