As you can see this is starting to become a habit, me doing mash-ups due to work being too busy! Bear with me, I couldn't really wait! I had a little catch up session yesterday with the ladies at Estee Lauder and was presented a little collection of what's to come in December! As it stands, I was told that I am 1 of 3 people who has this collection so I was dying to show it off to you and to also work a look with it! Let me present:
Pure Colour Cyber Eyes: Gelee Powder Eyeshadows
Feast your eyes on these babies! 6 richly pigmented eyeshadows utilising Estee Lauder's Tribrid Prisma Shine technology, last seen in the limited edition Gelee Highlighter. To put it simply, products with Prima Shine technology are all-in-one liquid, powder and gel products, that produces a malleable, flexible finish of high shine. The finish is long-lasting, non-fading, non-flaking and non-creasing. Big promises and it delivers as I will show you later! So when used dry, these shadows give a subtle sheen but it's when applied with a wet brush that the magic shines through, literally! What you get is a super shiny finish that seems to get shinier as you layer!
The colours are: Cyber Pink, Cyber Copper, Cyber Green, Cyber Silver, Cyber Teal and Cyber Lilac. RRP £19.00 for 0.9g.
They will be in counters nationwide and online at www.esteelauder.co.uk from 26th December 2011 but will be previewing at Harrods from 31st October.
In this collection are also 6 Pure Colour Intense Kajal Eyeliners and 3 Sumptuous Extreme Mascaras, which I will talk about in another post!
Anyway let me introduce you to Nevena:
Face Prep: Bioderma Crealine H20 Micellar Water, La Roche-Posay Thermal Spa Water Spray, Emma Hardie Hydrating Lighter Lotion, SUQQU Repair Essence, Guerlain Meteorites Perles Light-Diffusing Perfecting Primer, SUQQU Lip Essence Cream R.
The look I wanted to create was a combination of Lauren Hutton in the 70s, all glowy and gorgeous but yes because of the cyber factor in these shadows, I wanted a gleam in the eyes that was futuristic and hyper-metallic! And at the same time young, fresh and modern. So how does one achieve that? Have a look at the results, I am quite pleased! I have included an "eyes down" shot to show you the full effect. bear in mind that none of these are retouched and shot using my Blackberry! Voila!
Face: Estee Lauder Double Wear Light Foundation, Estee Lauder Double Wear Concealer.
Eyes: Estee Lauder Cyber Copper, Cyber Teal, Cyber Green, Cyber Lilac, Cyber Pink, Cyber Silver, Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Mascara in Extreme Black, Paris-Berlin Beige Pencil.
Eyebrows: SUQQU Balancing Eyebrow Palette No 2, MAC Clear Brow Fix.

What do you think? I'm absolutely besotted with this look. It's got a nice combination of sci-fi futurism and yet old school glamour. Below is a close up of the eyes after shooting for 7 hours non-stop, just to show you how good the Prisma Shine technology is! I didn't touch up once!
As always please feel free to comment and if you have any questions, I would be most delighted to answer and discuss!
