Estée Lauder | Extravagant Gold Compact | Holiday 2010 | Photos + Swatches

This season, the limited edition Pure Color Five Color EyeShadow Palette is gilded in luxe metal shades to celebrate the extravagance and modern grace of the holiday season. The Pure Color Five Color EyeShadow Palette in Extravagant Gold is a delightfully festive sequence of illuminating shades that capture the smoldering allure of crisp, winter days and warm, snowy nights by the fire. Five shades of copper, gold and silver drape the eyes to highlight and define with three textures of matte, shimmer and metallic to create endless opportunities for playful and seductive eye looks. Housed in the new, iconic Pure Color golden mirrored compact with oversized Estée Lauder cartouche, this enticing palette is the perfect beauty accessory. Layer and combine the different shades and textures for the ideal intensity.

Glow: The colors are really pigmented and I love the shimmer in the gold & bronzy hues. I also like that the compact comes with everything you'd need, a mirror as well as applicators to create that perfect look on the go.

Glare: Honestly there isn't anything I'd change about this palette. I think the colors are really complimentary and have the perfect quality.

Would I Recommend It? Yes, I think this compact would make a great gift especially for the makeup savvy glow girl!

Overall Glam: This palette is ideal for the Fall/Holiday season. I'm a huge fan of neutrals, bronzes and golds when it comes to eyeshadow. These five shades are the perfect combination for creating a natural look with just the right amount of pop!

For a holiday look of modern drama and brilliant color, the Pure Color Extravagant Collection is available for a limited time at Estée Lauder counters nationwide and on www.esteelauder.com. The Pure Color Five Color EyeShadow Palette in Extravagant Gold currently retails for $42.00
