Hey, do you remember that cool gum from the 80's, Chewel?
One bite and you get the flavor burst. It was like two gums in one.
This is how I feel when I see lipstick like this new one from Estee Lauder, the new Pure Color - Sensuous Rouge Collection.
See the soft center:
According to the Estee Lauder site, the outside is the creamy color while center is a "lip-loving elixir". This lipstick contains moisturizing fruit extracts like: red raspberry seed oil, passionfruit, murumuru and shea butters. Is that the what lip-loving elixir is? You have 12 shades to choose from and I went with Rose Exposed because I lack a solid rose shade that I can wear 8 hrs at the office, on date night and even at the playground with my daughter - if I was in the mood to do so.
It is a lovely warm red-pink with a very light shimmer - a great shade to wear year round. The scent is also different. The EL lipsticks and glosses usually have a fig scent, this particular collection of lipsticks have a warm vanilla scent. If anything, it reminds me of the Tahitian Vanilla extract I bake with.
It does go on with plenty of slip and when it dries it remains comfortable on the lips. It lasted for a good four hours at the playground. I didn't really drink a whole lot during the time so that may helped with the duration of the pigment. I do like the stain it leaves on my lips. It doesn't settle into the fine lines of my lips. I will note that I did layer this on top of my Kiehl's Lip Balm #1. This hasn't left my lips raw and peeling the next day **knock on wood**
Final Assessment: out of 12 shades, I'm pretty sure I can find at least one more to add to my collection.
