Recently during the week I posted a blog about some new products that caught my eye at Shoppers Drug Mart. Apart of the new arrivals was a collection from Essence called "Cherry Blossom Girl". The collection encompassed a spring feel with both light and bright colors. I picked up the quad palette in 01 labelled Dreaming Under a Cherry Tree. Dreaming Under a Cherry Tree is a cute little palette, it contains 4 richly pigmented shadows; a natural beige, a peach, orange, and a brown. I love how all these colors blend together. The texture is smooth, and it transfers onto the eye really well. In the pan the shadows did have some fall out, but on the eye they hold up great. Overall, I give this palette a thumbs up! I enjoy using it, the shades are beautiful and very wearable, and the price is really cost effective.

Now for the eye pictures...it is sooo hard for me to take these kind of pictures without being so blurry! I know you can't really see much of the shadow in the first two pics but the third picture shows the shades blended together. On my lashes I am wearing Marcelle's Lash Xtension Plus!
For my lid I used the beige color, I then started working some brown into the crease, I gradually added some more and pulled in some of the orange. I love the effect the orange gives off, it brings in some golden brown hues.
Have you tried any Essence shadows out? Any faves?
