Estée Lauder Pure Color Stay-On Shadow Paints in Cosmic
( Estee Lauder Pure Color Shadow Paints in Cosmic – £19* )
For a while now I have been a massive fan of golds, coppers and brown eyeshadow shades, mixing them often from light golds in the centre to deep browns on the outer eye. This is why I was so excited to try the new Estee Lauder Pure Color Shadow Paint in Cosmic – a deep, golden brown cream shadow. It is one of nine shadow paints that have been released for the new Pure Color collection, alongside an emerald green, bright fuchsia violet, silver and a number of other vibrant shades. They are promoted as being highly pigmented, long lasting for all day wear and buildable. I would probably agree. The pigmentation is lovely but the pay off is not as much as I would have liked on first application if I am entirely honest. Yet, the cream does go on beautifully and doesn’t crease, and can be easily builded to a nice deep golden brown with more applications. This does mean though that you can have a more subtle eyeshadow look or build up the colour to be much darker. I have been wearing this quite often, blending it with light gold shades in the inner corner and using this as a warm shadow in the crease; a look that I’ve been really loving. When it comes to luxury eyeshadows this is definitely a brilliant find, and I recommend you have a look at the other shades in the range as they are really gorgeous. This is definitely one of my favourite products at the moment.
