Estee Lauder Pure Color Illuminating Powder Gelee Fall 2011 Swatch & Review

This is the description from the site about this powder:

” A new “tribrid” system of liquid, powder and gel revolutionizes makeup application and wear. This first-of-a-kind, “multi-powder” formula creates a theatrical blur of shimmer on the skin when applied dry and a fierce flush of color when applied wet. The unique suspension of golden pigments and pearls float on top of the skin, resulting in a truly unique sensorial experience for skin. The futuristic powder is flexible and uses a luminosity boosting complex that makes the complexion appear perfectly smooth, sexy and glowing with a polished finish.

My thoughts:

I really like this, it feels like a silky powder, not a gel consistency at all , it is gorgeous as you can see by the pictures.

I was afraid because of the light pink tone, it wouldn't work well with my skin tone, but it does , I use it as a highlighter dry and have even used it on my eyes for a pop of highlight, and use it wet for a dramatic look on the eye.

The little sponge applicator works too ( you know so many products come w cheap applicators that don't work )

I wouldn't recommend using it wet on your face, unless you are going for a very dramatic look., like to a Halloween party ;)

This is worth a look if you are near an Estee Lauder counter. It is very lovely in person!!

It retails for $40.00
