Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy' Sculpting Lipstick

 Irresistible swatch:

      $27 at Nordstrom
     Can I just say: WOW!
     This lipstick is GORGEOUS!
 A Pink/Plum opaque, with full color coverage.
 The formula is comfortable to wear, moisturizing, and lasted for a long time. About 5h for me.
 It has a vanilla/candy-ish scent :-) It really does smell divine!
 The packaging  is heavy, luxurious with magnetic closure.
    I personally LOVE IT! This color is perfect for me. I have fair skin. The finish of this lipstick is shiny even though there is no shimmer or any sparkles in it. It is so, so creamy. When I first put it on It felt like a super thick textured balm.

     Do you have one? What do you think?

 I Love these and the super cute packaging. They are definitely a lip balm and not to be confused with the lip butters. There's very little pigmentation in them. I think they are great for every day wear.
I got them at WalMart. They were two for $5 :)

     Do you have one? What do you think?

Estee Lauder Pinkadelic, Rich Rich Lipstick

     This lipstick was part of a limited collection from Estee Lauder. 

  It is a smaller lipstick than then the regular size ones but with a higher price tag $30 for 0.13 ounces of product ...ouch :-)
     Color is a beautiful rosy pink with shimmer in it. That gave it a nice shiny finish. I like it. Lasting time was good.
     It is just as creamy as all the other Estee Lauder lipsticks and went on creamy with a medium coverage. The gold packaging is nice and heavy. It also came in a beautiful vinage gift box. 
   The only con with this is the price. It is quite high for such a small lipstick.
    It is discontinued but I did see some of them in Ebay. 

     Did you get one? What do you think?

Estee Lauder Pure Color Long Lasting Lipstick

 From the top: Pink Parfait, Hot Kiss, Pinkberry
  Pink Parfait
 Hot Kiss
      $26 online and $23.40 at Nordsrom

     I got these lipsticks as  gift with purchase, that is why they are in the navy packaging. They normally have that  gorgeous packaging just like the color Crystals.
     Pink Parfait: is a pink with silver shimmer.  It is one of my favorite lipstick colors from Estee Lauder. If I apply it lightly it gives my lips the most beautiful glow.
     Hot Kiss: is a brown/mauvy with shimmer.
     Pinkberry: just as it sounds :-) It really is like the perfect description for the color of this lipstick. No shimmer in this one, just a nice cream. It is my lips but better kind of shade. Perfect for every day.
     These are pretty pigmented. They go full coverage and last pretty good too.Super moisturizing and feels wonderful.

     Do you have one? What do you think?

NYX Butter Lipstick in Gumdrop and Hunk

 Gumdrop and Hunk Swatches

$5.99 at Ulta
     No shimmer, just creamy but shiny and very opaque. Definitely full coverage and super pigmented.
I love Hunk! It looks really dark in the tube but it is not so dark on the lips. It comes out like a cool berry on my lips and it really stains. I got this one through my Ipsy subscription. I'm so glad I did because I wouldn't of picked it up on my own, because it looks so dark.
     Gumdrop is bubble gum :-) It is such a cute color. I am applying this one lightly usually, and it comes out nice.
     I don't detect any scent on these. 
     I like how the packaging is in the color of the bullet.
     I do have to mention that these are not so easy to use. You need to have your lips moisturized prior. They don't look so great if you have chapped or dry lips. 

Do you have one? What do you think?

Estee Lauder Pure Color Crystal Lipstick - 391- Elizabeth Pink


     First things first: I think that the Estee Lauder Lipsticks are seriously underrated. This has been one of my first purchases of a high end lipstick and I am still loving it.
     The color below is a peachy pink, it is a cream and does not have shimmer or any glitter in it. They do have other colors that are frosty/shimmery Like Tiramisu. They are a bit pricey ($26) but just look at that packaging. It is stunning! The cap is made of metal. It is quite heavy.
     It is a light to medium coverage. It feels wonderful on my lips and stays moisturized long after I remove it. I find that the moisture and finish of these lipsticks makes my lips look youthful. 

Swatch of Elizabeth Pink

If you have one, what do you think?
