Estee Lauder Pure Color Five Color Gelée Powder EyeShadow Palette in Bronze Sands

Pure Color Gelée Eye Palette 01 Bronze Sands Cyber Metallic
Can a product name get any longer....... The also put on Cyber Metallic on the box as well after Bronze Sands. lol

The only time I seem interested in Estee Lauder is during their Bronze Goddess summer collection. This  palette retails for $48.50 CAN but with tax and shipping came to $63.29 CAN. :P Bronze Goddess collection is only sold as select displays in Canada (or at least not in my sears location). This however gave me the opportunity to try out this new formula for eyeshadows. I shipped from their Mississauga warehouse within 24 hours. Mine came in with a few broken ridges on the sand dunes along the edges.

Bronze Sands Cyber Metallic Swatches Flash then Daylight. Shades 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5.

Product: 5 pressed metallic and firmer eyeshadow. They're not as buttery in texture but they can be used either wet or dry. The finish of these works to show off the round shape of you lid.

Colour: Again mostly wearable shades as this is Estee Lauder. All produce a smooth metallic finish except the #1 shade as it's a more light gold shimmer.

Wear: I didn't test these without a primer as I do have oily lids and the product is not designed for stay power. With a primer, the finish never faded or budget for a full 10 hour I've been wearing them.

Packaging: This is my second Estee Lauder palette and comes with the basic sponge/brush applicators. The large mirror that is a lightweight plastic makes it travel-friendly as well.

Compare: The formula is the same as MAC's Extra Dimension eyeshadows and vice versa. MAC's Extra Dimension is 1/3 less in price the Estee Lauder single shadows but this palette makes for the best value if you're looking for more colour options. 

Verdict: It's a keeper. Estee Lauder is a higher end line but I'll be happy to buy another Pure Color Gelée Eye Palette in the future for the finish.
