Ever since creative director Tom Pecheux has come on board, the offerings from Estee Lauder, once thought of as an “older lady” brand, has been astounding. This is not your grandmother’s makeup, if it ever was. These new lipsticks have concentrated pigments wrapped in a crystalline laminate polymer to create a gorgeous look that is anything but flat. We’re talking multi-dimensional and rich. Good for your lips too, with apricot kernel oil, shea butter, and vitamins C and E. All of these colors will be available at Estee Lauder counters nationwide this month, and retail for $24.
The Pure Color line has 25 intensely pigmented shades in a satin creme and a lustrous shimmer:
Pure Color Crystal Lipstick is a more sheer formula, in sheer shine and brilliant shimmer formulas:
Lastly, there is the Pure Color Lipstick Custom Collection by Tom Pecheux. These six shades were developed by Tom Pecheux and inspired by his work on the runways. Two of them, Cherry Passion and Plum Couture, will be part of the regular line up, and will be available at select retailers. The rest of the colors are limited edition and available exclusively at EsteeLauder.com for $24.
