Let’s have a look at something non limited for a change:
This is the Estee Lauder Pure Color Eyeshadow Palette in 14 Enchanted Berries.
Swatches. I need to stop putting the lightest color on top. 😐
Estee Lauder claims that the lightest here is a satin, the pink is a shimmer, the taupey/bronzey color is a metallic, the lighter berry shade is a shimmer and the darkest is matte. So we’ve got a useful mix here, even if the shiny shades are still very subdued compared to certain other companies. I think it’s a very sophisticated palette and you can create looks that suit just about everyone with it.
I think you can see in my swatch pic that the pink is a bit powdery. It does not go on a smooth as the other colors and produces some fallout.
I am hugely in love with the lower three colors. 🙂
