The plan was for this post just to be about the Estee Lauder products but I grabbed the wrong lipstick when I was taking the photo above so my darling duos post became a trio. These things happen but the show must go on folks.☺
Estee Lauder ‘Vivid Shine- Pure Color’ Long Lasting Nail Lacquer- Insolent Plum($21/.3fl. oz.)
First up we have the Estee Lauder Nail Lacquer in Insolent Plum. I’m wearing two coats plus a salon top coat in the pictures above. This could definitely be a one coater though as the first coat was completely opaque. I love crème polishes and I thought the color on this one was so rich and deep. I can attest to it being long lasting as well. These pictures were taken on day two of my manicure and I was able to get about 6 days before my first major chip. And yes, I do all my own household stunts.
Marc Jacobs Lip Crème- Magenta($30/.12oz)
I have some nail polishes from the Marc Jacobs Beauty line that I was very pleased with so I decided to test out some colors from his new Lip Cremes at my local Sephora. I tested some reds which were great, a brown which was a little too nude for me and ended up leaving with Magenta because clearly I’m having a shades of purple moment. From the Marc Jacobs Beauty website:
Indulge your pout with Marc’s new revolutionary 10-hour lipstick that covers your lips with buttery, creamy vibrant pigment with one pigment-saturated swipe. Experience unprecedented color payoff from concentrated color-boost pigments that are triple-milled and steeped in hydrating ingredients, so your lips experience ultimate long-lasting color and moisture.
I just got Magenta so I’ve only worn it twice so far. I will say that the first day I wore it I had a 10 hour day and I remember looking in the mirror at around 3 in the afternoon after having tea in the morning, an apple, lunch(Starbucks brown rice salad) a second apple and being impressed that my lipstick was still on. This one is definitely long lasting and highly pigmented. I do agree with it being creamy but I didn’t find it especially hydrating. I think if you are prone to dry lips you would definitely need some type of balm before applying this one.
Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick- Insolent Plum($30/.12 oz)
Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Lipstick- Insolent Plum
Last but definitely not least we have the Estee Lauder lipstick in Insolent Plum. I think this is such a beautiful color. The formula is creamy, moisturizing perfection. I’m wearing Insolent Plum with no balm or gloss under or over it in the pictures above. I love it. Don’t my lips look happy? I also appreciate that the nail polish of the same name actually matches the color of the lipstick. I get slightly annoyed when a brand has a lipstick and a nail polish with the same name and instead of being in the same color family they look like total strangers to each other. If I had to compare the Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Lipstick to the Marc Jacobs Lip Crème I would say the Estee Lauder isn’t as long lasting. You will need to reapply the Estee Lauder lipstick after lunch.
So to recap all three products worked well for me but I am totally smitten with the Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Lipstick. You can find more colors here. I have my eye on “Thrilling.”
Have you tried anything from Estee Lauder or Marc Jacobs lately?
