You already know that I love Estee Lauder Cosmetics. So today I will post my thoughts on the 5 colors Palette in Blue Dahlia, which I received from my sister on my b’day. I was so happy when I saw the box that I had no patience to even see which palette I received!
The packaging is very glamorous, with the signature Estee golden color, engraved with the initials of the brand. It features a large mirror and 2 double ended sponge tip applicators, one of them being from natural hair. It closes very well but I did have a few problems opening it.
The palette has five colors and you can find it in 8 different models where you can choose your favorite palette. I already want to purchase three more from this collection! The colors are very versatile giving you the ability to create both dramatic as well as wearable looks.
The eyeshadows are very easy to apply, they don't crease and are very easy to blend. Even though the eyeshadows from my palette are a little dark, I didn't have any problems with fallout. The staying power is great even if you don't use a base. Slightly moisten the brush with water before application, if you'd like to intensify the colors.
It weighs 7.6 g, the eyeshadows pans are very large. Although it is an expensive product, I recommend it to everyone who wants to make a long term investment. The only minus for me is the lightest color from the palette. Being with glitter particles, I fail to use it as a highlight. But, I use it on top of the eyeshadows when I want to add more sparkle. So after all, it's not such a big loss.
