My Experience with Estee Lauder Pure Color EyeShadow (18) Deluxe EyeShadow Compact.

I am not a big fan of using eyeshadows, but do enjoy using them on special occasions. This Estee Lauder eyeshadow palette has an all gold, mirror packaging (this is why the pictures are such) which makes it look so luxurious and classy. It comes with a huge zoom-in mirror which is helpful to do your full face of makeup. It also has 2 one-sided sponge applicators that are not as bad as they normally are in other palettes. The shades/colours are mentioned on the back side of the palette – enabling me to know which shade is being used. It contains 0.01 OZ or 0.45 grams of each shade.

It has shades going from light champagnes, to n*des and browns, to darker colour like a khaki, plums and purples. I can achieve any look using just 1 palette. I have done looks from basic 1 eye shadow look to a smoky eye look using this palette solely. The shades selected for this palette are great and every shade would work well with any other shade in the palette. The selection of shades contains a perfect mixture of Mattes, Satins and Shimmers. The shimmer shades have very tiny particles of shimmer without any fallout. However the matte shades have some fallout, so I would recommend applying your face makeup after eye.

All the colours in the palette are super buttery and not chalky whatsoever. However, I feel that the Shimmers are the most buttery ones. The shades are very true to their pan shades and are super pigmented. I think the palette would suit every skin tone and eye colour. The eyeshadows have a wonderful staying power and do not crease at all. But, also they are easy to remove with only water and a face wash.
