03 Jan Estee Lauder Spring 2011 Collection Review & Swatches: Wild Violet
Ladies, now is the time we take sneak peaks at what’s to come this spring in the world of beauty and cosmetics. Estee Lauder’s 2011 Spring Collection:Wild Violet is full of clean yet electric colors.
Available in January, this collection was created by Tom Pecheux, Estee Lauder’s Creative Makeup Director. “In this intensely vivacious collection, lips delight in shades of electric orange, brazen cherry and violet plum, eyes are smoldering in muted neutrals with wisps of purple for maximum depth and attention while nails are rich and smokey in a modern charcoal. “
As seen in the photo above, I started out applying the Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara on the left eye. I’m a mascara junkie and it’s not uncommon to find three (or more) different brands in my makeup bag at any given time. This will be added to the collection. My lashes were left thick and long without the use of fake lashes. A+ in my book.
Cherry Lip Gelee
Coral Lip Gelee
In the photos above, I am wearing the Electric Cherry Lip Geelee in the first picture, and the Coral Lip Gelee in the second. The shade and scent is lovely however I wish there was a little more staying power.
I rarely wear lip colors of coral and peach however I was pleasantly surprised by the Wild Coral Pure Color Long Lasting Lipstick. It wasn’t as “peachy” as I expected. It left a nice spring shade that lasted for hours.
This Pure Color Nail Lacquer, Storm, is a charcoal grey. It’s a lighter shade than those dark nail trends we saw at the end of 2010.
