Estee Lauder Lipsticks!

I have two beautiful Estee Lauder lipsticks which I treated myself to on my 21st Birthday last year and I adore them! They are beautifully packaged, extremely elegant and the colours are natural yet stunning!

This lippie was showcased in my May Favourites post and it is one of my top 5 lipsticks. The colour is the perfect pink nude for me, its stunning, huh! I can’t express how much I adore this product. The formula is incredible, so smooth, it glides on smoothly and like silk and is very moisturizing. It has the most gorgeous natural sheen which makes my lips look soft, plump and juicy. It also smells just delicious. There isn’t much more I can say other than I love it!

I’ll admit that although this is stunning, it is my least favourite out of the two. When I purchased these, I automatically picked up this shade and didn’t try it on, as I was sure it’d suit me, whereas I actually tried Crystal Baby on before I bought it and loved it. If I had tried this on in store I probably wouldn’t have bought it as the colour is abit too nude for me. The colour is very similar to Gosh’s Darling, although the formula is better, its again very moisturizing and soft, smells gorgeous, but I don’t think the colour suits my pale skin. I have never worn this out, although I will definitely, I just need to find a way to make it work for me, maybe with a lip-gloss or something. I do remember the woman on the counter saying that this was one of the most popular lipsticks and I agree that on many women it’d look beautiful, but unfortunately not on me. I don’t mind keeping it just for the packaging though, although that’s really lame to admit, haha!

The lipsticks are £16.50 each which is pricey but worth it for the quality of the product and the packaging. I will definitely buy Crystal Baby again, I think it will be my holy grail lipstick that suits me through all ages.

Would do you girls think? Do you agree that Vanilla Truffle is a tad pale? Have you got any tips which I could use to make it suit me more? Who else loves these lippies?

P.S I bought these products with my own money and all opinions are honest!

  3. I love the idea of nude/ pale lippies but on my pasty skin it just looks wrong. I've lost track of the number i've tried and failed with. Maybe a slightly brighter gloss would bring it too life a bit? x
