It’s been awhile since I’ve reviewed and swatched on lippies, and boy do I miss that! Estee Lauder’s latest Pure Color Love Lipstick is every swatch addict heaven.. you’ll know why soon~ But first, a little introduction on this massive launch of beautiful shades. Estee Lauder Pure Color Love Lipstick comes in four finishes to cater for all different tastes and needs: Ultra Mattes, Edgy ccremes, Shimmer Pearls and Cooled Chromes.
As the beauty trend is all about matte lips these days, let’s get started on Ultra Mattes that’s also currently holding up the most variety of shades. In fact, there’s a total of 11 shades currently available in Singapore; just check out the rich color intensity and how saturated the swatches are!
From nudes to bright and deeper tone shades, there’s bound to be something for everyone. I went quite crazy picking the nudes and reds because they are just so gorgeous and classic. In fact, I was already getting a swatch-gasm just trying the bold colors out due to how uniquely shaped the lipstick bullets are… show you in a bit~
Next up, we have the Edgy Cremes that are so creamy and moisturizing (which you can already tell from above), they simply glide on my arm seamlessly. 6 shades to choose from, they are classic keepers for everyday wear.
In lieu with the upcoming shimmery lippie trend, Estee Lauder thoughtfully included Shimmer Pearls with 5 beautiful shades of pinks, reds and berries. Micro shimmer for the extra dimension without looking like an oily mess, totally perfect for a girl’s night out!
If you’re into something uniquely daring, these limited edition trio will be ideal for your collection. Cooled Chromes is a dark, shimmery lipstick when you’re feeling gamed for something different.
Of course, we all know that what’s swatched on the arm tend to look slightly different when applied on our lips due to the difference in our lip color and texture, so here’s some lip swatches of what I brought home!
Edgy Cremes – Wild Poppy, Crazy Beautiful and Radical Chic
Shimmer Pearls – Haute & Cold
Ultra Mattes – Blase Buff, Shock & Awe and Bar Red
Cooled Chromes – Nova Noir
If you were to ask me, I do feel that Estee Lauder tend to be one of the most underrated lipsticks in the beauty industry. I’ve always liked the feel and wear of their lipsticks, Estee Lauder Pure Color Love Lipstick did not disappoint of course. The formula includes three power oils, Pomegranate, Mango and Acai to help condition and soften lips, allowing even the matte to glide on my lips easily. You’ll also find the shape of this lipstick bullet unique and may be a little tricky to apply initially – especially on the cupid bow, but I’ve since discovered that the tip is actually amazing for lip lining!
