Estée Lauder Modern Mercury Illuminating Powder Gelée!

The new Modern Mercury Collection from Estee Lauder, created by make up genius Tom Pecheux, is an amazing showcase of products with a focus on rich metallic eyes and soft glowy skin. Now most of you know that illuminators are definitely my weakness when it comes to make up, so it was only natural that my heart went a flutter for the new Illuminating Powder Gelée in Modern Mercury!
Blended out and heavy swatch
The Modern Mercury Illuminating Powder Gelée is a one-of-a-kind powder, gel and liquid formula illuminator. Now the tri-blend texture may sound strange but try this baby out and it’ll be a total “oh yeah” moment. The texture is beautifully light, smooth and buttery! The pearly shimmer is what gets me though, super pigmented and so finely milled that it just melts onto your skin, giving you that wonderful lit from within look. The colour is very pretty too, a warm pinky champagne, yet it adjusts with the light and how you apply it. Meaning that it’s quite flattering on all skin tones and can be used everywhere on the face! Use it on the high points of the face, on the eyes, or all over for a pearly glow, paler beauties could even use it as a blush/highlighter combo. The Illuminating Powder Gelée is truly stunning, and since it’s limited edition, I highly suggest you check this out stat!

    I really love this eye look. I wanted this look all about the eyes so I went with a toned down lippy. I feel I should have used a nude instead of pink. I’m not diggin’ the pink paired with the eyes…Freelance Fashion Makeup Artist Sydney
