Just got the newest Pure Color Glossby Estee Lauder. Read on for more pics and swatches!


Estee Lauder Pure Color Gloss

The Pure Color Gloss comes in 34 gorgeous shades of nudes, berries, reds and plums, 6 of which are designed by Tom Pecheux and available exclusively at Nordstrom. There are 3 different kind of finishes. Shine contains color-true pigment polymers to deliver an ultra shiny, glossy finish, Shimmer has finely cut pearls to provide a mirrored shine with fierce shimmer and Sparkle gives you super high-shine fused with high-powered metallic sparkle for the most dramatic look.

I was sent two colors – Star Pink (Shimmer), a cool-toned lilac with tiny gold and Tempting Tearose (Shine), a creamy warm nude color.


Estee Lauder Pure Color Gloss in Star Pink and Tempting Tearose


Star Pink goes on really sheer and shows up pretty much clear with lots of shine and tiny sparkles.

Tempting Tearose, on the other hand, adds a bit more color onto my lips, giving it a your-lips-but-better look.

Both glosses feel very lightweight with no tackiness. They are formulated with Vitamin C, Vitamin E and humectants (substances that promote the retention of moisture) and make my lips really soft. The faint fig scent is also a nice change from your regular over-the-top sweet glosses. Plus they wear pretty well and can last a good hour or two. I will have to check out the rest of the colors next time I hit up Nordstrom!
