Swatches: Essence Breaking Dawn Glitter Eyeliners and Pigments10:51 AM
Several weeks ago while grabbing some stocking stuffers at Ulta, I found the remnants of an Essence Breaking Dawn makeup collection display and picked up a couple of the remaining items. There wasn't much left of what looked to have been an interesting collection, but I was able to get two glitter eyeliners and a pigment.
The two eyeliners are in a dark translucent black base - Alice Had a Vision Again is a navy glitter and Jacob's Protection is a dark purple glitter.
Both come with a small and thin artificial bristle applicator.
The pigment I picked up, Jacob's Protection, is a dark almost black pigment with iridescent shimmer. This would make a gorgeous eyeliner.
Swatches below. The eyeliners required several swipes to get the color to pay off, so if you are looking for a subtle glitter to wear as an eyeliner alone or on top of your favorite everyday liner to kick it up a notch, these would be pretty good. Once dry, they lasted all day without flaking off, which was also nice.
The pigment is rich and dark - the picture below doesn't do it much justice. I wore mine over Fyrinnae's Pixie Epoxy and it lasted all day with nice color and shimmer payoff. I haven't tried this as a liner yet, but think i would be a nice alternative to plain black.
There were several other items in this collection that I missed out on, including two highlights, a blush and three other pigments. Prices started at $1.99 for the liners and went up from there. Did you pick any of this collection up?
