Review: Essence Metal Glam Eyeshadow in "(18) Choco-Chic"


Hey beauties,

Hope you all are doing great. Metallic eye shades are so in vogue this year.  Today I will be reviewing Essence Metal Glam Eyeshadow in shade "Choco-Chic". Let's see what I have to say about this little gorgeous eye shade.

This eyeshadow has soft and smooth texture. The smooth texture makes it really easy to apply and blend. Finish of this eyeshadow isn't fully metallic but rather its semi-satin. Its finish is somehow unique and is somewhere between matte and silky finish. The pigmentation of this eyeshadow is great. What I really like about this product is that while applying this eyeshadow, I didn't experience much of fall out like other velvety or metallic eye shades. However, you may experience slight fall out in the pan because of the soft and smooth texture.

The shade choco-chic is a deep chocolate brown shade with slight sheen and very fine shimmer particles. This shade is perfect to use in the crease or outer corner of the eye for a subtle brown smokey eye look. The staying power of this eyeshadow is pretty impressive. I applied and tested it many times without any primer and it lasted on me easily till the eve without any fall out and creasing. I have sensitive eyes and luckily I didn't notice any irritation after using this eyeshadow. Now take a lot at this gorgeous brown shade which is perfect for fall/winters.

Overall, am quite pleased with the finish and performance of this eyeshadow. Its finish is kind of unique. Luckily its not chalky like matte eye shades and also doesn't have heavy glitter particles. The only downside is that it isn't actually fully metallic as the name claims. So if you are looking for something more glamorous and lustrous, then this is not for you. Otherwise, its a beautiful brown eyeshadow with some fine shimmer and subtle sheen.

The Goods:
  • Great Pigmentation
  • Smooth texture with fine shimmer and light sheen
  • Minimum or no fall out
  • Doesn't crease
  • Easy to blend
  • Good staying power

The Bads:
  • Is not fully metallic and lacks luster

Price & Availability: Essence metal glam eyeshadows are available at essence counters across the globe. In Pakistan, you can find these at essence stands/counters in your city for almost PKR 520/-. Few shades are also available online at and Beauty Arena.

My Rating:  4/5
