Estee Lauder Pure Color Five Color Eyeshadow Palette in 40 Batik Sun* | £36 | Harrods


Isn't Estee Lauder just the most beautifully packaged brand? Everything about it just boasts luxury... From the gorgeous navy blue boxing, to the shiny golden casing, embellished with the "EL" logo... I love it already! This is the Estee Lauder Pure Color Five Color Eyeshadow Palette in 40 Batik Sun which was released back in 2013 as part of the Estee Lauder Bronzed Goddess Collection. This compact palette contains 5 well selected and complementary shades to help you create a bold and eye catching summer look, along with 2 double ended applicators, 3 of which are foam/sponge and the fourth is a brush. There is also a handy mirror on the inside of the palette. All this makes it totally ideal for travelling or even just to carry in your handbag to touch up your makeup, midway through the day.

The eye shadows are, as expected, amazing quality. They have a super soft texture and apply smoothly and tug-free to the eyes, I didn't get any fall out when applying either, which is always a good thing! The colour pay off is absolutely perfect - what you see in the palette is what you get, as you can see from the swatches. What I love about this palette is that you can use some of the colours to create a natural, neutral and glowing look, and then you can add a splash of colour with the orange or turquoise too! The only bad thing I have to mention is that on the back of the palette, only the lightest shade is described as metallic/shimmer, when in fact, all five shades are shimmery! Not that this is disappointing in any way, its just that the description on their own packaging is incorrect.

Although I'd have to say this palette is definitely more suited to deeper or even dark skin tones, or if you have a lovely summer tan, and most of us paler-skinned ladies would struggle to use the brighter colours in the palette, the neutrals are ideal for every day looks! For instance, Shade 1(light champagne) makes for a fabulous highlighter! Then Shade 3(gold) would make a good "all over lid" base colour, before applying shade 5 (deep brown) in the creases and along the lash line to define. If you're feeling braver, why not try out Shade 2(bronze/orange) and Shade 4(deep turquoise) to re-create this bronzed goddess look (model is Hilary Rhoda for Estee Lauder).

I am so lucky to have this palette added to my collection, and although this would normally be out of my price range I will bear in mind that Estee Lauder is a higher end beauty brand and I would totally recommend it based on quality, appearance, finish and the versatility of looks you could create with this little gem!
