Estee Lauder Metallic Must Have!

I was at the Estee Lauder counter about a week ago picking up some more moisturizer. While I was there I was browsing around. I walked around the other side of the counter where the makeup is and there was this big display of new eye shadows. There were twenty new Pure Color EyeShadows, ten matte colors and ten metallic colors.

I'm a huge sucker for shimmer and sparkles. When I see something shimmer under those bright lights in department stores I'm hypnotized by it's beauty and before you know it I'm at the register whipping out my debit card. So of course the metallic colors were screaming at me. All of the shades though were so beautiful and really pigmented.

Also they are having a GWP and were taking pre-orders at the time. Yes, I'm a big sucker for a free gift with purchase too! So of course I could not say no. I picked out two Metallic eye shadows and two Double Wear Stay in place ShadowCremes. I picked up my stuff yesterday and I love everything.

One of the Metallic shadows I got is #97 Emerald. OMG! This color is BEAUTIFUL! When I swatched it last week I knew right away I had to have it! I can't tell you how much I LOVE this color. It's a beautiful emerald/hunter green color with blue and copper/gold shimmer...OMG! It is so pigmented and blendable. This is such a unique color. I think everyone should have it!

Oh yeah all the colors are Limited Edition of course! :-/

Double Wear Shadow Cream in Pink Blush, #96 Metallic e/s in Amethyst, #97 Metallic e/s in Emerald, Double Wear Shadow Cream in Blue Velvet.

Emerald, Amethyst
Pink Blush, Blue Velvet

Natural light~ You can see the blue shimmer in it here.

Flash~ This one washes out the color of the shadow but it picked up all the copper/gold shimmer in it.

You can kinda see both colors of shimmer in this one.

I'm really happy with everything. I love the shadow cremes. I did a review on them when I first started my blog, so check that out if you would like. I really love Blue Velvet. It can be used as a liner as well as a shadow/base. I have it on today as a liner and it's so pretty. Check out the Emerald Metallic shadow if you have a counter near you. You will love it! :D

You can find all of this at your nearest Estee Lauder counter or at

One last thing I wanted to thank all of you for following and my new followers, Thank you! It really means a lot to me! Also I think some of you might not know my name because I noticed in some tags people posted the name of my website/screen name haha. It's Crystal. So if you have any questions or there is anything you want to know just ask. I love to read your comments and see what you have to say! :-)
