Estee Lauder’s beautiful, beautiful Madmen range is quite pricey, so I thought I’d give you a proper look at how the shades swatch up. I don’t even watch Madmen and I’m smitten with the collection, mainly for its packaging.

First up the Estee Lauder Madmen Collection See Thru Blush, £48 HERE. This is my favourite of the limited edition pieces and it translates on the skin to a completely wearable perky pink. You can obviously vary the intensity depending on how ‘flushed’ you want to go, but I’d say anyone other than the very darkest tones, will be able to wear this shade.

This shade is so resonant of the period of time it represents – it’s a shell pink with plenty of shimmer and so pretty with it. The shimmer stops it being old-fashioned and clunky and it costs £20 HERE  (not sure I could be persuaded to part with twenty quid for nail polish, because I think you could dupe this shade quite easily).

And, again, anyone could wear this neutral pink shade. It’s impressive that the shades are obviously representative of the 1960’s but tweaked cleverly to be relevant and wearable in 2013. The lipstick is £26 HERE.
