I trust and love the brand Estee Lauder so much that I just randomly pick products from Estee Lauder and it works so well for me [at least more than what I expect out of it]. I have very recently started using lipsticks, I mean I still prefer light colors on my lips which a gloss would give but I can’t just restrict myself to glosses. That is how I started using lipsticks and no wonder I tried lipsticks from Estee Lauder as well. The first lipstick from Estee Lauder was the Pure color Long Lasting Lipsticks and I just fell in love with those lippies. Having tried 2-3 shades in that range I wanted to try their Hydra Lustre range and that is when my sis got this lipstick in Black Cherry. I know – again a gift from my sis 😀
Initially the name Black Cherry freaked me out and I told my sis I might not end up using this lipstick as I do not prefer very dark and bold colors on my lips. Yes, in Chennai you are still looked upon differently [in other words ‘stared at’] if you wear really bright colors on you, especially lips !!! My sister insisted that I don’t stop with the swatch but do try it on my lips. The swatch itself convinced me a bit that I can manage wearing this color but once I tried it on my lips I was sure I am going to take the lipstick for myself. It is such a pretty cherry shade.. well not red but those dark cherry type color. You can just ignore the word ‘Black’ in the name ‘Black Cherry’ as it is not black or so dark at all.
The lipstick is so creamy and moisturising that I am scared whether I might break or smash the lipstick during application. Lips feel moisturized until you have the lipstick on your lips. Gives a super creamy finish that I expect from all my lipsticks. Again Estee Lauder didn’t disappoint me 😀
The cost of these lipsticks are $21 [USD]
Pros of Estee Lauder Signature Hydra Lustre Lipstick

Cons of Estee Lauder Signature Hydra Lustre Lipstick
• The lipstick is so creamy that I am scared whether I’ll break it during application !!
Would I Repurchase – Yes, for sure. It is a must have lipstick in your collection, especially if you are a lipstick lover and you love creamy lipsticks.
I really can’t compare these with the Pure color lipsticks, so please don’t ask me to do that comparison. I love them equally and they are equally good is what I would say. Try both and it is again one’s personal preference some might like the Pure Color ones better and some might like these Hydra Lustre lipsticks better. I like them both 😀 Greedy me 😀
