Haul: Estee Lauder Illuminating Powder Gelee
The Pure Color Illuminating Powder Gelées are kind of a big deal in the world of face products. I liken them to the Mineralize Skin Finish done by MAC, but these have an air of refinement about them.
These are packed with more sheen than sparkle and with intense pigmentation. A little seems to go a very long way.
I noticed Topaz Chameleon while browsing my local cosmetics department a few months ago and was instantly smitten. So of course it’s no surprise that when Shimmering Sands debuted, I was all over it.
Of the two, I think Shimmering Sands will be the more popular shade. The bold copper tones of Topaz Chameleon make it a bit harder to wear, but for those with deeper skin or with a love for that summer glow – it’s perfect.
Much to my dismay, I missed out on the first installation of this product. Modern Mercury launched in the fall of last year as part of a very limited and oddly enough, a very hushed collection. Like most super limited products it was an instant hit and of course, near impossible to find after the fact.
Have you tried any of the Illuminating Powder Gelées?
