Urban Decay Strip Eyeshadow

WHY DOESN’T ANYONE EVER TALK ABOUT THIS EYESHADOW? I cannot remember ever hearing anyone proclaim the awesomeness that is Strip! This is one of those eyeshadows that makes you go, “OOHH!!” as soon as you swatch it. The texture is phenomenal–dense, buttery, and so, so smooth. It slides across the skin like the finest silk. The texture (and color, to an extent) reminded me of my much-loved Hourglass Prism Eyeshadow Duo.

Estee Lauder Modern Mercury Collection for Fall 2011


Estee Lauder Modern Mercury Collection for Fall 2011

Launch Date: August 2011 at select Estee Lauder counters nationwide, esteelauder.com

Estée Lauder introduces a new and visionary color trend collection for Fall 2011. The Pure Color Modern Mercury Collection is a limited edition, texturally graphic collection inspired by modern, avant-garde architecture. Molten metallic eyes become the focus on a soft shimmering canvas and are complemented by edgy matte lips and a twisted shade of green on the nails. Estée Lauder Creative Makeup Director Tom Pecheux debuted pieces from the collection at the Derek Lam Fall 2011 show, creating a look reminiscent of rogue femininity combined with modern minimalism that was truly passionate and chic.

In this architectural inspired collection, skin is softly blurred with just a hint of shimmer, eyes are boldly graphic and flaunt the metallic trend of the season while lips are dusted with a matte finish in contagious shades of beige, pink and red.
Nails are finished in a manic shade of green for an unexpected accent.

Pure Color Illuminating Powder Gelee ($40.00) (Limited Edition)

A new “tribrid” system of liquid, powder and gel revolutionizes makeup application and wear with the new Pure Color Illuminating Powder Gelée. This first-of-a-kind, “multi-powder” formula creates a theatrical blur of shimmer on the skin when applied dry and a fierce flush of color when applied wet. The unique suspension of golden pigments and pearls float on top of the skin, resulting in a truly unique sensorial experience for skin. The futuristic powder is flexible and uses a luminosity boosting complex that makes the complexion appear perfectly smooth, sexy and glowing with a polished finish.
