Desert Dunes

Estee Lauder Desert Dunes Pure Color Envy Luxe Eyeshadow Quad (Refill) ($44.00 for 0.21 oz.) consists of two very light-toned matte shades, a mid-tone shimmery brown, and a fussy lil’ darker matte brown. It was troublesome to work with because the system was one of many worst eyeshadow formulation I’ve had the displeasure of testing in the previous couple of years–like unbelievably dangerous for contemporary eyeshadow occasions!
