Yay!!! Estée Lauder just launched a whole bunch of gorgeous treats. 39 shades of new Pure Color Lipstick, 16 new Nail Lacquers, and an awesome new limited edition Pure Color Orange Crush (two shadows and a gloss). I’ve been trying out a few things from the collection, and I’m starting today with…
Pure Color Nail Lacquer-Limited Collection (in “Perfect Storm” and “Wild Blue”) Blurb: Turn your fingertips into fashion statements with a wardrobe of sensational shades to add definition, polish, and style to your fingertips. Designed by Tom Pecheux, world-renowned makeup artist and Estée Lauder Creative Makeup Director. Tom combined today's top trends with timeless classics-all the colors he prefers for photo shoots and fashion shows. Formulated with True Vision™ technology to transform ordinary color and make it extraordinary. Rich, glossy with an intense, mirror-like high shine. Fast-drying. Long-wearing. High-pigment, high-impact brilliance in 3 effects: creme, pearl and shimmer. Resists chipping-even in water. High coverage that won't fade, dull or streak, even in strong sunlight. Specially designed brush shape makes application incredibly easy.
Sigh! These are just fantastic. I love them both, and I think I’ll probably be moseying over to the Estée counter at the mall for a couple more bottles. Both the shimmer and cream formulas go on beautifully, cover well and resist chipping and fading.
“Perfect Storm” is a stunning, dark, charcoal with a beautiful shimmer. At first glance, it looked quite a bit like “Wild Storm” (from a previous collection), but it’s absolutely not. “Perfect Storm” is smoldering, dramatic and very sophisticated (in some lighting, it almost looks like a shimmery black). I got a ton of compliments when I wore this, and I couldn’t stop looking at my hands.
“Wild Blue” on the other hand, is a vibrant, cornflower blue. It looks much brighter in the bottle, but dries to a cooler shade. It’s fun and edgy, but still very grown up – and surprisingly flattering. I can’t wait to sport a Wild Blue pedicure when sandal season comes!
If you’re pondering anything from this collection, now is the time to visit the website. There’s an awesome gift with purchase (photo below) available (as well as the monthly sweepstakes). Estée Lauder is also available at fine department stores.
Have a great week everyone!
