impatiently waiting for this dreamy Estee Lauder x Derek Lam makeup collaboration to launch ever since spotting the goods backstage at the Derek Lam Spring 2014 runway show last fall. The collection was inspired by the same looks that models were strutting down the runway with: natural sun-kissed-looking skin and gold lids with a pop of navy blue liner. Runway makeup is normally out there (aka makeup looks you probably wouldn’t ever wear), but all of these products are actually everyday essentials.
The Estee Lauder x Derek Lam Collection comes equipped with black mascara, smoked gold eyeshadow, kajal eyeliner in navy, smoked blush lipstick and a lipgloss in barely gold. While $85 might seem like a lot to drop on some makeup post-holiday shopping extravaganza, Estee Lauder products are some of the best products that money can buy. And let’s not forget that it comes housed in a satin navy Derek Lam clutch that features the designers’ signature dumbbell clasp. Basically, you’re getting a major deal on a complete new makeup wardrobe that you’ll actually use for once and a free designer clutch. But you should probably act fast on this one, as both fashionistas and beauty gurus are scooping up this set left and right.
