I think I'm the only person on the planet who has never watched an episode of Mad Men. I've heard so many great things about this show, but honesty, I don't even know what channel A&E is on my Television. Maybe I'll start watching now, because, the Estee Lauder Mad Men collection really has me curious about this series. Not only is the packaging unbelievably gorgeous, but the products are really beautiful too, especially on my warm skin tone. Click below to see the Mad Men collection swatches, how it looks on me, and read weekend updates.
This season I find myself really getting into lipsticks. Normally, I'm a gloss girl, but lately lipsticks have been calling my name. The Estee Lauder Mad Men Cherry lipstick is a cream satin finish red pink. On warmer skin tones, I find red pinks, and orange pinks seem to look the best, and this red pink lipstick is gorgeous and not drying to the lips at all. Also, I find that red pinks make my teeth look a lot whiter. The Estee Lauder Mad Men collection Creme Rouge in Evening Rose
can look a little intimidating in the pan, but once applied, you'll find that it's an easily blendable and buildable formula and it leaves my cheeks with gorgeous medium pink dewy glow. Here I am wearing both the rouge, and lipstick for date night with Mr. Milly.
Here are swatches

The lipstick really lasted a while. After four and a half hours of drinking and eating, it was still going strong. The blush lasted a pretty long time, I'd say about a good 7 hours. All in all, this collection gets an A+ in Milly's book of beauty.
How was your weekend? Mine was great. Mr. Milly and I finally went on a date night. I've been super busy and he's been traveling a lot for work, so we really haven't had a chance to go out the last few weeks. It was great to finally just spend time together. Date nights in a marriage are so important. Remember that. It keeps it sexy. Anyway, we went to brunch at Aquagrill in NYC. The food was absolutely fantastic. Yum
If you're ever in New York, and want fresh and fantastic seafood, head on over to Aquagrill. Then we went to see SafeHouse, the movie with Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds. OMG, what a good film. You should see it! Full of action. (I love a good thriller!)
Then after that, we headed to dinner at MamaJuana (Dominican restaurant). The food was absolutely delicious. I had this fantastic Shrimp dish, and Mr. Milly had the snapper. Highly recommend Mamajana (87th and Amsterdam).
All in all, a good weekend.
