Because I Needed Another Eyeshadow..

Not.



Last week when I went to Bicester, I saw this beautiful eyeshadow at the CCO - French Vanilla Pure Color Eyeshadow by Estee Lauder. I've been wanting a pale gold eyeshadow for a while so this was a pleasant find - but given my heavy purchases that day, I skipped.



Aaaand of course I couldn't get it out of my head, and ended up spending a fiver more than I could've! At £16.50, it's the most expensive single eyeshadow I've bought but I think it's a beautiful colour, the formula seems soft and blendable and the packaging is absolutely stunning. It's slim, golden and I'm super impressed that even with it being a single eyeshadow, it comes with a mirror and applicator. I'm really excited to try this out and see how the formula compares to other eyeshadows. With MAC and Chanel leading my favourite eyeshadow formulas, this has a high bar to meet!

I think and hope this will be a keeper :)

Have you tried any Estee Lauder eyeshadows?

  1. I always tend to impulse buy my beauty products without actually needing them. I am a huge fan of Estee Lauders Lipsticks and skincare products but i haven't really tried their eyeshadows as of yet since other brands are more well known for their eyeshadows being really great. The colour of this is really pretty and i'm sure will be great for many looks~ Thanks for sharing and i hope that u are enjoying using it hehe :) xoxo

  2. I love estee lauder packaging, it always looks so luxurious! This is such a pretty eyeshadow shade! I dont know why but I dont think its humanly possible as a female to not buy eyeshadow, I have so many that are sooooo similar in colour yet in my mind they are 'different'! haha
