“I wanted to experiment with texture and create a new way of playing with makeup. Pure Color Stay-on Shadow Paints are great for mixing and are an especially easy way to apply makeup – there are infinite possibilities.”
Tom Pecheux, Creative Makeup Director, Estée Lauder
I was recently given a chance to try 2 of the new Estée Lauder Pure Color Stay-On Shadow Paints. I’m very fond of cream eyeshadow (Chanel Illusion D’Ombres, Paint Pots, Color Tattoos- love them all!) so I was very excited about these new Tom Pecheux offerings.
The Shadow Paints come in 9 colours including neutrals and brights. I tried Cosmic- which is a metallic burgundy with silver microshimmer, and Halo- which is a pearlescent champagne.
As a number of reviewers have noticed, there is a large variation in the formula between the colours in this collection. Halo (the pearlescent champagne shade) applies beautifully with an even pearlescent finish, and lasts for hours on the lids without creasing; Cosmic (the metallic burgundy) on the other hand goes on patchy, and flakes off significantly after it dries. You must use some sort of base colour underneath Cosmic otherwise you will be seeing patches of bare eyelid when bits of the product flakes off. I would recommend testing these individually in person.
Colour-wise, think they’re both gorgeous and easy to wear. I really love Cosmic, which is such a perfect colour for a jewel toned smoky eye- it’s really such a shame that the formula is so difficult to work with on my eyes.
note: these products were sent to me by PR for consideration.Posted by myfunnyvalentine on Mar 21st, 2013 in Eye shadow, FOTD, Reviews, Swatches | 67471 commentEstee+Lauder+Pure+Color+Shadow+Paints+Review%3A+Cosmic+and+Halo2013-03-21+02%3A39%3A45myfunnyvalentinehttp%3A%2F%2Fmyfunnyvalentineblog.com%2F%3Fp%3D6747
