Beauty News: Est?e Lauder Goes Haute Couture
February 21, 2006
Coming in May, high fashion and classic cosmetics will collide when Tom Ford releases his revamped version of the famed AzurÃ©e collection from EstÃ©e Lauder. The former Gucci guruâ€™s forthcoming line (the limited edition Amber Nude collection is selling now) will be packaged in Lauderâ€™s original signature shade of aqua blue with an exaggerated gold insignia. The AzurÃ©e collection is designed for the worldly jet-setter- ideal for any tropical vacation. In total, there are 25 pieces in the spring collection. The centerpieces are three color families â€” AzurÃ©e, Cap BronzÃ©e and St. TropÃ©e â€” each with two lip colors, priced at $22 each; a $28.50 cheek glow, and a $30 eye duo. AzurÃ©e is built around peach tones with a splash of coral. Cap BronzÃ©e’s color palette is warm tones of sand, while St. TropÃ©e’s colors are mauve-based. These colors will look fabulous with a tan, real or faux. Look for the full AzurÃ©e line in late spring at SAKS.com.
