Hello IMBB beauties…..
Today I am going to review Estee Lauder High Gloss #03 Honey. I am not a gloss person at all. I have barely 2-3 glosses in my whole stash and this is one of them. My mom’s recent trip abroad got me this lip gloss. She is a no make-up person herself, so she is hesitant to pick up stuff for me and sissy. But am glad she picked this up. Not only it is in my favorite lip-color zone it has all the qualities of a good lip gloss. Read on to know more.
Estee Lauder High Gloss #03 comes in a normal tube packaging. The cap is gold in color and is a screw cap. There is a gold band at the top with Estee Lauder printed on the transparent body. The shade number is mentioned at the back of the tube. The tube is a long slender one which gives a very classy look to the gloss.
Estee Lauder High Gloss #03 Honey comes in gel finish and glides smoothly over the lips. There are golden shimmers which are not at all gritty. The most important thing is it is not at all sticky.
Being a sheer gloss it transfers a wee bit of beige pigment to the lips. I will not say that it is a pigmented gloss, it is one which works best when worn over some matte lipstick. In the swatch below I have lined my lips with a nude liner and filled in with the gloss.
Estee Lauder High Gloss #03 Honey stays for about an hour with food and drinks. The staying power can be increased by filling in the lips with a nude lip-liner. I do not expect the gloss to stay longer than this because long staying glosses tend to be very sticky and that is really gross for me.
My experience with Estee Lauder High Gloss #03 Honey:
As already mentioned my mum got this for me and hence I had no choice regarding the color. But I believe if I was present right there I would have picked up this shade only. Not only this is my kind of shade but also the packaging is really classy. The naming is perfect. It is a pure honey shade with gold shimmers which will give an instant pop to the bare lips or on top of a matte lipstick. There is a mild fruity smell to the gloss which might be enjoyed by some. Owing to my super sensitive nose I do not like my make up to smell. But the smell is not too overpowering at the same time. I generally put on gloss for special occasions so I do not mind the golden shimmers.
Pros of Estee Lauder High Gloss #03 Honey:
• Pretty shade
• Classy packaging
• Good amount of product
Cons of Estee Lauder High Gloss #03 Honey:
Will I repurchase/recommend Estee Lauder High Gloss #03 Honey?
Repurchase: Probably no, I am not a gloss person; this was a gift.
Recommend: Yes, if you are a gloss person and want an nude beige shimmery gloss, go for it!
Take care beauties….Muah!
