Estee Lauder Blue Dahlia Palette & FOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On June - 15 - 2010

I done did it!

Thanks lovely ladies!  With your help, guidance and lack of “LIKE DUH, she doesn’t know where to apply her shadowz”, I created a look with the soon-to-be-released limited edition Estee Lauder Blue Dahlia palette I received at the recent blogger launch:

Excuse the wayward eyebrow, I’m honestly not raising it… why DOES it do that?  I look perpetually dubious about something.  I only included it so that I could show you how it looks like with eyes open.

That’s better! (slightly).  How gorgeous is the teal on the lid?  I wasn’t sure I’d be able to carry teal next to my blue/green eyes very well, but I can just about get away with it.

So here’s what I used (and where):

(Shade #1) On the lid and blended just into the socket line

(Shade #2) In the crease and blended above

(Shade #3) Underneath the lower lashline

(Shade #4) Blended in the outer-v and inbetween the upper lashes to darken

(Shade #5) Just above the upper lashline for a little sparkle when I blink!

Hoorah, I used all shades!  I totally forgot to highlight with anything… so lazy.

I really wasn’t sure about using the teal and navy adjacent to one another, but you guys inspired me and you were completely correct!

I found that all the shades were easy to blend and nicely pigmented.  The white lacks pigment, but I’m certain that it’s inended use is as a layering shade rather than a highlight… it adds a good amount of sparkle without disrupting the tone of the shade you’re applying it to.

The taupe is the softest shade in the palette, with an almost buttery finish.  The blues are slightly rougher in texture, but apply beautifully nonetheless.

I also used a sample of one of the new Pure Colour Glosses in shade Twilight Petal, a very pretty pinky-nude infused with sparkle.  It’s a bit sticky, but the flipside is a long lasting finish.

The Estee Lauder Blue Dahlia palette and Twlight Petal gloss are due for release in August.

    You’ve done really well considering how boring the palette is ^_^
    This is a gorgeous look. Bright and Dark smokey at the same time.
    Vewy sexay! Those blues are to die for.
    “The white lacks pigment” >> is it really? lol x

    That is gorgeous. I have fond memories of working for Lauder, and I’m glad to see they are stepping it up a bit. But ugh, why does everything have to be named after that horrid Twilight series!?!? Really?!?!

  9. Great look ! It suits you very well 🙂

    I love this look! I believe it’s one of the most beautiful FOTD’s you’ve done. The colors really compliment your eyes and you look very sexy! xxx

  14. eek, you’re very, very good to me.

    The blush is by Menard – a Japanese brand, and the shade is 13F (Tender Rose). Lemme see if it’s still ‘current’

    Hmmm not sure, but I found a link: http://www.menard-cosmetic.com/products/makeup/100.html

    I got it in a swap last year x
