Estee Lauder Pure Colour Gelee Powder Shadows

I heart Estee Lauder very much, I also heart anything that’s a ‘gel’ texture – so when I heard there was an Estee Lauder Gelee Powder shadow, that’s meant to be a cross between gel, powder and liquid… I was curious to see what they would be like…

The packaging is the same as the normal single shadows – but when you open them up you can see the difference in the pan – they are like a silky looking wave of shimmering metallic shadow.

I love how the shadows look in the pan, they look almost too pretty to touch.. but not quite too pretty to play with! The colours that caught my attention the most were Cyber Copper (a bronzey-brown), Cyber Green (a deep green-black shade, with some shimmer) and Cyber Pink (a pale pink with silvery shimmer).

It’s hard to describe the texture of the shadows – they don’t feel truly like gel or cream shadows – but they do feel something like super-super fine shadow that it milled so finely that it feels like it’s a liquid. It does have a slightly liquid feel to it, but it’s not a true liquid. If that makes sense.

There’s a bit of a difference between the shadows with the fine glitter in them – the cyber copper (bronzy/brown) felt the smoothest and this was the one without glitter in it. The cyber green shade comes out almost black-green with a mixture of bronze and gold glitters.

The cyber copper shade is my favourite of the three I’ve been playing with, definitely as personal choice. But all three of the shades are really impressive pigment and texture wise – I think Cyber Green would make a gorgeous smudged smokey eye and cyber pink is lovely for highlighting or day to day.

The Pure Colour Gelee Eyeshadows aren’t fully on the website yet, but they are on the coming soon page… and you can sign up to be notified for when they are available.

    Yes Cyber green does look lovely, I find Estee Lauder eyeshadows are generally good texture wise, very soft & glide easily to blend.

    Nice post. Makes me want to buy one in cyber green as I am particularly fond of that color. I am anticipating the release of Estee Lauder’s Pure Colour Gelee Powder Shadows. I may wear it during Friday date nights with my husband as I have no other occasion to attend to that merits wearing make up. Thanks for letting me know about this product.
