Estee Lauder - Pure Color Lipgloss

Saturday, June 29, 2013


After being a fan of a number of Estee Lauder products such as Idealist pore minumizer  skin refinisher and the double wear foundation for many years I decided to try one of their lip glosses, hoping for the same high quality.

I went for the colour, shocking pink, i didn't have time to try it before i bought it but the colour looked so lovely in the tube I just went for it. 


Unfortunately I was really disappointed. The applicator is just a standard wand and the gloss itself was really.... gloopy, probably not the best word to use but hopefully you get what i mean! When I put it on it felt really sticky and thick.

The colour however was quite nice especially over a lipstick I have in a similar shade but it is so uncomfortable to wear with your lips forever sticking together that I would rather just use a different gloss.



What’s worse is each time i open it the gloss has leaked all over the top of the tube so I have to give it a good wipe down before i use it, probably wasting more gloss than I have actually used!
At £17 I think this gloss is over priced, there are lower end brands that offer much better quality at much cheaper prices.

Anyone else noticed this problem in other ‘high end’ products not living up to expectations?

  4. Ah I hate it when the high-end products are not even worth it! Just a waste of money :( I got a NARS lip gloss a long time ago....and I'd 100% rather use my NYX Mega Shine Lip Glosses instead!

  6. I've heard that Lauder glosses were extremely sticky... definitely not my cup of tea! Nice color though.
