Is there a general Estee Lauder Thread? There needs to be. They have been coming out with some really interesting collections and products lately.

I just found these 2 posts on British Beauty Blogger. EL is coming out with paint pots in January according to this blogger. Let's see if they work like the Mac ones.

Edit - I found these pics from another Blogger from the UK.

There is now! I think that the only previous ones had been for specific collections, but there's no reason there shouldn't be a general thread like there is for other brands.

I am SO getting that blush!!! And yes, I saw the new paint pots on the NM site - tempted to get a couple. I wish I could see them in person.

I read somewhere that the spring collection is going to be EL site-exclusive. What's up with THAT? I've started stalking......
....it's supposed to be out in January, but I wish they'd narrow it down some!

lord and taylor has a great gift set with a lilly pulitzer bag!
I saw this. I read an article that says there will be a total of (I think) 8 and each retailer will have a different design. I want to pull the trigger on this so bad but I am waiting for the new paint pots and that gorgeous gelee blush to arrive first.

I picked up 3 Stay-on Paint eyeshadows today. I really want 4 more. They look smaller than the Mac Paint Pots but I'm hoping they perform just as well if not better since they are more expensive. I bought the green one, a pewter color and one that was burgundyish. But now that I'm looking at it, the burgundy one looks kind of coppery. I have to check again online to make sure they gave me the right one. The colors were really nice though. It will be hard not to get all of them. I think that purple one will be very popular as well. Oh and I found these at Macy's. They told me they had just come in yesterday. I'm figuring they will be at all counters soon.

I also saw some light colors in the nail polish, they were not in a special display so I can't be positive it they are new. I did see a light grassy green, a light pink, light coral and a light turquoise which I remember seeing in promo images.

Anxious to hear how you like these! I want to try them too.... Although I have to say that I love the old EL cream shadows, and the Maybelline version I love (Bad to the Bronze is my go-to for an easy everyday eye).

Okay. I will report back when I've tried them.

I ordered Tease as well by 2 day shipping. I should have it by Wednesday I think. I can't wait to get this. But if the Pretty Naughty collection is online only I wonder what EL counters are getting for their Spring collection?

Good point....I wonder if it's a 'staged' launch - they'll do it online first, and then send to counters? I didn't have the 2-day ship option, only the offer for a deluxe sample size of 2 of their skin serums....bummer.....I would like to have got it sooner. I ordered 2 of the blushes.

I picked up one of the new "cream" shadows today. Played it safe and got "Sinister", which close to black, but as the most breathtaking blue and plum and silver shimmer. The texture is interesting, a little like the Chanel Illusion d'Ombres, but a little creamier. It has that same, bouncy, spongy quality as the IdO's. I wanted to try one out before committing, but I might have to go back for the bright purple and the cobalt blue.

Playing around with swatching, they are easy to apply sheerly, but can be built up to true-to-pan colour. They're very moist at first, but seem to set pretty well after a few seconds. We'll see how they fare on my lids.

The counter I went to also still had the limited items from the Fall collection, so I ended up picking up both lipsticks. I'd been thinking about them forever and EL always seems to have such an underrated lipstick formula. Now I really have to stop spending. Until next week.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts on these, katred
