Estée Lauder Pure Color Gelée Powder Eyeshaow

Hi Guys, 
I picked up my first Estée Lauder product recently in Debenhams and wanted to share it with you. I have been eyeing up Double Wear foundation for ages but settled on this beautiful metallic purple eyeshadow. I think it's time to use the foundation I already have before buying another. 

The eyeshadow itself comes in this stylish thick plastic container with a shiny gold lid and handy mirror. The packaging is quite sizeable so you wouldn't want to have to carry around too many shades with you. But I love it all the same. I chose the shade 03 Cyber Lilac because I am a sucker for the colour purple although I find it difficult to wear at my age. It set me back €24.40 which is probably the most expensive single eyeshadow I own. Oh Gem, why didn't you at least invest in a colour you would wear regularly?? Silly me. I did however get .03oz or 9g of product for this price tag and it seems a little goes a long way. 

It is the world's first ever tri-blend formula eyeshadow - it's gel, liquid and powder all in one. It feels powdery to the touch.The shadow can be used wet or dry for different looks and effects. It is crazily pigmented and the metallic finish is amazing!! The colour pay off is so intense, definitely not a day time shadow for this lady. I found that there was no fallout under my eyes and its lasting power is excellent. The shadow was easy to apply and didn't need a primer. It also blended very well.

There were only 6 shades in my local Debenhams but I am pretty sure there are loads more. I would love a neutral shade because I definitely think these eyeshadows are excellent value for money. Very pricey, for my budget at least, but one or two more would satisfy me.

Have you tried any of these shadows? What do you think of them? Also any feedback or advice about Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation would be greatly appreciated. Thanks ladies.

Thanks for stopping by again,

With love,

Gem xx
