Estee Lauder Mad Men Collection 2013

Think pink! We loved Estée Lauder’s foray into Fifties collabs last year with their Mad Men collection, so when we found this year’s (already on counters) leaning away from retro and more towards wearable, we couldn’t wait to get our hands on it. The collection eschews typical mid-century mod looks for a softer collection of pinks for lips, tips and cheeks — all housed in retro-mod cloisonné-inspired packaging.

The lipstick, Pinkadellic, is the one mod moment in the collection (though the Rich, Rich Lipstick formula is moisturizing like the best of today’s lippies), nodding to the club scene in the ’60s whereas the blush, a perfectly pink hue called Light Show is as modern as can be. We spied similar colors gracing cheeks at shows such as Jil Sander and Narcisco Rodriguez, two designers that are anything but vintage.  But our favorite piece has to be the polish, a subtly shimmering carnation pink called Pink Paisley, which happens to be the perfect color to embody Betty’s icy glares and Megan’s not-so-sweet naivety  It also happens to be riding high on the macaron-inspired polish trends that’s taking over tips on and off the runway, so whether you watch or not, grab this limited-edition color before it’s gone.

The Estée Lauder Mad Men Collection is available now. Mad Men‘s sixth season premieres April 7.
