Estee Lauder Pure Color Five Color EyeShadow Palette Topaz Mosaic Review and Swatches

This is a palette from Estee Lauder’s Spring 2012 makeup collection called Topaz Mosaic which I’ve got as a Birthday present from a friend.

This is actually a really nice  warm toned palette for creating every day looks. It originally caught my attention because these are not the most boring neutrals.

You get five shades inside:

  • light matte yellow in the centre
  • two champagne shades, one is warmer and with glitter
  • warm metallic orange
  • warm reddish brown which is

Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place ShadowCreme in Precious Jade and Silver Leaf Review and Swatches

I LOVE cream eye shadows and I can never have enough!  I’ve realized that I never wrote about the Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place ShadowCreme eye shadows which I got a long time ago, although I promised to. So here we go!

First of all I have to say that I really love that EL has  a lot of different shades so everyone can pick something according to their taste.  So I’ve picked up 2 shades:  light green and silvery-grey.

This is how the design looks like:

The shadows I’ve picked are called Precious Jade and Silver Leaf (I am afraid it was a LE). I have to say that both colours are really beautiful.  This is how is how they look like in the jar.

I like these shadows as well as I like everything from the Double Wear series from Estee Lauder (review and swatches of the foundation). Although these are not my most favourite cream eye shadows, they are great!

Lips of The Day: Estee Lauder Long Lasting Lipstick in Nectarine

I think that Estee Lauder’s Pure Color Long Lasting Lipstick in Nectarine is perfect shade for summer (which is almost gone) and fall as well.

It’s a beautiful warm  reddish shade of tangerine (does it make sense to you? I am not really good at describing colours) with a hint of shimmer .

It gives a full coverage and opaque. Plus doesn’t dry the lips out, EL says that it’s with Vitamins C and E plus natural moisturizers.

I also find that it stays on the lips for quite a long time. Moreover, I  love the scent of this lipstick and it really reminds me of a nectarine.

Overall, I am happy that I got this lipstick  and, although now I love matte shades, this one is a good alternative to all matte corals that I have.

By the way, I bought quite a few Estee Lauder products in winter and now I’ve finally made some photos to show you and tell  you my impression.

The price is £17.00 or $22 if you are from the US.
