Essence: Floral Grunge Eyeshadow Quattro

Hello my loves,

As always Essence brought out an limited edition this month; Floral Grunge. The last couple of limited edition were a bit disappointing, this one however is pretty cool.
Essence combined two spring trends together: Floral and grunge. Two things I really like. I love the sweet colors of the floral trend and the raw edge from the grunge trend. They even brought out a dip-dye-powder. I bought the darker eyeshadow-quattro and the mint-colored nailpolish. Today I will review the eyeshadow-quattro for you.
This collection has two quattro's. A floral quattro and grunge quattro called; '01 Eye Like Flowers' and '02 Eye Like Grunge'. I bought the grunge version because these colors appealed more to me (the other one has orange and pink). This palette has dark mossy colors that fit the grunge trend perfectly.
The packaging is the same as the other quattro's in the regular essence collection. Only the background is now black instead of silver. Also is the name of the brand pressed into the packaging this makes it a bit more chic-looking.
The quattro holds 4 shadows (no shit it's a quattro). A matte dark grey, shimmery mossy green, a anthracite matte and a shimmery purple. I'm not very impressed by the pigmentation. It's nice but not very spectacular.
 The quality however is nice, the shadows don't crumble and stay nicely packed together in the pan.

Products I used:
Essence: Floral Grunge: 022 Eye Like Grunge
Catrice: Long Lasting Eye Pencil: 070 Blue Berrymore (review)
Rimmel: Sexy Curves: Intense Black

I  made a spring look with this palette, it's therefore a spring collection. I used the purple in the first half of my eyelid. The mossy color in my crease and the dark-grey as a liner. A purple liner I used to line my eyes,  lick of mascara and you're finished. 

I like this palette but it's not my favorite. You can make a pretty smokey look that looks very natural with this quattro. I reminds my of a fall forest, a bit weird for a spring palette, it's however very pretty. 
You can buy this palette only this month for 2,99.
Later this week I will share the swatch of the mint nailpolish with you.
