Solar Crush

Estee Lauder Solar Crush Illuminating Powder Gelee ($47.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a medium, coppery bronze with warm undertones and a golden, metallic sheen. The pigmentation was opaque in a single layer, though the denser, smooth texture made it easier to just pick up less (with a feathery brush or lighter hand). The highlighter applied evenly to bare skin and blended out with ease. It sat well on my skin and didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. This shade lasted well for eight and a half hours on me before fading slightyl.

Heat Wave

Estee Lauder Heat Wave Illuminating Powder Gelee ($47.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a light-medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a metallic sheen. It had a smooth, dense consistency that felt firmer but not in a stiff way, though you’ll want to use a moderately dense highlighting brush to achieve even application as I found very feathery brushes did not pick up product as well. (I find that this type of formula, which feels like a smoother, more refined baked powder, often describe as a hybrid formula, has this denseness/firmness.) The highlighter blended out nicely and didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture while still adding a lot of shine. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading noticeably. This shade’s “pink” rings seemed to dissipate after a use (swatched, applied, and tested after removing possible overlay/overspray).

Mirage

Estee Lauder Mirage Illuminating Powder Gelee ($47.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a medium copper with warm, rosy undertones and a metallic sheen. It had rich color payoff with a smooth, moderately dense consistency that didn’t have any excess powderiness in the pan but was still blendable and easy to work with on my skin. The finish was more metallic and emphasized my skin’s texture slightly. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading a bit. In the past, this formula hasn’t been scented, but this has the Bronze Goddess scent in it.

Poesie (215)

Estee Lauder Poesie (215) Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium pink with warm undertones and a shiny, cream finish. It had rich color coverage that applied smoothly and evenly across my lips without tugging on them during application. The texture was lightweight, creamy enough to be comfortable and easy to work with, but it adhered well and did not slide around over the five hours it lasted for. The formula kept my lips hydrated over time.

Formula Overview

$32.00/0.12 oz. - $266.67 Per Ounce

The Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick formula is supposed to have “high-intensity color” that hydrate lips with six-hour wear. It’s one of my favorite formulas, as the majority of the shades are creamy, smooth, pigmented, hydrating, and long-wearing (four to seven hours). They are vanilla-scented but have no discernible taste.

Blonde Gold

Estee Lauder Blonde Gold Eye Metals ($45.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a light gold with moderate, warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. For swatching purposes, I tried it dry as well as damp, but it was fairly pigmented even without the use of a dampened brush. The texture was smooth, dense, and more-cream like, which helped the eyeshadow stay together on the lid and have minimal fallout over time. The eyeshadow was blendable, though there were bits of sparkle that came away from the area when I was blending it out. It wore well for six and a half hours before creasing on me.

Formula Overview

$45.00/0.10 oz. - $450.00 Per Ounce

It is supposed to be a “rich color powder eyeshadow” that is “densely pigmented” that can be worn alone or layered. There are two shades in the collection, and they performed similarly, though Bitter Clove is a bit richer overall and longer wearing. They were nicely pigmented with very dense, almost cream-like textures that blended out easily on the lid and adhered to bare lids. I found that they were prone to creasing within six hours of wear, but the wear time improved to eight hours (before creasing) over primer, so primer helped but ultimately, this was not an ultra long-wearing formula. I did not experience much fall out, though, despite the high sparkle content in Bitter Clove (Charred Emerald has more of a pearly sheen). I liked them, but at the price point, it’s definitely a lot for a single eyeshadow, so they’re not going to be worth it for everyone.

Noir Vanille

Estee Lauder Noir Vanille Victoria Beckham Eye Duo ($60.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a basic set of shades featuring a medium beige and a dark black both with more matte finishes.  Noir proved more difficult to apply and blend out, and I suspect that many will prefer a black eyeshadow that’s more forgiving–one that can be used intensely but also more gradually–and Noir was not that.  Vanille was much easier to use but easily duped with a myriad of brands and shades given it is a basic neutral color (nothing wrong with that but lots of competition this color family).

The duo contains a bit less than the average full-sized eyeshadow (0.05 oz. and these are 0.03 oz. each), despite the compact being more substantial in size.  I also had to be careful as the mirror was so heavy that the palette would not stay flat on the table unless I had the mirror angled slightly over the eyeshadow pans to keep it from tipping.
