Hey, Wassup buttercups?
There was a book fair organised in my city last week and I stocked up so many novels that will be sufficient for this year. You wouldn’t want to believe the prices of the novels for which they were being sold (Rs. 20 each) Yes, no kidding here. I splurged on them like I splurge on my makeup products 😉 the only difference being, we don’t get any makeup product at this price :/
I have a love-hate relationship with glosses. I love glitter and shimmer but not on my lips :/ I’m more of opaque coloured lips lover but having lightweight lip glosses does no harm. Anyway, getting back to today’s review. I’m reviewing a lip gloss from Estee Lauder. I don’t really get any high end brands here in my city except for MAC. This particular product was sent with lots of love from U.S. by my aunt. Let’s see how it fared.
Price:$18.50 for 15 ml.

My experience with Estee Lauder Bare Glow Pure Color High Gloss:
My aunt bought me so many products from EL when she went shopping for herself. The bill amounted so high that the manager decided to give us free sample goodies (yayy) Most of the products that I ordered are already reviewed on IMBB. This gloss gets a very neutral reaction from me .Talking of the packaging, it’s a cute mini tube with a slant tip applicator. Since it is a sample product, it’s very small and can be carried anywhere. It has a golden screw cap.
Bare glow is a nude-coloured gloss which is quite shimmery. The shimmer particles are very minute but the glow it gives is noticeable from far away. It has a high-shine finish. What I love the most is that it’s best for winter wear as it provides softness and hydration to lips. This gloss can be worn over any lipstick, but I like my lipsticks matte and therefore I don’t use it over/under any lip colour. It’s a light weight gloss.
The staying power of this gloss is worth appreciation. When worn alone, the glossy effect stays for some 3-4 hours, after which a reapplication will be needed. What is don’t like is that when it’s about to wear off, it leaves behind a silver shimmery effect. The texture isn’t very thick, but it’s thick enough to not transfer of bleed. It has a weird smell which lingers for long, but since it’s not very overpowering, it doesn’t bother me much. It’s subtle enough to wear in office or on natural makeup days. Girls with pigmented lips will be a little disappointed since it is a sheer gloss.
Pros of Estee Lauder Bare Glow Pure Color High Gloss:
• Moisturises the lips
• Sheer colour
• Hydrating formula
• Doesn’t transfer or bleed
• Stays for long hours
• Nice gloss for no makeup days or office use
Cons of Estee Lauder Bare Glow Pure Color High Gloss:
• Leaves behind a silver shimmery look.
• Too sticky for my liking.
• Not an ideal gloss for pigmented lips.
Would I repurchase Estee Lauder Bare Glow Pure Color High Gloss?
Umm, not really since I don’t like shimmery lips, but I do recommend it to ladies who love sheer, glossy lip glosses.
