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!

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

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,
