Estee Lauder has introduced new limited edition Pure Color EyeShadows ($17.50), available in 10 matte and 10 metallic shades. I was drawn to the metallics.
A silky new formula for Pure Color looks richer, wears longer, and doesn't crease. The shadows have a lightweight texture, but carry lots of pigment. You can buy one and sweep it from lash line to brow (Ecru Matte or Porcelain Matte would be nice for that on fair skin) or splurge and express your inner artist. They blend easily. I purchased Gold Metallic, Candlelight Metallic, and Amber Metallic. I have my eyes on Copper Metallic for darker accents too.
It's nice that the little compact has a mirror and applicator, however useless the applicator is for makeup mavens, in case you want to keep one in your purse or desk drawer at work. These are worthy of a look next time you shop.
Available at Estee Lauder's Web site (try code FREESHIP30), Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Saks (it's beauty week), or wherever you purchase Estee Lauder. Bloomingdale's has skin-care bonus offers for Estee Lauder right now - and a lipstick gift in store next week - so you may want to look there.
