Wear This/Drink That: Mad Men Edition

In honor of tonight’s season premiere of AMC’s Mad Men, Estee Lauder launched a simple, but beautiful limited edition batch of products inspired by the show. The period drama is one of my absolute favorite shows, not only because of the killer acting and brilliant writing (…and my massive crush on Jon Hamm), but also because the costuming and makeup design is spot on. I just love watching the changes in trends and years reflect in their faces. I also love watching the cocktails they shake up throughout the show.

Wear This: Estee Lauder Mad Men Collection

Estee Lauder captured the essence of the show perfectly with this collection, the second Mad Men inspired cosmetic line by the company, with a modern take on shades worn by sixties sirens. Even the packaging pays homage to the golden days, with classic Estee Lauder sixties-era replica cosmetic cases. madmenestee2 The coordinating Mad Men trio includes See Thru Blush in Light Show – a sheer rosy pink powder blush ($50, presumably pricier because of the awesome case), Rich Lipstick in Pinkadelic – a creamy warm medium pink lipstick with a satin finish ($30), and Nail Lacquer in Pink Paisley – a powdery baby pink polish ($24).

Very Joan Halloway. Pair it with a cat eye and some soft neutrals on your lids and you’re good to go!
