This comes from the entire makeup set of Estee Lauder my Sister in law got from the United States for my wedding. Well, red is a must for every Indian wedding and I already had a set of reds(Ruby woo being my favourite like many of you) but this was different and I have been happily using it for quite some time now.I did not open it for months and now that winters are here, I have been looking for more shades in red and wine and that’s when I laid my hands on this lovely one.I had packed off most of my wedding gifts waiting for the right time to come came across this while looking for those. Estee Lauder Nectarine Shimmer(Pure Color in Shade 26) is a vibrant and long staying color which looks quite sheer is a single swipe but can be turned into an intense color with heavier coating , hence looks great for both day and night wear. It is a must for people who love creamy lipsticks with shimmer. The packaging is quite sturdy and comes with nice shimmer dots on the cover which gives a very sophisticated look to it,well it makes sure you know what to expect inside it;)
Magnificent color, magnified brilliance. Pure Color Long Lasting Lipstick gives you color that looks and feels so incredible, it leaves your lips wanting more. Exclusive True Vision™ technology provides maximum color impact, dimension and wear. The lipstick is also enriched with lip-loving ingredients like apricot kernel, shea butter and murumuru butter that leave lips soft and creamy smooth. It’s available in a spectrum of shades, from sublime to vivid.
Available for 25 USD on Estee Lauder website but again, I found some very cheap deals on other online shopping forums.
My experience with Estee Lauder Nectarine Shimmer Pure Color Lipstick :
The color, pigmentation and that unique combination of red, orange and wine is hard to find. It is very wearable and light, hence a sure pick my next list too. It does not leave a stain and has to be reapplied again and again for as long as you want. Anyway, I don’t mind that as long as it gives you that awesome color on the lips. The color reminds of a ripe nectarine doesn’t it? I really consider this as a good substitute to the matte reds that I have considering this doesn’t dry up the lips yet manages to give that red look which is perfect for winters.As the wedding season has begun, I am definitely going to make some very good use of it in the next 3 months.
Pros of Estee Lauder Nectarine Shimmer Pure Color Lipstick:
- Nice texture and glides on very smoothly on the lips.
- Ensures even and smooth application in a couple of swipes.
- Moisturises the lips.
- Nice shade with a mix of red, light brown and wine.
- Brightens the face.
- Would suit all skin tones and very flattering on Indian tones in particular.
- Lasts really long but does not survive meals.
- It has tiny sparkles to it which gives a great shine to the lips.
- Medium to full intensity with proper buildup.
- Does not feather.
Cons of Estee Lauder Nectarine Shimmer Pure Color Lipstick:
- Price is definitely on the steep side although it is comparitively a little cheaper in the US.
- It accentuates the fine lines on the lips despite not being a matte finish lipstick.
- Fragrance is not all that great, a chemical smell that lingers for a long time.
4/5( 1 negative mark because I’m a matte fan)
Will I repurchase Estee Lauder Nectarine Shimmer Pure Color Lipstick?
Yes I will. I feel this shade is not dupe-able.
