Estee Lauder Extravagant Gold Photos + Swatches

The only eye shadows in the new Estee Lauder Christmas Collection, come in the form of a five shade palette. The packaging and design is the same as that of the Blue Dahlia eye shadow palette we saw released earlier this year.

This time we're treated to bronze, gold and brown tones which are great for autumn/winter as they are all year round. The texture of the shadows is smooth, and the overall quality is good, although with the exception of the dark chocolate brown shade, they don't appear to have the same density as the Blue Dahlia eye shadows. 

My favourite shade is the aforementioned dark brown in the middle, it has the most pigment of them all and I can see myself definitely using this to smoke out eye looks with other shadows I own.

No flash

I have a lot of neutral, bronzey type shadow shades so the mixture in this palette although pretty, hasn't made me (a make up fanatic) stop in my tracks. The shades also look quite different in natural daylight and not as vibrant as they do when taken with a camera flash. They're inoffensive, wearable shades that can be worn by a range of skin tones which is always a winning formula.

However, I think this would make a lovely gift, which is quite handy with Christmas being around the corner. Who wouldn't be pleased to find this under their tree on Christmas morning?

How much is it? £34
Where can I buy it from? Estee Lauder counters nationwide, Estee Lauder online

FOTD using the palette is coming up shortly.

Thanks for the heads up about the pigmentation, I was actually contemplating this as my first EL purchase. I guess I'll look elsewhere, as pretty as it is :)

*Gasps* This palette is just BEAUTIFUL.
How it looks in daylight kind of put me off though...
