The Essence 2-in-1 Eye Shadow & Liner Waterproof ($4.49) is an incredible drugstore find. Available in 4 shades (grey, taupe peach and beige) You can get the entire collection for under $20 online or in-store.
The texture is rich and creamy, and the blendability is good. I like the chubby stick format, though I would prefer if the pencil rolled down all the way to avoid nicking the end. The Essence shadow stick is fantastic for the price, but it can collect in eyelid creases and doesn't work as well as a long-lasting eyeliner. If you're on a budget, the Essence shadow stick will absolutely work as a stunning taupe eye shadow base or shimmer eyeliner. It won't budge once it sets, especially if you use a primer or powder shadow to set. This colour enhances blue, green or light brown eyes beautifully.
Beautiful shimmery colours that work as an amazing base for eye shadow! super pleased with how easily they swipe on with no mess! Since they are a cream however, they do tend to crease a bit, so like to set mine with a bit of translucent powder. Can't beat the price though!
