Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess 'Island Oasis' EyeShadow Palette!

This palette has been on my most wanted list for about 3 weeks now, so today I toddled down to the shops to buy it, just in time for my holibobs in a few weeks and I have to say, I am so glad I did as I have not been disappointed in the slightest with it.
The colours are so beautiful, it really is an exceptional palette – perfectly put together and even more perfect for the warm summer weather we’re getting. I can’t pick out a favourite colour in this palette because they’re all equally as stunning; but what is even stranger for me is that I can’t find a colour that I don’t like/don’t think would work for me as I can honestly see myself wearing all of them (not at the same time though) on many occasions!!

In fact, this is one of the few eye shadows that I’ll be taking with me when I go on holiday (in the interest of travelling light) because it holds 6 shadows anyway so hopefully I won’t need to take *that* many more shades to give me enough variety!
The swatches are fairly accurate in how much they show the colour and the shimmer of the shadows, (even though I have used the flash on the camera) as they shimmer perfectly on the skin in ‘real life’ without the flash being necessary to see it... and some of the shades are almost metallic in their appearance – something I really love in an eye shadow, it has to be said.

The palette retails at £31 and can be bought at House of Fraser, which I think is very reasonable (actually, I think it’s great, great value) for 6 perfectly pigmented, beautifully coloured, high quality shadows.
