I featured the Essence Melted Chrome Eyeshadows here on my blog back in October of last year, and Essence launched three shades of the Essence Sprinkled Chrome Eyeshadow this year, so I knew I wanted to try them to see how they compared to the old formula. The Melted Chrome Eyeshadows are the prettiest, foil powder eyeshadows which feel as creamy as a liquid eyeshadow and have a high-shine finish on the lids.
Essence Sprinkled Chrome Eyeshadow
The Essence Sprinkled Chrome Eyeshadow trio are £2.99 each, and they each contain 2.1g of product in a circular compact with a clear lid. The price is the same as the Melted Chrome Eyeshadows, which launched with five different shades, but there’s only three available in this new Sprinkled effect.
The Essence Sprinkled Chrome Eyeshadow has a similar multidimensional effect to the marbled shadows in the Huda Beauty New Nude Palette, and they’re amazing, so I had high hopes for these eyeshadows. I bought the shade Venus 01, but the shades are really limited with one shade being a gold, one shade is a silver and one is a bronze.
The Venus 01 shade is a gold shade, and it’s shimmery but no way near as metallic and foiled as the original Melted Chrome Eyeshadows. It’s still a pretty shade, but it’s nothing special, whereas the original Melted Chrome shades were amazing. I wish the finish was the same, and I assumed the little speckles of iridescent powder would make the Essence Sprinkled Chrome Eyeshadow super pretty, but it’s really mediocre.
