In November 2009, Estée Lauder named world-renowned makeup artist Tom Pecheux Creative Makeup Director. His first challenge: to create a beauty concept that links iconic French beauty with an iconic American beauty brand.
“As a makeup artist, I am known for making women look beautiful, sensual and sexy,” said Pecheux. “When given the challenge to create a collection exclusively for Paris, I thought it would be perfect to create a nighttime look, because this is when every French woman wants to look her most beautiful. I wanted to translate the seductiveness and femininity of French women into makeup.”
According to Pecheux, Pure Color Night is a collection of three must-have products to experience the chicest of Paris at night…from dusk to dawn.
“I wanted to create the ultimate in French sensuality and sexiness — black eyeshadow for a naughty, smokey eye; highlighter for a healthy glow and lips that men will not be afraid to kiss,” said Pecheux.
Pure Color Ombre Effect EyeShadow in Naughty Black creates a smokey eye with smoldering impact. Featuring a textured trio of matte, shimmer and sparkle, these dramatic black/ brown shades can be used alone or together. $20.00
Pure Color Luminous Powder is an incredibly refined and lightweight powder with a luxurious creamy texture. The Highlight shade adds a sensual glow to skin making it look young, healthy and dewy. $40.00
Pure Color Lip Gelée in Kiss Me saturates lips with a nude rose tint, giving the mouth a just-bitten wet look. Water-like high shine polymers amplify the glass like finish, ensuring a coveted seductive pout. $20.00
The Pure Color Night Collection is housed in chic, blackened-blue packaging with the Estée Lauder cartouche engraved on each lid.
