Estee Lauder Haul

I've been wanting to talk about my Estee Lauder haul for quite awhile now. I bought these in Melbourne about three months ago, so I might be quite late in reviewing these for you girls. The item I initially got from the store was the Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Shadow Creme. I first heard about them from FrmHeadToToe and I was interested in finding out if they were worth the price. I tested them out on my hand and I only came back the next day to purchase. I must say I very much impressed. It stayed on for about 8 hours and it's also waterproof. 

I only wanted two colours at first, Silver Leaf and Antique Gold. And it turns out that they discontinued Silver Leaf, devastating really. So by recommendation by the nice salesgirl, I got  DW SC24 Mochacino, DW SC04 Antique Gold and DW CS06 Ivory Lace. And with three of the eyeshadows, I get a free Pure Color Eyeshadow palette, and a few other mini samples. SUPER HAPPY!

Front: Ivory Lace
 The Mochacino is a really nice base colour to use as a base for neutral looks. I am currently IN LOVE with it!! I am realaly thankful to the salesgirl who recommended it. It helps my eyeshadow last longer too and it's a really nice base colour when I use my Naked palette.

Ivory Lace, I tend to use it more as a eyebrow bone highlighter and the inner corner of my eyes to brighten up the entire look. But lately I've been using it as a base because of it creaminess. And I use it for brighter look so that colours would show up better.

Antique Gold is a colour I've been wanting to get before I bought the rest but I somehow fell out of love with it. I still like it but not as hyped as I was before. It has a coppery colour instead of the gold I was really looking for.

Overall, I'm very much impressed with the eyeshadow creams. However, they are shimmery. So for those who are looking for a matte base, this might not be it. But I would really recommend this if they are looking for a nice eyeshadow base that lasts for a really long time. Did I mention it's waterproof? =D

Look at the shimmer! 
 Getting a palette for free, I was totally into this deal! The Pure Color Eyeshadow palette consist of 8 shadows and one Estee Lauder Signature Silky Blush. It comes with a blush brush and an eyeshadow applicator.

Back: 30 Sugar Cube, 01 Pink Flash
Front: 48 Silver Bell, 09 Amethyst Spark
Back: 79 Summer Linen, 13 Tranquil Moon
Front: 63 Tempting Mocha, 23 Berry Burst
Blush: 23 Fresh Plum
They aren't as pigmented as I would like them to be but I would say that the choice of colour for the palette is really really wonderful. I am totally in love with Amethyst Spark, Tranquil Moon and Berry Burst! They have a smooth feeling but like I said, not as pigmented. I would have to pack up on a lot of the shadow to get a really nice colour. I've swatched them for you using no primer at all.

 The Advanced Night repair series is pretty well known. The company has been campaigning it for quite a while now. And I must say with the samples I got, I finally get to test them out! I applied them everynight using a really small amount to pat all over my face. The next day I would usually feel really moisturized and my skin is able to sink any moisturizers I have faster and smoother. It has a really thick and concentrated texture so small drops would suffice for your entire face.

Last but not least, I got a mini perfume bottle called Pleasures. And I don't own EDPs cause they usually are too strong for me but I was really surprised with this one. It's not sweet, it's really fresh and it has a blend of floral scents. I checked on their website and it was a blend of Lilies, Peonies, Jasmine and Bale Rose. It seems sophisticated and classy. It's something I would wear to dinner parties or events that requires you to dress up. I really like this scent.

Well, I have more coming up! I have tons of stuff to review and maybe one of these days I'll film a tutorial for an upcoming holiday look! =D

Toodles with love,
