Estée Lauder Pure Color High Intensity Lip Lacquer - Amber Halo

I've mentioned Estée Lauder's Pure Color High Intensity Lip Lacquer in the shade Amber Halo* ($26 CDN) in my Favourite High End Lip Products for Fall 2013 post, and today I'll share my full thoughts on the product! This new product from Estée Lauder is incredibly pigmented and long-wearing, but it's also wears comfortably on the lips. The shade Amber Halo is perfect for Fall/Winter, and a nice change from the berry shades that I've been wearing non-stop!




"NEW Pure Color High Intensity Lip Lacquer drenches lips in an array of seductively rich lacquered hues, from sultry nudes to daring wines. Combining the creamy coverage of a lipstick and the high-shine of a gloss, this opulently pigmented lacquer creates a lusciously brilliant and glass-like finish. Estée Lauder’s True Vision™ Technology provides the ultimate color payoff, while multi-functional polymers seal in moisture and form a color stay barrier to keep brilliant color and impeccable shine looking fresh, supple and vibrant for a long-lasting 6 hour wear. A new moisture-infused formula also replenishes lips for a rich, cushioned feel that radiates from within. For application, an exclusive paddle, with a bell curve design, dips in the center creating a reservoir effect to release the perfect amount of lacquer that glides onto lips with precision."


The flattened doe foot applicator for this product makes application really easy, and applies just the right amount of product. Amber Halo is a beautiful peachy nude, and it isn't a shade that I would normally gravitate towards. However, I really like how this looks! It pairs perfectly with a smoky eye and a peach blush. I only needed to use one coat to get an opaque look, which is pretty rare for a nude lipgloss! This formula is unscented, and it feels really nice and creamy on the lips. I don't find the formula to be sticky, and yet it still does last on my lips for about 5 hours. The glossy finish wears off after about 2 hours, and the remaining colour stays strong for 5. These last fairly well throughout light eating and drinking, but I tend to always reapply lip products after a meal anyways. 


Have you tried any of Estée Lauder's Pure Color High Intensity Lip Lacquer? The shade Amber Halo is limited edition as a part of The Metallics Collection for Fall 2013. I'm really wanting to get my hands on the shade Wet Plum - it looks beautiful! :)

  2. Oh wow that's an amazing color! I find most lip glosses are quite sheer but this one seems pretty pigmented and in a lovely color at that!
