REVIEW: Estee Lauder Eyeshadow Duo - Raisins

Hey Pixies! 

So since our last chat I have turned the wonderful age of 16! I really didn't want to be 16 as it means I actually have to get a job and do grown up things now! 
But one of the pros of having a birthday is of course the presents! I have been so lucky to have received so many wonderful gifts, I have not have one 'oh god just smile and pretend you like it!' so that's got to be some kind of miracle!
But one of my amazing gifts was this beautiful Estee Lauder eyeshadow duo (I know!) from my two friends Anna and Annie. I think I may have actually squealed when I opened it!

Ok so let's just start by saying it's AMAZING! I think I may be in love! The colours are just gorgeous and just go so well together and with so many other colours. 
The colours are a light shimmery pink and a purple/brown. Although you could think that the darker one may be difficult to wear it looks surprisingly great and can be layered or blended out to give just a hint of colour.
As you can see from the swatches, they are unbelievably pigmented and go onto the lid just as pigmented. I know that sounds silly but sometimes a swatch can come off very different to how the colour appears on the lid. 
They are also amazingly creamy for powder and blend like a dream. It is so easy to get a really gorgeous looking blended out look with these shadows. 
You can definitely feel the quality and they are the the best eyeshadows I have ever used, they even trump my Naked Palette shadows! 

So there was my quick review on the Raisins Eyeshadow Duo. I received quite a few makeup pieces for my birthday so a few more reviews may be coming up! Oh and current favourites is on the way but I had these photos ready and you should know how lazy I am! 

Thanks for Reading!x



  1. I would really love to try this duo but Estee Lauder is soooo out of my price range! Trying to find some mac dupes but I can't find anything online about it so I guess I will have to just take a guess lol. Thanks for the review, it was helpful (:

    1. Hi so sorry it's taken me so long to reply, I've just come back from holidaying! Yeah I was soo surprised when I received this as a present as I would never usually be able to afford it:) I think I remember Tanya Burr using a similar Mac shade called something like cranberry - but don't hold me to that! Though that did seem a lot brighter! Thanks for your comment and following! x
