I finally found an Estée Lauder thread hiding in here. Anyone excited about the little Mad Men collection that just came out? Or any of the Lilly Pulitzer GWPs?

I saw the Mad Men collection today at Nordstrom and it's really nice. The boxes the items come in are nicer than last year (more like keepsakes than disposable), and the products are great. I got the blush (powder this time), lipstick and nail polish. The lipstick is my favorite, the color is a gorgeous rosy pink. Bestthingsinbeauty reviewed two of the items on her blog already if you want to see swatches.

Thanks! I just checked out her two posts on the collection. They make me excited that I ordered both, and the nail polish as well. I agree, this year the packaging looks more special than the last Mad Men collection. They'll be here on Monday. I can't wait to play with 'em.

I love the lipstick color too - can't wait to receive it. I ordered all 3 pieces - I'm such a Mad Men freak but missed out on last year's collection. I'm glad this year's blush is a powder (my preference).

I also ordered the highlighter and shadow palette - between the EL highlighter and the one from Dior's Champagne collection (NM exclusive), I wonder if either is similar to Cruel Gardenia? I think CG is maybe a bit pinker in tone, but they're all so 'light', I wonder if there's a difference?

I went crazy with the summer collection yesterday. I hate summer collections normally but this one is so pretty. I bought the eyeshadow palette, the highlighter plus backup, the new Bronze Goddess bronzer in Light, the fuschia lipstick and Bronze Goddess perfume. I wanted the eyeliner but none of the 3 stores I went to had received it yet.

Heatwave (the highlighter) is gorgeous. Last years illuminator gelee was too dark for my pale complexion. This one is perfect. Got rid of my Whisper of Gilt because I love this even more. The lipsticks are to die for and I will go back for the coral one. Skipping the glosses. They are way to sheer and I don't really wear gloss in the summer.

I passed on the Mad Men Collection. Just not worth the prices for colors I could dupe at the drugstore.

I was tempted to run out today and pick up the collection but I decided to wait a bit. I haven't seen the eyeliner on any of the sites yet. I wonder what is the hold up. I want the palette and highlighter and eyeliner. I hadn't considered the lipsticks but I will check them out.

Bought the palette the day it was released and I absolutely love it. Already did two looks with it and it's amazing. I'm not even a fan of bright colors, but that teal is gorgeous. I like this year's palette better than last year's when I did a side by side comparison. The palette is all I picked up. I have more highlighters than I can count, but would have loved to get Heatwave.

I like Estee Lauder lipsticks, so I might check out the summer collection for those. Perhaps I might get the gold highlighter too, but I'm not feeling a lot of the products. :/
 
I'm hoping to swatch Heatwave tomorrow so I can compare it to MAC Whisper of Gilt and Dior's new highlighter. I also want to see the eyeliner, I wonder what the hold up is. Thanks MaitaiFluff for mentioning the Lily Pulitzer GWP, I'm hoping to grab it at Macy's tomorrow with my purchase!

I bought both of the lipsticks from this collection and I love them. Two totally different colors that will look great in the Spring/Summer...heck even NOW! You ladies are making me want to go back for the palette!

I swatched the lipsticks today and thought they were great too. I passed on the coral one since I have so many corals, but I picked up the fuchsia one even though I had no intention of buying any lipsticks! I also loved the highlighter, it is gorgeous. I was surprised to like the roller ball lipgloss as well, it feels nice on the skin and the smell is yummy. The coral one has more color than the pink one so I got the coral.

I picked up the highlighter, palette and Hot spell nail polish and 2 lipsticks from another collection. They did not have the eyeliner duo yet nor the lipglosses. I got the Lily Pullitzer GWP that is available from Macy's too. Really cute floral makeup bag with floral pattern empty travel bottles. Really cute. GWP also included a choice of lipsticks and some skin care. I spent enough to get the 2nd GWP which was an eyeshadow palette in a floral case.

I still want the eyeliner. Has anyone picked this up? It doesn't seem to be available anywhere. I'm wondering if there were production issues.

I didn't know there was a second GWP for spending even more? I could have easily done that. I most have not noticed it when shopping online. I work at Neiman's and we don't have the liner either. I'm guessing production issues. Hopefully we get it soon. There will be more Lilly Pulitzer GWPs to collect for my mum (drawn out Mother's Day gift) so I can pick that up then.

Mad Men collection is not doing it for me even though I'm a huge fan of the show. The summer collection is looking to die for though.....and I hate summer and most summer collections usually.

My fave EL products are their kohl liners, they're ah-mazing! I wear Blackened Cocoa and Blackened Plum all the time. They're creamy, pigmented, smudgeable and long lasting.

I like the Mad Men stuff and I LOVE the show, but it's just too expensive and dupeable for what it is.

I purchased Heat Wave and the Batik Sun palette. I feel like I waited ages for them to be released! The duo liner was also not available here. Does anyone know how Heat Wave compares to Whisper of Gilt EDSF?

The beauty look book has a comparison. http://www.thebeautylookbook.com/2013/03/estee-lauder-heat-wave-illuminating.html Btw I went to Saks today and they didn't have the duo liquid liner either.
