Something New: Estee Lauder Pure Color Eyeshadow

"I think eyeshadow brings to a woman a lot of self-confidence and pwoer.  The new Pure Color EyeShadow shaes and finishes are sensual and powerful and I love them.  These are definitely my babies." --- Tom Pecheux, Creative Makeup Director for Estee Lauder
I agree.  I don't wear much eyeshadow at work, but doing eye  makeup for clients gives out a nice "ooomph" on their overall look.  I got one client telling me that she looks "awake and fresh" after eyeshadow application.

I don't own a lot of Estee Lauder makeup because I've always thought Estee Lauder skincare is best bought instead of makeup.  Makeup brands do evolve, and Estee Lauder is venturing into something new, from the Estee Lauder Pure Color Lipgloss now comes something for the "windows of our souls".

Estee Lauder and Creative Makeup Director Tom Pecheux introduce the new definition of high-impact color with a vibrant collection of eyeshadows that envelop the eyes in raw attitude and style.  Long-lasting pigments, fade resistant formulas and four buildable finishes are fused with bold, rich hues to create infinitely versatile eye looks.
