Estee Lauder Pretty Naughty: Tease

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. ┬áIf 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.
