 Estée Lauder’s Pure Color High Gloss ($18.50) promises to deliver a hydrating gloss with an ultra-dimensional sheer color finish. Available in 8 shades ranging from nudes to plums, there is a color for every skin tone. I had the pleasure of sampling both Flash Dance, which is in the berries family and Vixen Plum (pictured above and what I am wearing below), which is more of a plum shade.

The gloss applied easily and due to my tattooed lips, I used the applicator top (where the gloss comes out of) to outline my lips as well as fill them in. I am a huge lipgloss fan! My lips are tattooed with a natural lip color, so I have to be mindful when applying any other color besides nudes. My favorite lipgloss of all time being Chanel‘s Glossimer in Constellation for its subtle shimmers that no other lipgloss I own has come close to matching. Although it is one of my favorites, the Pure Color High Glosses rein supreme in their long-wearing ability and richly pigmented color payoff.

My lips also appeared fuller to me and later I read that these glosses do add “cushion” to your lips as they are enriched with skin-conditioning ingredients such as vitamin E, vitamin C and antioxidants. Hours later, my lips still felt extremely hydrated and still kept their glossy shine.

Their exclusive True Vision Technology is intended to wrap the pigments in a crystal-like coating to optically enhance the lips with prismatic color and shine; my lips did glisten and appear fuller after application. I believe that the multi-dimensional way this gloss was formulated gives the wearer a lip full of depth, dimension and color — giving it a 3D effect. Not to mention high-shine that lasts for hours as well.

The packaging is clear so that you can see which shade you’d like from the moment you see the gloss. I liked the high-gloss shine and wearability — a little goes a long way and I always view this as a practical quality in a lipgloss. I love wearing glosses and I did not find these to be sticky, tacky or too sheer; I certainly liked that my lips appeared fuller as well. Now, I  am eager to try the colors Bare Glow and Crystal Clear from their collection of nude shades over my inked lips for a daytime look.

Pure Color High Gloss will be available beginning May 2012 at Estée Lauder counters worldwide and at www.esteelauder.com.

  1. Love it, high in color and shine and makes your lips look fuller and healthier! Tom Peachux did a fantastic job!

  2. One has to choose the correct lip-gloss depending on the colour of one’s lips.For a more natural look, wear lip gloss without lipstick.

  3. The gloss is very pigmented. I like reading your reviews.Thanks
