Hidden Gem at the Drugstore: Essence Metal Shock Eyeshadows

The Essence Metal Shock Shadows really surprised me and I think they're hidden gems at the drugstore. Cream/Liquid shadows are a fun way to play with eyeshadow. These particular shadows come in seven different shades, they're very easy to work with and very shimmery. I initially bought three shades and had to go back and pick up the rest of the shadows because I was so impressed. You are probably familiar with the Stila Glitter and Glow shadows and I want to tell you they're not as reflective with the glitter particles. I don't feel like they're dupes, but the Essence shadows stand on their own and I find them easy to wear every day.


These shadows can be applied on their own, or over a base shadow. The doe foot applicator applies the shadows easily and precisely. You can also pat out the shadows with your finger, and blending with a brush worked well. Once it dries down, it won't move and the lasting power really impressed me, especially since I have hooded lids. They also didn't transfer into the crease. If you want a more opaque application apply it with the doe foot, your finger will give you a more sheer applicator.

Overall thoughts: If Essence releases any new cream shadows, I'm buying them. I really hope they release some warmer shades. These are fantastic! I'm so happy to own them all. The reflects are small and not chunky, they wear great for an every day look. The swatches really don't show you how glittery and reflective they really are. If you've been hesitant of these, go ahead and try one.

  5. These look super cool! I agree that I would love to see more warmer shades, but I think they would be a cute addition for festival looks.

  6. These seem great! I just feel like the colors are too bold for myself. If they have more neutral colors
    I´ll totally pick one up!
