A lippie with my name written on it (literally!) - Estee Lauder Pure Color Lipstick in Wildly PinkMonday, April 27, 2015
I am back with another Estee Lauder lippie post – I do love this brand when it comes to lippies because their lipsticks are so nice and juicy! If you missed my posts in the past, you can read about Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Shine Lipstick in Blossom Bright and Estée Lauder Pure Color Crystal Baby Lipstick in Crystal Blush by clicking on their links, you will see what I mean about them being/looking juicy!
Last November, I posted on my blog about Estee's promo about having their lippies personalized (you can find the post here: ESTEE LAUDER GETS PERSONAL) but I didn't get my lippie that time. So when they finally sent me my very own personalized lippie with a shade that I totally am in love with instantly, it deserves a blog post!
I am not sure if Estee Lauder still offers the personalizing service, but I know for sure that this gorgeous shade is available all year round. It truly is a shade that I am so in love with!
More after the break!
For me, Estee Lauder has always seemed like a brand more into skin care and some blah grandma-kinda makeup but with beautiful packaging. It was only fairly recent that they revamped their whole look to appeal more to the younger crowd and I feel that it worked too!
I am totally hooked on Estee's products, and not just because I am getting older. Ha!

The lipstick itself has a luxe gold casing with a glass bottom through which you can see the color of the lipstick that you have chosen. The lipstick case closes smoothly and the alignment is such that it is not likely to come loose in the bag and end up with such a mess! I specially love the EL logo on the lipstick case too!
Happy Skin InstaBeauty Blur Cream, topped with Covergirl TruBlend Minerals Mineral Pressed Powder, Pixy Blush On Blush in Passion Roses on my cheeks, and SNOE What’s Up Brow Brow Lash Powder in Ochre, Maybelline HyperCurl Volum' Express Waterproof Mascara and THAT'S IT!
So, to sum up:
- Beautiful colour – it's easily wearable, very flattering whatever skin tone and color, and instantly brightens up the face.
- It has excellent pigmentation! Just a single swipe gives maximum full-on color!
- Would suit most skin tones, even morenas!
- Easy to apply from the tube.
- Comes in a sealed tamper-proof packaging.
- Excellent luxurious and practical case.
- Does not feather which is one of its best traits.
- Despite its semi-matte finish – does not accentuate the fine lines of my lips or does it highlight dry flaky lips.
- Did not dry out my lips. It's actually very moisturizing.
Yes, the price is on the steep side, pricing at PhP 1,400 - but think about it, most lipsticks are priced at 1,000-1,200 and those are not even the luxury brands. So PhP 1,400 is actually very affordable now; plus, the quality, quantity, and packaging makes up for the price.
MY OVERALL RATING: ★★★★★
Retail Price: Pure Color Lipstick in Wildly Pink - PhP 1,400
Purchased For: Gift from Estée Lauder. (Thank you!)

Will I recommend it? Yes. Absolutely.
