“When it comes to color, there are no limits. I like to have freedom. Metallic makeup does that.”
Tom Pecheux, Creative Makeup Director, Estée Lauder
This Fall, imagine an incredible combination of the highest reflective shine and intensely desirable color to make eyes, lips and nails smolder – introducing The Metallics, a NEW Pure Color Collection from Estée Lauder. The Metallics uses a variety of unique reflective finishes to bring a new level of sophistication to multi-dimensional color.
SHINY!! Who doesn’t want some shine in their makeup life sometimes, right? I have three pieces from the Estée Lauder The Metallics New Pure Color Collection to show you: a Pure Color High Intensity Lip Lacquer, a Limited Edition Pure Color Vivid Shine Lipstick, and a Limited Edition Pure Color Vivid Shine Nail Lacquer:
Let’s start with the Estée Lauder Limited Edition Pure Color Vivid Shine Nail Lacquer($25 CDN) in Chocolate Foil:
I got Marky to model Chocolate Foil for us, and of course the obligatory whining started:
BUT after I applied Chocolate Foil, she stopped whining! SHE LIKED IT haha! Why? I think for one, this is just ONE COAT of the Estée Lauder Limited Edition Pure Color Vivid Shine Nail Lacquer in Chocolate Foil-can you believe it? It dried really quickly to a hardened finish Marky said, which she really like about it. It seemed like it was more durable of a finish to her, and she actually asked me if there was a grey colour, because she really liked the formula. This was our first experience with an Estee Lauder Nail Polish and both of us were quite amazed at the great quality! There is a streakiness to it as there is with most metallic finish polishes, but if that didn’t seem to bother the whiny redhead, so I guess it all depends on what you like!
Lips next! First swatches of the Estée Lauder Pure Color High Intensity Lip Lacquer in Pink Vinyl and the Limited Edition Pure Color Vivid Shine Lipstick in Hot Lava:
Pink Vinyl is a really pretty dusty rose shade with a lot of shine! And Hot Lava is autumn in a lipstick-a gorgeous warm red with some gold and red sparkle. Hot Lava has that sweet fig scent that Estée Lauder lipsticks have, but it’s seems really toned down from what I remember and dissipates quite quickly.
Estée Lauder Pure Color High Intensity Lip Lacquer in Pink Vinyl($26 CDN) on my lips:
This is actually my first Estée Lauder Lip Gloss ever?-yeah pretty sure about that-but WOW is it ever NICE! Pigmented, smooth, moisturizing, not sticky and lasts a good 2 hours on my lips! I never new a lip gloss could be so pretty and feel so good!
And now Estée Lauder Limited Edition Pure Color Vivid Shine Lipstick in Hot Lava($32 CDN) close up so you can see the sparkles in the sun:
I love Estée Lauder lipsticks, and I don’t know WHY for the love of Pete I keep forgetting about them! They are so light feeling, and last FOREVER on my lips. I get a good 5 going on 6 hours of wear with no feathering or bleeding at all. And this colour-it’s like a warm red apple in the fall sunshine! It’s gorgeous! Not a hard red to wear at all, so if you are red-shy, Hot Lava would be a great one to start out with that’s for sure!
There are also some Estée Lauder Pure Color Instant Intense EyeShadow Trios that have a molten metal, liquid-like texture in the collection, so look out for those as well! I know I will!
The Estée Lauder The Metallics New Pure Color Collection is available at all Estée Lauder counters across the country right now! You really gotta check it out!
I don’t know WHY I keep forgetting about Estée Lauder makeup. I think I still carry the thought that it’s an old lady brand for some reason, and it really isn’t! And besides-I AM AN OLD LADY HAHAHA! 👵
Do you stereotype makeup brands as well? Which ones do you think are too old for you ?
