I am not a lipgloss person. But then on a day when I want to really go out there and dress up I would dab some over my lipstick just to add some shine and seal the color for the next couple of hours.
The prime reason I run away from gloss is because of their sticky nature. I hate having that feeling where you can’t talk properly cuz your gloss is glueing your lips together. Am I the only one this happens to? -_-
Anyways this travel exclusive Pure Color Gloss Collection from Estee Lauder was one of the many products I’ve picked up while travelling. And I am really very happy I did bring this one home unlike most of the other products I have in the past (*sigh*). This is really a must have in my opinion.
This collection comes in 5 very versatile shades and has a gloss shade fit for any look you need (most of them at least). From a very pale shade of pink to a loud purple, it has it all. I feel the colors are very pigmented given their sheer and translucent nature. I would recommend that it looks best worn over a matte lipstick. It really pops up your lips. However, even when worn by itself does look amazing but not too pigmented (look at the swatches below).
My skin is a medium with warm undertones and I really need to be selective when it comes to finding the right shade that matches my skin tone. However I was quite surprised at how all the 5 shades in this gloss collection were shades that I use. Because we all know that its very rare times when we end up using all the shades in a palette or collection. These glosses also have the right amount of shine and glitter in it since I really don’t prefer those overly glittery glosses. The cherry on top is that it isn’t sticky like most glosses and thus no disruption in my speech occurs. 😉
1. Versatile shades
2. Beautiful sheer shades
3. Right amount of shine and glitter
4. Really brings out your lips
5. Not sticky
1. Expensive but in my case I feel it was worth it.
2. Some may find it not pigmented enough when used by itself.
3. Not available in stores since it’s a travel exclusive. Perhaps you might want to look out for this gem when your travelling next time.
