Today Iâ€™m going to review on essteelauder colorportfolio palette which is gifted by my sister
Trust me this is the best palette Iâ€™ve ever seen
First let me give you a brief discription about the products which we get in this beautiful box
- LIPSTICK(11-LONG LASTING;4-CRYSTAL)
- INTENSE KAJAL/EYELINER(1)
- and some APPLICATORS(4)
Coming to eyeshadows this palette consists of some beautiful and colorful eyeshadows which im literally obsessed with.They are really soft and really pigmented.Just one swipe gives a beautiful look.
And the colors are named as:
Ivory slipper,french vannila,iridescent violet,pink flash,sugar cube,sugar biscuit,pralines,flirty lilac,riviera rose,winking periewinkle,wild sable,cobblestones,amethyst spark,nude fresco,tempting mocha,hot cinnamon,enchanted forest,purple passion,tranquil moon,amazing grey,chocolate bliss,morracan mint,peacock blue,candy crave,clouds,lavish mink,ivy envy,nocturnal blue,raisins,moons.
Here is a swatch of eyeshadows
Oh my god Iâ€™m obsessed with these blushes.
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 donâ€™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 didnâ€™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 Iâ€™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 â€œoh my god they are so pretty 😀 â€œ .Out of the 15 lipsticks 11 are long lasting .I donâ€™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 doesnâ€™t need a moisturizer beneath these lipsticks .Isnâ€™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
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.
Here is a swatch:
Here are applicators/brushes:
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 doesnâ€™t suit Indian skintones.
- lipsticks doesnâ€™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)
