Estee Lauder can literally do no wrong at the moment. With Tom Pechaux's non-stop assault on their colour palettes, Lauder have transmogrefied themselves from 'posh old lady brand' to a brand that has girls & women racing to counters to snatch up the latest limited edition collections.
The latest Lauder/Pechaux offing is quite vast. There are 45 new lipstick shades & 16 new nail lacquer shades hopping their merry way into the Pure Colour range, from 28th February. I've picked out some of my faves from the new ranges...
Pure Colour Nail Lacquer
In the lacquer ranges, there will be 8 new additions to the permanent line and 8 limited shades. Pictured above is 'Nude Attitude' from the permanent line and 'Chocolate Crave', which is a limited shade. The chocolate shade is exactly like melted chocolate and I half expected it to smell like chocolate when I opened the bottle. Unfortunately it didn't, but it is still quite dreamy. In fact, the 2 colours sat side-by-side kind of remind me of Bailey's ice cream, with the glass bottles like ice cubes. Yum!
Next on my hit list will be Mega Fuchia, Violet Diva and Wild Blue.
Pure Colour Lipstick (Long Lasting & Crystal)
There is nothing about Lauder lipsticks I don't like. I love the gloss sticks, the crystals, the double wear.. I could go on. Pictured below is Melon (LL) Crystal Baby (C) Blazing Sun (C) and Crystal Rose (C).
For those who have yet been unable to get hold of Crystal Baby, you will be pleased to hear that there are 2 or 3 shades that are quite similar being introduced to the Crystal line. The Crystal lipsticks are so easy to wear, moisturising & sheer.
The packaging of these are worth the £18 price tag alone. They are like ornaments; absolutely gorgeous!
