Estee Lauder The Metallics

Estee Lauder Pure Color High Intensity Lip Lacquer for fall 2013 is here!

These super shiny, super glossy, super pigmented lip shades come in twelve new shades with four of them being limited edition.

They are full coverage like a lipstick but have the shine and moisture of a lip gloss. When I say they’re pigmented, I mean it. They feel like thick lip paint, but not in a bad way. They have a very slight coconut scent or maybe it’s vanilla. It’s barely there. Or maybe my sniffer is being crazy.

Overall: I really like these and here’s why. They are nice and thick without feeling too sticky or gloopy. They really give you amazing coverage with one swipe of the soft paddle sponge wand, and they’re nice and shiny. My favorite ones shown here are Peach Glass, Chrome Kimono, Melting Sun and Hot Cherry.

Availability: Nordstrom, Estee Lauder.

Pricing: $25.00.

Do you like any of these enough to check out in person? Which are your favs?
