Estee Lauder Pretty Naughty 2

It is grey, cold and pouring rain as I look out my window while typing this. Yet despite the weather outside being frightful (get it?), it looks like spring has seriously sprung inside at Vampy Varnish headquarters with the new Estee Lauder Pretty Naughty spring 2013 collection!

We have only just eked into winter but my mind is far beyond that. I’m thinking of pale blues, bright pinks and soft lavenders…Some of my favorite makeup and clothing colors come out in the spring, so call this woman excited for what’s ahead!

Intense Kajal Eyeliner Duo Blue & Black, Cheek Gelée in Tease

Intense Kajal Eyeliner Duo features a pale matte blue on one end and a jet black on the other. The blue is a wee bit chalky, but the black is very creamy and deep.

Illuminating Powder Gelée Blush in Tease is a soft, shimmery pink, perfect as a blush or highlighter. It consists of a liquid, powder and gel, which is what makes it a “gelée”. You can build it up nicely creating a more intense look if you wish. Great pigmentation.

Insatiable is a muted, murky purple creme. This has a very greyed out understated look to it, which I like. It applied fairly thin at first but you only need two coats for complete coverage. Unique? Probably not.

The new Sheer Matte Lipsticks have a semi-matte finish and come in a really cool skinny twist-up tube. The have fruit extract which is supposed to help moisturize lips, but they feel on the dry side to my parched lips. If I were to wear these for awhile I would need a more moisturizing lip balm under them. But overall the colors are super fun, bright and nicely pigmented.

Demure is a bright fuchsia pink.

Rock Candy is a medium coral.

Naked is a pale peach.

Rebel is a somewhat frosty flamingo pink.

(over primer)

Pure Color Five Color Eyeshadow Palette in Pretty Naughty features five eyeshadow shades, three of them pastels and two more natural shades.

Upper left is a pale blue pastel matte.

Upper right is a medium taupe.

Lower right is a medium lavender.

Lower left is a bright, pale pink.

Middle is a smoky charcoal grey shimmer.

Over a primer, I got really good payoff with all of these shades. I was very happy that the blue wasn’t chalky as I had expected. I love all of these shades in one palette, I think they all go very well together.

Overall: I am definitely jonesing for spring now! My favorite items here are the eyeshadow palette, cheek color and nail color. I like the lipsticks also, but feel they are a bit drying on me. The eyeliner is just ok because the blue wasn’t as creamy and opaque as I would like.

Availability: January 2013 exclusively on Estee Lauder’s site.

Pricing: Eyeshadow Palette ($48), Kajal Eyeliner Duo ($23), Gelée Blush ($40), Sheer Matte Lipstick ($25), Nail Color ($20).
