I was at the store about a month ago and I couldn’t stop myself from checking out Estée Lauder’s new line of Pure Color High Intensity Lip Lacquers. I bought a lipstick from their brand new line last fall, and got endless compliments on it (Violet Electra), so I was looking for something equally stunning from their line this year.
What I found was a gorgeous gloss by the name of Pure Color High Intensity Lip Lacquer in Wet Plum. This is a shade from their new line of highly pigmented lip glosses and lipsticks. Some characteristics of these glosses, according to Estée Lauder:
The liquid light of lacquer. The full-impact of lipstick.
Richly pigmented lip lacquer creates luscious, wet, brilliant colour.
Provides the full coverage of lipstick with the ultra shine of lacquer.
Creamy and moisture-rich with a lip-caring blend of Vitamins C, E and conditioners.
Lips feel hydrated and comfortable.
Glides on smoothly and evenly with an instant intensity of colour and shine.
6-hour colour brilliance.
In my experience this was a very thick, sticky lacquer that is applied and doesn’t budge. The applicator is a paddle with a center curve that creates a reservoir for the lipgloss to collect in so you can apply the perfect amount each time. The color you get with these is exactly as it appears in the tube. Vibrant, rich, and wet looking.
