Things I Covet: Estee Lauder’s Violet Underground Collection

Tuesday, September 11th, 2012

I have to admit it has been a long time since Estee Lauder made me excited about any of their products, but this collection is the exception.

Out for Fall of 2012, Violet Underground features a palette, lipstick, lip gloss and nail polish in varying shades of purple.

Have I mentioned that I adore purple?

Many people think they can’t wear purple eyeshadow because they feel like they end up looking like they have a black eye.  But I am of the personal opinion that it all comes down to proper primer around the eyes, making sure your eyelids and the skin around your eyes matches the rest of your skin as closely as possible.  Heck, maybe even a shade lighter.  I wear Three Custom Color’s Eyeshadow Trio for Green Eyes which is comprised of various shades of purple, and I have yet to have anyone mistake me for an incompetent boxer.

Estee Lauder Mad Men Collection

I don’t know what happened, but I never hopped aboard the Mad Men crazy train.  Not the first time I’ve been left out in the cold during a cultural phenomenon, and certainly not the last.

Estee Lauder has sort of belatedly tried to capture the frenzy with a teensy, tiny Mad Men Collection.  They should have just called it the Mad Men Duo and been done with it.

You’ve got a cherry red lipstick and a rose cream blush.  Nothing earth-shattering.  Although I have come to appreciate a nice cherry lipstick, it just has to be a bit sheer.
