Estee Lauder Extravagant Gold!

I attended a Estee Lauder bloggers event a while back, but it was way too early to be even thinking about Christmas therefore I waited for a more appropriate day like today, December to be precise to tell you about it.

The Christmas collection is filled with plums, berry's and golds which is on par with the season.



The nail polish looked fabulous at a first glance, but now I don't think it's that special.

The lipstick 'Extravagant Berry' is frosted with gold glitter on the outer layer, pigmented, pretty and smells quite fruity. The lipgloss is also a similar colour with tiny specks of multicoloured glitter.
One problem though, despite the festive season these colours are never going to get love from me as I much prefer more natural tones.



The standout for the collection for me is the 'Extravagant gold eyeshadow compact', it's certainly loved by me. It looks quite boring but the colours are beautifully pigmented and apply much more interesting than they look in the palette. There are shimmer and matte colours and this palette can take you from day to night, it's great to have on the go and the massive mirror inside makes it ideal for that purpose.


Here are the colours swatched!


Look how similar some of the colours are to some of my favourite Mac eyeshadows ('Amber Lights', 'Woodwinked' and 'Brun'. The palest one looks like 'Shroom', and the one next to it looks like 'Goldmine'.


Furthermore this Christmas Estee Lauder are offering the the professional makeup artist colour collection for £49 (worth £315) with any fragrance purchase. See HERE!

Have you stocked up on anything from Estee Lauder recently?

I love the Extravagant Berry lipstick but I can't see any glitter in the swatch :(

Saimese said...

I'm surprised that you didn't think the nailpolish was all that, which is a disappointment because it caught my eye in your post. I find it weird how the shimmer in the lipstick is just on the outside - a good thing in my opinion because I wouldn't want shimmer like that on my lips. The eyeshadow swatches are great! Amber Lights is such a close match!

The glitter on the lipstick is soo pretty. Too bad its not a more wearable color. Those MAC eyeshadows are such good dupes!

those lip colors look gorgeous!

@Meowcake There is no glitter in the lipstick when swatched, it's just for decoration on the outer layer.

Muhsine said...

@Saimese I loved the nail polish at first, but it needs about 4 coats and doesn't look that stunning for me to continue loving it. x

Katie Renee said...

Very gorgeous holiday colors but taking a look at your swatches, I think 'wow I don't even need any of those eye shadows because I already have them' lol It's not that surprising to see similar colors since they are really the same company, it was kind of inevitable I guess :) Love the lipstick though, I need to be bolder and try a color like that! :) Amazing post as always! xoxo

I remember making a note about this palette when it was making the rounds, but after seeing your MAC dupes, I think I 'll pass...
Great shades, but one can use only so many neutrals!!!
