More.

More!



That’s exactly what Estée Lauder’s new Mad Men Collection Rich, Rich Lipstick in Pinkadelic gives you.

More! — as in the actual quantity of product, because each tube contains 0.13 ounces — almost twice as much as the tiny 0.07-ounce tube of Cherry released with last year’s Mad Men Collection.

Cherry was meant to hearken back to the smaller vintage lipstick tubes of yesteryear, but Mad Men fans must have wanted more. Fortunately, EL obliged. Limited edition Pinkadelic contains the same amount of product as the twist-up lipsticks in Estée Lauder’s permanent line.

Unfortunately, Pinkadelic also comes with a higher price tag… It’s $30, which is considerably more than the $18.50-22 Estée Lauder usually asks for a 0.13-ounce tube of lipstick.

Now, I get the rationale. I mean, Pinkadelic is supposed to be special. It’s limited edition and comes with a fancy box and golden pouch (which aren’t shown here… I think Tabs hid them!), but I can’t help wanting more.

Not necessarily more product, but more — I don’t know — something else.

I like the color. You can never go wrong with another flattering, slightly shiny sheer neutral rosy pink, but it only lasts about an hour on my lips, and there is that higher price…

I think Pinkadelic may have been made with hard-core Mad Men fans in mind, and/or girls who like to collect complete collections.

Oh, and if you like the color but want something that lasts a little longer, check out Chanel’s $32 Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick in Boy.

Netflix streams and ballet dreams…

I think I forgot to mention this. I saw a wonderful documentary about young ballet dancers on Netflix a couple weeks ago called First Position. Have you seen it?

It follows a group of young people (girls and boys) as they pursue their dreams of becoming professional ballet dancers, all the way through training, injuries, and up to the Youth America Grand Prix, a prestigious worldwide competition where the best of the best are awarded dance scholarships and jobs.

I’m so inspired by people who are passionate about their art, whatever it is, and I’m a little envious when someone discovers their calling at such a young age.

Shoot…I’m 37 and I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up! :)

If you’ve seen it, let me know what you thought.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

    Man, Karen, maybe this collection has some kind of magic, because you look TOO FRICKKING GORGEOUS here!!! Don’t worry about the pouch. You’ll find it somewhere unexpectedly. Tabs probably took it for research purposes ;)

      Hi Agata,

      It’s the hair; it’s in that stage where it’s behaving itself, haha!

      How was your Tuesday? Mine went by in a flash. I can’t believe it’s already dinnertime here on my side of the country.

  3. Ellen says:

    I saw First Position with my mom last summer, and we loved it! It’s heartfelt, funny, sad, and uplifting – hope you like it!

  4. Jennifer L says:

    Beautiful look!

  5. That really is a pretty shade of lipstick! The packaging is cute too. I really am a sucker for pretty packaging. And I have to agree with everyone else… your hair is SO pretty!

    I thoroughly enjoyed First Position. I’m not a dancer (and I dearly wish I could dance!) and enjoyed the peek into the highly competitive world of ballet. The best “character” is the little Caucasian/Japanese boy. He’s hilarious.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Boobooninja,

      He was funny. I also liked Aram Bell and his friend. I thought they were very talented and driven!

      • BooBooNinja says:

        What are your other favourite dance movies?
        Off the top of my head, some classics are Strictly Ballroom, Dirty Dancing, and Center Stage. I do love ballet movies and documentaries though, and would appreciate any recommendations!

    You look beautiful! But what a shame the lipstick lasts so little on the lips!

    Karen, Your hair look amazing!! :)

    Hey Karen,

    Agree with everyone, you look amazing! I wish my hair looked like that after a few days. Alas it just looks like it needs a wash :P I caved and bought Pinkadelic and the compact. I bought them last year too and I don’t even watch Mad Men! They’re so pretty though and I love the vintage look and feel. Definitely a hefty price tag though. Pity the quality didn’t match the cost. Hope you’re having a great week! :D

    I LOVE this pink lipstick and I love the old style of the packaging! I’m not a lauder fan but this is cute!
