Best For Blending, Long-wear, High-impact Color
You get a lot of bang for your buck with these singles! There is a lot of product in these little cases. The shadows are soft, easy to blend and wearable. My favorites for highlighting the brow bone, inner corners of the eyes and tops of the cheekbones are Sugar Cube and Tea Biscuit. They give a very natural "glow" to the face. I use Sugar Cube if I'm doing cooler shades on the eye and Tea Biscuit for warmer shades. Some of my favorites for lid colors are Honey Drop, Berry Ice, and Smokey. These shadows never look over done and too shimmery. Some of them are shimmery, but not glittery.
So many colors and only one face. I own so many colors and can't really say that I have a favorite, it depends on my mood. What I can say is this is the best eyeshadow on the market. They say that all makeup is created equal but I have to disagree. This goes on smoothly and is perfection every time. I also own a Quad that I love. If I had to choose one color that is the prettiest I would say 'Ginger Drop'. The blues go on splendidly and do not have that 70's look, very subtle and pretty. I use the eyeshadow base that EL makes and the eyeshadow really pops. I can't say enough about this product. Oh, one last thing. I gave EL makeup as Christmas gifts to my sisters and niece this last season and they loved them also. My gifts were a hit!
The Pure Color eye shadows can not be beat. They are amazingly long lasting and very fine in texture. Of the 7 or 8 colors I've tried, all of them are my favorite. I'm not going to buy another brand as long as Estee Lauder continues to make their eye shadows the way they are right now. The lighter high-lighting colors have this remarkable ability to meld with skin. At first it looks like not much is going on and I'm not sure I've put on enough, but just a few moments later, there's the color, always soft and never crumbly. Super silky. I hope I can collect many more of these gorgeous colors.
Amber metallic is my go to shade. I apply a thin line of it along my upper lash line and then buff a bit onto the lid, gradually fading the color as it approaches my brow bone. I then add a bit under the outside corners of my lower lashes. It really makes my eyes pop and gives a natural healthy glow. Great product!!! Love it!!!
I am quite pleased with the eye shadow I ordered. The shade is very pleasing and the product glides on smootly with no creasing. After going through many different brands, I find this one to be my choice.
This is the eyeshadow I always use. Over the years I have collected way too many colors!! :)
I find that PureColor Eyeshadow goes on best with a bristle brush rather than a foam applicator if you like a light look (just a personal preference). It does stay on for awhile, but if you don't use a primer it will eventually make a line along the eyelid crease if you don't touch it up. Luckily, EL sells these in all kinds of compact combinations that are easy to take along in your purse. :)
I miss certain colors a great deal. I have hazel eyes and always long for peridot and army greens to match, like "Khaki," as well as silvery grays (I know that there's "Ivy" here, but it's a little too jade!). Dear Estee Lauder, please bring back the greens!!
I've used Estee Lauder eyshadows for several years and love them! This time I purchased Honeydrop PureColor eyeshadow, a neutral honey-peach shade. The shadow goes on so smoothly, is very blendable, and stays put all day long. The packaging is sleek -- very nice size, and has a little mirror inside. Great neutral to wear alone, or add a little pizzaz with berry or plum tones (I used Berry Ice). My eyes look fresh and young!
Best For Blending, Long-wear, High-impact Color, awesome choice of colors, consistency, price
I have been using Estee Lauder products for years... I have occasionally strayed to other cosmetic counters thinking I might like their product too...
Each and Everytime I end up going right back to my E L there is just no other make up that compares, there is not one negative thing about it..it is simply the best eye make up ever made in fact E L is the best make up and skin care period!
I have been using EL eyeshadow for years, and I love how smoothly it goes on. I even had two favorite shades: Pale Moon paired with Plum Pop. On my order I tried Praline, a new color that I had never even seen at the store.
Praline is my new favorite, go-to color. A nice neutral with personality. This shadow should be called Super Shadow!
I recently bought a Pure Color Eyeshadow single because I love the color "Ginger Drop." I had already tried "Smokey" and "Ivy"-and I loved them both! They go on so smooth and the colors are one of a kind. Estee Lauder makes colors for any look you want. I like "Ginger Drop" and "Smokey" especially because they can stand by themselves or go easily with another color.
I am a real fan of EL Pure Color Shadow--for several reasons. It goes on smoothly and is long lasting--and the colors are great. My favorite is Mocha Cup, which I use for an accent shadow and as a subtle eyeliner.
A few colors are just too sparkly for a woman of my age, but there are plenty to choose from.so that I can have a wardrobe of shadows in suitable colors and finishes.
I suffer from oily eyelids and this shadow stays a good 6+ hours without any primer. So far I've only tried Tea Biscuit and Cinnamon and now I'm focused on getting the perfect purple (preferably jewel-tone) to bring out my brown eyes. The shimmer finish is great for a sultry yet mature look which is what I always desire in makeup.
I love the way this powder eye shadow glides on. Blends well with other colors. I hate the little plastic compact. No matter how carefully I store it on the shelf, the platic around the hinge breaks long before the shadow is half gone. Then you wind up losing the lid or holding the whole thing together with a rubber band. How glamerous is that?
I got it in Honey Drop, and it satisfies everything I was looking for in an eyeshadow. The texture is creamy, the color is true to how it looks (soft and elegant, good for both the everyday use and a romantic date), and it lasts all day without a crease. Though I think the mirror is rather pointless: it's too small, after all. Still, highly recommend it!
This eyes shadow has the most vibrant colors that stays with you all day! I got tired of buying stuff at the drug store. Looks great in the package and only staying on a coupple of hours. The pure color eye shadow by Estee Lauder is absolutley wonderful and from now on I will only buy the best!!!
This shadow has great pigment and is even better when paired with a Double Wear Stay-in-place Shadow Cream because it acts like a base to the eyeshadow and will prevent it from creasing and prolong the wear of your eyeshadows. They go on smooth and are easy to blend. This is a great product. I have them in every color!
I first received this eye shadow as a free sample in "Cinnamon". It feels so smooth, the shade remains even, and the shimmer is just right. I personally loved the way it looked on me, but when I received several compliments from coworkers and friends the first day I wore it, I was SOLD.
This colour was just what I was looking for, it is not as pictured, more of a beige than pink as noted by other reviews. It is the perfect shade, very subtle, great on its own for a well rested look or as a base with other colors. Wears well. You will not be disappointed with this product.
