Now, take a look at Estée Lauder's Pure Color Five Color EyeShadow Palette in Desert Heat ($48) - the way it really looks. It's not brand new, but is featured on the fall collection displays at department stores.
Although Desert Heat isn't new for fall (unless my research and questions of Estée Lauder led me to an incorrect conclusion), it's worth your attention. It was front and center at my closest Nordstrom. It should be on the new Estée Lauder display at your favorite counter. See what you think!
The moral of this story is that Internet photos of makeup can be misleading. Sometimes, unfortunately, they tease us to purchase things that aren't nearly as nice as they look online. At other times, we miss amazing colors simply because they didn't photograph well. Desert Heat deserves better.
