Estee Lauder Pure Color Gelee Powder Eye Shadow Cyber Silver - Review + Swatch + Eye Makeup Look

Hello Lovelies,

So last night, I decided that it was time to revamp my blog since I've not done much to it in a while. Changed the background theme, the font colors, added a banner (isn't it cute?), added a blogroll list with lovely bloggers (on the left side panel), edited my popular posts as weekly instead of all time, edited the "reactions," edited the linkwithin, and a few other things... So far I really like the simplicity of it. I hope you like it too.

This is another product that has been on the back burner for such a lonnnng time. This is an eyeshadow I actually purchased from the CCO a while back. This product is discontinued but you can still find a few retailers online that sell it for $24.00.

What Estee Lauder say about the product:
  • A first-ever techno tri-blend formula that's gel, powder and liquid in one.
  • Apply it dry for a smooth, molten metal finish.
    Use it wet for a hyper cyber effect to intensify the color and metallic shine.
  • Unique formula allows you to build the fantasy to the highest chromatic shine.
  • Sophisticated metallic finish looks beautiful on all skintones.
  • Maximized color impact.
  • Magnified vibrancy, clarity and dimension.
  • Amplified brilliance.
  • Color adheres velvety smooth, without creasing.
  • Blends easily.
  • Long-lasting. Stays color true. Won't fade.

  • Gorgeous, is all I gotta say. The picture tells it all. Even the way the eyeshadow is molded has an interesting look and luxe feel to it.
  • .03 oz or 9 g

  • Ok, so I have a handful of shimmery grey eyeshadows in my stash but if you look up close, Cyber Silver has some beautiful pink and teal shimmers in it too. Of course that's barely noticeable unless you look up close and actually take a good look at it. 

  • Awesome pigmentation and texture. 
  • Feels as smooth as butter
  • Applies and blend effortlessly
  • Fairly shimmery and pigmented when applied dry. More intense and metallic when applied wet. 
  • Last all day with a good primer. However, without a primer I definitely noticed fading and creasing in about 4 hours of wear. 

Final Thought

Granted that silver is not a unique eyeshadow color, it is definitely one of the better silver I have in my stash in terms of pigmentation and buttery soft formula. It still needs the help of a primer though. Would I recommend? Yes, if you don't mind the price tag. Considering that this is discontinued, you may be able to get it for cheaper if you look around.

My rating: 9/10.


Now the eye makeup look...

Products used for this look
  • Cyber Silver on the lid
  • NYX Velvet Rope eyeshadow palette: dark purple on crease outer V and blended into the crease, medium pink on crease, and light pink on brow bone.
  • Physicians Formula Eye Booster Ultra Black on upper lash line
  • Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On eye pencil Binge on the waterline
  • MAC Pearlglide Intense Eyeliner Designer Purple on lower lash line.
I really love how this look turned out. It's colorful without looking over the top and looks very flirty and feminine.

What colors would you pair silver with?

Wishing you all a lovely weekend :)


  1. Eh I always wonder why brands discontinue good products :T
    Love how you paired it with purples!

    1. IDK, perhaps it didn't sell as well as they would have liked. Or perhaps they're just working on something new and better.

  2. Gah, if only it wasn't discontinued! I still need to get my booty over to a CCO and see what it's all about. And THANK YOU for including me in your blogroll! You are too sweet. I love the new look of your blog, it is very delicate and pretty!

    1. I haven't been at the CCO in like forever! I'm itching to check out new stuff too You're welcome. Hope it brings more traffic or followers your way :)

  3. LOVE the banner! perfect for spring! :) I also LOVE the pigmentation on these. i wish i got my hands on them

    1. It does indeed look springy though it was not my intention, lol. I just liked it. You never know you might just accidentally find one or two.

  4. I remember the color gelee collection from Estee Lauder and the blush? bronzer? that was in the collection. Maybe I'll pick up a few things next time I go out to my CCO!

    The looks is gorgeous! :D I love purple grey looks! And I'm liking the new website! :)


    1. Thank you hun. I never checked out the collection when it first came out lol. I'm limiting my purchases on high-end products but will buy if I can get a good deal on it.

  5. I love the look you did - so pretty! I remeber when these came out, I think they were just to expensive and "colorful" for the target Estee Lauder customer. Our gain if we can find them at the CCO! And I really like your new blog layout - great job!

    1. Thank you. I can't complain. I love finding high-end makeup for less.

  6. Ooh I love your new layout! You definitely did a great job with it! Cyber Silver looks so gorgeous. I love how it looks both wet and dry! Plus you did a great job with your eye look! I really like the colors that you used! By the way, I really appreciate it that you added my blog to your blogroll. I was really surprised when I saw it! Thank you! You are so sweet!

    1. Thank you. Girl, you write awesome comprehensive reviews! Everyone should check out your blog and follow you for real.

  7. That eye look is just stunning!
