Estee Lauder Summer 2009 Vivid Garden Collection

Estée Lauder‘s new summer collection, Vivid Garden, is so girly and pretty!

Drawing inspiration from the lively bright shades of a fully blooming summer garden and the delectable treats of an afternoon tea, Estée Lauder introduces Vivid Garden – a fairytale-like limited edition color collection for summer 2009. With pops of floral bright colors for a look of youthful vibrancy, graphic elements and shades of teal, lime, and aquamarine complement vivid pinks and playful purples for eyes, while cheeks blush with a luminous sheer glow and lips tantalize with saturated pigments in creamy textures and sheer glazes.
