Estee Lauder’s Pure Color Extravagant Collection for holiday 2010 features rich colors for eyes, lips and of course, nails.
I am a recent Estee Lauder nail fan, and actually don’t own any other cosmetic item by them. I always associated them with “the more mature woman” but hey, a good color is a good color!
The two nail colors in this collection are Extravagant Pearl and Extravagant Night.
This color is a very pale, very cool gold/silver with gold, pink and green shimmer. I was hoping for a little more opacity with this, but it’s not quite there. Even with three coats, this one clearly isn’t opaque. I think it would need 4 or maybe even 5 to become fully opaque. It’s pretty but I was wishing for more saturation. But it could be worn over another gold or silver color.
This is a deep plum purple with pink and gold shimmer and slightly larger pieces of silver glitter. This is a gorgeous, deep, velvety looking color and it definitely says “the holidays” to me. I cannot think of a dupe for this that I own. This was much more opaque than Extravagant Pearl but I still used three coats.
Both are very nice quality, which you would expect for this price and this name. Unless you like sheers or are obsessed with all golds, I would avoid Extravagant Pearl, but I think Extravagant Night is a must have!
What do you think about these two?
