PRODUCT REVIEW: ESTEE LAUDER'S 2 IN 1 WET/DRY FORMULA 12 COLORS EYE SHADOW
My very first eye shadow palette in 12 shades! Ever since I started collecting makeups, I usually buy or have the singles, duos or eye shadows in quads. My mom sent this to me and it is my first 12 colors eye shadow.
I am ecstatic because this eye shadow palette consists of matte shades! I prefer using matte stuff. Let me now share with you my experience with this mouth watering eye palette.
Brand: Estee Lauder
Type: Eye Shadow Palette
Weight: 0.5g each color
Shades Included: Egg, Shell, Camel, Selection from Forest Quad Collection, Selection from Clouds Quad Collection, Selection from Denim Quad Collection, Sand Dollar, Tea Rose, Brown Sugar, Khaki, Fog, Selection from Denim Collection, Eggplant
The eye shadows are not dusty and chalky when applied. It applies evenly and smoothly. It is lightweight and easy to bring when travelling. Its matte! I love playing with the colors. I usually combine it with my other eye palettes, specially when I am combining matte and shiny eye shadows for a dramatic look.
The only problem with this eye palette, it is not as highly pigmented compared to other Estee Lauder singles eye shadow colors that I tried. I need to build up many layers to show the color of the eye shadow that I am using. It does not last long as I kind of expected from a high end brand. I need the additional help of a primer to make it last longer.
Buy again? 80%
Overall Rating: 3/5
Price: My Mom said she also got this as a gift but she does not usually use eye shadows so she gave it to me. I tried searching for this online but cannot find an exact palette nut Estee Lauder Eye shadows in quads and 5 shades are usually priced $30. So this palette may cost more.
Where to buy? I am not sure if this is still available in any Estee Lauder counters. I think this is a limited edition one.
