Estee Lauder Pure Color Love Lipstick Swatches

Love it or hate it, millennials are taking over and brands are starting to notice! I’m loving this new millennial-centric rush (especially in the beauty community) because it’s forcing brands to be more innovative and creative. Gone are the days of die hard customers that only use one brand of makeup for the rest of their days. Millennials ain’t having that! We like to switch things up. We embrace change. We may love one foundation one day and then love a completely different one the next. That’s just how millennials roll!

And if you ask me, it’s about time that brands like Estee Lauder has jumped on the wave. For decades, Estee Lauder has always been the go to high end makeup brand for women with mature skin. So they’ve always used older spokesmodels and stuck to creating classic, staple products that are practical–never trendy. For a while, this approach worked because there were still plenty of die hard Estee Lauder fans holding on for dear life. But as newer brands popped up on the scene with flashy, trendy new products for millennials to snatch up in seconds it became clear that Estee Lauder needed to shake things up a bit.

Estee Lauder 130 Bittersweet Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion Review

Estee Lauder 130 Bittersweet Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion

Usually when I think of liquid lipsticks, I think of a slightly (or severely) drying formula that’s intense and lasts all day long. That’s not always the case though. Some liquid lipsticks are much easier on the lips sporting a softer formula that’s nothing like the average liquid-to-matte lipsticks we’ve gotten so used to seeing these days. Similar to L’Oreal and Maybelline, Estee Lauder has taken a more comfortable approach to liquid lipsticks with the new Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potions. And I’m kinda digging it.

Estee Lauder 410 Shameless Violet Pure Color Envy Matte Lipstick Review

Estee Lauder 410 Shameless Violet Pure Color Envy Matte Lipstick

It can be easy to write off a line thanks to one bad apple but sometimes it’s important not to judge so quickly. Last fall, I picked up 2 of the new Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Matte Lipsticks and one of them, Extrovert, turned out to be a little rough. While I loved the color, the formula took a little bit of work to look its best. Which isn’t out of the norm for most vampy mattes but it was a little more than I bargained for at a $30 price tag.

Best of 2015: High End Lipsticks

Best of 2015 High End Lipstick: Chanel 94 Exatique Rouge Allure Lipstick, Urban Decay 1993 Matte Revolution Lipstick, MAC Matte Royal Lipstick, Estee Lauder 430 Extrovert Pure Color Envy Matte Lipstick, Yves Saint Laurent 19 Le Fuchsia Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick, Kat Von D Poe Studded Kiss Lipstick, MAC Stone Lipstick, NARS Fanny Lipstick

Nothing ties together a look like a good lipstick! That’s why I’ve always been so lipstick obsessed because they can really transform a look. Last year, we saw a lot of new lipstick releases–some limited edition and some permanent. Of course, I’ve tried a ton of them over the course of 2015 but there were a handful that I almost had to surgically remove from my makeup bag because I just couldn’t stop wearing them after the testing phase was over.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! I’m still can’t believe Christmas is just a few weeks away but it’s got me in a pretty good mood. That and I’ve been having a ball makeup shopping lately LOL! I try my best to be a good girl all year just so I can go a little crazy and spoil myself for Christmas. Which is sort of what I’ve been doing over Black Friday weekend. ?

In the midst of spoiling myself, I’ve also been making sure to start trying the new things I already have. I did a lot of shopping my stash last month which led me rediscovering and falling in love with some gems I almost forgot I had.

Estee Lauder 430 Extrovert Pure Color Envy Matte Sculpting Lipstick Review

Estee Lauder 430 Extrovert Pure Color Envy Matte Sculpting Lipstick

Ahhh, vampy mattes. I can’t help but love how edgy and sexy they look. But I hate that they don’t always perform so well. The latest vampy addition to my collection is the Estee Lauder 430 Extrovert Pure Color Envy Matte Sculpting Lipstick and despite the price tag it suffers the same vampy matte lip woes as other shades I’ve tried. Le sigh.

A girl can never have too many lipsticks so we’re keeping the fall lipstick inspiration going with some purples. I love to wear purple lips all year round but it’s pretty much my go to once the cold weather hits. It’s such a playful color that comes in so many shades and finishes that’s it’s easy to collect one or two…..or five. Here’s a roundup of my current 5 fave purple lipsticks for fall:

Take a Walk on the Wild Side with Estēe Lauder’s New Mattes!

Estēe Lauder 410 Shameless Violet, 430 Extrovert Pure Color Envy Matte Sculpting Lipstick and 130 Bittersweet Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion

When I think of Estee Lauder, I think of sweet old ladies in a strong spicy, floral perfume with their lips and cheeks covered in rouge ready to pinch your cheeks at any given second. Not bold mattes and liquid lipsticks. Estee Lauder has always given off a more classic, mature vibe better suited for those spunky older gals who like to power-walk laps around the mall before it even opens. Not anymore!

Today, Estee Lauder is shaking things up new formulas and bold shades that your grandma wouldn’t dare touch. And I like it! I respect Estee for sticking to her classic guns for all these years but every now and then it’s time to shake things up a bit.

Manicure Monday!

Happy Monday! I know it’s been like forever since I’ve shared a nail post with you guys. Honestly, I just keep forgetting. I almost forgot this week but I’m right back it! When I returned from Atlanta last week I immediately went and got my claws done so I could play in some polish again.
