Estee Lauder x Victoria Beckham Eye Palette

Estee Lauder x Victoria Beckham Eye Palette ($95.00 for 0.25 oz.) contains six, shimmery eyeshadows that feature a wet/dry powder formula. I think if you like more pigmented eyeshadows that are blendable and wear well, you will enjoy this palette. That being said, there was not much of a difference between wet and dry for most shades; a couple of shades became more metallic and one had better color payoff applied damp. The formula was soft, smooth, and finely-milled and felt almost velvety to the touch, as it didn’t kick up powder but wasn’t really dense or cream-like either.

The compact itself has heft and has a very solid clasp. The black-hued portion is not plastic, and it has a softer, slightly plush feel–like leather (or pleather), but I’m not certain if it’s real leather or not, and it is carried through all of the collection’s compact products.

Fired Sapphire is a bright, medium blue with cooler undertones and a frosted finish. Applied dry, it was mostly opaque and wasn’t as pearlized as it was when it was applied damp, where the shimmer was more noticeable and gave the color a brighter look overall (and it was totally opaque). The consistency was soft, blendable, and silky, so it was easy to work with on bare skin and did not need a primer to perform well at all! This shade wore well for eight and a half hours before fading on me. KKW Beauty Libra (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar).

Blonde Cumin is a light-medium gold with warm, brown undertones and a soft, frosted finish. It was richly pigmented both applied dry and damp, while damp application made the shimmer appear smoother and more reflective. The texture was soft, smooth, and easy to work with on the lid as the color blended out easily without losing its intensity. On me, it wore for eight hours before I noticed subtle fading.

Metal Saffron is a medium, golden brown with warm, yellow undertones and a golden bronze shimmer. It had opaque color payoff both wet and dry, while the damp application was slightly smoother and more reflective. The texture was silky, smooth, and finely-milled, but it wasn’t powdery or dusty, so it adhered beautifully to bare skin and I had no trouble diffusing and blending out the edges.

Burnished Sage is a medium-dark forest green with subtle, warm undertones and a soft, frosted finish. Again, the color payoff was the same regardless of application method–totally opaque–which isn’t as described but I expect that to be welcomed by most. The texture was soft, just a smidgen dusty, but it applied well to the lid without sheering out or becoming patchy when blended. It wore well for almost nine hours before I saw signs of fading.

Gray Amber is a dark, charcoal gray with subtle, neutral-to-warm undertones and a soft, satiny shimmer. It was semi-opaque and appeared warmer and lighter when applied dry, while the damp application yielded opaque coverage that was much more intense and appeared deeper in overall color. The texture was soft, lightly dusty but not prone to sheering out or fading over time, as it still wore for a solid eight hours before I detected changes in intensity. MAC Nighttrain (LE, $17.00) is lighter (95% similar). Chanel Tisse Paris #4 (P, ) is lighter (95% similar). Viseart Diane (P, ) is lighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Caviar (LE, $45.00) is glossier (95% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Black Nutmeg is a dark, reddish brown with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. When I applied it dry, it appeared less intense and a little lighter than when I applied it damp, though the coverage was opaque applied both wet and dry. The powder had a soft, smooth, and silky texture that wasn’t powdery or dusty. It adhered well to bare skin and blended out with ease, and it stayed on well for eight and a half hours.
