Estee Lauder Naked Pure Color Sheer Matte Lipstick
Estee Lauder Naked Pure Color Sheer Matte Lipstick

Estee Lauder Naked Pure Color Sheer Matte Lipstick ($25.00 for 0.10 oz.) is light, slightly brightened, pink-coral with a subtle frosted shimmer and matte finish, along with soft, warm undertones. MAC Coral Bliss is darker, less bright, and pinker. Burberry Devon Sunset is darker and more luminous. NARS Bolero is pinker. MAC Betty Bright is brighter and pinker.

Naked was an improvement from the other two I’ve tried (Demure and Rebel). I wouldn’t say it’s something I’d even consider, but it was remarkably less drying compared other shades in the formula. You can even see how it looks more flattering when worn, too, because the consistency of the lipstick is creamier, less stiff and dry. It had rich, opaque color coverage (which is why “Sheer Matte” is a misleading name), and it applied decently without too much tugging or pulling.  Like drier mattes, this absolutely hung on for longer than the average lipstick at good wear through the sixth hour.  It was slightly drying but not horrifically drying, so again, improvement from the others.

Naked was one of the better shades I've tried from the Sheer Matte lipstick range, though it was still a bit drying, it did have great color payoff and long-wear.

  1. It looks rather dry on the lips as well. And I don’t know which is worst: that it feels dry or actually also looks dry.

  2. Strange comment but that colour makes you look really young :) I think it’s the pretty glowy blush too.

    Can you suggest any similar colours in gloss/liquid lipstick/cream?

    Is there anything you could put over this to make it less drying but without ruining the lipstick itself?

  4. Is there a matte lipstick that isn’t drying?

  5. Avatar of Precious Precious

    It’s actually a nice shade, a toned-down, wearable version of MAC’s Betty Bright, but I think it needs a lip balm underneath.

    Looks great on you :)

    Hey Christine! How close is this to MAC Shy Girl?

    Great color! I love coral shades, but this still looks a bit too dry.

    I’d definitely have to wear a lip balm underneath.
