Estee Lauder Sensuous Rose Pure Color Blush

Estee lauder Sensuous Rose Pure Color Blush ($28.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a pale pink-beige with a soft, satin finish. It has subtle warm undertones, but it’s just barely warm. I almost wanted to describe it as coral, but I think the muted quality of the color makes it something else–that’s where the beige tones come in. Tarina Tarantino Feather is pinker. MAC Ladyblush is a bit darker (and a cream product).

Beautiful Beginnings with Estee Lauder

Beautiful Beginnings with Estee Lauder

What was the first Estee Lauder product you ever tried?  Did it pave way for a real romance or did it put you off the brand entirely?  What was the first product you purchased?  Did you love it? Hate it? Still own it?

my answer:  My first Estee Lauder products were mascaras! That’s kind of a weird way to start using a brand, I think, particularly because Estee Lauder isn’t as known for their mascaras as other brands (like Dior and Diorshow).  After that, I tried some of their skin care, which I did like, though sometimes the scents of their skin care range can be too heavy for me.  I really like what Estee Lauder has been doing recently — the products are stellar with some fantastic colors and ranges.
