Estee Lauder Cyber Lilac Pure Color Gelee Powder Eyeshadow

Estee Lauder Cyber Lilac Pure Color Gelee Powder Eyeshadow ($24.00 for 0.03 oz.) is a medium-dark red-toned purple with a silvered shimmer-sheen. It delivers good color payoff both wet and dry, and when it is applied wet, the metallic finish comes through more. Urban Decay Rockstar is less shimmered, so it looks darker. Bare Escentuals Encore is also similar.

I liked this one better than Cyber Green, because the texture was softer and smoother, even when applied dry. Still, the texture is like a cross of “baked” eyeshadows (like MAC Mineralize Eyeshadows) and a regular powder, but infinitely better than baked products, because it retains the vibrancy in color when it is applied damp–it doesn’t dry down to something faded. Alone, it wears about six hours without any issues when it is applied dry, and when it is applied wet, I was able to get to eight hours without issues.

These are definitely worth checking out, just because the formula feels a little different than other eyeshadows I've come across. I like that they can be used wet or dry, but you can still get good color payoff if you use it dry and you don't lose vibrancy when you use it wet.

  1. Kinda a bit similar to Chanel Illusoire when the Chanel one is applied in layers.

  2. This looks absolutely stunning in both the pan and in the swatch! So pretty!

  3. I wanted to get this so bad, but I thought about it and decided against… 24$ for a single eyeshadow is kinda expensive to my taste. :(

    Wow this color is beautiful! I am a big fan of Estee Lauder eyeshadows, but I don’t think anyone gives them enough credit. I will definitely have to check this out.

    Loving this! This is an absolute must have for me so if I see it in store I will defiently buy. I don’t normally look even at estee lauder counters after they discontinued my favorite purple eye shadow but seeing this I will start looking at the brand again.

    **alert**alert**
    sucker for purples says: “gorgeousssssss”…I so want this right now…!!!! *drooling*

  13. This color is so dynamic! I swatched these at my local counter, honestly I’m not sure how the texture is a revolutionary difference from some of the “creamier” powder shadows we’ve seen before. Oh well, I think it’s really pretty in the pan, and I hope Estee Lauder continues adding colors to this line!

  14. Giselle

    i would love to see an eye look using this!

  15. Blue

    I’m… I’m in love! I must have it! I’ve been looking for a purple eyeshadow that I could use on a daily basis without it being too much, and this just might be it! Not to mention, the formula sounds super cool to use, and I just can’t stop staring at how gorgeous and shiny it looks…! Will you be reviewing the other shades, as well, Christine?
