Estee Lauder Spring 2011: Untamed Violet

Estee Lauder Untamed Violet Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a new and limited edition shade of cool-toned violet with soft flecks of gold shimmer. It is part of Estee Lauder’s Wild Violet collection for spring. The shade itself should suit cool skin tones with ease, and warmer skin tones can make it work by pairing it with warmer shades.

my thoughts on the formula: Pure Color Eyeshadow is very soft and smooth but not powdery and has no fall out. With a nice level of pigmentation, the shadow is easy to work with.

Estee Lauder Pure Color Eyeshadow: Tempting Mocha

Estee Lauder Tempting Mocha Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a soft taupe with a satin finish.  It has a touch of mauve to it, but it has that muted, grayish brown that makes it more taupe than anything else.  It’s soft, silky, and applies and blends with ease.  The color itself is a lighter taupe, which makes it a nice shade for everyday contouring of the lid.

FINAL THOUGHTS: This would be a flattering shade on cooler skin tones in particular, as it certainly leans on the cool side.  I also see this working well on even ultra pale skin tones, because it is softer.

Estee Lauder Pure Color Eyeshadow: Twilight Rose

Estee Lauder Twilight Rose Pure Color Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a softened pale pink-peach with a frosted shimmer. Estee Lauder describes this shade as a “cool light pink,” and it has a satin finish, which is means it has a “soft, lustrous sheen.” Nothing about this seems cool-toned, and the pink is quite subtle. It reads rather peach in the pan and still leans that way when swatched.

I actually think this would work really well as a cheek highlighter–I initially thought it was a blusher when I first swatched it! Similarly, it would be a nice all-over color on the lid to brighten up the eyes. I think it may be on the frostier side for a brow highlight, but it could work; it would depend more on personal preferences. It has a nice, smooth texture, but this is definitely a softer and sheerer color, so I don’t know if I’d call it a rich shade.

RECOMMENDATION: For quick looks, this could make a really nice lid color — and double as a cheek highlighter!
