Hi Darlings, today’s post is going to be the review and swatch of the Essence Daily Dose Of Energy Eyeshadow Palette.
I don’t have the best relationship with Essence’s eyeshadows but I kept seeing this palette in my feed and it seriously was too cute to pass up.
The packaging is all recycled and something about it made me feel happy, so I decided to try it.
You can buy it here for 6$.
The palette has a cardboard packaging with yellow details. It’s seriously so cute and well done. I love it.
It’s very lightweight and it feels cheap but it doesn’t look cheap, it’s very well done and the attention to the details is amazing.
The shades don’t have names.
It features nine shades: 4 shimmers and 5 mattes.
PIGMENTATION & FORMULA
Mattes: are insanely buttery and easy to blend, this is the kind of formula you can’t screw up because it blends itself and it’s kind of shocking because I always hate Essence eyeshadows, but these are beautiful.
Shimmers: They aren’t all great. The middle one is pure trash. Sheer, chunky and so so bad but the others are fine. They aren’t the prettiest shimmer eyeshadow but you can totally work with them, which, again, shocked me.
Most shades blend easily with brushes but the shimmery ones work best if you use your fingers and you press them on.
With a primer, they last about 8 hours before creasing.

This palette is very pretty. I love the colour story and it really inspires me. The formula of the matte eyeshadows is amazing, the shimmers are good, apart from the middle one. I really like the packaging too. Honestly, it’s definitely a good palette, not the best one I’ve tried and the shimmers could be better but I love the look I’ve created with it and I don’t say that easily about essence eyeshadows. If you don’t have a big budget this is a good palette to have in your collection.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
