Estée Lauder Pure Color Gelée Eye Palette In 01 Bronze Sands [Cyber Metallic]

Before I move onto showcasing items from Estée Lauder’s Fall collection, I would love to share some quick swatches (including comparisons) and thoughts about their Pure Color Gelée Eye Palette in 01 Bronze Sands [Cyber Metallic]. I picked this up when I was in KL a few months ago and it retails at RM152.

This palette contains five seductive summer shadows – a palette of super metallic shades to highlight, define and dramatize your eyes. Can be applied dry or wet to intensify.

Swatches below taken under natural day light without flash – swatched dry on dry arm without primer.

All the shades are very highly pigmented and concentrated. Each swatch provides true and intense colour payoff – I reckon there’s no need to apply wet in this case.

Texture of all the shades in this palette is beyond amazing. They are smooth and has a soft, creamy touch. Very much like the MAC Extra Dimension Eyeshadows and MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinishes – I have pulled out a few for comparisons.

If you are wondering, they are also very similar to Guerlain Cruel Gardenia Météorites and Laura Mercier Rose Rendevous Face Illuminator but creamier.

Having the Estée Lauder Pure Color Gelée Eye Palette in 01 Bronze Sands [Cyber Metallic] is like having a whole bunch of goodness in one palette. But having said that, I have not fully explored all the shades. Because all five shades have a highly metallic finish, I don’t use more than 2 shades at any one time.

My favourite go-to shades from this palette is the bronze, brown and teal. I experienced very little fall out with these eyeshadows and they lasted very well throughout the day.

All in all, very impressed with the texture and intensity of this palette.

Thank you for looking.

  1. I really really love this palette – I went all over our counters looking for these and was soooooo disappointed that these did not make it to Singapore. The shades are really nice …

  2. They look so smooth and have such a glorious finish! Sad that EL doesn’t bring their summer collection in because this would be lovely to own for all the glorious metallic neutrals!
