Change is good.  And especially the change in these new Estee Lauder blushes.  Creative Makeup Director, Tom Pecheux, has created 16 new blush shades – each one as fabulous as the next. 

The Pure Color Blushes are intensely pigmented with a very nice staying power.  The creamy powder shades are so bountiful that there has to be one to fit everyone! With 16 to choose from there is no limit, from a very vibrant hot pink, a nearly neon tangerine, deep rusts and roses and for those not so bold there are plenty of shades to choose from, too.  Because these are so highly pigmented, my only suggestion is that if choosing one of the vibrant shades to use a fan or skunk style brush. You’ll get a lighter application with these types of brushes – making it easier to build color if you wish, instead of looking like you never got out of the 80’s with overdone cheeks.    Another thing I love about these blushes is that they last a long, long time.  For me, this blush lasted longer than any I’ve tried for a powder formula.

Estee Lauder also has two new primers.  One is illuminating and the other is mattifying.

Estee Lauder Matte Perfecting Primer


Notice these primers are creamy based, not gel based like many primers.  The formula makes them easy to apply and they give the skin a beautiful canvas in which to begin your makeup application. Whether you are oily and want a matte finish or have lost that glow to your skin, these two Estee Lauder primers can suit your needs.

Estee Lauder Illuminating Perfecting Primer


You’ll notice the Illuminating Perfecting Primer – even in the dollop on the left seems to have a pearlized glow to it.  On the hand it is subtle and not a shimmery, shiny, oily look, but a lit-within look.

These primers sell for $32 each, blush $28 and all products discussed here are hitting the stores now. Macy’s is also having their Estee Lauder Gift with Purchase going on now!
