Essence All About Sunrise Eyeshadow Palette - Swatch, Review, And Makeup Looks

Hi yall...the week end just went by too quickly. Worked a lot on my blog and yet still feel like I'm not getting much done.


  • Compact 6 pan eyeshadow palette. There's a pretty decent amount of product in each pan.
  • .29 oz or 8.5 g


  • Since there wasn't a name for each individual shades, I'm just gonna number them 1 through 6 from top to bottom, left to right. 
  • #1 is a very pale shimmery gold
  • #2 is a medium beige gold with sparkling shimmers
  • #3 is is a medium bronze with sparkling shimmers
  • #4 is a bright warm medium shimmery gold. 
  • #5 is a shimmery toned down gold.
  • #6 is a shimmery medium brown taupe.
  • Overall, they are easy to apply and blend easily. They all had good pigmentation but if you want them to look more intense, it is best if you just use your finger and pat it on your lids.
  • #6 is the only shade that has a soft shimmer, which makes it the only shade in the palette that could be use to create contrast. 
  • With a good primer, you can get up to 6 hours of wear before they start to fade.

Final Thought

It's hard to use the shades in this palette together because most are very shimmery and sparkly but other than that the colors are nice and have a decent application. Pigmentation and longevity is good but could be better.

  1. I like the combination #2 on lid, #6 on outer V - but you know me...
    I am more the dark glitter type so i love it when you are playing with so many kind of colours

    1. colors make me happy but there's been many times I wished I could pull off a dark lipstick for work

  2. How pretty!! I've seen this palette now only a few times but I love how these shades are soo wearable for those starting out or who just love collecting small palettes! I do really like the golds/bronzes!

    1. It's definitely good for someone who's starting off with makeup or on a budget. I love the fact that these shades are wearable for any occasion.
