Estée Lauder Pure Color Blush in Electric Pink: Review, Pictures and Swatches!

Honestly, it's like Tom Pecheux has been reading my mind. He's only gone and revamped the entire Estée Lauder blush line and, American spelling aside, the new Pure Colour Color Blush in Electric Pink is my new favourite thing. Bold, bright and oh-so-pretty, it's spring in a palette.

Electric Pink is one of 14 shades in a range of colours that includes everything from brights to more subtle nudes, peaches and pinks. They come in a satin or shimmer finish and promise longlasting colour combinbed with antioxidant 'skin-loving ingredients', including cranberry and goji berry extracts.
Out this month, these are priced at €36.50 and for your money, you get absolutely masses of product: 7 grams of product in a sleek oversized palette. The old blushers came in a dark blue compact - I have Peach Nuance, which is a couple of years old - whereas the new range is all shiny gold and clear perspex, to match the Pure Color eyeshadows that came out a couple of years back.
I'm delighted with the colour I was sent to play with; Electric Pink is definitely one I'd have gone for myself. It's vibrant, silky smooth and very pigmented - I apply it with a duo-fibre 'skunk' brush for a more sheer finish and it instantly brightens my face. And it really does stay put all day.

Ok, so these aren't the cheapest blushers I've ever seen but for a generously sized, high-performing, high-end product with gorgeous packaging, I really think they're worth the price. What do you reckon, will you be visiting them at an Estée Lauder counter near you?
