Estee Lauder Pretty Naughty Collection for Spring 2013
Introducing a deceptively sensual limited edition trend collection for 2013, Estée Lauder Pure Color Pretty Naughty. Optimistic yet not overly sweet, the world of watercolor pastels is taken to new heights by infusing an urban synthetic vibe for a youthful and modern twist. Inspired by exquisitely delicate pastoral hues from the enchanting English gardens, mischievously dusky pigments add a flash of dramatic irony. With a youthful rebellious attitude, Estée Lauder Pure Color Pretty Naughty overcomes the paradox of being romantically sophisticated and playfully sexy.
Eyes are washed in a flight of fanciful soft tones and lined in discreet flashes of dark pigments to create dramatic emphasis and contrast, while cheeks are flushed with a tint of color for a naturally innocent and glowing finish. Lips are softly touched by vividly sheer shades in satin textures and nails complete the look with a sultry new interpretation of lilac. Together, a wash of gentle tones infused with strokes of brilliant hues run against a radiant satin complexion creating a beautifully feminine, sensually innocent and playful look that any woman can fall in love with.

Envelop lips in rich satin with new Pure Color Sheer Matte Lipsticks in four brilliantly refined naughty shades. Creamy, lightweight matte formula exudes a sheer and satin finish, leaving lips feeling soft and supple. The ultra-slim modern silhouette hugs lips upon application, leaving lips infused with fruit extracts that add moisture and hydrate. Light-perfecting pearls radiate a flawless, satin-rich color that is sheer and stable. Highly pigmented shades range from a light pink to a bright coral adding a bright and vivid pop of color.
Pure Color Nail Lacquer ($20.00) (Limited Edition)
Estee Lauder Tease Illuminating Powder Gelee Blush ($40.00 for TBA oz.) is a highlighting powder and blush with “soft color” that “builds to a high sheen.” It’s a soft pink with a hint if plum and slight cool undertones with a frosted, lightly metallic finish. It’s very much in the same vein (as far as finish goes) as other iterations of the formula. MAC Flower Fantasy was the closest color I could think of, but it’s a bit lighter. Lancome Moonlight Rose has a similar finish, but it’s much, much lighter. Bobbi Brown Wild Rose is warmer, less pink, more beige.
The pigmentation on Tease is excellent; it’s a very buildable product, but it doesn’t require careful application to avoid getting too much pigment. It should work well for really pale complexions as well as much deeper ones. It has a beautiful, finely-milled consistency and soft, smooth texture that applies and blends well on the skin. There is a very slight emphasis of pores and skin texture, but it’s at a level where the glow it yields seems like a good trade-off and is not noticeable from afar. On my medium skin tone, it added both soft color and sheen. It lasted for eight full hours without fading. If you are a fan of this type of powder product, I think this one is definitely worth checking out.
I’m not sure how much product this contains (the back of mine has sample labeling), but I know that previous versions of the Illuminating Powder Gelees have been 0.15 oz. and 0.17 oz. The size of this compact is the same, so I would expect it to be of similar size. There definitely seems to be plenty of product in the pan.

Asking me to choose my favorite highlighter, by the way, is akin to making me choose favorites between (fur) children (if I had more than one). There were some seriously ga-ga-glowing highlighters launched this year, too! On the blush front, there were some great shades and formulas I tried and tested, but it was easier to narrow those down.
There were actually a lot of fantastic palettes released this year! I already pulled up twenty that to consider for the top ten, and I had only reached August (I go backwards). So here are my picks–and I tried to include a variety of brands that were all excellent, but full disclosure: could have easily included more bareMinerals, Guerlain, and another Tom Ford (Enchanted).
My favorite way to wear silver during the holidays is on the lash line, actually. It can add a lot of brightness to a look! I like the line the lower lash line with a rich black eyeliner, then pat on silver eyeshadow on top. I also love silvers with blues–very wintry!
