Today I’m going back in time with a 20’s inspired flapper look, and it was actually my boyfriend who came up with the idea! A few weeks ago I received two brand new make-up products from Estée Lauder, but didn’t really know what to do with them. Or at least with one of them, because in addition to the new Estée Lauder Sumptuous Infinite Daring Length + Volume Mascara I also received the new Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Lipstick in Red Ego, a dark red berry shade. The problem is that I almost never wear dark red lipstick and that I always go for pinks and corals, so when my boyfriend saw the slightly lost look on my face, he said: ‘Why don’t you do a 20’s look with that lipstick? Didn’t they wear colors like that back then?’ Isn’t my man a genius?! Using a flapper editorial as inspiration I immediately got to work. Thanks boyfriend!

Estée Lauder Sumptuous Infinite Daring Length + Volume Mascara in Black
The name of the new Estée Lauder Sumptuous Infinite Daring Length + Volume Mascara describes exactly what this mascara claims to do: add lots of length and volume. This is the first Estée Lauder mascara with a flexible plastic brush, and this helps the mascara to nicely separate and lengthen the lashes one by one without clumping. The special polymers and ultra black fibers in the formula give you an intense dark look with visibly longer, fuller lashes.
Retail price: 39 CHF
Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Lipstick in Red Ego
The new Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Lipstick is a hydrating, long-wearing – an amazing 8 hours on me! – and intensely pigmented lipstick that gives perfect coverage in just one sweep and has a lovely satin finish. Red Ego is a dark red berry shade and is one of the 20 available colors.
Retail price: 44 CHF
Alright, let’s check out the look! Are you ready to go back to the roaring twenties?
In addition to the Estée Lauder Sumptuous Infinite Daring Length + Volume Mascara and the Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Lipstick I also used the following products:
– Bourjois 1 2 3 Perfect Foundation
– NARS Exhibit A blush
– Smashbox Limitless Waterproof Eyeliner in Onyx
– Smashbox Fade To Black Fade In eyeshadow palette
I still have to get used to seeing myself with such dark red lips… it just looks so strange to me! But I can definitely feel the 20’s vibe when I look at the end result, so I’m pretty pleased with how my look turned out.
What are your thoughts on the new Estée Lauder Sumptuous Infinite Daring Length + Volume Mascara and Pure Color Envy Lipstick? Do you like dark lips and the typical 20’s flapper style?
