This was another Estee Lauder purchase I could not resist. You know me I obsess with purple. I probably have 50 purple eyeshadows and I always find something different on each one so I think they are deserve a slot in my collection. If I'm honest, I'm not sure you can see the difference between them once they are on the lid but hey, we all need to collect something, right?
This particular colour is called Electric Orchid. I cannot explain how pretty this colour is! It has a slight duo-chrome effect that goes from blue to pink.
The texture is like butter and the finish is a satin one.
On the pan the colour looks outrageously pretty and intense but when you swatch it you find that you need to pile it on heavily to get the same colour pay off. I guess this doesn't bother me too much because the colour you get is so pretty so I'm happy to compromise.
Fortunately, this colour is part of their regular eyeshadow collection and you can get it at any Estee Lauder counter or online here.
The Estee Lauder single eyeshadows are £19 each. This might sound like a lot, I know! But you get a very good quality shadow that blends like a dream and stays on the lid for quite a bit. I think they are worth it!
