I’m sure by now you realize that shopping is a big part of my life! I love that it’s a hobby I can do year round, rain or shine. And I’m always scouting for a good deal on what I’m looking for. I’ve also got my eye on a few things that come out seasonally that I always spring for. One purchase I make every fall is a new berry lipstick from Estée Lauder. It’s tradition for me, and I have my favorite berry of the year that they’ve released for the past three years!
The tradition started when my brand new baby was born and I was all alone with her in Washington where we had moved. I felt so frumpy and sad and in hindsight I’m sure I had post partum depression. But regardless, I ventured out on my own and the wonderful saleswoman from Estée Lauder waved me over and sat me down and applied the most gorgeous berry hue to my lips. I wore it all season and every time I did, I got lots of compliments. The following year, I bought another lovely berry shade from the line, and this year I went back to try out the Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion in True Liar.
I am so obsessed with this formula and I’d love to run back and buy a few more tubes of it. Here is the product description, that describes this lipstick better than I ever could!
A fluid lip color with the potent effect of a lipstick. What it does: The innovative Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion is a liquid lipstick hybrid that leaves lips plumped with continuous moisture. Saturated with high-intensity color, without sticky shine, lips appear sculpted and sexy. The creamy, moisture-rich formula glides on in one effortless sweep of bold liquid colorgoing on wet but revealing rich color that lasts for up to eight hours. The oil elixir-infused formula is enriched with avocado, jojoba, and sunflower oils, leaving a luxuriously comfortable, satin-matte finish. The dual-sided applicator lets you shape and color with precise definition. One side features a rounded tip that follows the curves of your lips, while the other side has a well that stores extra color to build depth, dimension, and definition with every stroke.
The doe foot applicator has a little space in the center where the product can pool to get the maximum amount on application. Everything about this product is so chic! The tube is perfectly sculpted into a square with rounded edges with the trademark colors of navy and gold trimming. I can wear this for hours and hours with no fading. True Liar is a deep mauve-plum that is so pretty and so fall.
Notice in the photo below how my lipstick looks slightly wet and like it’s gleaming! This is the gorgeous effect I get from this. It applies kind of slick but not at all sticky. It stays slightly slick on the lips but I didn’t notice it shifting outside of my lip lines. Because of the deeply intense color this is, I found myself looking in the mirror a lot to make sure it hadn’t migrated, but it hadn’t! This was such an easy color to wear. I actually had to remove it after several hours of wear with a cleansing oil as I was washing my face. It was going to stay around forever!
If you are out to make a statement with your lipstick this season, pick up True Liar! Estée Lauder lipstick is such a worthy pick me up if you are in the market for one. I find that their products are truly luxurious and well worth the splurge!
