I somehow didn’t know anything about this new Mad Men-inspired cosmetics collection until I happened to pass an Estée Lauder counter in Nordstrom last weekend.
It’s a small collection, just three items: a blush called Light Show, a lipstick called Pinkadelic, and a nail polish called Pink Paisley, all presented in late-1960s-style packaging reproduced from the Lauder archives.
I don’t need another rosey pink lipstick, or another pale pink polish, or another blush—especially not at this price point, which seems somewhat high for the brand. All the same, I had a moment of weakness there at the Lauder counter.
I warded off temptation, but this collection did remind me how much I’m looking forward to Mad Men‘s sixth season. Countdown to April 7th!

It’s really eye-catching!
The packaging is beautiful! Can’t wait to see it in person now!
It’s really nicely done! I prefer it to most of Lauder’s current packaging, actually. And it would look perfect on a dressing table! :)
I liked the makeup in their previous Mad Men collection (more of the early 60s vibe) a little better, I think. But, I really do like the overall packaging and affect.
Bottom line, though, I’m not in the market for any new makeup until I use some of what I have. :-/
Oh, Susan, I’m in the exact same boat. I managed to walk away…!
