Add some art to your beauty routine with the limited edition Estée Lauder x MET 150 Collection. In celebration of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York’s 150th Anniversary, Estee Lauder has brought art to life across this collection.
The striking design and gleaming, giftable box are inspired by the shapes and colors of a beloved Cubist painting from The METcollection: The Village by Fernand Léger. The Estée Lauder x The Met 150 Anniversary Set includes a Trio of Pure Color Envy Full-Size Lipsticks, a Collectible Powder Compact, and a Pure Color Envy Eyeshadow Palette with 8 eyeshadows to inspire your inner artist.
Intricately designed, exquisitely crafted, the collectible compact is filled and refillable with Perfecting Pressed Powder. This compact comes filled with silky, lightweight Perfecting Pressed Powder in shade Translucent (Refillable too: fits the Small size refill).
You can set your inner artist free with 3 full-size Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipsticks. The trio includes shades 450 Insolent Plum, 520 Carnal and 561 Intense Nude—a trio of colors inspired by the original painting’s palette, with a modern flair you can make all your own.
Beauty is Art, and Art is Beauty
Estée Lauder is donating 100% of the purchase price of each item within the Estée Lauder x MET Collection to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, from August 2020 – March 2021, or while supplies last.
In 2020, The Metropolitan Museum of Art is celebrating the 150th anniversary of its founding. The plan includes a dynamic range of exhibitions, programs, and public events. Highlights of the year included the exhibition Making The Met, 1870–2020; the opening of the newly renovated and reimagined galleries devoted to British decorative arts and design; the display of new gifts throughout the Museum; a three-day-long celebration in June; and a story-collecting initiative. All these initiatives were halted by the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Other events included a birthday party on April 13, a story-telling initiative and a series of public events, reported artandobject.com. COVID-19 closures put a stop to most of those plans, but with The Met reopening August 29 after months shuttered, the museum is excited to redebut exhibitions that barely had a chance to shine before the museum closed.”
Max Hollein, Director of The Met, said, “The Museum’s anniversary is an occasion to celebrate this extraordinary institution, and appreciate the vibrancy and astounding depth and scope of its collection, scholarship, and programs. This moment is also a time to think deeply about our responsibilities as stewards of this exceptional resource, our commitment to cultivating the understanding and appreciation of art, and the ways in which we can illuminate the connections within cultural histories. The Met strives to be a seminal encyclopedic museum—of the world, for the world, and in the world—and we are grateful to everyone who supports us in achieving that goal.
