Oh So Subtle


In my topsy-turvey world it is more than alright to use a highlighter as an eyeshadow and that is exactly what I have been doing these past couple of weeks!

The absolute gem of a lovely lady Vanity-Fashionista sent me the Estee Lauder illuminating powder gelee as a surprise birthday gift. Honestly you ought to have seen my jaw drop when I opened the package!



Isn't the palette just marvellous?



I am really liking the colour, the golden, peach, coppery pink wonderfulness. I must admit that the Estee Lauder counter is often the one that I happily skip past without a second thought so I am utterly charmed by this item as it would never have occurred to me to buy it. However, now that I do have it, I LOVE it.



I apply it with a light hand and it provides a subtle sheen not entirely unlike the sheen that silk stockings gives ones pins.



Thank you Vicky

  5. Nice, I kind of layered it on myself, but I think I'll try your method to just give an "awake" sheen to my eyes :)
