Estee Lauder Color Edit holiday set

As I told you in a previous post estee-lauder-modern-muse-le-rouge  I recevied from my Santa the Estee Lauder Color Edit holiday set (I've unboxed it on Periscope, the video is here : katch.me/adrianatone/esteelaudercoloureditset). If I bought a perfume or a perfume set, I would receive the set at a very convenient price. So I decided to  buy a set of 4 mini size perfumes by Estee Lauder : Beautiful, Pleasures, Modern Muse and Modern Muse Le Rouge (my Santa didn't want to receive the money for the set, giving it to me as a gift).

Many of the products in the set are limited edition but I saw a similar set here in Romania at Debehams beauty therefore I thought I would show my set to you and write my first impressions on some of the products (there will be reviews for all the products in the set on the blog) to help you decide should you want to buy the Romanian version.

The set included : a Deluxe Eye Palette with 12 Eyeshadows and 2 Pure Color Blushes, 3 Full-Size Pure Color Lipsticks, 2 Pure Color Lip Glosses, a Sumptuous Extreme Mascara (full-size), a Gentle Eye Makeup Remover (full-size), an Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II mini size,a Revitalizing Supreme Creme, one Limited Edition All Over Shimmer, a Modern Muse Eau de Parfum Spray 4ml mini, one Red Cosmetic Case and one Red Travel Case.

I wanted to show you the photos and swatches for the palettes, lipsticks and lipglosses and tell you my impressions from the first use.
The Deluxe Eye Palette with 12 EyeShadows and 2 Pure Color Blushes :
It contains a good mixture of nudes and bolder colours for day and evening make-up looks. There are mostly shimmer eyeshadows but a few are matte. The pigmentation is generally good, only 3 or 4 eyeshadows are less pigmented. They are fine milled, buttery soft and easy to blend and work with. Here are some swatches below (left to right) :
The Limited Edition All Over Shimmer :
Gorgeous colour. Personally I would use it as a blush , applied sparingly. For a very light skin this shade is too pigmented. For a medium to tan skin I think it would look great in the summer time. Pigmented, easy to blend and work with.
The Pure Color Lip Glosses in Pink Innocence, Wired Copper :
Not very pigmented, slightly sticky with a strong sweet scent. 
Two shades : Pink Innocence, Wired Copper. 
The Pure Color Lipsticks in Pure Parfait, Rubellite and Tiger Eye :
Soft, creamy and moisturizing, pleasant on the lips. Last around 3-4 hours.
 Pure Parfait :
Rubellite :
Tiger Eye :
The set I saw in Debenhams beauty was this : 
It contains another Deluxe Eye Palette with 12 eyeshadows (slightly diffrent shades, but not very different); the Limited Edition All Over Shimmer is gone, being replaced with a palette containing three glosses. The Sumptuous Extreme Mascara is the same, so is the mini Modern Muse Eau de Parfum Spray, Revitalizing Supreme Creme, Gentle Eye Makeup Remover. There is a mini nail dark red nail polish and a mini black eye pencil. There is no Cosmetic Case. This set costs in Debenhams beauty 470 ron.

I will certainly be back with reviews on these products but I hope my post is helpful to you if you can still find the set in stores. Until next time,


  1. Răspunsuri
    1. Me too. It's expensive but if you want to try several products from EL it's worth it.

  2. Sa folosesti cu drag produsele. Arata foarte bine :). Am vazut setul si la Sephora, dar nu era complet parca si destul de scump (vreo 50p lei). Enjoy your Estee Lauder blockbuster :*

    1. Da, la noi se gasesc mini seturi care sunt foarte scumpe. De ex am vazut eu mascara si demachiantul pe la 1 milion jumate sau 2 nu mai stiu.. Doar 2 produse. De asta chiar merita setul asta. Este o valoare foarte buna pentru cate produse sunt. Multumesc mult. Kisses!


I would love to hear from you
