In November 2009, Estée Lauder named
world-renowned makeup artist Tom Pecheux Creative Makeup Director.
His first challenge: to create a beauty concept that links iconic French
beauty with an iconic American beauty brand.
The vision becomes reality as the new three piece Pure Color Night Collection has
just been released. Pure Color Night is a collection of three must-have
beauty products that enables women to experience the chicest of Paris at
night…from dusk to dawn.
The Estee Lauder Pure Color Night Collection includes:
- Pure Color Ombre Effect EyeShadow
in Naughty Black creates a smokey eye with smoldering impact.
Featuring a textured trio of matte, shimmer and sparkle, these dramatic
black/ brown shades can be used alone or together. $20.00
- Pure Color Luminous Powder
is an incredibly refined and lightweight powder with a luxurious creamy
texture. The Highlight shade adds a sensual glow to skin making
it look young, healthy and dewy. $40.00
Pure Color Lip Gelée
in Kiss Me saturates lips with a nude rose tint, giving the mouth
a just-bitten wet look. Water-like high shine polymers amplify the glass
like finish, ensuring a coveted seductive pout. $20.00
“I wanted to create the ultimate in
French sensuality and sexiness — black eyeshadow for a naughty, smokey
eye; highlighter for a healthy glow and lips that men will not be afraid
to kiss,” said Pecheux. Having seen Tom Pecheux work his magic backstage at Fashion Week, I have no doubt that this collection is stunning. It would be a must-have for me, except for its' limited availability.
The Estee Lauder Pure Color Night Collection is available for a limited time, beginning May 2010, in Paris
at Bon Marché Rive Gauche, Galeries Lafayette Haussmann and Printemps
Haussmann; in New York at
Bergdorf Goodman (June) and in London at Selfridges
