PURE WHITE LINEN COLOR COLLECTION

This spring escape to a charming seaside retreat where sandy beaches and warm sea breezes await, offering a perfect remedy of soothing comfort after a crisp, cold winter. Relax on a sun-drenched porch in lightweight, finely spun fabrics in sand-washed textures and nautically infused shades with soft lines and easy cuts that say classic, comfortable style. Pair your relaxed style with luminous skin, serene eyes and sheer, subtly defined lips – all part of Estée Lauder’s Pure White Linen Color Collection for spring. Inspired by the simplicity of the 1950′s with a fresh, modern feel, the collection features two complementary looks of classic beauty that are perfect for enjoying the warm, sunny days of spring. Nantucket Sun captures the warmth of white sand beaches and grassy dunes with earthy shades of green and coral, while Newport Rose reflects the soft, cool shades of the sea and a dusk sky in airy shades of blue and pink.

A portrait in the nude, daring in its stripped-down sensuality with natural shades in Mineralized Skinfinishes that play up the nakedness of cheeks, lips, eyes…for a glamazon who knows the power of artifice, but has the confidence and allure to strip it all away. N Collection is naked, with coverage — it’ll be our little secret. Custom-created high-performance brushes mean no one need ever know. Seductive, and ripe for scandal.

Oh my goodness, are these not adorable?  Sigh, I wish they weren’t $90 a pop, because I would surely consider getting one otherwise.  I just don’t think I could bring myself to splurge that much on any makeup item with my student budget!  Anyone a fan of Chantecaille?
