Product News: Estée Lauder Launches Violet Underground

Yet another major makeup brand has announced the arrival of their newest range of makeup for 2013 – this time Estée Lauder announcing Violet Underground.

“We created a dramatic fashion look with a touch of fantasy. Inspired by glam rock, women can play dress up with color and become a character that encompasses mystery, opulence, sex and confidence. It can transform her world.”
Tom Pecheux, Creative Makeup Director, Estée Lauder

The new limited edition trend collection for 2013, Pure Color Violet Underground is inspired by multiple cultures, styles and textures, and is the ultimate fusion of high style and street chic. The makeup in Pure Color Violet Underground takes glam rock to a new dimension with a fantastical aesthetic revolution of deep, vibrant violet and fuchsia tones.

The New Pure Color Five Color EyeShadow Palette in Violet Underground is a mysteriously rich mix of deep violet, crimson and fuchsia grounded with a sensual pale pink and a powerful matte black shade at the centre. The formula reaches new heights and textural dimension with an innovative ‘tribrid’ technology that allows for complete versatility with two finish options: apply wet for a vibrant-chrome charged flash of colour or dry for a subtle shine finish. Combined with the exclusive True Vision Technology™, the high-definition colour impact is amplified with a cyber-metallic finish that can create a range of daring looks.

Pure Color Five Color EyeShadow Palette in Violet Underground: RRP $ 90.00

New Pure Color Quick-Thick EyeLiner in Punker Black defines and lines eyes in a dramatic black ink. Blackened pigments glide on effortlessly with the easy-to-use marker-like tip. The precise application has the ability to transform a look from glamorous-chic with a thin line to punk-rock with a bold line in one dramatic stroke.
