The Estée Lauder Pure Color Desire Lipstick is a one-swipe, full-coverage lipstick containing 25% pure pigment to give a long-lasting color impact while having a creamy-rich formula, providing the lips with an instant hydration. A variety of shades is available in two irresistible finishes, Creme and Chrome. I’m going to swatch and review two shades of these lipsticks with the different finishes in today’s post.
The Estée Lauder Pure Color Desire Lipstick comes in a structured, metallic gold casing with red details and a magnetic seal, containing 3,1 grams of product in total. The packaging has a nice weight, looks and feels very luxurious.
Here are swatches of the shades 111 Unspeakable and 207 Warning. The first shade has a Chrome finish, which is described as a Creamy Pearl Shine. The second shade has a Creme finish, which is described as a Creamy Satin.
Both shades are fully opaque in one swipe and swatch evenly. They both have a subtle, fruity scent.
111 Unspeakable is a Peachy Nude shade with a Chrome finish. Up close, I can see blue and gold micro-shimmers throughout the lipstick but it doesn’t really translate from a normal distance. The shimmers make the lipstick feel gritty. It’s not overly disturbing but it is present, especially during application. Overall, the lipstick feels hydrating and comfortable.
207 Warning is a Raspberry shade with a Creme finish. It is a beautiful bright and bold shade that applies evenly and feels nicely hydrating and slippery.
The Estée Lauder Pure Color Desire Lipsticks are really nice. They are very pigmented, feel comfortable and have a juicy finish to make your lips look plump. This is a lipstick that might bleed into fine lines so a lip liner is recommended if you have trouble with that. I do think that the Chrome finish in the shade that I have, is not very special. I would rather have the lipstick to be less gritty like the Creme finish since the finish looks so similar anyways.
I think this is a gorgeous, luxurious lipstick to have. Looking at the price, these lipsticks are definitely more for someone who loves to purchase high-end products and appreciates a luxurious looking packaging with a good product formula.
The Estée Lauder Pure Color Desire Lipsticks are available for €45,89 Euro at Douglas.nl and Douglas Stores.
