COOL TRIPS. PINK SLIPS. SEXY LIPS.
Posted on March 16, 2013 by Teresa Cannata'
“If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” is a simple and wise saying, something which many creative minds try not to forget when it comes to repeating or improving their achievements. After five smashing seasons, the AMC show Mad Men is back. The premiere of the sixth season will be a special two-hour episode, which will be aired on April 7th, 2013. The creator Matthew Weiner will surely have many surprises in store for the show’s audience, but he will also try to stick to the “science fiction in the past” concept which has made it so successful.
The same attitude must have inspired the creative minds at Estee Lauder, the American make-up brand which teamed up with the show in 2012; the result was a beautiful mini-collection which included pressed powder and lipstick. This year, just before the Mad Men premiere, they have launched the spring 2013 collection, which includes blush, lipstick and nail varnish. Different tones of pink and a spectacular 60s-inspired packaging characterize all the products.
The See Through blush is available in Light Show, a soft pink tone which adds a rosy light to forehead, temples and chin. The enameled compact with mirror and the box are replicas of actual designs from Estée Lauder’s collections from the 60s.
The Rich, Rich lipstick is presented in Pinkadelic, a rich lipcolour with a satin finish. This lipstick is named after one of the most famous Lauder’s lipstick formulas from the 60s.
The latest addition to the collection is the nail lacquer in Pink Paisley, a cool pink tone with a glossy finish.
I personally don’t wear pink make-up because it doesn’t suit my complexion, but the aesthetic quality of this collection is impressive and highly attractive. As a fan of anything coming from the past, inspired to old products and visually appealing, I can see myself taking the compact out of my bag to powder my nose and wink at myself in the mirror. A girl can dream of being Joan Holloway, right?
