Beauty Review: Into The Night With Estee Lauder

Estee Lauder's 2007 Holiday collection, Into The Night, is for the social butterfly who is running around the city with shopping bags in hand and by night is mingling in her most fab cocktail dress marking her martini glass with her crystal ruby red lips. Sound like you? Well, if you love rich metallic hues of gold, copper, bronze, and red then indulge in this collection! The collection consists of two limited edition shimmer powders, Signature Shimmer Powder in Gold Pearl and Rose Pearl, and Platinum Illuminator Loose Shimmer Powder. Both can be brushed onto the face and body to give your skin a beautiful sheen. For eyes that sparkle apply the Double Wear Stay-in-Place Shadowstick in either Gold Pearl or Golden Peach alone or as a base. Add some intensity by applying Signature Silky Eye Shadow Duo in striking pearl Citrine (warm amber gold/olive) or semi-matte Ginger (nude rose/plum-brown). Glam up those lips with Pure Color Lipstick in any of the following gorgeous shades: Gold Ruby, Platinum Blush, Tiger Eye, and Platinum Amber (stunning gold amber). Give those lips a festive glimmer and shine with Pure Color Crystal Gloss in Gold Berry (my personal fave!) or Light Copper. Don't forget to give your nails some love! Make them dazzle in Pure Color Nail Lacquer in Copper Rose or Satin Gold!

I really love the duo shadow Citrine because the hues are perfect together! The metallic colours are really wearable because the texture is sheer and silky. They lasted a whole day of furniture and baby shopping! The colours were subtle enough for day and the shimmer wasn't overkill. For the evening, I added a deep forest green in a matte texture to the outer lash line and all across the bottom lash line. Fabulous! And my favourite part of all is the Pure Color Crystal Gloss in Gold Berry! It's a rich warm berry-red with gold flecks and would look gorgeous on any skin tone. The gloss is a full colour but is still luminous and shimmery. I used the Pure Color Lipstick in Platinum Amber over top in the center of my lips to give the illusion of a fuller lip. The colour and shine lasted through a few cups of coffee and didn't crust or cake on the inner part of the lip like some glosses do. Gold Berry is my fave new lip colour for the holidays! If red is too bold a statement for you, Gold Berry is the perfect alternative.

Into The Night is available on-counter now and the best part is that it will be around for four months! So, glam up the season in one of the hottest collections this holiday! Happy shopping!
