Estée Lauder Fall 2009 Eye ShadowsFriday, August 21, 2009
I've already mentioned some of the Estée Lauder Fall 2009 Sensuous Gold Collection, today I wanted to show you the eye quads.
Honestly, in person the colors are better than I could capture in photos. Both quads are textured like "hammered gold" and each shadow has a light overlay of very irridescent colors over it (some of which you can still see in these pictures). Underneath, the colors are soft matte tones. While you can follow the directions on the EL website for an intricate look, I thought that both quads were very well suited to simple washes of color with a little bit of shading on the outer lid and in the crease using the darker colors from the quads. Add a dark liner and you're set!
The shadows blend easily and last all day without fading or caking. Overall both quads are amazing, and I thought worked really well on both me (cool toned) and on my mom (who is warm toned). You can click the image above for a closer look.
