Essence Metal Glam Coffee To Glow - Swatch and Review

Yay to a long weekend!  I'm stressing just thinking about the amount of work I have left waiting on me when the weekend is over.
I picked up this Essence eyeshadow from Ulta a little while back and here's the overdue review for you...

  • Nothing fancy but functional and not too bulky. 
  • The top layer is an overspray. Once you scratch through that layer, the shimmers underneath aren't that sparkly. 
  • .09 oz / 2.7 g

  • Coffee to Glow is a medium shimmery light cool toned brown with gold shimmers.
  • Formula has a bit of a weird and slightly creamy feel. Pigmentation not so great. I find that it adheres better on the skin with a glitter primer and by patting it on with your finger instead of a brush.
  • Needs a primer for better color payoff, application, and longevity.
  • Last about 5 hours before showing signs of fading.

Final Thought

It's a shame the formula is not that great but with the right tools and application, you can make it work eventually.

    1. Thank you for stopping by. Follow if you like. I don't think of it as a favor but a way to stay connected with like-minded people.

  2. What a pretty color! So I have a few of the eyeshadows as well and noticed that they work way better if you wet your brush first before applying the shadow. I thought the shadows sucked before I started doing that. This technique worked great for me and hopefully it works for you too!

    1. Thanks for the tip. I'm glad to hear it's working for you. I'm gonna have to give it a try.
