Essence Cosmetics: All About Candies Eyeshadow Palette and Tutorial

Yesterday, I reviewed All about Paradise from Essence Cosmetics and today is "all about Candies". 
These beautifully pigmented pastel shadows are shimmery with a buttery texture. 
All about Candies can be worn as a base or as a wash of color to create soft eye looks.

The 6 pastel colors included are yellow, pink, lilac, peach, blue and a mint green.

Here are the swatches! 
The one on the right is searched with primer making them pop more and pigmented.

When I saw All about Candies, it reminded me of the Sigma Creme de Couture Palette. And I said to myself "I'll grab All about Candies to act as a base for the Sigma ones. The two are pictured below.

So before using them as bases, I tried them as straight shadows with only primer. 
I must say I was a little disappointed with the way it showed on my eyes.
They creased on me in the hot sun and they looked very sheer.
But when I layered the sigma ones on top they looked very nice.
I do think nextime, I should add a sticky base like a NXY jumbo pencil in milk so they can show up more when I apply them alone.

So, here's an example on how they showed up layered with the Creme De Couture.
My favorite in the essence palette is the blue shadow.
Oops, I didn't wear mascara here or a lip product. Lol
But these are definately pastels that will brighten your eyes and give you a bright eyed awaken fresh look.

Now, here's a YouTube tutorial from Emma Norggard I found that can give you an idea if you want to try them yourself for $4.99 at Ulta.

 Most of these video tutorials are from over seas because Essence Cosmetics is from Germany and they are branched out in Europe, Canada, and North America.
