Two-in-One? Yes please!
By Katie Mellinger, March 15th, 2012
There is simply not enough time in the morning. You gym, shower, blow-dry hair, grab a bagel as you run out the door, barely catch the subway as the doors close, and wedge yourself onto the train bench between two passengers, finally set to begin your makeup application. Your cosmetic tote is overflowing in your already massive purse, but you need options. You may need green liner OR black liner. Maybe black mascara. Or did you want brown? UGH. How can you be expected to answer these questions in the morning before you’ve barely glanced at your coffee?! Enter Estée Lauder to the rescue! Their new Sumptuous Two Tone Eye-Opening Mascara and Double Wear Stay-in-Place Dual-Ended Eye Pencil, both in the new Two Tone Collection, make your morning commute that much easier, each product coming in an array of dual colored options.
The Sumptuous Two Tone Eye-Opening Mascara comes in 3 different color combos: Bold Black/Rich Brown, Bold Black/Rich Blue, and Bold Black/Rich Plum. One side, designed for the top lashes, contains the darker Bold Black and a thicker brush that separates, thickens, and lengthens for enhanced volume and weight. The side with the lighter shade features a smaller more detailed brush to be used on the bottom lashes. By applying the lighter color to the bottom lashes and the darker color to your top lashes, you achieve an eye-opening and eye-brightening effect. But why stop there? Nothing says you only have to rock blue mascara on your bottom lashes. Try applying blue to just your top lashes, or both. Maybe attempt a bi-toned look with purple all over the lash and brushing black on the tips. Mix and match mascara? Two-in-one? Yes please.
If you already love Estée Lauder’s Double Wear Stay-in-Place Eye Pencil, you’ll love the dual-ended version. Available as a limited edition, you may pick from three options: Onyx/Coffee, Onyx/Sapphire, and Onyx/Garnet. Not only will you be cutting down the weight of your colossal handbag, but you’ll have even more options for colors of eyeliner, whether you’re sporting your new summer shorts or your favorite black mini. Bonus points for the extended wear factor.
Estée Lauder’s new Two Tone Collection will be available beginning in April 2012. Most of the collection is limited edition, so stock up on these space saving beauties while you can!
