I filmed a very short vlog last night, about the make up look I had. It’s been a very long time since I last vlogged and it took me a long time, almost 2 hours to get it right, despite it being a 2.5 min long video. Vlogging makes me exceedingly self-conscious because I personally don’t think I look very good on screen, only at certain angles and filming really accentuates that fact. I really take my hat off to youtube stars (Michelle Phan, Xteener, Frmheadtotoe) who are so natural at what they do. They are not only attractive but exceedingly confident which adds to their appeal. Maybe, hopefully I’ll get better/more comfortable, with more vlogs.

PURE COLOR VIVID SHINE
Launching in August 2012
This Fall Estée Lauder and Tom Pecheux dare you to play in a world of bold, luminous and impactful color with new Pure Color Vivid Shine – the latest wave of shades that dazzle eyes, lips and nails with sparkling shine and chromatic color. This modern spectrum of color features new finishes and textures. Pure Color Vivid Shine is a collection of bold shades for women and makeup artists who want to indulge their love of color.
“As a makeup artist, I need vivid color. Vivid Shine is inspired by the models and women I work with in Fashion. I created this collection so every woman could play with color that is vibrant and alive.” -Tom Pecheux, Creative Makeup Director, Estée Lauder
Accentuate eyes in a range of seductive, stylish shades that deliver maximum color impact and dimension with the newest Pure Color Gelee Powder Eyeshadows. Magnified, multi-faceted, magnificent, these future forward shadows define where innovation and high-style meet with a high-performance formula comprised of advanced technology and texture.
True Vision™ Technology — a crystalline (polymer) laminate that magnifies and amplifies color with a glowing metallic finish envelopes lids with high-intensity pigments in one velvety smooth application and a “tribrid” system of liquid, powder and gel all-in-one, creates exceptional, non-creasing, non-fading color and long-lasting wear that won’t fade. The formula also reaches new heights and dimensions with a bouncy malleable texture, for high-definition color impact that can go from matte to the highest chromatic shine. Accompanied by a specially designed sponge-mitt applicator, these versatile shadows can be worn dry for a sophisticated look, or wet for a bold, full color finish – making them every makeup artists’ dream!
Pure Color Gelee Powder Eyeshadows bring color to life in two weightless, incredibly smooth finishes:
Vivid Shine Finish: In this collection, there are 6 limited edition Vivid Shine shadows that feature a unique blend ofspecially treated glow and metallic pearl duo complex. This luminous finish catches and reflects light, creating the purest levels of multi-dimensional color illumination for unforgettable eyes that glow!
Vivid Shine Finish (Limited Edition) Pure Color Gelée Powder EyeShadow in Ultra Marine is featured in the vlog above.
Cyber Metallic Finish: These 10 shimmering Cyber Metallic shades transform eyes to a hyper-metallic, futuristic look.
Saturated with color, sparkling shine and dimension, lips are the center of attention with new Pure Color Vivid Shine Lipstick. A breakthrough in lip color never experienced before, these gorgeous lipsticks range is a seductive spectrum of shades from vivid to sublime and are infused with powerful technologies and benefits.
True Vision™ Technology envelopes lips with decadent color, and a sheer, lustrous shine, while Amplified Dimensional Pearl Technology is a unique diamond-like pearl cluster consisting of up to eight different shaped and colored pearls. These pearls fuse together to reflect a multi-hued, multi-faceted spectrum of color for an amplified, sparkling finish on lips. Each shade contains silver and gold sparkle pearls which neutralize lips, making them look beautiful on all skin tones for a faceted, sequined shine that sparkles.
Lips are further enhanced with Pure Color Vivid Shine Lipstick through exceptional benefits that include:
– A new moisturizing texture saturates lips with sheer, creamy emollients that smooth and condition lips for hours – increasing lip moisturization by 23% in 4 weeks!
– A natural polymer complex creates a pliable, glossy film network, providing lips with a sophisticated, dimensional shine that lasts for hours.
– A high performance wax complex forms a matrix that entraps emollients and pigments in place on lips for lasting coverage and stay-true color in each and every shade.
Pure Color Vivid Shine Lipstick in Electric Mauve is featured in the vlog above.
