Estee Lauder Mirrored Orchid and Glow Fuchsia Pure Color Vivid Shine Lipstick
It’s official – Fall is around the corner, which just happens to be my favorite time of the year! With Autumn comes all of the beautiful warm colors and the prime time to rock berry/plum and vampy hues. Similar to last year, metallic finishes for the Fall are still very popular.
This Fall, Tom Pecheux, Creative Makeup Director at Estée Lauder created The Metallics Collection that features the cool sheen of metal and the liquid light of lacquer.
“To create the makeup collection, I got inspired by the city, architecture, metal and glass.” explained Pecheux. “I think it’s nice to look pretty, but it’s much better to look amazing.”
You all know I love my lip products, so I’ll be talking about the new lipsticks first. Estee Lauder Pure Color Vivid Shine Lipstick (Chrome Metal Effect) ($26) provides vivid color with a metal sheen. Amplified gold and silver pearl complex creates dimensional luminous effects, diamond-like reflections and intense chromatic color. As the pearls combine they neutralize liptone. All shades look great on every skintone. Available in (6) shades.
I’ll be showing you two of those shades today – Glow Fuchsia, a beautiful shimmery rose and Mirrored Orchid, a lightly shimmered ripened plum. Both shades have a mirrored metallic finish, but they aren’t a frost overload and don’t look outdated.
Despite all of the fine glitter, the lipsticks glide on super smooth. You can slightly feel the shimmer when you rub your lips together, but it’s not at all gritty.
The color is buildable from light to full with a couple of coats. Once worn off, the lipstick leaves behind a pretty shimmery stain.
- Comfortable wearing
- Light to Full Coverage
- Shimmery and Shiny – Great for night wear
- Lightly metallic without being frosty and outdated
- Suitable for all ages
- Could be a bit more creamy/moisturizing – They don’t dry my lips out, but I prefer topping with a clear gloss for a little added moisture.
Price: $26 each, for a limited time at your local Estee Lauder counter or online at Esteelauder.com.
