AMW Reviews: Estee Lauder Pure Color Stay-On Shadow Paint (Halo)

Happy Monday AMW friends!
I had a wonderful busy weekend!  How was yours?
Today, I will be sharing a paint shadow from Estee Lauder.  I haven't really explored much on the eyes for months now as I've been very comfortable with whatever I have!  Urban Decay Primer Potion has always been my number 1 eye primer while it's inexpensive counterpart is still Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer.

As for cream shadow base, I have my favorite MAC paintpots, Bobbi Brown Cream Shadows and a couple of shadow pencils!  Who would've thought after exploring Rustan's, I saw a tiny wonder from Estee Lauder counter?

Estee Lauder Pure Color Stay-On Shadow Paint
Shade: Halo
I always prefer to try natural colored paints as they are easier to work with especially for starters!

Estee Lauder says ---
Go from smoky to wildly intense with non-stop shadows lit with shimmer. Pure pigments in a creamy shadow. Light-emitting dimensional pearls create shimmer to high-metallic finishes. Finger paint it onto lids. Glides on quickly, wears infinitely—all day. 12-hour wear. Crease-free. Won’t fade.

AMW says ---
  • Glass pot.
  • Creamier in texture.  Very easy to blend.
  • Can help eyeshadow stay longer.
  • Shadows look more vibrant.
  • Does not crease on me.
  • Halo gives my lid an instant "lift".
  • Can be worn alone or applied underneath your choice of eyeshadow.
  • Halo can double up as a skin brightener.
    • If you prefer matte, the extra sparkles may not be your thing.
    • Price.
      Easy to glide on lid using fingertips or brush as it has a mousse-like texture.  Eyeshadow appears more vibrant and stays at least 2 hours longer than usual. 


      • Work fast using your fingertips for lighter shades and better to use a brush for more precision if you opted for darker shades.
      • Store in cool, dry place.
      • Don't worry about the "uneven" "bubbly" look upon purchase due to high temperature here in our country.
      • If you have extremely oily lids, use your favorite oil-control eye primer underneath and use this as an eyeshadow or a "tool" to create vibrant shadow looks!
      • Halo can be used as a face highlighter, apply a tiny amount on your cheek bones with a dabbing motion.
      • Store product in cool, dry place.
      • Instead of dipping your fingers directly onto the pot, use a brush or spatula to prevent contamination.
      Will I repurchase?

      To whom do I recommend this to?
      Eyeshadow wearers who prefers to use a cream shadow underneath.  Works better on users with dry or normal lids.

      Where to purchase and how much?
      At local Estee Lauder counters priced at Php 1,250.00 (approx $28.00).


      Swatch on arm: Halo

      I prefer to use my ring finger in application.
      This gives an almost natural effect with a tiny hint of sparkles. 

      Eyes appear brighter wearing only Halo.

      How do you find the new Stay-On Shadow under the Pure Color line?
      Do you think creating bright eyes is something you would like to achieve?
