Essence 50s girls Reloaded Haul and swatches

Hey Guys,

Sorry for being MIA, I have been very sick lately but all is good now and I am back on track with a small haul cum first impressions cum swatch post. I recently spotted the Essence stand at Target with the 50s girls Reloaded special edition items and this is a re-promote trend edition, as it had earlier come out last year as well. I stocked up on a couple lipsticks and some eye stuff so lets just get right into it.

So I bought the lipsticks in 01 Back to the 50's which is a red and 02 I'm Sailing which is a peach. The eyeshadow duo is in 01 I'm a Marine girl and the brush is a dual ended eyeshadow brush.

Below are the swatches of the eyeshadows and the lipsticks.

The lipsticks are very creamy, super pigmented and glide on easily. I love the packaging because they look exactly like Mac lipsticks. The peach is a very light colour for me to pull off but I will be trying to pair it with maybe a darker gloss or just mix both the colours and create a wearable shade. The red is just a classic red with more orange undertones. The eyeshadow brush is just average, good enough just to apply eyeshadow. Nothing major about the brush. The eyeshadow duo is a pretty champagne colour and a pretty blueish purple. More blue in the pan and more purple on application. The eyeshadows are powdery and do take a few swipes to create intensity.
Overall I love the lipsticks, not so much the eyeshadow brush and the eyeshadows but I could still make it work.

Hope you guys enjoyed my haul cum review.
