On Wednesday, I had the great pleasure of trotting along to the Estée Lauder HQ in London to take a gander at their new Autumn 2011 releases. The Pure Color Modern Mercury collection has been created by international makeup artist, and Lauder's creative director, Tom Pecheux and offers a range of earthy tones and metallic textures contrasting with bold lips and matte finishes.
I want to share with you several products from the new range but understandably, first and foremost, my eyes were navigated to this gorgeous lipstick from the new collection. Fuchsia Velvet is a Pure Color lipstick offering a semi-matte finish without being drying or chalky. Enriched with apricot kernel and Shea butter, it feels lovely and creamy on your lips and is highly pigmented giving a real punch of colour. It is simply divine with a sweet, fruity fragrance. Be warned however, this is definitely a lipstick to be applied with a lip brush.
I would describe the shade as a bright magenta with blue undertones. It is one of those lipsticks that can make your teeth look super white! I like matte lipsticks so this was always going to be a winner for me, but I love that it still has a subtle glossy sheen to the finish. I was trying to think of which MAC lipstick it best compares to...and I decided it is similar to Girl about Town but is definitely a lot more vibrant.
Pure Color Modern Mercury is coming soon online and in stores. You can always be notified by email once the products have been released if you so wish.
