Estée Lauder has partnered with André Courrèges for a festival of French accent marks and also the epic Courrèges Estée Lauder Collection, a 13-piece limited edition line. The range blends the feeling of an embellished Courrèges mini dress, and Estée Lauder’s progressive product design, seen through the Courrèges lens. Here, the full rundown on what you’ll want to don this spring, modeled above by Kendall Jenner.
Lip Visor, $26
With a vivid, plexi-like shine reminiscent of Courrèges’ fondness for transparency, an ordinary gloss this is not. A rich balmy formula, it imparts a luscious, wet effect. Lips feel instantly smoothed and soothed, with an impactful pigment pay-off that is impossible to ignore, without trying too hard.
Available in See-Through and Coral Mini.
Super Gloss, $26
High coverage, high-impact focal point lips! With the perfect pop of high reflectivity pink, this dramatic gloss features a special delivery system with an innovative flow-through tip to allow for an easy-on, flawless application with every swipe.
Available in Rosy Future.
Super Lashes, $32
Sixties-era spider lashes get a 21st-century reboot with these long, full, natural-looking eye accessories that are perfectly shaped to provide a striking flutter and next-level definition. Measure the strips along your lash line, trim accordingly and add a thin layer of lash glue along the perimeter, waiting 30 seconds for the adhesive to become tacky before pressing it onto the inner corner of lids and working your way outward. To remove, gently pull the lashes away from the edge.
*Lash-glue sold separately, and not available at the Estée Lauder counter.
Eye Amplifier, $26
The graphic white personified by Courrèges original moon girls inspires this new compact, which features a clear, twist-off lid that encloses an ultra-luxe eyeshadow. Applied best with a brush, the weightless powder formula has been spiked with a special siliconic polymer that allows the product to attach itself seamlessly to the skin. Use wet or dry for shimmering, radiant dimension and a glass-like finish that lasts for hours without creasing.
Available in Aqua Silver and Black Silver.
Eye Glide Pencil, $22
Metallic accents have long illustrated the oft-publicized dream of the future perfect. Here, they become reality with a creamy silver pencil that glides onto eyes to shade, define and smolder. Create structure and depth by blending across lids with your fingertips, or line and define along upper and lower lashes for a bold, standout statement.
Available in Silver Streak.
Iridescent Ball Highlighter, $26
“I want to let the light into my clothes,” Courrèges would say of his preference for lucidity above all else, which has inspired this iridescent powder gelée. The innovative plastic orb applicator that houses a sensorial cream can be dotted onto cheeks for an allover polished glow or onto temples, cheekbones, and other high planes of the face for a concentrated highlight.
Lip + Cheek Ball, $26
This revolutionary jelly-like gloss has a full-throttle shine and a translucent berry hue that adds a slight tint to lips, while imparting a rosy glow to cheeks for a happy flush.
Available in Ultra Pink.
Ultra White EyeLiner, $26
White is the new black with this vibrant, opaque liquid eyeliner that provides a brilliant vinyl finish in the classic color code of the house of Courrèges. The super-fine eyeliner boasts a dip-in fine brush applicator to scrawl the perfect feline flick with a shocking pop of starkly bright, white pigment.
Available in Lunar White.
Illuminations Face Powder, $32
Create glowing, otherworldly skin with this silky-effect powder. Brush over cheeks, forehead, and brow bones for a burst of pure light that is velvety-soft with an impeccable, long-lasting quality.
Kabuki Brush, $36
This lush bouncy tool adds a ritualistic feeling to the simple act of adornment. Luxuriously soft, white bristles give a uniform finish to mattifying, highlighting and contouring efforts, while working particularly well in tandem with the Illuminations Face Powder.
The Courrèges Estée Lauder Collection will be available at select Estée Lauder counters nationwide and esteelauder.com beginning this month. Is this a collection you’ll be trying? Tell me all in the comments.
