essence colour & go polish in 145 flashy pumpkin*

If you've been reading my blog for a while now you will know that I love my essence nail polishes. The shade that I am sharing with you today is 145 flashy pumpkin. It is a bright, vibrant (but not neon) orange shade with a creme finish. Think of the stringy pith inside a pumpkin, it looks like that shade of pumpkin. The above swatch was three thin glossy coats, easy application and removal.

The essence colour & go polishes retail for S$2.90 (8mL) and come in a variety of different shades and finishes. Halloween is only a month away so make sure you grab this polish and maybe a black and do some cute pumpkin nail art! Get creative!

Review and Swatches: essence 3D Eyeshadow Duo*

In a galaxy far, far away...this product was created out of crushed moon dust, stars and a sprinkle of fairy dust. Lets just have a closer look shall we?

Obviously I'm just joking around with you guys! Today I have a review of the essence 3D Eyeshadow Duo in 07 irresistible smokey eye.  The duos have a similar look to the MAC Extra Dimension range that came out earlier this year but at a fraction of the price.

Today I just have the swatches of this shade to show you, however I have a sultry smokey eye makeup look coming up using this eyeshadow so you can see it in all its' glory!

The shadows were swatched over a base of NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk. The first shadow is a metallic gunmetal with fine silver almost blue shimmers which looks like melted metal and the second shadow is a matte black base with silver shimmers.The shades are very pigmented and when applying them over the base I would recommend patting them on, not dragging them. This gives you a more deep, dark look. 

The texture of the shadows are good, although the black shade contains glitter it doesn't have a gritty texture to it. As with any dark pigmented shadow you will experience some fall out so I would advise doing your foundation routine after applying your shadows.

The essence 3D eyeshadows are available now for S$4.90 (2.8g) and there are nine different colours to choose from (the emerald duo looks beautiful!)

Does anybody else love galaxy looking eyeshadows? I don't know why but I'm always attracted to them...
