If there’s one thing about Estee Lauder that gets me, its their lipsticks. I don’t know why but there’s something comfortingly familiar about the fig smell and the ornate packaging that gets me every time.
The newest product is the Pure Color Gloss Stick – a glossy lipstick. I’m happy to note that it is not all shimmer and shine but has a good amount of pigment to it. Pigment is important to me in lip products. It also feels light going on the skin.
I only swatched 4 out of the 12 colors available because I was passing by an Estee Lauder counter and in a bit of a hurry.
Clockwise from top left: Pop Pink, Orange Poppy, Sunlit Coral and Berry Pink. My faves were Sunlit Coral and Berry Pink – both my kind of shades! Orange Poppy just scared me with all that orange but I think it’d look amazing on someone with a darker or warmer skintone. Check out the rest of the colors on the Estee Lauder UK website.
The colour applies very smoothly with nice shimmer as you can see. The color also is pretty much what you see in the tube which is nice. I like how the Pure Color collection is packaged – I can easily see the lip color I want just by looking at the case.
Point of interest: In Malaysia we tend to get the Europe and Asia releases of products from the various big brands. So, some items or lines in the USA may not be the same as what we get here or may be called by different names. So, when in doubt, check the UK/Europe websites. This is especially true of European brands or some major USA brands like Clinique and Estee Lauder etc :)
You know what? I may need these gloss sticks! :P Retail price is RM75 RM70 a lipstick – ain’t too bad for department store if you ask me. Most other brands are selling lippies at RM90 these days! Now when’s the next in-store sale promo again? ;)
Its a holi-holiday!
Its May 1 today which means its Labour Day and a public holiday! Nice that it falls on Friday so we get 3 whole days off! What have you got planned?
I’m staying in because I know the roads and malls are going to be crazy full of people. I need to dig into my ironing pile and make it magically diminish or disappear and I need to scrub my house from top to bottom. Chores I’ve been putting off for a while now… whatever happened to labour day being a day of rest?! ;)
