I am back again with a lipstick from one of my favourite brands – Estee Lauder – Vivid Shine lipstick in Rebel Raspberry. There’s a lot of interest in this lip colour that Kareena Kapoor is sporting in one of her iconic looks, from the movie “Talaash,” for the song “Muskaanein jhooti hai.” The colour is supposed to be so deep, so intense, so unique that loads of people are attempting to recreate the magic by mixing colours, mixing formulas, etc, etc. Here is my attempt at re-creating that colour – so what colours did I mix? None! I present to you Rebel Raspberry from Estee Lauder.
As I have mentioned in my previous review on Poppy Love, the Pure Color Vivid Shine lipsticks provide an amazing pop of colour, are long lasting and have this amazing micro-shimmer in it.
Color so vivid, it’s luminous. Light-emitting prism pearls create multi-luminous effects. For amplified color and unprecedented sparkling shine. Clusters of up to 8 different shaped pearls cast diamond-like reflections. Silver and gold sparkle pearls neutralize lip tone. All shades look great on every skin tone. Lips love it. Feels so good: lightweight, creamy, conditioning. True vision color – Maximized color impact, Magnified vibrancy, clarity and dimension, Amplified brilliance. Light-to-medium, buildable coverage. Wears for hours. Stays color true. Enriched with lip-loving ingredients, including apricot kernel, shea butter and murumuru butter that leave lips soft, smooth and conditioned.
Vivid color, luminous shine. Lip-lighting lipstick.
$26 in US/INR 1735 in India.
The Vivid Shine range has the same packaging as that of the Long Lasting range. Its tamper proof, luxe and practical. It’s a gold case with glass bottom which helps identify the colour – if you have more than one of these. The cap fits in snugly, so there is no chance of it coming loose accidentally. Love the EL logo on the lipstick case – very classy. Refer pics for details. The lipstick comes enclosed in a cardboard box, which has a small cut-out enabling you to identify the colour. The box comes seal wrapped which ensures that no one else has touched or swatched the lipstick before you. Appreciate the care Estee Lauder has taken to ensure the product reaches its customer intact.
My Experience with Estee Lauder Pure Color Vivid Shine Lipstick – Rebel Raspberry:
As per Estee Lauder press releases, the colour is “Dark Pink,” seriously? That’s the best you can do to describe this beautiful colour?Okay, let me try. The colour is a deep intense berry colour with a plummy tone and purple sparkle/glitter. The sparkle gives it luminosity as well as depth. Please note that the sparkle does not feel gritty. The sparkle ensures that the lipstick retains a sheen through its wear, removing the need to apply lip gloss on top.
One swipe is good for 80% color deposit. Multiple swipes will build the intensity and take it up to the colour on Kareena’s lips! In spite of the intensity and richness of the colour, it is easy to apply directly from the tube without the use of a lip brush.
The lipstick is long lasting – about 6 hours plus (with mini snacks in between). The lipstick leaves behind a pinkish stain with lingering glitter unlike Poppy Love, the stain lasts for only about an hour. I would have expected the colour to last longer, since it was darker than Poppy Love; however, that is not the case.
To sum this up for you:
Pros of Estee Lauder Pure Color Vivid Shine Lipstick – Rebel Raspberry:
- Intense vibrant colour – with a constant luminous sheen.
- Unique shade – and extremely sought after!
- Perfect colour for an evening out.
- Excellent pigmentation – a single swipe is enough for good colour coverage; however, multiple swipes (2-3) will build the intensity to the same colour as the tube.
- Easy to apply from the tube.
- The lipstick applies creamy – without any tug or pull.
- Does not settle into the fine lines of the lips.
- Does not hydrate but doesn’t dry out the lips either.
- Despite the dark colour – there was no feathering or bleeding.
- The stain, with shimmer, stays for about an hour or so.
- Luxe and tamper-proof packaging.
- No price caveat again – quality does not get determined by price!
Cons of Estee Lauder Pure Color Vivid Shine Lipstick – Rebel Raspberry:
Yes, again a 5/5 product.
A unique colour which does not need you to mix 2-3 colours or apply gloss and is still long lasting. I love the packaging! I just wish the lipstick had EL lisignia etched on it like most high-end brands do!
So, have you too been lemming for Kareena’s lip colour from Talaash? Do you think this is a good dupe?
