My local Dillards department store is currently offering a gift with any Estee Lauder purchase of $35 or more. I had my eye on a couple of items, so I decided to take advantage of this wonderful gift with purchase! Please see my review on the the goodies I received :)
I chose the Pure Color Lipstick in "Beige", (Shimmer). Estee Lauder describes this shade as a "mauvey-nude" color. It's different than other beige lipsticks that I own. Also, the "shimmer" is very subtle; it is not shimmery in the sense of "frosty" or "glittery". This is a beautiful shade that is very wearable and is a good every day lip color.
I also chose the Pure Color Lip Gloss in "Electric Ginger", (you can read my review in separate blog).
The Estee Lauder Pure Color Lipsticks come in two finishes; creme and shimmer, although I have had a difficult time trying to find some shades in the shimmer finish, so I'm not sure if Estee Lauder is discontinuing the shimmer finish. I actually like them very much.
I found this lipstick to be very moisturizing and long-wearing. I have read a lot of complaints about the strong fig-like scent these lipsticks have; however, it wasn't a bother for me and I noticed after a few minutes, you hardly notice the scent at all. Personally, I prefer lipsticks to be "fragrance-free"; however, a nice, subtle scent does not bother me.
