(Estee Lauder Batik Sun Palette – £35*)
Another absolute beauty from Estee Lauder. In fact these are the first Estee Lauder eyeshadows I have tried and I really am so impressed. Hopefully from the image you can see how beautifully the shades blended together on the eyes. For this look I used four of the shades excluding the beautiful bright green, although I think this would look gorgeous swept along the eyeline with a wet pencil brush. Using the lightest shade in the inner corner, working the light gold over the lid and the dark brown to the outer corner. I then blended the burned copper through the outer corner to give an extra dimension and I can’t tell you how much I loved it. There is something quite sheer about the shadows yet with ultra shimmer. They are almost like applying pigments. By building up the colour you can achieve both a deep colour and super sparkle which really catches the light and makes your eyes pop. The first time I wore this palette my mum straight away pointed out how beautiful my eyeshadow was, so I knew I was onto a winner. The colours are something out of Morocco and there are a number of colour combinations that would work beautifully together. Not to mention how stunning the packaging is. Although you may think the palette is quite pricey, you are gaining five beautiful eyeshadows, which equals £7 per shadow; much cheaper than building your own Mac or Urban Decay palette. I absolutely adore this palette and I think I may have to start collecting these limited palettes when they are released.
