This is my third lipstick shade from Estee Lauder’s “Pure Color Love” range. I have earlier reviewed “Raw Sugar” and “Rebel Glam” here and here respectively. In this post, I would be reviewing “Shock and Awe.” Read on for more details:
There are no rules in love. Color. Create. Customize. Fun, daring lip color with good-for-you ingredients that help smooth lips and renew moisture. In four fashion-forward finishes:
• Cremes, Chromes and Shimmers have a deliciously balmy texture.
• Mattes are bold, vibrant, rich and long-lasting, feel weightless. Keep that “just applied” look for hours. Mix, remix, create your look. There’s so many ways to love.
My Experience with Estee Lauder Pure Color Love Lipstick Shock and Awe:
“Pure Color Love” lipstick by Estee Lauder comes housed in a transparent case with Estee Lauder engraved on the top. The shade name is printed on the cap itself. The cap has a colour at the top that matches the lipstick itself , this makes it very easy to find out the shade from my makeup stash.
I have never really gravitated towards any Estee Lauder lipstick, but I really wanted to try this range. The shade “Shock and Awe” is a beautiful strawberry pink red shade with cool undertones which will look flattering on all skin tones.
Here are four finishes to choose from and I picked up all matte shades. The matte formula of this lipstick is between MAC’s retro matte and matte formula. It offers straight matte finish but still feels very comfortable on the lips.
It feels comfortable throughout the day. It also feels very lightweight on the lips. It doesn’t dry out my lips or settle into the fine lines of my lips. It’s not transferproof and will definitely fade away if you eat or drink. It has a very mild vanilla scent which wont bother anyone with sensitive nose. I get 6 hours of wear time from “Shock and Awe” and it also leaves a pretty stain behind.
