Estee Lauder Spring Summer 2013 Pure Color Cello Shots Review

Beauties, forgive me for being a month late to this party–but now that I’m here, I’m drinking all the champagne and never leaving. I’ve been rocking this collection for a straight month, but only now am having the chance to tell you about it. Its “acqua color” inspiration is divine. As Derek Zoolander sagely said, “Water is the essence of wetness and wetness is the essence of beauty,” in his faux ad for Aveda. It seems Tom Pecheux has taken a page from Derek’s book in a good way, with his stunning new Estee Lauder Spring Summer 2013 Pure Color Cello Shots Collection for cheeks and lips. You’ll love sheer, cellophane-like colors in pops of pink, red and orange. 


This season, I’ve been working a lot with what I call “acqua color”. It’s a gentle, watery look with just a touch of bright, vibrant color. – Tom Pecheux, Creative Makeup Director, Estée Lauder
