Metallic pastels?  I am here for it!

 

I still remember how excited I was when Essence Cosmetics came to the U.S. by way of Ulta nearly 5 years ago and they’re still cranking out new products keeping us on our toes.

 

Like I don’t own enough eyeshadow palettes I grabbed yet another one last week but I promise it was with good intent.  The 02 “All About the Candies” eyeshadow palette is perfect.  Typically when I do my eyeshadow I have a habit of adding a popof color in the inner corners.  It really does make the look look more complete and it’s also an easy way to make eyes look bigger without much effort.  Remember, highlighting brings out features and contouring adds shadows and depth.  This eyeshadow palette caught my attention because you don’t come across too many good $5.00 eyeshadow palettes and it’s spring so of course pastels are a must.  The textures aren’t the smoothest but they’re not troublesome either.  As with any powder eyeshadow you can kick up the color by using a dampened brush but for what I purchased it for it’ll be just perfect… essentially accent colors.
