Hello Everyone,
So for a while now i have been just dying to get my hands on the Estée Lauder EyeShadow Duo in the colour Raisins, there has been so much hype about this little eyeshadow duo and i think its mainly down the the lovely Tanya & Zoe for forever mentioning it in their videos.
Now I’m always late on ‘hyped products’ bandwagon so as usual this one was no different, eventually i get the gist of these hyped products (well don”t i sound like an old lady!) and i usually want them once everyone else has got their hands on them first and then they become sold out. – i don’t know when i will change this habit – i also hope I’m not the only one who does this!? Luckily one day a few months back, i was just browsing boots online and noticed they had it in stock! i quickly jumped up and down inside for a minute or two and then whipped it in my online basket before they said it was a mistake or that it had sold out again and with in a few days IT WAS FINALLY MINE!
First of Estée Lauder is a brand which i just totally overlook and must stop doing this, i have no idea for why but i do, i just don’t go over to the counters or find myself swishing past them in a world of my own but i made a vow to change this as when i buy a product of theirs i always love it! So onto the Estée Lauder EyeShadow Duo, first things first are they not just the most b-e-a-utiful colours you have ever seen in an eyeshadow duo? I just find myself going weak at the knees every time i open it, plus the pigmentation is great – you only need a teeny tiny amount on your brush to see results   (and this really helps me when ones not the best at applying eyeshadow!)
Once you’ve applied your eyeshadow, well it’s staying put! – the longevity of these are amazing! i didn’t use a primer with mine as i am still getting into the whole eyeshadow routine, and well that wasn’t a problem, they didn’t smudge or budge all day, which was great. The only thing which I’m not too keen on about the whole thing is the eyeshadow brush which you get in the kit although let face it none of these brushes you get in are ever that good and even that is great compared to some I’ve used in the past!
At £23 it can be considered quite pricey for a pair of eyeshadows but for the quality you get and well lets face it that packaging is well worth paying extra for it’s just GORGEOUS! so for me it was very very easily justified – this little eyeshadow duo has been well loved already in the short time I’ve had it and i can’t see my love for it changing any time soon.
Did you manage to get your hands on Estée Lauder EyeShadow Duo in Raisins?

    I've been lusting after this after seeing Zoe were it all the time! It really is gorgeous!
    – would love for you to pop over my blog out at some point :)

    Oooh that palette is gorgeous! I'm the same as you, I never want the hyped stuff until it's sold out. Happened to me with the Estee Lauder blush that was so popular a while back, the moment I decided I needed it in my life to be loved forever it was nowhere to be found! Such sadness. ;p

    I've always wanted this eyeshadow duo after seeing Zoella use it on one of her make-up looks! I haven't tried Estee Lauder's eyeshadows yet, but i don't doubt their quality because i am sure that it would be up to standards~ It's out of stock everywhere…i think i will try to find a close shade by MAC hopefully :D

    Your eye makeup looks gorgeous~ It really suits you <3

  • Sally

    I got my mum this for her birthday and she loves it, need to get my hands on it for myself! It looks lovely on you :)

  • Layla D

    The colours and packaging is absolutely beautiful but I don't think I would spend £23 for it as I do think you can buy other brands and have the same quality but I agree the packaging and colours are beautiful haha! :)

    I've been so eager to buy this for months but I still haven't. The colours in the Raisins duo are lovely.

    Sometimes, it really is worth splurging on an expensive product if the results are so worth the price.
