Lips, Previews/Launches, Swatches

Greedy lip gloss lover strikes again…

After a hectic day I came to a Delivery Notice’s from the postman. I begrudgingly drove around to the sorting office, they must be sick of seeing my mug at the hatch every day. I collected the packages, not expecting anything exciting.


One of the packages contained a little Estee Lauder make-up bag which housed 6 of the Pure Gloss collection. Woo Hoo!

A picture of the box I received..

I have bought quite a few Estee Lauder skin care products over the years but I haven’t dabbled with their make-up. So for me this is also an introduction to their cosmetics.

From left to right:

  • Electric Ginger (Shimmer) From the nude – brown family. Mirrored shine with shimmer.
  • Praline Paradise (Shimmer) From the coral-red family. Mirrored shine with shimmer.
  • Tempting Tea Rose (Shine) From the nude – brown family. Glossy finish
  • Passion Fruit (Shimmer) From the coral – red family. Mirrored shine with shimmer.
  • Simply Pink (Shine) From the pink- berry family. Glossy finish
  • Mod Poppy (Shimmer) From the mauve – plum family. Mirrored shine with shimmer.

My first impressions are that they shades are wearable, the packaging is nice but I wonder if they are better quality than cheaper brands like Bourjois and Revlon.

I will post a full review next week.

What are your thoughts on Estee Lauder cosmetics?

    lol meant revlon colourstay in the above not colour fix :-)

    agree with innerbell. love love love estee lauder double wear. I would have normally worn studio fix or colourfix but have switched to this lately. Fresco and ivory beige are abso gorgeous matches for my skin tone, day and night. Have also had a recent flirtation with dior flawless longlasting foundation. its gorgeous. Am buying it when my next double wear wears out!!!

    omg they are gorgeous, did they all come as a set ? where can I buy them ?

  • innerbelle

    i absolutely love estee lauders double wear foundation – it is like the most reliable foundation in the world – though too heavy for everyday wear – its perfect for when you really need it.

  • beccy

    they look gorgeous!
    you can never have too many lipglosses :)

    The Passion Fruit shade is so beautiful! I may have to invest if they are good quality so I can’t wait for your review to find out!:)
    How lovely to have been sent them!

  • Kelly

    Ooooo these are nice. Like your every lipgloss need in one package! Can’t wait to see your full review :)

    I only have a couple of bits from Lauder but I really like them. I got them from my local CCO so I’m not sure I’d pay full price but they’re definitely great quality :)

    I havent tried their lipglosses but one thing I love about their cosmetics is the double wear foundation, i find it hard to get a foundation to stay on but this is amazing :)

  • Elle

    I don’t own much by Estee Lauder- it makes me think of granny makeup, or at least makeup my mum would wear (sorry mum!). There are two things my them in particular that I do really like though. The first is a blush called Desert and the other is a lipstick called Venetian Rose, both are of high quality and beautiful colours.
