Essence are known for always launching new nude palettes, with different variations of the word ‘nude’ within the product name. The newest palette is the Essence The Nude Edition Eyeshadow Palette, which is part of their Trend Edition Collections. In the past they’ve created underwhelming palettes like the All About Nudes Palette which was really poorly pigmented, but this new offering looks a lot more promising.

The Essence The Nude Edition Eyeshadow Palette is €4.99 and contains nine powder eyeshadows in a rounded, rectangular shaped palette with a clear lid. The palette contains a total of 10g of product working out at 1.11g of product per shadow which is a really decent amount of product. Inside the palette, there appears to be a mixture of both matte and shimmer shades.
Looking at the swatches, the Essence The Nude Edition Eyeshadow Palette does look really pretty and the shades all look decently pigmented too. I like that they’ve included swatches on three different skintones too, as it’s much more helpful to know how each shade will look on different skintones. I also really like that the shades aren’t all just warm tones like many nude palettes these days. It’s nice to see a mixture of tones, and for under €5 it’s a bargain little palette.
