Estee Lauder Violet Rain Pure Color Sequin Finish Lip Gloss

Estee Lauder Violet Rain Pure Color Sequin Finish Lip Gloss ($22.50 for 0.20 fl. oz.*) is a vibrant, nearly neon fuchsia-pink with iridescent fuchsia sparkle. It’s redder and more shimmered compared to Milani Flashy. MAC Gimme That! is redder, lighter, less shimmered. The color is opaque and extremely heavy in sparkle.  You can feel the sparkle a little bit, but it’s not too noticeable or gritty.  Because of the overall brightness and vibrancy of Violet Rain, it should complement most skin tones–it’s going to give you lots of oomph, pop, and contrast whether you’re pale, deep, warm, or cool.

Estee Lauder Dramatic Black Pure Color Intense Kajal Eye Crayon

Estee Lauder Dramatic Black Pure Color Intense Kajal Eye Crayon ($22.00 for 0.08 oz.) is an intense black with brown undertones. It looks pure black in person, but as is often the case with photos, blacks will either lean brown or black, depending on their actual undertone. Urban Decay Perversion is still a little more intense and has better color payoff in a single stroke. It’s also comparable to MAC Black Black, though this has less of a sheen.

Estee Lauder Citron Kiss Pure Color Lipgloss

Estee Lauder Citron Kiss Pure Color Lipgloss ($22.50 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a gold shimmered gloss that has virtually no color, just soft, pale yellow gold shimmer and a glossy shine. MAC Moth to Flame looks similar on, though it’s less golden and more beige. Bobbi Brown Coral Sand is more orange. MAC Gold Dust is less yellow.  Really, any sheer gold-shimmered gloss will do.  I’m surprised I couldn’t think of something dead-on similar.  A gloss like this isn’t useless, it’s just not the type of gloss that most want ten of, because you can’t really see the nuances within it since there is not much to the base color.

Estee Lauder Blackened Cocoa Pure Color Intense Kajal Eyeliner

Estee Lauder Blackened Cocoa Pure Color Intense Kajal Eyeliner ($20.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a deep, dark brown with warm, red undertones and a matte finish. It delivers good color coverage in a single pass, and it doesn’t pull or tug at the lash line during application. The consistency is creamy and soft, so it glides on easily across the lash line and water line. While some brown eyeliners are a softer alternative to black, the depth of this shade makes it nearly as powerful as a soft black eyeliner. CoverGirl Brown is similar, but not quite as intense.

Estee Lauder Blackened Black Pure Color Intense Kajal Eyeliner

Estee Lauder Blackened Black Pure Color Intense Kajal Eyeliner ($20.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a rich black with a mostly matte finish. It has excellent color payoff in a single stroke. I love how creamy this formula is; it glides on easily, evenly, and delivers full color without having to go back and forth. Despite the creamy consistency, it stays put–it doesn’t smudge, budge, or migrate on the lash line during the day. It doesn’t wear quite as well on the lower water line, but it did hang on for five to six hours.
