I have some Estée Lauder lipsticks for you in this post, including lip swatches. Guess you would have already figured out, I am a lipstick addict – I love lipsticks especially if they are pigmented and creamy. Lip colour changes a look instantly and it’s the easiest way to bring a look from day to night.
This post features 2 Estée Lauder Pure Color Long-Lasting Lipsticks, each contains 3.8g of product, made in Belgium.
You will find 6 categories of lip products under Estée Lauder’s Pure Color lip range – Singapore receives only 3 and they are Pure Color Sensuous Rouge, Pure Color Crystal Long-Lasting Lipstick and Pure Color Long-Lasting Lipstick.
This range of lipsticks offer True Vision™ technology which takes ordinary color and makes it extraordinary. Comes in 2 finishes – satin cream and lustrous shimmer. They also offer medium to full, buildable coverage and promises long-lasting wear, fade resistant.
Bois de Rose* is a mid-tone, slightly dusty rose. I received this lipstick as a door gift during a recent event and I love it. This shade instantly made my lips look fuller and plumper. This shade is also very wearable – for day and night. I believe this shade will look flattering on many skin tones.
Urban Auburn is a deep brown-red I bought from their Summer collection in KL. Sadly, this collection never made their way to Singapore. On my lips, this shade translate more brown than red. It looks almost vamp-ish but I love the toned down version after blotting.

These Estée Lauder Pure Color Long-Lasting Lipsticks, in fact, all their lipsticks I have tried bears a fruity scent which I am not the biggest fan of – the smell lingers around for quite a while after application, not a huge problem but I would prefer them to be less prominent.
Both lip colours have a cream finish with a lovely soft sheen. They are smooth, buttery and extremely creamy – very well pigmented as well. Enriched with lip-loving ingredients, including apricot kernel, shea butter and murumuru butter, these lipsticks kept my lips feeling soft and well hydrated throughout the day.
I am liking the finish a lot – the formula seems to create a veil over my lips making fine lines look less apparent. I also like that the packaging features a transparent colour coded casing – so helpful and straightforward when trying to spot any particular colour.
By using the blotting and re-applying method, both colours can last me through a meal. I enjoy the luscious texture, it’s always a pleasure to apply and wear.
I would recommend anyone who seeks moisture-rich and colour-rich lipsticks to check them out when you pass by an Estée Lauder counter. They are definitely worth a look or two, their range of shades are rather impressive too – from nudes to reds.
Lipstick makes a woman sensual, powerful and kissable.
