Estee Lauder Cyber Eyes Pure Color Eye Shadows and Intense Kajal Eye Liners

For those of you that absolutely loved Estee Lauder's Modern Mercury Collection (Fall 2011), you will just love the consistency of the Pure Color Gelee Powder Eyeshadows from the Cyber Eyes Collection.

The collection featured 6 shades of eyeshadow, a metallic eyeshadow that can be used wet or dry:

  • Cyber Copper (Shade 01)
  • Cyber Pink (Shade 02)
  • Cyber Lilac (Shade 03)
  • Cyber Silver (presumed to be Shade 04)
  • Cyber Green (Shade 05)
  • Cyber Teal (Shade 06)
Clockwise from bottom left: Cyber Lilac, Cyber Green, Cyber Pink, Cyber Teal, Cyber Copper
and 4 shades of Intense Kajal eyeliners:
  • Blackened Plum
  • Blackened Black
  • Blackened Sapphire
  • Electric Teal
Blackened Plum

Blackened Sapphire

Electric Teal

I purchased 5 of the 6 shadows and 3 of the 4 eyeliners.

I found the eyeshadows to be absolutely wonderful and the color payoff excellent.  I did use them with a shadow primer.  I had very minimal fallout but I am used to the texture of these shadows as they are quite similar to the Sephora Prisma Chrome shadows.  Each cost $24 for .9g of product while the Sephora product cost $15 for 3.5g (personally a better bargain).  However, I found the EL shadows just a tad smoother in consistency.  Of the 5 I purchased, my favorites are Cyber Pink, Cyber Teal and Cyber Lilac.  Cyber Green reminded me a lot of M.A.C.'s Solar Bits in Black Ore as it looks more to be a black with gold flecks in it.

Estee Lauder says:

Pure Color Cyber Eyes exclusive by Tom Pecheux. Creates cyber metallic smoky effects.

Color so metallic, it's futuristic.
A first-ever techno tri-blend formula that's gel, powder and liquid in one.

Versatile and multi dimensional.
Create several looks from one shade.

  • - Apply it dry for a smooth, molten metal finish.
  • - Use it wet for a hyper cyber effect to intensify the color and metallic shine.
Innovative soft-touch shadow texture and sponge-tip applicator make it easy to sweep up color and apply with one stroke.
  • - Unique formula allows you to build the fantasy to the highest chromatic shine.
  • - Sophisticated metallic finish looks beautiful on all skintones.

I found the eyeliners to be lovely.  For some reason, Blackened Sapphire seemed to be a bit more resistant to me at first, i.e., it didn't glide on as smoothly as the other 2 shades.  It did start to get softer as I used it more.  Blackened Plum and Electric Teal are my favorites.  I had not seen these shades from EL before in eyeliner pencils.  However, I do find Electric Teal to be quite similar in shade to L'Oreal's Infallible Never Fail Eyeliner in Teal.  Each liner retails for $20 for 1.6g of product and the darker shades are great to use for a unique smokey eye look.

Estee Lauder says:

Creamy pencil packs intense color impact. 

Rich, deeply pigmented color.

Glides on velvety smooth. Blends easily.

Apply on inner rim of eyes for a smouldering effect.

Use as liner along lashline and softly smudge over lids to intensify the smoky look
