One look at the words, “See Thru,” on the box, and I assumed I’d need a heavy hand and lots o’layering to get the new budget-breaking $50 EstÃ©e Lauder Mad Men Collection See Thru Blush in Light Show to show up on my NC42 skin, but like Don Draper, this blush is full of surprises.
And it’s just in time! — along with the other two pieces in the limited edition Mad Men Collection — for the show’s sixth season, which premiers on AMC April 7.
Hmm… Do you recall last year’s two-piece Mad Men Collection? I wonder if these releases will be an annual thing like Bronze Goddess. If so, that has to please the partners at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce…
This year/season, EstÃ©e Lauder summoned a late ’60s makeup look with a pigmented, pink powder blush with laid-back shimmer that lays down loads of color with a single swipe.
I almost wish it didn’t last as long and contained less pigment, because I actually want another reason to carry this cute compact around, LOL! It’s hefty (must weigh half a pound), but I could stare at that pattern on the top of it for days… It’s based on a ’60s print EstÃ©e Lauder discovered in their archives.
Ouch about the price, but it comes with a luxurious experience — the pretty box, pouch, the push-button clasp, and the blush itself, which leaves cheeks flushed without looking heavy or unnatural. If you’re a girl/guy with a soft spot for high-end products, one-swipe blushes and AMC’s hit show, check out Light Show.
PRICE: $50 for a 0.26-ounce pan
AVAILABILITY: Available now at EstÃ©e Lauder counters and online

Zhooom! And there goes Monday…
So, Daylight Savings. I sure like the extra hour of sunlight at the end of the day. For the first time in months, it was actually light outside when El Hub got home from work, and when it’s daylight later like this I feel a little more motivated to work out or go for walks.
It certainly makes it easier to get up off the couch.
Hope you’re having a nice night. I just inhaled a big salad and a slice of veggie pizza, and now I’m watching Pretty in Pink on Netflix for the umpteenth time.
