Estée Lauder Pure Color Gloss in Mod Poppy Shimmer and Magnificent Mauve Shimmer

As Tom Pecheux's, new Pure Color Lipsticks hit the counters, I wanted to show you two pretty Pure Color Glosses ($20) I purchased. Available in 35 shades in three high-shine finishes - shine, shimmer, and sparkle - there are almost too many pretty choices! All offer sheer or medium coverage. You will want more than one.

Estée Lauder's True Vision technology "transforms ordinary color and makes it extraordinary. Imagine what it will do for your lips."

"Gloss brings sensuality to a woman's face." - Tom Pecheux, Estée Lauder Creative Makeup Director

I think he's right! These glosses feel light (not heavy or sticky). They are drenched with conditioning ingredients. The doe-foot applicators apply the shades evenly and easily for a precisely defined look.

Here is a swatch photo, taken in late-afternoon outdoor sunlight, of Magnificent Mauve at top and Mod Pink below. Both are shimmer finish glosses. I love them both. One is lightly tinted, while the other offers more color. Despite the difference in their names, I think they are both in the same brown-rose color family.

They have that slight, Estée Lauder fig fragrance, but it is one I can handle. It disappears fairly quickly.

These glosses (and probably Tom Pecheux as much as the gloss) won an Allure major award for 2010: Best Lip Gloss. Pecheux is a darling of the beauty industry. He is totally revamping a brand many had given up as their "mother's makeup."

You can find Pure Color glosses everywhere! Most major department stores have an Estée Lauder counter. There's a free gift with purchase right now at the Estée Lauder Web site.

I own several EL glosses and really like them. I find them moisturizing, non-sticky, and pretty. I'll have to check out these new colours! Thank you!

They are pretty, Lovethescents! These two popped right out at me - from a huge display. :)

I love both colors! Always on the lookout for a good mauve that's not too intense.
