Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Eyeshadow Palette Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

This beauty named Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Eyeshadow Palette was a limited edition release part of Estee Lauder Holiday 2016 Blockbuster (quick review, photos). I can’t say I really wanted to have this palette but I did want the entire blockbuster set for all the products, especially for the full size ANR serum. I bet you’ve seen some of the shades from this palette in previous collections and to tell you the truth they are easily dupable, but for someone who’s new to Estee Lauder products or is looking for these exact shades, this palette is worth a try. It comes with two full size lip glosses as well, which you can attached to the palette and I really like this idea as it keeps the gloss in one place and it won’t feel in your purse if you decide to take it with you on the go. So you can follow me right after the jump for a review and closer look at the photos and to check out the colors that you may find in the permanent collection.

The palette features 16 eye shadows, a highlighter, blusher and a sculpting shade, but doesn’t come with any applicator or brushes. The plastic compact snaps shut and it’s quite sturdy, easy to hold and has a classy black and white design. It’s not the most interested packaging I’ve seen but not the worst either so the palette comes as an average for me. Continue Reading

Estee Lauder Holiday 2016 Skincare Superstars Quick Review

Hello pretties!

I couldn’t go buying Estee Lauder Holiday 2016 Blockbuster (review, photos) without getting the Estee Lauder Holiday 2016 Skincare Superstars (official info, promo photos) set as well. The fact is that last year by buying Estee Lauder Holiday 2015 Beauty of the Night Collection (review, photos) I discovered some really great skincare products and I said to myself I’ll try and take advantage of this year’s holiday offers as well and get me more Estee Lauder skincare. It’s true that some of these products were already known to me, while others were included in the holiday 2016 blockbuster as well, but I wanted to give away some of these goodies as a holiday gift to a dear one.

Estee Lauder Holiday 2016 Blockbuster Quick Review

Hello pretties!

The truth is that since Autumn started I feel guilty of too much shopping and less posting on the blog, and I mean reviews and swatches of the products I bought. Estee Lauder Holiday 2016 Blockbuster (official info, promo photos) was one of this year’s holiday goodie releases that I had to have in my collection. I’ve been buying their blockbuster holiday editions for years and it’s kind of a tradition for me, not to mention that the products are mostly full size and you get a great deal for your money. I admit though, this year’s blockbuster didn’t seem quite appealing to me on the makeup side, but I was sold the minute I spotted the full size Advanced Night Repair Serum and Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara which is one of my top 3 favorites and I always keep an extra one or two tubes in my drawer.

Estee Lauder Holiday 2016 Skincare Superstars Collection

Hello pretties!

Is that time of year again with great gift sets and gift with purchases come alive. This year Estee Lauder Holiday 2016 Skincare Superstars is offering a variety of five skincare products for you to try out, as well as a lip conditioner and eye masked packed together in a chic black and white travel case. I’m a sucker for this kind of offerings as I feel they give you a great opportunity to try out various skincare products at an affordable price and then decide if you do want to purchase the full size products.

I bought last year edition of Estee Lauder Beauty of the Night Holiday 2016 Collection (review, photos) so I’m thinking of getting this one as well. I really enjoyed using the Advanced Night Repair eye cream and synchronized recovery complex II so I got them over the past year as deluxe sizes with my Estee Lauder purchases.

Estee Lauder Holiday 2016 Blockbuster Modern Nudes and Smoky Noir

Hello beauties!

I was actually jumping for joy this morning when I saw the new Estee Lauder Holiday 2016 Blockbuster collection being already released online! This time last year, they were launching the Estee Lauder Holiday 2015 Makeup Artist Collection (review, swatches, photos) which I ordered online and picked up when I got to London a week later. I don’t want to miss this year’s edition as well but from what I’ve seen on the U.S. website there will be two versions, Modern Nudes and Smoky Noir. The difference is in the shades of each palette as well as on the lip colors. Estee Lauder Holiday 2016 Blockbuster Collection offers a lot of skincare and makeup products packed in a black classy travel case for an amazing price.

I personally love the Smoky Noir edition but in comparison to what Estee Lauder Holiday 2015 Blockbuster Collection had to offer, this one appears a bit shallow. The prices have gone up as well considering that last year I paid $59.50 / £54.00 well now we’ll have to pay $62.00 / £58.00. I don’t know if the in UK both versions will be released as on the official website I see now listed the Modern Nudes palette with a different selection of lipstick and lip gloss colors for this set than what it shows on the U.S. website. The terms and conditions for purchasing Estee Lauder Holiday 2016 Blockbuster will vary from country to country so you may check at your local counter. While in U.S. you can get this collection for $62.00 with any Estee Lauder purchase, in UK things are a little bit different and you have to buy any Estee Lauder perfume in order to be qualify for shopping the set (the same happened last year).

Over the past few days I’ve been playing a lot with my new NYX Ultimate Shadow Palette in Smoky & Highlight that I already reviewed earlier this week.

I hope you enjoy it!
