Oh my god I’m obsessed with these blushes.


estee lauder color portfolio blush


I would never leave my house without a blush .Ladies trust me with these very peachy,pinky and coraly blush your face just gets a natural blushy effect.It gives very natural look and these ones are perfect for a party or a daily office makeup or a college makeup.They are very light are don’t give an artificial effect,it gives a natural look

There are 3 colors . They are:

sensuous rose,peach passion and pink kiss


Here comes bronzer.This one is a drawback in this palette as this is a shade which didn’t suite my skin color.This one only suits for a pale white skinned beauties.Most of the Indian females have beige skintone but this one only suits for pale white skin.So I’m tring my level best to get a fairer skin so that I can use this 😛

It is named as medium 2

here is a swatch of blushes and the bronzer

I know we all love lipsticks and here comes the most beautiful shades of lipsticks that suits for almost any skin colour.I just love these lipsticks.When I first saw these lipstick palette I was like “oh my god they are so pretty 😀 “ .Out of the 15 lipsticks 11 are long lasting .I don’t understand why they named it as long lasting L as I did not find it long lasting.They just lasted me for about 4 hours that too with out any consumption of snacks .But if you use a lipgloss over it ,it lasts for about 6-7 hours.As I work for 9 hours a day this wont work for me . So I started using it for shopping , etc ., as it takes less time than my office schedule.

And coming to the pigmentation it gives a medium coverage. But people searching for highly pigmented lipsticks may not like these much.

Coming to the best part of these lipsticks they are moisturizing. One doesn’t need a moisturizer beneath these lipsticks .Isn’t that an advantage:-D

The colors are named as:

Melon,vanilla truffle,rose tea,innocence,tiramisu,wild ginger,tiger eye,mystic mauve,candy,rose envy,scarlet siren,hot copper,velvet plum,fuchsia fever,plum fizz

Here is the swatch of these lipsticks

I know,I know that you people are waiting for this part

Every woman would never reject a lipgloss which gives a shine and sparkle to her lips ( and im one who just love and love lipglosses)It is like I cant live without lipglosses and lipsticks :-O


estee lauder color portfolio gloss


Ok coming to the review there are 2 lip glosses present in this box and they are named as:

paraline paradise and fuchsia fantasy

paraline paradise is a shimmery light rosy pink color which is a beautiful color.It just gives the shimmery effect with a slight hint of pink color. I love using this with bold and matte lipsticks with which it gives a shimmery effect .

fuchsia fantasy on the other hand is a bright reddish pink color .It also just gives the shimmery effect with a slight hint of bright pink color.It is best to use it on the bold reddish colors.

Here comes the swatches:

Last but not the least


Eyeliner is a must for every female as it instantly brightens up eyes and gives bold and confident look.

There are 2 shades of eyeliners .It is a duo pencil eyeliner which have black and brown clors on its both ends.This comes in the smuge free and long lasting range .It really is a smudgefree and long lasting eyeliner.It staed for about 9 hours with out smudging ,but on the water line it stays for about 6 hours.It really is a very good product.

What I like about Estee Lauder Pure Color Portfolio Makeup Palette :

  • Beautiful range of eyeshadows,with good colors and texture which helps brighten up your eyes
  • Very natural colors of blushes which suits any skin color and gives a natural look
  • smudge free and long lasting eyeliner
  • lipsticks are very moisturizing
  • lipglosses are very shimmery and gives a very beautiful shimmery effect
  • and the applicator brushes are so soft(forgot to mention that part)

What I don’t like about Estee Lauder Pure Color Portfolio Makeup Palette :

  • bronzer is a big disaster.It doesn’t suit Indian skintones.
  • lipsticks doesn’t last longer as claimed
  • Lipglosses may be a bit pigmented

Overall verdict: It is a good product worth a trial

Rating: 4.00(-1 for the bronzer)
