Essence Eye Sorbet | Cosmetic review

I am finally back at home with proper internet access and I'm kicking the week off with a product review. A new Essence product for us beauties to play with! The new "eye sorbet" can be described as a mousse like gel with insane shimmer. I purchased this shade, 05 Illuminating Hazelnut, at Dis-Chem for R36.95.

This eye sorbet adds the most beautiful shimmer to your eyes. It gives the eye a majestic "fantasy" feel which can be wearable during the day or out at night.

I like to apply a thin layer of the eye sorbet when doing my makeup because it dries fast and adds just the right amount of shimmer to enhance my eyes. I have found that if you apply a thicker layer, it looks stunning but it is more likely to smudge and transfer onto your upper eyelid when you blink. I also applied my essence liquid liner pen which smudged within 15 min due to the watery consistency of the eye sorbet.

Overall this is a fun new Essence product which gives your eyes a beautiful shimmer. I do suggest applying a very thin layer to your eyes with your finger (the gel wont work well with makeup brushes) and if you are doing a cats eye with an eyeliner pen rather use a shimmery dry eye shadow then the eye sorbet.

If you have tried any of the other eye sorbet shades, tweet me (@MsClairabella) some swatch pictures :)
