Essence Bloom Me Up! Collection
I have the three eyeshadows and the highlighter in the collection and played with them for the past weeks.
The eyeshadows come in three shades : a soft pink, a mint green and a classic ivory. All the shadows have a flower imprint; the texture is soft and buttery and the shadows come off as very light and sheer. Try to build up color and you'll end up with a chalky mess. I like to use these shadows for a subtle eye look, as blending colors, to highlight or for a sheer wash of color; they blend well and look good as long as you don't go overboard with application.
Overall, this is not their best collection ever, as I am not blown away by the eyeshadows but I do like their highlighter. Actually some of the best and most reached for highlighters in my collection are from Essence and I always make a point in picking each new one up. They are definitely worth a try.
