Essence 'All About Nude 01' palette

I'm having such a love affair with Essence at the moment so when I saw that they do palettes, I just had to snap this one up.

The palette consists of six shadows ranging from a cream, which is perfect for highlighting, to a crease worthy plum.
I tried swatching these colours but the camera was not doing them justice. For some reason they look much more pigmented on the eyes.

One thing that I still can't get my head around is the price of Essence products. This palette is only £3.50(!) which for six shades of this quality is an absolute bargain.

Despite the low price, these shadows are long wearing. My favourite combination is the top middle shade all over the lid and the bottom right shade through the crease. I haven't worn these with a primer yet but, even without, I get at least 6 hours from these without fading.

This is so small and compact that it is perfect for travelling or even just keeping in your bag for touch ups. You could even use the two on the left of the palette as highlight shades to save room in your makeup bag.

Have you tried any Essence eye shadows? If not, why not?
