Estee Lauder Fleur de Lys

Still upset that the MAC Redhead MSF sold out before you could get to the counter? Well, let me introduce you to a much better substitute, Estee Lauder Fleur de Lys Shimmer Powder! It's the new limited edition star product from the spring collection that just launched at the Isetan Scotts counter. (I'm not sure if it's already available at other EL counters in Singapore but probably it is.)



I tried out MAC Redhead MSF out of curiosity but it looked frosty on my skin. So I wandered over the Estee Lauder where I was surprised to discover the Fleur de Lys Shimmer Powder on display. I had given up hope that it would arrive at the counters here as sometimes we don't get all the collections from the US. But I guess the makeup gods were smiling on me today :-) When swirled together and applied, it gave a gorgeous velvety rosy flush that was flattering and glowy without any of the frostiness of the MSF.



The Fleur de Lys Shimmer Powder comes in a navy compact that's almost the same size as a MSF, but the Fleur de Lys has 13g of product compared to the MSF's 9g. It retails for $55, compared to the $51 for a MSF. As Isetan is now having a 10% rebate for every $50 spent, I also received a S$5 voucher with my purchase :-)

I checked this out today and I don't think I could buy this. It's far too pretty to use, and I think if I got it I wouldn't touch it for fear of ruining the design.

Me too! It's too pretty to be use. I rather buy something more practical & of good texture.
