OK...anyone who knows me knows that I am a make-up junkie!
I'm not going to go into the pros and cons of wearing make-up, how much is too much, etc. I only know that as a "woman of a certain age," looking my best inevitably involves applying a little paint to the old barn, if you know what I mean.
As he sometimes does on my December birthday, my husband gifted me this year with Estee Lauder's Blockbuster gift with purchase.
It was a make-up lover's dream. Among the stand-outs: the eye shadow palette. The colors are absolutely lovely, go on beautifully, and fulfill just about any eye-shadow needs a make-up lover could have.
Here's a closer look:
I am absolutely loving this palette. Here's me wearing a few of the colors (click to make the picture larger):
On my lid: Estee Lauder Ivy Envy, Satin
In my crease: Estee Lauder Lavish Mink, Matte
Under my eyebrows: Nude Fresco, Satin
While this palette is no longer available, you can buy the individual colors at your Estee Lauder counter. Which is what I plan to do with the Lavish Mink color. It's exactly the deep, dark shade I love in a brown eye shadow.
Are you a cosmetics junkie too? I'd love to hear about your favorite palettes and products!
