I must be frank (when am I not?), I audibly gasped when I open the box containing the limited-edition *Estee Lauder by Voilette Poppy Sauvage Collection (also available at Violet Grey). Emblazoned in a wash of navy and rouge and designed by Estee Lauder Creative Director Violette this very French six piece range captures the relaxed allure of a sunlit summer day…polished yet effortless, these are formulas, textures and hues that brilliantly suit every individual.
Kindly scroll on for more details, swatches and images of the collection in action as well as the Bottom Line…
*Pure Color Envy Sculpting Eyeshadow 5-Color Palette in Les Nudes de Soleil (also available at Violet Grey): Featuring five warm rosy neutral shades in both satin and matte finishes, this palette is so easy to wear. The shades are buttery smooth with excellent color payoff and resist creasing for the entire day. I love sweeping the luminous rosy bronze all over my lids, blend the champagne hue up to my brow bones and put a touch of the matte warm camel brown in my crease for definition.
*Soft Glow for Lips & Cheeks in 01 La Rose (also available at Violet Grey): Possessing a translucent gossamer texture, this highlighter is dewy rather than shimmery, resulting in a glowing canvas that looks bouncy and lit-from-within. I like to apply it to the high points of my face and down the bridge of my nose and deeply appreciate that it also doubles as a luminous lip balm.
*Pure Color Envy Sculpting Blush Duo in Soleil Dore and Camelia (also available at Violet Grey): This blush duo is super soft and velvety…the texture must be tried to be believed! The lush tan bronze is shimmer-free for an ultra natural finish and the lively peachy pink Camelia creates a fresh flush with a minimum of product. I’ll be wearing this again on my cheeks tomorrow…it’s that good.
Bottom Line: I hope you enjoyed this pictorial overview of the *Estee Lauder by Voilette Poppy Sauvage Collection (also available at Violet Grey). Each member of the collection is remarkably flattering and harmonizes so well with its counterparts, making it an incredibly worthy limited-edition pursuit. In case you couldn’t tell, I am beyond enchanted.

Good things ahead, including swatches of the NM Exclusive Tom Ford Lip Lacquer Extreme, Sisley-Paris Hydra Booster Duo (just in time for the warmer months) and the makeup products that I consistently repurchase along with a host of new product procurements. I am also in the midst of catching up on your latest batch of emails and comments…thanks, as always, for your patience!
