Pinkadelic Rich, Rich Lipstick ($30). "Turn on your lips to this limited-edition lipstick inspired by the Award Winning AMC Drama MadMen. Creamy, satin finish, and smooth rich lipcolor. The Pinkadelic shade captures the soft-lipped, sexy-innocent Sixties look perfectly. The lipstick case and carton are replicas of actual designs from Estée Lauder's Sixties-era collections, and Pinkadelic is named after one of Estée Lauder's most popular Sixties' lip formulas."
here, this year's Pinkadelic is more of an everyday color. Last year's bright cherry rose was a little darker than I'd wear to the office, although it was simply gorgeous. I mentioned to you that I sent it recently to a reader who had searched far and wide for the 2012 collection - way too late to find it. I found I wasn't wearing the vibrant shades.
Pinkadelic is a superb color for me - and I suspect most of you. I took swatch photos in very bright sunlight this morning. The sun gave it more sparkle than it has in "real life," but it's a medium pink shade that will make your lips sing indoors or out.
online to order it yet? When I think of Mad Men, I think of glamour. Pinkadelic offers glamour and a femininity that's appropriate for this celebration of the Sixties.
Like last year's Mad Men lipstick, Pinkadelic is small - not like a sample, but smaller than your average lipstick. Don't be surprised by that.
Mad Men is a limited-edition collection, so if you want one piece or all of them, I'd recommend that you purchase now. I'll show you the See-Thru Blush after lunch. Perhaps I'll get in my car and drive up to Neiman Marcus to find the nail lacquer this afternoon.
You can find the three-piece collection now at the Estée Lauder Web site and at Estée Lauder counters everywhere.
