Estee Lauder Pure Color Blush Review & Swatches

Estee Lauder Pure Color Blush 1

Estee Lauder Pure Color Blush ($28) launched earlier this Spring in a range of sixteen shades. I think these are easily overlooked since Estee Lauder is written off as a more “mature” or “older” brand.

I admit even I have dubbed it “grandma” makeup. But honestly, since creative director, Tom Pecheux, has joined the brand I feel like new life has been breath into many of the collections launched.

I have a hardcore lemming for Tom Ford Blushes however, I’m unsure if I’m ready to take the near $60 plunge to own one of these wonderful creations.

I must say that Estee Lauder Pure Color Blush has cured some of those lemmings. These are an affordable, luxury blush that’s well worth checking out. I have a feeling once you tried one you’ll want to grab up all the shades like me.

I dunno how but NARS somehow convinced me that matte is a rather nice finish.

NARS Larger than Life Lipgloss Rouge Tribal Review & Swatches

NARS Larger than Life Lipgloss Rouge Tribal 1

NARS Larger than Life Lipgloss in Rouge Tribal crossed over my desk last week from the NARS Fall 2012 Collection. I was quite excited about this shade as it looked like a rusty red shade with a warmth that I could pull off.

I never really liked red before purchasing MAC Queen’s Sin and every after that I’ve been obsessed with finding perfect shades of red that suit my skin tone. It really is true that if you search long enough you’re bound to find at least one shade of red that suits you and makes you look like a million bucks.

Let’s take a look at Rouge Tribal.

Buxom Full Bodied Lip Gloss 1

Buxom Full-Bodied Lip Gloss ($19) is a newly launched gloss for Fall 2012 from the brand available in ten shades.

At a glance you’ll probably be reminded of Wonder Glass, Hard Candy Glossaholic, and Flirt Big Flirt Lipgloss as these resemble the chubby little tubes that those glosses came in.
