Estee Lauder Shells Pure Color Eyeshadow Duo

Hi!

Sorry for the week long break in posting there it was unexpected and very stressful (husband was in hospital) but now I am back to regularly scheduled programming. ­čśë

Estee Lauder has eleven new Pure Color Eyeshadow Duos, two of them being limited edition shades.

The one I have for you today is called Shells.

Shells features a pale lavender pink eyeshadow with very slight pink shimmer on the left and a mauve/purple with small silver sparkle on the right.

Both shadows had a nice soft texture and pretty good pigmentation. The darker one felt a bit less chalky and was more opaque. Very nice color combination though!

Overall:

I would be interested in seeing what Amethyst and Waves look like in person, as those look like colors I could get behind! While I like these colors and shadows, I do think they are pretty darn pricey for just two colors.

Availability: Estee Lauder counters and website, select department stores

Pricing: $30.00

What do you think? Would you fork over 30 smackeroos for two eyeshadows?
