Estee Lauder Sensuous Gold Collection for Fall 2009

Inspired by the ease and sensuality of the season’s fashions, Estée Lauder has created Sensuous Gold – a uniquely feminine, luxurious new color collection for fall 2009. Using soft nuances of color with rich tints, tones and washes, Sensuous Gold gently brings out an inner radiance and reveals the softer side of every woman. Skin is luminous, warm and radiant in a soft veil of golden tones. Eyes are delicately defined in soft shades of golden amber and peach accented by rich, regal amethyst. Lips are luxuriously dressed for the season in sateen finishes of coppery nudes and supple plums. Sensuous Gold creates a look that is at once sophisticated, luxurious and naturally feminine. Completing the impression is the distinctly modern and luxurious rose golden packaging.

It’s a matte matte world. The no-luster polish look is taking center stage in today’s fashion. Essie, the ultimate nail color authority, gives you that high-impact fashion statement with any of your favorite nail colors. Introducing Matte About You Matte Finisher – the perfect solution to mattifying any color.

Matte About You is the only product you’ll need to achieve the look – this innovative new product leaves a matte finish on any nail color you choose. From light sheer colors to dark crème, Matte About You creates a smooth matte finish and adds new dimension and texture to any essie nail color. The exclusive, advanced formula instantly transforms any polish from high gloss to matte in seconds.

Matte About You achieves the matte color look with the same salon-proven, long-lasting durability as our stable of colors and nail treatments. Start with an essie base coat, followed by two coats of your favorite essie nail polish. Finish by applying a thin layer of Matte About You in place of a top coat.
