Estee Lauder are really stepping up their game this fall with their brand new Pure Color Envy Sculpting Eyeshadow Palettes. Available in 12 different colour combinations, the palettes are designed to be used wet or dry depending on your desired intensity, and they are drop-dead gorgeous – prepare for quite a few photos!
The palettes come in the most glamorous of packaging. The cases are similar to the the Color Envy lipsticks – think heavy navy metal with a golden trim. It feels pleasingly heavy to hold and it clicks shut with a satisfying snap. The large mirror in the lid is perfect for touch ups. I think that Provocative Petal is one of the more day-appropriate color-ways. There is a matte, creamy shell pink, a warmer dusky pink, a cool creamy taupe, a beautifully rich chocolate with a shimmery champagne to finish everything off. It’s really an incredible natural palette.
For day I run a little of the shell pink under my brow bone, pat a little of the taupe on my lids and lightly line with the chocolate. It’s perfectly simple and polished, and I obsessed with the texture of the shadows. They feel soft and buttery to the touch, give incredible colour payoff, and they don’t fade out during the day.
For evening I warm my look up by apply a little of the dusky pink in my crease, lining my eyes with the chocolate (dampened) and then I pat a little of the shimmer on my inner eyes.
There really is nothing not to like about the palette – from the fancy packaging to the dreamy eyeshadows, you’ve got to check these out!
