Essence Cosmetics has been upping their game lately with regards to their Trend Limited Edition releases. They have ventured into full, all-in-one palettes which is major thing when it comes to a brand like Essence as most of their products are individuals so it’s a nice change to see a big palette from them.
This is the Essence Create & Transform palette and it contains 15 pans which consist of contour powders, blush powders, highlighting powders and three gorgeous transformer shades along with a dewy gloss pan.
The only thing I wish this palette had is a mirror as it’s big enough to hold one and it doesn’t have one. The palette also comes with a flat eyeshadow brush, which didn’t really make any sense to me as this is a face palette but there really isn’t anything stopping you from using these shades as eyeshadows.
First three shades are the contour shades, and these are so good for us paler skin toned girls as they are light enough that they don’t look orange when applied. These shades are also perfect for using as the transition shades when using them as eyeshadows.
There are six really gorgeous blush shades, some are nice and bright and there are also some lovely neutral shades that can be used with a range of makeup looks. I have to say all the powders are amazing in both formulation and pigmentation. They have great colour pay-off and they blend out brilliantly.
For highlighting there are two shades as well as three transformer shades which are meant to be used over the regular highlighters to intensify them and make them pop just that bit more. I personally found the transformer shades to look incredible one their own firstly and on the inner corners of the eyes.
The final pan is a gloss, which I have not removed the plastic film from and I honestly don’t plan too as I personally think it will just get super messy and the powders will probably end up in it. You can just use Vaseline or cosmetic gloss instead of it. Personally think they should have sold it separately as a larger pan or made a little kit of the palette and the gloss in a tube.
Those are all my thoughts on this gorgeous palette from Essence. I believe it’s out now and available up until the end of May.
