Estee Lauder Star Pink Pure Color Gloss

Pure Color Glosses have a sponge-tipped applicator, and they are all fig-scented (as the majority of Estee Lauder’s lip products are), which is a slightly sweetened fruit scent. This gloss is just barely tacky; I hate to say it has any tackiness, but there is a touch there. I get about two to three hours of wear, which is average, and I don’t find these glosses to be drying either.

Le Metier de Beaute Framboise Creme Lip Creme

Le Metier de Beaute Framboise Creme Lip Creme ($36.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a brilliant shade of radiant ruby red with glimmering white, ruby, and pale gold shimmer. I love this Lip Creme not only for its scarlet hue but for the intense pigmentation in just one swipe. This gloss is absolutely pigmented–even pigmented lips would see much truer-to-color results than the norm.

NARS Bougainville Lip Gloss (Holiday 2010)

NARS Bougainville Lip Gloss ($24.00 for 0.28 oz.) is described as a “sensual pomegranate … with dramatic, diva-esque color.” The description also goes on to say “deep in pigment yet sheer on the lips,” which is an interesting statement. NARS’ Lip Gloss is non-sticky and scent- and taste-free, though they have been known to smell a bit like plastic or wax. I did not notice any scent whatsoever with my Bougainville, though.
