Boho Rose

Estee Lauder Boho Rose Pure Color Envy Luxe Eyeshadow Quad (Refill) ($44.00 for 0.21 oz.) includes three shimmery shades paired with a very light matte eyeshadow. The eyeshadows were rather powdery, thin, and more prone to sheering out and/or having fallout, and then none of them lasted that long!

Boho Rose #1

Boho Rose #1 is a darker, coral-red with subtle, warm pink shimmer that gave it a more frosted finish.

  • Mostly opaque coverage
  • More loosely-pressed, somewhat powdery
  • Applied somewhat unevenly, prone to fallout
  • Shorter-wearing (6 hours before fading)

Formula Overview

-

The formula is supposed to be "highly pigmented" with "stay-true color" that won't smudge, crease, or settle into fine lines and doesn't "flake or dust onto face." The quality of the more matte shades was typically higher than the shimmer shades, but all of the finishes seeme to be particularly short-wearing and made it seem like my lids "ate" the eyeshadows quite quickly.

Some of the shimmers were drier and thinner, which resulted in uneven application and some fallout, particularly with the more sparkly shades. The matte eyeshadows were more pigmented and smoother on average but still were on the thinner side with slight to moderate powderiness, which resulted in light fallout and/or the color sheering out too readily on bare skin.

Shaking my head in dismay. I’d not purchase this quad even if it were an A because 3 of the 4 colours aren’t appealing or flattering for me. I like that brown shadow (which scored more respectably) but not enough to purchase such a naff item. How is it the company was able to make those spectacular shadows in the Estee Edit palette but can’t seem to manage it now, with a more big ticket price tag item?

This is range of eyeshadow quads is definitely going on the Most Disappointed List for the end of the year. Considering how much the brand charges for this woeful quad, they should hang their heads in shame.
What a dud set of purchases for you Christine! Give me SG anyday…

I have this palette and I agree with the review completely. So disappointing. I was looking forward to this palette so much and it was always sold out at the counter; now I wish I had never requested it.
