Estee Lauder Double Wear cream shadow in Pink Pearl Swatches, Look, Review (discontinued)


My favorite texture and application for a cream shadow by far, I picked up this cream shadow at a CCO on a whim. It's thin and has a lovely slip, similar to MAC Paint Pots. The color may get a little lost on my skin tone but I imagine it would be quite brightening on a deeper skin. It does appear to be discontinued, but is available for a good price at All Cosmetics Wholesale (which is a reputable site to buy discontinued and discounted high end makeup).


It doesn't crease or fade during the day (over primer). It doesn't apply with a metallic finish (which can be harder to wear unless you have very smooth lids) so it's quite easy to slap on and go.


Here's a look I did, very basic and good for just about any situation (work, school, grocery shopping, staring at the wall) using Pink Pearl as the main eye product.


Sorry about the blurry face, guys. Not sure what all happened there, must have lost some quality in editing. But rest assured, the makeup I'm wearing doesn't magically do this. I used a light amount of Urban Decay matte shadow in Shakedown (discontinued, any of your favorite crease colors will do!) in the crease. Foundation Laura Geller Balance-n-Brighten in Porcelain over OCC Concealer in Y0. Lips are MAC lipstick in Syrup (Lustre), lashes have CK One mascara.
Let me know if you've tried this out and what you thought! Do you have any other favorites from the old Estee Lauder Double Wear cream shadows?
