Fall in Love with The New Estée Lauder Mad Men Collection.

So excited for this new line, I am a huge fan of Mad Men and think this new collection is beautiful. Love the colors and the retro styling of the packaging. 

The Estee Lauder Mad Men Collection is a new limited edition makeup collection inspired by the award winning drama, Mad Men. Estee Lauder partners with Mad Men and will introduce two new limited edition makeup collections that will debut in March just in time for the Season Five premiere. The second makeup collection will coincide with the 2013 Season Six premiere.

The NEW collection features two classic makeup items inspired by the look of the women featured in Mad Men’s ® 1960’s New York City setting. Bold, red lips and creamy, rouged cheeks define this iconic moment in time:

- Estée Lauder Mad Men® Collection Lipstick in Cherry features a cream satin finish and continual moisture delivered to lips for smooth, rich color.

- Estée Lauder Mad Men® Collection Creme Rouge in Evening Rose is an easily blendable and buildable formula that highlights cheeks with a dewy, smooth and natural finish.

 - Estée Lauder Mad Men® Collection Lipstick and Estée Lauder Mad Men® Collection Creme Rouge are packaged in a fluted golden case placed in a leather-like gold pouch, and the outer cartons are a custom design inspired by the Estée Lauder packaging from the 1960’s.

Available for a limited time beginning March 2012 exclusively at Bloomingdale’s stores nationwide, www.bloomingdales.com and www.esteelauder.com.

Estée Lauder Mad Men® Collection Lipstick in Cherry, $25.00

Estée Lauder Mad Men® Collection Creme Rouge in Evening Rose, $40.00

Avon and Estée Lauder under fire as Peta reveals cosmetic brands ‘ordered animal testing’

PETA has lashed out at Avon and Estee Lauder after finding the cosmetic companies are paying for animal testing. The People for Ethical Treatment of Animals announced on their website today that the skincare companies are no longer “cruelty-free” because they are being forced to follow regulations enforced by the Chinese government.

According to PETA, Mary Kay was also included in the list of companies that “harm animals” in the Asian country.

British brand Avon, who recently hired Alesha Dixon as the face, branded the claims ‘misleading’ but admit they are forced to conduct testing in China due to health laws.

A spokesperson said: ‘Some select products may be required by law in a few countries to undergo additional safety testing, which potentially includes animal testing, under the directive of a government or health agency.

‘In these instances, Avon will first attempt to persuade the requesting authority to accept non-animal test data.

‘When those attempts are unsuccessful, Avon must abide by local laws and submit the products for additional testing. In 2011, this affected three tenths of one percent of Avon’s products.’

‘There have been some incorrect and misleading claims made by animal rights organisations. Avon neither conducts nor requests animal testing.’

Estée Lauder have yet to comment.

Both brands have been ‘cruelty-free’ for two decades following campaigns by Peta in the late 80′s.

Does this new revelation by PETA make you want to stop using the brands? Does it affect your decision making?
