Estee Lauder x Courrèges Collection for Spring 2015

Estee Lauder x Courrèges Collection for Spring 2015
Estee Lauder x Courrèges Collection for Spring 2015

Cosmonauts, satellites, missiles to the moon. Unprecedented advancement and achievement underwrote the inaugural period of intergalactic exploration that came to be known as the Space Age of the early-1960s. When a culture of futurism subsequently consumed the era, there were two names firmly in the vanguard: Estée Lauder and André Courrèges. She, a beauty industry innovator whose “every woman can be beautiful” mantra was ahead of its time; he, a fashion force whose avant-garde aesthetic broke all the style rules by injecting an air of playfulness, movement, and egalitarianism into every one of his haute couture collections. Visionaries both, their brands have now joined together to pioneer a new interpretation of color. Introducing Courrèges Estée Lauder Collection: a limited edition collection of zero-gravity shades that draws on a shared point of view on color, beauty and the resolution to never stop moving forward.

Courrèges Estée Lauder Collection is a 13-piece limited edition line that marries the floating-on-air feeling of an embellished Courrèges mini dress, and the punched-up precision of Estée Lauder’s progressive product design, seen through the Courrèges lens. The formulations were designed to be surprising in their lightness, in their sensorial delivery, their translucency, reflectivity, and in their pop-y palette. They are an invitation to have fun with color, texture and special effects while defying the confines of nostalgia by creating a look that is wholly of today.

Lip Visor ($26.00) (Limited Edition)

With a vivid, plexi-like shine reminiscent of Courrèges’ fondness for transparency, an ordinary gloss this is not. A rich balmy formula, it imparts a luscious, wet effect. Lips feel instantly smoothed and soothed, with an impactful pigment pay-off that is impossible to ignore, without trying too hard.

  • See-Through
  • Coral Mini

Super Gloss ($26.00) (Limited Edition)

High coverage, high-impact focal point lips! With the perfect pop of high reflectivity pink, this dramatic gloss features a special delivery system with an innovative flow-through tip to allow for an easy-on, flawless application with every swipe.

  • Rosy Future

Illuminations Face Powder ($32.00) (Limited Edition)

Create glowing, otherworldly skin with this silky-effect powder. Brush over cheeks, forehead, and brow bones for a burst of pure light that is velvety-soft with an impeccable, long-lasting quality.

Super Lashes ($32.00) (Limited Edition)

Sixties-era spider lashes get a 21st-century reboot with these long, full, natural-looking eye accessories that are perfectly shaped to provide a striking flutter and next-level definition. Measure the strips along your lash line, trim accordingly and add a thin layer of lash glue along the perimeter, waiting 30 seconds for the adhesive to become tacky before pressing it onto the inner corner of lids and working your way outward. To remove, gently pull the lashes away from the edge.

Eye Amplifier ($26.00) (Limited Edition)

The graphic white personified by Courrèges original moon girls inspires this new compact, which features a clear, twist-off lid that encloses an ultra-luxe eyeshadow. Applied best with a brush, the weightless powder formula has been spiked with a special siliconic polymer that allows the product to attach itself seamlessly to the skin. Use wet or dry for shimmering, radiant dimension and a glass-like finish that lasts for hours without creasing.

  • Aqua Silver
  • Black Silver

Eye Glide Pencil ($22.00) (Limited Edition)

Metallic accents have long illustrated the oft-publicized dream of the future perfect. Here, they become reality with a creamy silver pencil that glides onto eyes to shade, define and smolder. Create structure and depth by blending across lids with your fingertips, or line and define along upper and lower lashes for a bold, standout statement.

  • Silver Streak

Iridescent Ball Highlighter ($26.00) (Limited Edition)

“I want to let the light into my clothes,” Courrèges would say of his preference for lucidity above all else, which has inspired this iridescent powder gelée. The innovative plastic orb applicator that houses a sensorial cream can be dotted onto cheeks for an allover polished glow or onto temples, cheekbones, and other high planes of the face for a concentrated highlight.

Lip + Cheek Ball ($26.00) (Limited Edition)

This revolutionary jelly-like gloss has a full-throttle shine and a translucent berry hue that adds a slight tint to lips, while imparting a rosy glow to cheeks for a happy flush.

  • Ultra Pink

Ultra White Eyeliner ($26.00) (Limited Edition)

White is the new black with this vibrant, opaque liquid eyeliner that provides a brilliant vinyl finish in the classic color code of the house of Courrèges. The super-fine eyeliner boasts a dip-in fine brush applicator to scrawl the perfect feline flick with a shocking pop of starkly bright, white pigment.

  • Lunar White

Kabuki Brush ($36.00) (Limited Edition)

This lush bouncy tool adds a ritualistic feeling to the simple act of adornment. Luxuriously soft, white bristles give a uniform finish to mattifying, highlighting and contouring efforts, while working particularly well in tandem with the Illuminations Face Powder.

Availability: March 2015; early access at Sephora for VIB Rouge/VIB members

I like~ and think this is a nice fresh collection for the label. I’m rather excited and going to pick up a few pieces: I think both the cream shadow pencil and the black silver eyeshadow …definitely my kind of products. They pack a texture punch, but are perfect for simple one step eye.

Hmm… do not know how to feel about this, seems kind of cool and kind of… boring. The descriptions sounded kind of gimmicky to me. The Eye Glide Pencil packaging really reminds me of the ones by Mally Beauty. Christine, do you think you’ll review any of these products?

What happened to their unpopular new model. It seems she was announced, then never seen again. Did they realize that their customers didn’t approve and drop her?

This collection looks promising. Want to try that white eyeliner! Hope more products go up on the Sephora website soon. I only see two so far!

Looks interesting! Does anyone remember a similar appearing collection from Estée Lauder in about 1999? It had white packaging with a neo-futuristic appearance. I think they also were playing on highlights, light/dark contrasts.

I’m not a fan of white packaging (can look cheap and gets dirty fast), but I do like that Estee Lauder has a fresh new collection, is trying to shake off it’s stodgy, old-fashion image, and I like the space theme in the promo pics

Been SO excited about this one! Sephora didn’t have every single piece online (and there’s an elusive hair mascara that’s allegedly launching with this too… but I haven’t seen it yet) but you bet your whatever I just ordered everything they DO have from it about two minutes ago 😉

It would help if EL just gave us the number of the MAC lashes they were repackaging 😉 idk man, I know EL owns MAC, but this re-vamping campaign with Kendall Jenner seems like they’re going to try to appeal to a younger crowd, and the main example they have of a company working with a younger crowd is MAC.

I just hope they don’t turn into the mom from Mean Girls…
“I’m not like a regular parent company, I’m a COOL parent company!”

I’ve had the same thoughts and concerns… sans lashes though (I don’t really care how many products get swapped back and forth between related brands, MAC uses Lauder, Lauder uses Clinique, Bobbi Brown, Tom Ford, etc…). In recent years they started to verge on luxury and I’d rather see them go that route instead of trendy. I think Tom P. was central in that luxury slant they were taking, with him gone it’ll be interesting to see what the next chapter brings.

Hi Dustin, Hope to see your take on some of these products on your youtube channel soon. Was really impressed with your recent
Lauder video. I’m thinking about getting the illuminating powder for sure.

‘I just hope they don’t turn into the mom from Mean Girls…
“I’m not like a regular parent company, I’m a COOL parent company!”’

OMG, I just lost it laughing. 😀

At first glance (just catching a glimpse of the press photo), I wondered what this post was about, lol. It does seem a strange marriage though. I don’t know. Just seeing the collection on its own – OK its kind of interesting. But knowing it is EL just makes it feel wrong. I’ll see what products themselves have to offer before passing judgement, though. 🙂

I have never ever been intrigued by an Estee Lauder campaign until just now. Definitely a success if they truly are trying to reach a younger market.

Oh wow! Makes me wish I still had my mom’s old white go-go boots *g* (the vinyl finally gave up and split but they were so comfy). Unexpected from Lauder. Definitely want to check it out. I had to double check the pic of the eye pencil because the ‘lead’ looks exactly the same as the bottom of the packaging!

Interesting collection – but the only shade that takes my fancy is the green. Usually EL’s products are quite good, so I will be keen to read what they are like.

When I saw this, the picture made me think Shu Uemura, or maybe Clinique! 😀 Not what I’d expect from EL, but I like the sphere packaging, and I’ll be interested to see how the various bits and pieces turn out – especially the green and white…

I’m into this too.. the white liner especially. This collection simple and not like their typical stuff. Estee Lauder has a reputation of being a bit old fashioned- like. Perhaps this is an attempt to break that stereotype. I hope to see reviews and I hope this line does well for them.

On a couple of forums I did see people from Estee Lauder giving out feelers to see what the young generation want (like the line of questioning was obvious). I guess this is the result. Let’s see if the experiment works.

Hi, I love this blog. I am starting to get more into makeup as I get older and these are the types of blogs I am looking for. Your writing and descriptions are empowering and detailed (even gives readers a little history). I like how you took the time to list and provide pictures for the collection and not just describe them. This is a great blog

Wow, this looks decidedly un-Estee Lauder like. They make some gorgeous products, but I always find it hard to get past their dowdy packaging and reputation as a brand for older women. I think this looks so fresh and young and the right way to go if they are looking to reach a younger audience. It almost feels like a MAC collection when you see those lashes mixed in there. Will be curious to see reviews on these products. Not generally a fan of white plastic packaging, but something about this looks refreshing.
