Estee Lauder Pure Colour Extravagant Range

I was sent some goodies from the Estee Lauder holiday 2010 collection called Pure Colour Extravagant.  I really love lots of Estee Lauder products, especially their lipsticks, glosses and their nail varnish – which I swatched as a NOTD a few weeks ago here > extravagant night nail varnish swatch


Pure Color Extravagant Five Color Lip Palette


I do think this palette is really gorgeous and all of the colours (apart from the browny red furthest on the left) are really flattering.  The two more golden glosses are really smooth, non sticky and very shimmery.  I have to be honest and say that I am not a lip palette person. I can rarely be bothered with a lipbrush so this isn’t the sort of thing I would have bought myself.  If, however, you ARE that sort of person this is a great holiday palette as there are lots of different textures of product which can be layered and mixed and the palette is very light so perhaps if you are going to travel with it this would be a really handy bonus.

Pure Color Long Lasting Lipstick in Extravagant Berry


I absolutely adore this lipstick.  From the packaging which is gorgeous, to the glitter blasted lipstick (this is just on the outside of the bullet) which makes it look so festive and stunning and lastly the amazingly gorgeous colour.

This colour is absolutely beautiful, it is so creamy and easy to apply and it does last a good couple of hours so much better than most long lasting lipsticks as they are rarely smooth to apply or moisturising.  At RRP £17.00 it is quite expensive but not as bad as my YSL Rouge Volupte’s and not as drying as them either.

I definitely recommend the nail varnishes and pure colour lasting lipsticks from this range, there is another varnish and another lipstick available and I really want to pick up the other lipstick next time I am shopping.  I would personally leave the lip palette as it isn’t as good value in my opinion
