Estee Lauder’s Pure Color Extravagant Holiday 2010 collection includes two beautiful rich red lipsticks covered with gold shimmer!
This is my VERY FIRST EVER experience with Estee Lauder lipsticks, and I really like what I tried.
I am starting to realize that these higher end, super classy brands which I always used to associate with “women of a certain age”, don’t have an age requirement. 🙂
These lipsticks were extremely creamy and moist, and applied very smoothly. They are also infused with Vitamin E.
One thing I always try and note right away is if they have that lipstick smell. You know the one I’m talkin’ about: smells like 1982. They do have a very faint lipstick type scent, but nothing like say L’Oreal (which I still remember form like 20 years ago). Big bonus for that!
Extravagant Red, Extravagant Berry
Extravagant Red is a medium red/orange with super fine red shimmer. While the shimmer looks gold on the actual lipstick, it doesn’t really translate onto the lip very much.
This is a very wearable red for me. Not crazy bright or crazy shimmery. It’s not too orange either, which for my skin tone is a good thing.
Extravagant Berry is a deep and rich berry red with very slight shimmer. The shimmer didn’t show up as much with this one as the Red one.
I also really like this color on me. It’s on the cool side and again extremely wearable and pretty for the holidays.
I am really pleased with both of these lipsticks and colors. I think the formula and feel is really great, but I can’t comment on wear just yet. And another good thing, I didn’t feel like an old lady wearing them, haha!
What do you think about these two reds?
