Luxury make up is one of the nicest things to receive at Christmas, and Estée Lauder is a great option for pretty packing and great quality product at a pretty reasonable price. This Estée Lauder Pure Color EyeShadow Palette Topaz Mosaic* is £35 from Harrods and offers a great mix of neutral shades with the option to take them from day to night with the the gorgeous plummy-brown shade.
The palette consists of four satin shades and one metallic. These orange toned shades really make blue eyes stand out, but if you have brown eyes I would recommend the Pure Colour Palette in Blue Dahlia. The only shade in this palette I would change is the bright yellow in the middle for a paler, champange colour which would work better as an inner corner crease, centre of the lid highlight or brow highlight as I find the yellow just a bit too overstated to work with for these areas - example below.
Did you know that Estée Lauder do lots of other funky powder compacts? They got gold ones with signs of the Zodiac and a few other designs, and there's even a Christmas Bear perfume compact exclusive to Harrods - check them out here.
