Review: Essence Stay All Day Long Lasting Cream Eye Shadow from Watson’s

Hi Glamifys,

Essence is an affordable drugstore makeup which is available at selected Watsons in Singapore such as Ngee Ann City, Lucky Plaza, Plaza Singapura (new extension), Sun Plaza, Parkway Parade, IMM, Lot 1, Anchor Point, Rivervale Mall, Park Lane, Bedok Central, Beauty World Centre and SMU.


Been meaning to try their stuff but didn’t find time to head to either of the stores above.

Went by Marina Square Watsons today and saw a pack of 3 cream eyeshadows by them. I purchased the set for SGD 9.90. Apparently it was packed for a member sale on the 27th of March 2013 and the excess was still available at the Marina Square branch.

The “STAY ALL DAY LONG LASTING EYESHADOWS” come in a plastic jar which reminds me of a MAC paintpot (although its slightly smaller in size). Each jar contains 5.5g or 0.19 oz of product, lasts 12 months once opened and is made in Germany.

The pack of 3 had really pretty colours:

JIM-ME BLUE 07 : purplish blue/ a cross beauty baby and navy blue



CAMP ROCK 05 : gun metal/dark silver which swatches as light grey or silver



THE MAGIC MUST GO ON 08 : dark violet/ royal purple with magenta flecks of glitter







The product claims ” The highly pigmented colours of the stay all day long lasting eyeshadow give your eye make-up an exciting look with metallic effects. The creamy texture is especially colorfast & wont settle in the crease of your eyelids”

You would need to apply a thin layer and let it set for about 1 minute. You could either use this as a base which would help make your powder eyeshadow be more intense and crease less.

Or you could apply another layer to use the product on its own. The pigmentation is great if applied with 2 layers ensuring that each layer sets before applying the next.

As a base, I found that my eyeshadows did not crease and powder eyeshadow lasted longer. It’s a really affordable alternative to Makeup Forever aqua creams which go at about SGD 40 each.

Will definitely check out the rest of the cream eyeshadows when I pop by Ngee Ann City later this week.

This is such a great find! Loves~
