Estee Lauder has teamed up with Harper’s Bazaar for the second year for their Fabulous At Every Age Contest.

Harper’s Bazaar and Estee Lauder teamed up to find five of America’ chicest woman for the Fabulous at Every Age search, which is inspired by one of the magazine’s pmost popular features that transforms trends into great, age appropriate looks!

Five finalists, each representing a decade between 20 and 60+, will receive a $5,000 cash prize and be honored at a VIP party hosted by Estée Lauder Spokesmodel Elizabeth Hurley at Hearst Tower in New York City on April 12. One grand prize winner will be selected from the finalists and receive an additional cash prize of $5,000.

To celebrate the search Estee Lauder has launched limited edition Fabulous at Every Age Lipstick and LipGloss which I’m about to show you today!

Check it!

Estee Lauder Pure Color Long Lasting Lipstick in Bitten Fig and Estee Lauder Pure Color Gloss in Red Tango are two stunning shades of red flattering for every age, available for a limited time exclusively at Saks Fifth Avenue stores nationwide, as well as on Saks.com and EsteeLauder.com. A chic, white zippered carrying case is available at select Saks locations with the purchase of a Fabulous at Every Age limited-edition lipstick or gloss.

You already know what a HUGE fan girl I am when it comes to Pure Color Lipgloss and I absolutely adore Red Tango. It lacks shimmer of any kind but it still has a beautifully shiny finish and is pretty much a universally flattering shade of warmer red. Bitten Fig Pure Color Lipstick is a perfect companion to the gloss as it sports almost a similar shade of red but remains the lighter of the two. Needless to say they both pair up lovely together!

If you’re looking for a warmer shade of red do check out these two shades as they are quite nice ones to add to your stash of reds.

Casting calls for the contest will be held at select Estee Lauder counters at Saks Fifth Avenue locations around the country January 20-22 from 11:00am until 6:00pm (local time), where women will have the chance to get a makeup touch-up from a Beauty Advisor, try the Fabulous at Every Age lip colors, then pose for a digital photo which can be uploaded immediately to the contest microsite – customers are advised to call ahead to schedule an appointment:

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    wowww..muse you are looking beautiful with this red lips..love love your look here.

  • katrosado5

    Love Love Love! I adore EL lipglosses. Thanks for bringing this to us! (that shade looks fab on you muse!)

    • the Muse

      me too katros. TOTALLY ADORE the pure color lipgloss ;-D aw thanks you’re too kind!

  • Ru

    So what exactly is the definition of fabulous to them? They are asking for an close face shot and body shot within the last year. Are they expecting unfounded beautiful (read: skinny, perfect skin, etc) people they haven’t discovered, or everyday beautiful (in your own skin)?

    • the Muse

      I imagine it’s one who is comfortable in their own skin at their age Ru. someone who is 50 and confidence and loving them self at this age or someone who is 20 who is loving who they are becoming. Confidence in their age and who they are, I imagine that’s what they define as fabulous. They didn’t send me out a definition of the exact type of person they are looking for nor did they mention anything about the person having to be fabulous merely feeling fabulous at any age…or at least that’s how I understood it. Hope this helps!

    The lipstick is sweating because it’s thinking, “OMG, I’m going to be featured on Musings of a Muse! I’d better get ready for my closeup!”

    Sorry…that random thought just popped into my head the minute I saw that picture. ^_^;

  • Andrea

    I don’t wear red lips very often (aka never), but this combo looks so gorgeous on you that I really want to give it a shot. =)

    • the Muse

      andrea I have always felt red lips were an absolutely big time no for me but I purchased Queen’s Sin from MAC one Holiday and never turned back ;-D It’s all about getting a good shade of red that suits you ;-D These two are nice warm shades that really look fab and not clowny and that’s so important as some reds can really look like a circus act ;D Good Luck I hope they work out for you dear girl!

  • Tigress

    That lipstick color is gorgeous! Wow, I really like that. I may have to stop by the EL counter and give it a try.
