Estee Lauder is a brand I see all the time but have not had much experience with in recent years. I remember in my younger years using the Estee Lauder products my Mum would get in the Christmas gift set occasionally. I never take much time to look at a counter though when I am out. Sometimes it just has too much of an 'old lady' vibe about it.
My impression has changed recently though. I was out with my Mum in Horsham (a smallish country town) and walked past a chemist that sells Estee Lauder. It had a table of discontinued and discounted stock - I could not resist! I went in and then came out with two new purchases.
I picked up a Pure Color Long Lasting Lipstick from the discontinued table that was 20% off. I had to restrain myself to just one lipstick - there was some gorgeous shades. I also picked up a very pretty eye shadow that wasn't on sale but I just had to have it. So I bought it (as I do).
The Pure Color Lipstick I purchased is a very pretty coral shade called Coral Fantasy. It is a creme finish. I think of the this shade as a true, crisp coral. It is very creamy when applied but still lasts for a good few hours. I also love the elegant packaging - it feels grown up.
I am very pleased I picked this lipstick up, especially since I paid around $36.00 for it.
The other item I just had to buy was a Pure Color Gelee Powder Eyeshadow in Cyber Copper. I am not one to purchase individual shadows very often - I prefer the convenience of a palette but I am so pleased that I purchased this.
This shadow is like a hybrid of a cream and powder shadow. It is super pigmented and smooth. It is so easy to apply and lasts all day. Since purchasing this I have worn it almost everyday I have worn eye makeup. I am planning on purchasing more of these incredible shadows.
I am very happy with my recent experience with Estee Lauder. Both products are fantastic quality and have definitely encouraged me to explore more of the brand especially any products from the Gelee range.
