Introducing a new multi-dimensional, limited edition trend collection for 2012, Estée Lauder Pure Color Violet Underground. Inspired by multiple cultures, styles and textures, this collection is the ultimate fusion of high style and street chic. The makeup in Pure Color Violet Underground takes glam rock to a new dimension with a fantastical aesthetic revolution of deep, vibrant violet and fuchsia tones.
Estée Lauder translates the drama of underground style fused with the luxury of couture onto eyes and lips saturated in a jewel-toned palette. Cognac and bordeaux combined with neon brights in scarlet and crimson create a mysterious palette rich in sensuality. Pure Color Violet Underground uses contrasting high lacquered intensified pigments and matte hues to create rich dramatic dimension. Together the strong pigments collide against a beautifully radiant satin complexion to give the overall look a modern yet dramatic high-fashion feel that any woman can try.
The NEW Pure Color Five Color EyeShadow Palette in Violet Underground is a mysteriously rich mix of deep violet, crimson and fuchsia grounded with a sensual pale pink and a powerful matte black shade at the center. The formula reaches new heights and textural dimension with an innovative ‘tribrid’ technology that allows for complete versatility with two finish options: apply wet for a vibrant-chrome charged flash of color or dry for a subtle shine finish. Combined with the exclusive True Vision Technology™, the high-definition color impact is amplified with a cyber-metallic finish that can create a range of daring looks.
After all is said about the Estee Lauder’s new Pure Color Five Eyeshadow Palette in Violet Underground, it’s time for me to say my piece. I’m CRAZY about it. Just one look, as you open the elegant compact, poetry seemed to ooze out of my system, just like what was written about it. Sexy. Mysterious. Enigma. Intense. Passionate!
As we go about the issues of practicality with this palette, it’s one big fat yes! If you peer closer to the shade lineup, there’s the versatile beige, copperish brown, and black. These three colors are the must-haves for neutral eye makeup, the eye makeup for any occasion. Those three colors can be used with beige as a base, the brown as a contour shade, and the black as an outer V shade. Aside from that, use the black primarily and you can sport night-sexy smoky eyes! The midnight blue and the fuchsia shade are on the backseat, for me, as they will fulfill my whim when I’m feeling adventurous for the day, or night. Such a versatile eyeshadow palette, don’t you think?
The texture of the eyeshadow was really silky – no coarseness, and no fallout involved here at all. In its quiet grace, it just did its job almost too perfectly, as it glided smoothly on my eyelids. I’m really, really in love with this eyeshadow palette! I haven’t tried using this wet, though, as I am feeling in harmony with shy shades as of the moment.
For P2,500.00 for this palette, this is so worth it. I encourage every girl out there ( or guy – this would make a fabulous Christmas gift to your girl ) to get this limited edition palette from Estee Lauder as I see this as one of the gems of their Holiday collection.
