Estee Lauder Cyber Green Pure Color Gelee Powder Eyeshadow

Estee Lauder Cyber Green Pure Color Gelee Powder Eyeshadow ($24.00 for 0.03 oz.) is a deep, dark blackened-brown olive green with forest green and olive green micro-shimmer. It’s blacker and sootier when it’s applied dry, and it takes on a more metallic finish with a stronger green tone when it is applied wet. The pigmentation is good dry but great wet. I couldn’t think of a dupe for it–it’s really, really dark but not quite black. Milani Melange is the closest, but it is is more like a blackened-brown with gold shimmer, rather than green. Always a bonus when I can’t think of a dupe!

Estee Lauder’s new Pure Color Gelee Powder Eyeshadows are a highly metallic eyeshadow that fan be used wet or dry. It’s a “tri-blend” formula that’s gel, powder, and liquid all-in-one. It’s also supposed to be high in pigmentation, blend easily, and long-lasting without fading. The powder is soft, almost powdery, and feels very, very dry in a way. Like some eyeshadows are soft and buttery and more like a cream (but still a powder), but this feels almost dry, even though it’s not stiff or chalky. The texture is definitely interesting–it reminded me of baked/mineralize eyeshadows, actually, except super compacted.

I find it’s a little powdery when it’s used dry, so I prefer to use it wet to minimize fall out (if you use it dry, make sure to tap your brush handle against your fore arm to loosen excess powder). I’ve used it both ways, though, without a primer, and the results have been good. I find it wears dry for six hours well, but it looks a bit faded by eight hours. When I wore it wet (again, without primer or a base!), it lasted longer–eight hours and then some subtle fading after ten hours.

Though these are listed as 0.03 oz. a pop, it doesn’t seem that small in the pan. It seems about the same as your average eyeshadow or slightly bigger. You don’t need a lot of product to achieve opaque color either, so I wouldn’t be overly concerned with it running out quickly.

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities!

Project 10 Pan is lol! I figure I have another 6 months (at least) to go before I can buy another makeup item. I usually buy pretty much what I want when it comes to makeup so this sort of ‘restriction’ is a first for me. Maybe the bf can pick this up as a stocking stuffer lol.

I just used this eyeshadow on the lids (wet) and the color was gorgeous; paired it with a Dior mustard-gold sheer wash. I rarely buy Esteee Lauder shadows but this one was a must-have for me. A damp stiff brush worked well. I just blended it upward into the crease and used a q-tip to blend. No fallout with that method. With this color, any fallout would be an awful mess to clean up!

Wow this looks gorgeous! This color is right up my alley. I definitely want to pick up, maybe during the week next week when black friday/weekend madness eases up!

I’m going to purchase all of these, I’ve seen other colors swatched and they are all amazing! I’ve never requested an eye look but I sure would love to see this on you! Tom Pecheaux had brought such interesting products to EL this past year, I can’t wait to see what else he has in store next year.

I’m wearing this today actually, I really like it and it’s one of the few instances where I prefer to apply it using the included sponge-tip applicator rather than with a brush (and I like to apply it dry). I like how it sheers out really easily to make a smokey eye.

Ohh, I’m such a sucker for these blackish gold colors. I have the Milani Melange, too. I’m still so sad about the Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Intense shadow in #14. I want it sooo badly.

This colour is fantastic! Estee Lauder sure has changed their image in the last couple of years. When I look at the colour it just doesn’t scream “lauder!

i bought this last week and am gonna return it i was expecting a nice forest green and its really more on the black side, i didnt pay $24 for a black eyeshadow ya know =/ also i already own two dupes for this! from mac’s tartan tale collection the family crest pigment, and also recently loreal came out with a project runway collection i bought the neutral eyeshadow quad called amazons blaze or something and the dark shade in there is EXACTLY like cyber green i just swatched both of them side by side, the loreal one has more gold pearl in it (which i like)

This finally landed at my local counter and I got 2 and intend to go back and get all ASAP. Because of your review I got the 2 and because I used them to create an eye as soon as I got home and I (kid you not!) was stunned at the properties and color of this formulation and my 16 yr old daughter put it on right after me and not only say WHOA very loudly but also squealed loudly haha, these are amazing! Love, love love!
