Estee Lauder Pure Color Modern Mercury Fall 2011 Collection

Although I gave you a very brief glance at the new Estee Lauder Pure Color Modern Mercury Collection for Fall 2011 late last week today I bring you the entire release including prices, shades, and product information.

I normally love Estee Lauder Fall but I’m not sure Modern Mercury is quite me. Tom Pecheux’s, Estee Lauder’s Creative Director, was inspired by creative reflections found in modern architecture and how buildings never look the same color because they are flecting what is around them. His idea is that wearing the same makeup should never end up looking the same way. An interesting concept to say the least.

Let’s take a look!

Estee Lauder Pure Color Illuminating Powder Gelée $40
A new “tribrid” system of liquid, powder and gel revolutionizes makeup application and wear with the new Pure Color Illuminating Powder Gelée. This first-of-a-kind, “multi-powder” formula creates a theatrical blur of shimmer on the skin when applied dry and a fierce flush of color when applied wet. The unique suspension of golden pigments and pearls float on top of the skin, resulting in a truly unique sensorial experience for skin. The futuristic powder is flexible and uses a luminosity boosting complex that makes the complexion appear perfectly smooth, sexy and glowing with a polished finish.

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.

    Eh, nothing I *need*, exactly, but I’m always open to trying out red lipstick. I’d like to jump in to estee lauder lipstick, it looks so pretty, but just haven’t for one reason or another (mostly the counter ladies aren’t helpful).

    I’ll jab at that powder when it’s sitting on the counter, but the design is too pretty to actually buy. How would you ever use it? Took me months to use my Naked Palette because it was so pretty (and precious since it took ages to get) and that was just a plain’ ol’ palette.

    Do you have anything “too pretty to use”?

    Those liquid liners call to me the most. I love complicated takes on deceptively simple colors.

  • Janet Shepherd

    Oooh, I love the concept. The powder looks good, loving the eyeshadows and the fuschia lippie. Oh, if only money was no object lol!

  • Katrosado

    I ordered the gelee and a crystal lippie (but the lippie was in crystal baby which they are again selling in the US now) I can’t wait to get the gelee!

      it’s gorgeous katros but it smells like potato sticks haha!

  • Nia

    Not loving the packaging, gold is so not me, but I might try one of the eyeshadow duos, they have gotten great reviews so far.
