I can’t deny my love of a good palette, it would take something special to beat the ‘Urban Decay Naked Palette’. But I think this offering from the Estee Lauder Spring Collection might just be a contender, no it may not have the covering all bases appeal of the naked palette, but for portability and wearable colours – I love the shades in this. Brown and bronze with a deep blue for a bit of colour/smokiness.
The pale eye shadow shade is a lovely highlight. The bronze as a lovely shadow and the darker brown/bronze for definition. The dark blue is good for an extra bit of defining and flattering for most eye colours. The pigmentation and colour pay off is decent, but not too intense.
The deep purple/blue is definitely the most pigmented of the palette and very, very impressive. I used this shade as a liner colour and really found it made my blue eyes ‘pop’. Love it.
There is also a range of lip colours being released as part of the collection, but these deserve a blog post all of their own, so more on these at a later date.
This palette costs £34 and will be available at Estee Lauder counters nationwide.
