With Christmas right around the corner you might be in full on Christmas shopping stress. If you’re still looking for a gift for someone who loves makeup then I’ve got you covered with this Estée Lauder beauty from their Christmas collection.Inside the stunning festive box is the limited edition Color Portfolio Set which is a makeup palette consisting of a whopping 42 colors. It doesn’t just contain eyeshadows but also blushes, highlighters, bronzers and lip colors. What I love about this palette is that it doesn’t just contain great shades for festive looks but also six different instructions to the respective makeup style. They range from a classic sexy look to warmer bronzed and safari style makeup looks. Each of these looks has a palette of colors designated to them in the palette which are marked with the name of the look. I will now quickly introduce you to each of them.First however I’d like to show you these six colors in the center of the palette. This part marks the face section of the Color Portfolio Set. Here you’ll find two glittering highlighters, two rosy blushes and two golden bronzers. The various look instructions will suggest the matching face sculpting shades to go with the makeup look you chose.The first two styles are called Safari and Playful. As you can see by looking at the colors of Safari on the left it is a rather sultry, daring and adventurous look with bold eyes. I especially like the striking emerald green eyeshadow in this palette. Quick side note. The color at the bottom of each look is always the lip color. Playful is a radiant, relaxed and confident look which comes across as very flirty with its soft and bold pinks and stunning lip color.Bronzed is inspired by Estée Lauder’s Bronze Goddess collection and consists of shimmering nude to golden brown shades which result in a lovely sun kissed summer look all year round. One of my favourites besides Playful is Azure which is a mesmerising blue smokey eye. Isn’t that azure tone just breathtaking?Bohemian helps you unleash your inner hippie with a collection of neutral nude shades and a bold red lip. I will definitely be using the sparkling gold tone in my Christmas makeup this year.Bordeaux is another stunner with its ultra-feminine and succulent pink and plum shades. This palette creates a sassy and sensual look which is perfect for date night. I fell in love with that purple metallic eyeshadow instantly!
The Color Portfolio Set is definitely a great last minute Christmas gift idea for a friend or even yourself. 😉
