Estee Lauder The Metallics Pure Color Vivid Shine Lipstick for Fall 2013

Estee Lauder Pure Color Vivid Shine Lipstick

This fall Estee Lauder introduces six new limited edition Pure Color Vivid Shine Lipsticks in The Metallics collection. NOT the Metallica collection. Although that would be really cool but I don’t feel like Estee Lauder would be the right brand for them. Maybe Illamasqua?

I am nuts.

ANYWAY there are six shades (Burnished Bronze, Glow Fuchsia, Hot Lava, Gilded Honey, Coral Halo and Mirrored Orchid) and I’ve got two of them.

Estee Lauder Pure Color High Intensity Lip Lacquer for Fall 2013

Estee Lauder The Metallics

Estee Lauder Pure Color High Intensity Lip Lacquer for fall 2013 is here!

These super shiny, super glossy, super pigmented lip shades come in twelve new shades with four of them being limited edition.

They are full coverage like a lipstick but have the shine and moisture of a lip gloss. When I say they’re pigmented, I mean it. They feel like thick lip paint, but not in a bad way. They have a very slight coconut scent or maybe it’s vanilla. It’s barely there. Or maybe my sniffer is being crazy.

Estee Lauder The Metallics Nail Lacquer for Fall 2013

Estee Lauder The Metallics

Estee Lauder The Metallics is a new Pure Color Collection by Tom Pecheux, Creative Makeup Director for the brand. And hot damn if I don’t keep typing “The Metallica” by accident!

This collection includes eight new limited edition Pure Color Vivid Shine Nail Lacquers, eight new limited edition Pure Color Instant Intense Eyeshadow Trios, twelve new (six are limited edition) Pure Color High Intensity Lip Lacquers and six new limited edition Pure Color Vivid Shine Lipsticks.

In this post I am covering the new nail shades, but never fear, I shall post soon about the other items above.

“The evolution of heavy metal reaches nails in a unique brushed, reflective finish with the NEW Limited Edition Pure Color Vivid Shine Nail Lacquer. Born out of a fusion of refined pearls and aluminum platelets, this new high-impact finish saturates nails in a flash richly pigmented chromatic color. The multi-faceted spectrum of color-enriched metalized shades range from dusty rose gold to smokey deep platinum, creating a new dimension of confident style and expressive attitude.”

I must say these are some of the most incredibly pigmented nail shades I have ever used. I used one coat for every single swatch here except the first. And I only did two of that one to see if it made any difference. It didn’t. They are extremely opaque. They are also incredibly metallic. The downside is that they show every single ridge and flaw on your nails! Ack.

Estee Lauder Mad Men Collection for 2013 Swatches & Review

Estee Lauder Mad Men

There are just a scant three items in the new limited edition Estee Lauder Mad Men Collection for 2013, but they sure are gorgeous!

Estee Lauder and AMC’s Mad Men have partnered yet again for this second collection, which launches this month before the April 7th premiere of the sixth season of the show.

The collection is housed in a 1960’s paisley design with colors yellow, gold, navy, blue and white. The See-Thorough Blush comes in a leather-like gold pouch. Inside you find a metal compact with push-button to open it (love this design). The Rich, Rich Lipstick comes in a drawer-like box and a fluted gold case and the Nail Lacquer comes in a heritage inspired bottle and includes a vintage gold logo on it.
