Day 15 of the 30 lipsticks in 30 days project and we have something by Estee Lauder one of my long time favourite lipstick brands. Today we feature something new from Estee Lauder – the Pure Color Gloss Stick lipstick.
Estee Lauder Pure Color Gloss Stick Lipstick – Sunlit Coral
This is a newly launched line of lipsticks in Estee Lauder. I purchased this on a whim recently to make a GWP tier – yeah silly I know but hey! It was a good GWP! 😉
The texture of the lipstick is rather tacky as in sticky. It goes on slightly sheer because its a gloss lipstick to cater for those who do not like lipsticks because of how pigmented they are. Well, this takes care of that problem. Its at once sheer yet pigmented enough to show up on your lips. There is the signature scent which does not bug me.
On the back of my hand, Sunlit Coral was a sheer coral. But on my lips, Sunlit Coral took on a lovely coral pink tone. The colour in the picture (swiped 2 times) is quite similar to how it looks on my lips. I reckon if your lips are more nude then it might show up more coral but I love the colour as it is!
Shimmer is barely perceptible and it does look glossy on – not as glossy as a liquid gloss but certainly glossier than normal lipsticks. A tube retails at RM70 and you can see some other colours and some earlier thoughts here. I’m starting to think about checking out more colours!
