Review: Esteé Lauder Violet Underground Collection.

Esteé Lauder Violet Underground Palette – £40 *Esteé Lauder Violet Underground Lipstick in Black Cassis – £19.50 *

When I saw the latest Esteé Lauder collection, Violet Underground, I knew I had to have it, although it’s completely out of my comfort zone. 

Both the palette and the lipstick shown are not shades I’d usually go for, I don’t even own anything like this! But with Autumn and Winter at our doorsteps, I thought I’d opt for some fitting shades for once and so, the vampy look was born!
I actually really like the dark lips, I thought my boyfriend would be horrified but he commented on them saying they were “different” which is a good thing. 
I absolutely adore the eye makeup, which was done using the more “me” colours of the palette – a gorgeous neutral, satin beige (bottom left) and a rich, chocolate brown (top right) and I think this will become an evening look for me. As I don’t wear eyeliner, I rely on eyeshadow and mascara to open my eyes and these shades together really do make eyes stand out. 

Although this look isn’t something I’d usually go for, I love how Autumnal and different it is! I reckon I’ll be whipping out the Black Cassis lipstick once again… what do you think?
