essence Stay All Day Long Lasting Eyeshadow in 09 For Fairies - swatches, pics, review

Hello, Beautiful!

Essence is one my favorite budget-friendly makeup brands. I recently tried out their Stay All Day Long Lasting Eyeshadow and found another winner from their line! It's super creamy, buildable color, and doesn't budge once it's set. Best part is it retails for around just $3.99.

essence Stay All Day Long Lasting Eyeshadow Review:
This is an affordable, stay-put cream eyeshadow. The texture was nice; very smooth and creamy. It was blendable for a little, then once it sets it won't budge.

The shade I have, For Fairies, is a bit more on the sheer side but you can build the color easily. Just apply, wait about 30 to 60 seconds, and then apply another layer. Continue that process until you reach your desired look.

This is a great cream shadow to try and one I'd recommend!
