Estee Lauder Violet Underground Pure Color Eyeshadow palette for Fall 2012!

Estee Lauder has released a new eyeshadow palette for fall 2012 and it's called Violet Underground.

Like the palette released for summer 2012, this eyeshadow palette consist of 5 eyeshadow colors. The colors in Violet Underground are more vibrant and are perfect for the upcoming fall season. 

I thought the texture would be simular to the geleé powders like the highligher Modern Mercury that was released awhile back this year but I can tell you now that they are not identical or even remotely close at all.

The texture of the magenta, blue, pink and brown shades are similar, very soft, almost powdery and pigmented as well. They don't contain shimmer in them but they do have a gorgeous satiny sheen once applied.

Some people complained that it wasn't very long lasting but if you wear it underneath an eye primer it should last much longer on your eyelids.

The black color in the middle has a different texture compared to the other shades. It's definitely matte and a bit chalky in my opinion.

Here are some swatches to give you an idea of how the colors like like when applied on the skin.

I tried to create an eye look with this palette. I was surprised how wearable it was.

What I did: the magenta color in the inner 1/3 of the eyelid, the blue shade on the outer 1/3 of the eyelid, the brown color in the crease and the black color in the outer V.

I know these colors may not be for everyone but I personally love these bright jewel tone colors!

As the fall season approaches, it's time to wear some color again!

Anyone already tried or swatched these in stores? I would love to know your opinion on them as well.
