Estee Lauder Pure Color Eye Shadow Palette

Hi girls, it's been a while since I made a review post because of the crazy schedule I've had the past few months. But now, I'm back to do a review post on the Estee Lauder Pure Color Eyeshadow Palette. This is a gift from my bf from his recent visit back here in Manila. This was part of the huge loot he surprised me with. :) I told him I wanted make up and uhhh he got me tons it was overwhelming! :)

Anyway, back to the Estee Lauder palette. This palette is part of their Travel Exclusives, you know the ones you buy on the plane or at the duty free airport before boarding your plane (even at the airport he was buying me make up hehe). Personally I love looking through the Airplane magazine to check out their make up exclusives and want to buy them just for the sake of buying them. Hehe

Estimate Price: Around $59 USD

The Palette has 9 individual eye shadows all with a pearl/frost finish. It comes in a durable plastic case with a clear cover to easily identify the colors included. When you open the lid of the palette, there are two plastic protective cases over the eye shadows so that they remain unscratched and untouched until the buyer uses them. This palette also comes with two sponge applicators which for sanitary reasons I suggest not using. The size of each individual shadow is about the same size of a 25 centavo coin (as seen below).


Moving forward are the names of each shadow:

Top Row from l-r:
Cinnamon, Pink Quartz, Tea Biscuit

Middle Row from l-r:
Midnight, Pink Ice, Ginger Drop

Bottom Row from l-r:
Lilac, Amethyst, Camouflage


Here are the swatches of each color applied on hand without any primer:

Top Row from l-r:
Cinnamon, Pink Quartz, Tea Biscuit

Middle Row from l-r:
Midnight, Pink Ice, Ginger Drop

Bottom Row from l-r:
Lilac, Amethyst, Camouflage


Do you see how pigmented the shadows are? :) I was really impressed at how they looked after being swatched since I didn't expect that they would be this pigmented. This palette is worth getting since I see that all the colors on it are usable. I really love the LILAC color. You can't really see it on the image but when it is reflected on natural lighting, I love the effect it is giving with its pearl finish. This palette is definitely worth it.

The only con I see with this palette is that it may not be readily available anywhere since it is a Travel Exclusive. But I do suggest if you will be flying out anytime soon or have family flying to grab a hold of this set. The price may be a little steep but I assure you that it is worth the 9 shadows you will be getting! :)

Overall I am very happy with this palette, I can definitely use these colors and I'm glad that I have new colors to play with too! :)


Toodles! :)

  4. Are you carrying a risky credit record and some lenders have refused you a new loan? do not panic if you need the monetary help for urgency as you can rely on small loans without credit checks.
