Glosscar Nomination - Pure Perfection
So firstly I'll get rid of the elephant in the room, yes these palettes do cost $90 but you're getting five different shades and how many of us ever hit pan on our individually packed single shadows? For me purchasing a palette like this is good value, if I were to buy five individual shadows from most brands it could cost me even more and I'd never use them all anyway so in my opinion single shades aren't good value unless you are using that shade constantly.
Now to the actual product, I have never been really disappointed by anything Estee Lauder does and I find their shadows to be some of the best out there for pigmentation, staying power, shade choice and limited fallout. The great thing about these palettes is that there's a range of finishes including matte, satin, shimmer and metallic so you can not only play around with mixing shades but also with the finishes.
These palettes come in neutrals as well as blues and purples with a few other shades thrown in for fun. Of the five colours in each palette there's one central shade that's smaller than the rest but it's also the darkest making it perfect for lining so not as much is needed. I actually get frustrated with palettes that have equal amounts of all shades as I often hit pan with the light, base shades when I've barely touched the darker one.
Anyone with sensitivities they'll be pleased to know that these little beauties are Ophthalmologist-tested andf ragrance-free. I really do think that the best thing about Estee Lauder's Five Color Eyeshadow Palettes is the versatility, the range of shades means you can take your look from day to night with the help of the built-in mirror and applicators, you can be subtle or bold with the help of this one compact product. I am definitely planning on buying more of thses gorgeous palettes, they're so good I just can't resist.

love the pure color five palette
These palettes are perfect for every look. The shadows have high pigmentation and are easy to blend on your skin without any dragging, as they are smooth. They do not fade or crease on me. The colour selections go so well together and in each 'five' you get a selection of mattes and shimmers with lights and darks of different shades in the same colour family. Lovely gold packaging that looks expensive and pretty. Easy to use applicators are included. Definitely my favourite eyeshadow palettes.

When it comes to choosing eye shadows I look specifically for 3 things: High pigmentation, easy to apply/blend and long lasting. If it can't live up to these expectations then in my opinion it is just not up to par. Estée Lauder NEVER fail to deliver with their eye shadows.
These Palettes come in a shade to suit everyone and they are easily used for a fresh, natural appearance through to the boldest, most dramatic looks.
The colours range from matte through to metallic and everything in between, they can be applied very subtly with a nice sheer sweep of colour or built to show a bold splash across the eyes, there is no need to fear blending with these palettes because the formula is so user friendly.
Packaging is typical Estée Lauder chic, with a useful mirror for on the go glimpses of your handy work. Applicators could be used in emergencies but I always prefer to use proper brushes.
Don't be afraid of the price tag. Yes they are expensive but they are such good quality and will last you a long time.

The most luxurious eyeshadow you'll ever find
i have this stunning eyeshadow palette by Elizabeth Arden in Surreal Violet and i love it to death. it is hands down the most amazing eyeshadow palette i have ever owned and probably ever will own. i love the sleek gold packaging, it's so high class and pretty. the colours inside work so well together and go perfectly together for a gorgeous smokey eye. absolutely brilliant for day and night and everything in between. there are so many looks you can come up with, using just this one palette. some of the colours are shimmery and some aren't, so it's a perfect mix. the texture is finely milled and highly pigmented, they are super easy to blend and feel so incredibly smooth on the delicate eye skin. the shadows last all day and do not crease on my eyes.
so stunning and so worth the price!

The best eyeshadow palette in the world! I have the set of blues and they go perfectly together. The colours are highly pigmented, blend easily and apply like a dream. They are a mix of shimmers, mattes and satins and last all day until you remove them. Fantastic high class packaging which looks great and is sturdy with a big mirror inside and nice applicators.

SO worth the price!
It was love at first sight for Bronze Dune and I. It filled a void in my make-up collection I wasn't even aware I had... So overcome with the selection of taupes the make-up world had on offer, I had neglected my warm toned browns and bronzes. The shame!
But Bronze Dune set me right. With a white, a pale gold, a bronze, a dark red-brown and a neutral deep brown, this palette is perfection. The pigmentation! The texture! The idiot-proof application - no falling, no creasing, easily blendable... Gorgeous.

pure colour - purely Fab
Estee Lauder consistantly deliver great quality products and the Pure colour eyeshadow palettes are no different. I have Blue Dahlia which as the name suggests is a set of 5 complimentary colours in the blue family, there is a deep shimmery blue perfect for the our eye, a bright true blue for the accent colour, a mid-toned grey for the crease, a black with blue shimmers for the outer eye and a sheer white with blue and purple shimmers that's a perfect highlight colour. The colours are soft and easy to apply and each compact can deliver many looks from subtle daytime, to night time sexy smokey or high impact, depending on your method of application.
Blue Dahlia comes housed in the signature gold Estee lauder compact, which flips open to reveal a decent sized mirror on the inside of the lid, the shadow colours and 2 applicators. The entire palette fits neatly into the palm of my hand and is compact and simple to take anywhere with you from your handbag to your travel kit.
The only real criticism I have with these compacts is that Estee Lauder doesn't individually name the colours on the back, so it makes it hard to replace a colour you have fallen in love with. It would also be nice to see these high end brands step it up in terms of their appilcators, by perhaps including a decent quailty brush instead of small useless disposable type brushes.

I have this palette is Blue Dahlia and this is my go to palette simply because I love the blue colour in it. All the colours in the palette complements each other really well that you don't need anything else.
All the colours are super pigmented and one swipe of brush is enough to get that intense look. The shadows are easy to apply as they are buttery soft. The thing that impresses me most is that I don't experience any fallouts when I am using this shadows and this thing is very important for me while choosing an eyeshadow.
While using this shadows I never get any problem like creasing or anything and they are very long lasting. I can wear them for 12 hours and the shadows remain as-is ofcourse with a primer but then also I am impressed because most shadows just can't stay that long.
The packaging is very luxurious and sleek with a big mirror that means you can easily take it with you while travelling so you don't have to carry multiple things.
Overall I am very impressed with the shadows, although they are a bit expensive but it is often said 'What you pay you get'.
