Estee Lauder X Violette Dangereuse Collection Packaging
The eye shadows are packaging in a metallic gold case.
Moreover, the compact’s lid corresponds to the colors inside. The picture on the lid looks like fabrics blowing in the wind. In fact, it reminds me of the introduction to a femme fatale movie. For example, there is a shadow of a woman in the background, and the sheer fabric is blowing in front of her. As a result, the woman looks mysterious, and dangerous. Also, she is very glamorous.
Estee Lauder X Violette Dangereuse Collection La Dangereuse 8 Shade Eye Shadow Palette by Violette
To begin with, the eight color eye shadow palette I purchased is Amour, Amour. It is a burgundy and pink shade palette. I chose this palette because I think it is the more wearable of the two. The other palette, Blue Dahlia, is very beautiful. However, how often do I wear blue eye shadow? Although, writing this, I decided to purchase the Blue Dahlia Palette. so stay tuned for another review! Anyhow, I love the textures of the shadows, and the shades of Amour, Amour. In addition, the eye shadows have bold pigments. There are a lot of looks you can make with these eight shades.
The top row of La Dangereuse Amour, Amour
To start with, the first shade is a metallic pink shade with a sparkly finish. I love that you can wear this shade on your eyelids. Also, you can apply it lightly and wear it under your brow bone, and on the inner corners of your eyes.
Next, shade 2 is a deep burgundy shade with a matte finish. First, I love this shade as a transition shade in the crease of your eyes. Also, wear it in the outer corners of your eyes for more definition. Furthermore, you can smoke the burgundy out. Finally, I love this shade as a liner. Therefore, I like wearing it on my lover lash lines.
Third, is a burnt orange shade with a pearl finish. Now, if you want to be daring, I would wear the deep burgundy shade on my eye lids, and use the burnt orange shade in my crease. Also, I love the burnt orange shade on my lower lash lines as an eye liner. Also, you can wear it on the outer corners of your eyes and smoke it out.
Finally, shade number four is a copper color with a pearl finish. One way I would wear number four is on the center of my eye lids. I also love it on the outer corners of the eyes. Last, I like it on my lower lash lines.
The bottom row of La Dangereuse Amour, Amour
The first shade is a medium-deep pink shade with a sparkly finish. First, this is gorgeous on your eye lids. Next, I like it on the outer corners of your eyes. Furthermore, it looks great as an eye liner.
Next, the second shade is a coppery reddish-gold shade with a sparkly finish. This is a beautiful shade applied lightly on your brow bone. Also, I love it as an eye lid shade. Furthermore, wear it in the center of your eyelids, to make them pop.
The third shade on the bottom is a burgundy red shade with a pearl finish. This is another gorgeous metallic burgundy shade that looks great on the eyelids. I would use the burgundy matte shade in the crease for this look. Also, pop some in the center of your eyes, or apply it lightly under your brow bone.
Finally, the last shade on row two is a deep, dark burgundy that looks almost like a dark plum shade with a matte finish. Absolutely war this shade as a liner for a dramatic look. Also, use it as a crease shade. Last, use it to accent and define the outer corners of your eyes.
Estee Lauder X Violette Dangereuse Collection Violette Pure Color Envy Sculpting Face Trio in Swirling Passions
This face trio has two blushers and one highlighter. However, the first blush, a powdery peach shade with a satin finish, looks more like an eye shadow base than a blush.
Although, the second blush, a gorgeous pink shade with a satin finish, is more like it! At least when you apply the pink blusher, it looks like blush!
Last, the highlighter is a peachy-gold shade with a pearl finish. I would use the pink blush on the apples of my cheeks. Then, I would put the highlighter on the high points of my face. For example, I would wear the highlighter on my cheekbones, the bridge of my nose, my Cupid’s bow, my chin, and on my brow bones.
The only thing I could use shade one would be to mix it with the pink shade for a lighter flush. I am a little disappointed with the first shade because it isn’t going to shape anyone’s face. So, if you can tell me what to do with it, I’d love to hear from you!
