It doesn't get any more limited edition than this, Estée Lauder's Pure Color Night is a small collection created by Tom Pecheux, Creative Makeup Director for the cosmetics company.
Just how exclusive is this?
Well, right now, it's available exclusively in Paris at Bon Marché Rive Gauche, Galeries Lafayette Haussmann and Printemps Haussmann. Limited quantities are also available in New York at Bergdorf Goodman (June 2010) and in London at Selfridges Oxford Street.
So...yeah...it's THAT limited.
In the words of the man himself...
I wanted to create the iconic French makeup look; the black smokey eye, dewy skin and kissable lip. As a makeup artist, I am known for making women look beautiful, sensual and sexy. When given the challenge to create a collection exclusively for Paris, I thought it would be perfect to create a nighttime look, because this is when every French woman wants to look her most beautiful. I wanted to translate the seductiveness and femininity of French women into makeup.

You really can't disagree with that.
I adore how there's only three products to choose from too...
Pure Color Ombre Effect EyeShadow in Naughty Black ($20) creates a smokey eye with smoldering impact. Featuring a textured trio of matte, shimmer and sparkle, these dramatic black/ brown shades can be used alone or together.
Pure Color Luminous Powder ($40) is an incredibly refined and lightweight powder with a luxurious creamy texture. The Highlight shade adds a sensual glow to skin making it look young, healthy and dewy.
Pure Color Lip Gelée in Kiss Me ($20) saturates lips with a nude rose tint, giving the mouth a just-bitten wet look. Water-like high shine polymers amplify the glass like finish, ensuring a coveted seductive pout.
