Estee Lauder Pure Color lipstick in Melon


Estee Lauder Pure Color lipstick* in Melon – £19.50
available online

I recently attended the Estee Lauder Christmas event which was the perfect excuse to start feeling festive whilst getting a sneak peek into the brand’s new Christmas releases. Along with the new ranges of Metal Mania and Red Hautes nail lacquers comes a plethora of gorgeous gift sets from skincare to makeup, which I have already earmarked for possible Christmas presents this year! I received this beautiful Pure Color lipstick from the event, and even though the colour doesn’t exactly scream AW makeup, I couldn’t wait to try it out. I can’t decide whether ‘Melon’ is more of a darkened coral or a muted orange, but either way it is fabulous. The colour and finish reminds me a little of MAC Costa Chic with its subtle golden shimmer and beautiful, warming quality which instantly makes you feel very summery indeed. The consistency is very similar to the other Estee Lauder lipsticks i’ve tried – rich and creamy and lovely to apply. Melon Pure Color lipstick leaves you with a slightly glossy sheen to the lips and the golden flecks works wonderfully with bronzed cheeks and a simple eye look. I will definitely be embracing my coral lips this Christmas!

Have you purchased anything from Estee Lauder’s Christmas range?

    I'd say it's a muted coral 🙂 This would probably make a great summer lipstick too but at the moment I'm into plum, berry and deep wine colours for the lips xx
