A deceptively sensual [and possibly hard to wear], limited-edition trend collection for 2013 has been launched: Estée Lauder Pure Color Pretty Naughty. Optimistic yet not overly sweet, the world of watercolor pastels is taken to new heights by infusing an urban synthetic vibe for a youthful and modern twist. Inspired by exquisitely delicate pastoral hues from the enchanting English gardens, mischievously dusky pigments add a flash of dramatic irony. With a youthful rebellious attitude, Estée Lauder Pure Color Pretty Naughty overcomes the paradox of being romantically sophisticated and playfully sexy.
Eyes are washed in a flight of fanciful soft tones and lined in discreet flashes of dark pigments to create dramatic emphasis and contrast, while cheeks are flushed with a tint of color for a naturally innocent and glowing finish. Lips are softly touched by vividly sheer shades in satin textures, and nails complete the look with a sultry new interpretation of lilac. Together, a wash of gentle tones infused with strokes of brilliant hues run against a radiant satin complexion, creating a beautifully feminine, sensually innocent, and playful look that any woman can fall in love with.
All of these limited-edition pieces are available at Estée Lauder's Web site. I have not seen them at counters yet. The press release didn't even mention counters, which I found interesting. Given the rate at which the limited-edition Illuminating Powder Gelée Blushes sell out, I'll be ordering mine today. What do you think?
