The Essence All That Greys Eyeshadow Palette

So, if you have been following my blog for a while, you will know that I am such a big fan of Essence. And without stating the obvious (it's absolutely gorgeous), I think Essence have created a winner here. Now, this is a limited edition pallet that was only released in South Africa recently and as far as I can gather, it is no longer available in Europe and the UK (Soz). 

As soon as I laid my eyes on this pallet I knew it had to make its way into my growing collection. 

The Essence All That Greys palette seems to have taken the best parts of the All About Roses and the All About Greys palettes and thrown them into a 7 shade palette for anyone that loves a grey smokey eye.
With pinks to the left, running through to cool greys and ending with a deep black at the far right, it offers a range of possible looks. I, however, do miss a matt shade or two, as the entire palette contains shimmery shades. But, never the less I'm absolutely smitten and here is why...

As soon as I got home (after a photography session) and got the chance to play with the shades, I noticed the amazing pigmentation, especially the darker grey and black shades, and the soft, powdery texture which make them easy to apply and blend.

My favourite combination thus far is using the pink-peach toned shade (second shade from the left) over the entire lid and inner corner, the darker grey shade (fifth shade from the left)  in the crease, and building it up with the darkest grey shade (second from the right) over the middle of the lid with the black shade to the outer corner of the eye. 

I am completely in love with this palette and know for a fact that I am going to get a lot of use out of it.

What are your thoughts on the Essence All That Greys Palette? 

Lots of Love
