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.

Estee Lauder Violet Underground Collection for Fall 2012


Estee Lauder Violet Underground Collection for Fall 2012

Introducing a new multi-dimensional, limited edition trend collection for 2012, Estée Lauder Pure Color Violet Underground. Inspired by multiple cultures, styles and textures, this collection is the ultimate fusion of high style and street chic. The makeup in Pure Color Violet Underground takes glam rock to a new dimension with a fantastical aesthetic revolution of deep, vibrant violet and fuchsia tones.

Estée Lauder translates the drama of underground style fused with the luxury of couture onto eyes and lips saturated in a jewel-toned palette. Cognac and bordeaux combined with neon brights in scarlet and crimson create a mysterious palette rich in sensuality. Pure Color Violet Underground uses contrasting high lacquered intensified pigments and matte hues to create rich dramatic dimension. Together the strong pigments collide against a beautifully radiant satin complexion to give the overall look a modern yet dramatic high-fashion feel that any woman can try.

Estee Lauder Cosmic Pink Pure Color Sequin Finish Lip Gloss

Estee Lauder Cosmic Pink Pure Color Sequin Finish Lip Gloss ($22.50 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a brightened medium pink with subtle yellow undertones and a cool white shimmer. The only gloss that seemed remotely similar was MAC Preppy, which is much, much sheerer and less vibrant. NYX Rose has a similar finish, though it’s a lipstick, and is a much more muted of a pink.

Estee Lauder Violet Rain Pure Color Sequin Finish Lip Gloss

Estee Lauder Violet Rain Pure Color Sequin Finish Lip Gloss ($22.50 for 0.20 fl. oz.*) is a vibrant, nearly neon fuchsia-pink with iridescent fuchsia sparkle. It’s redder and more shimmered compared to Milani Flashy. MAC Gimme That! is redder, lighter, less shimmered. The color is opaque and extremely heavy in sparkle.  You can feel the sparkle a little bit, but it’s not too noticeable or gritty.  Because of the overall brightness and vibrancy of Violet Rain, it should complement most skin tones–it’s going to give you lots of oomph, pop, and contrast whether you’re pale, deep, warm, or cool.
