  1. I’m probably going to give these a look, particularly the limited edition lipsticks.

  3. Pixiwoo’s most recent video swatched some of these, I believe. The names are terribly familiar. In any case, they are beautiful.

    These look gorgeous, but ever since some years ago I bought an Estee Lauder lipstick than smelled too waxy and changed color on my lips (it turned way brighter minutes after applying into a magenta shade I hated) I have stayed away from Estee Lauder! Anyway, I’m sure formulas have improved a lot, but I’ll wait for your review!

    The texture of Estee Lauder lipsticks is nice, but the scent — I mean stench — is absolutely horrible. Instant migraine.

    Looks like Crystal Baby is finally available in the US again!

    • Andrea

      That is exactly what I was thinking! You took the words out of my mouth!
      <3 can't wait for crystal baby

    Please review at least one of these Christine, I’m interested in your take on the formula. I’m always looking for a non-drying lipstick.

  9. Dianna

    I want my paws on Pure Color Crystal Lipstick – Crystal Baby, Crystal Pink, Rose Petal, and Ripe Papaya. Christine, please review the formula…

  10. Dorna

    VANILLA TRUFFLE IS BAAAAACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. le

    It seems they re-promote some that I already have like: (3 favorite colors) Candy, Tiramisu, rose tea and Pink Parfait, tiger eye (hate this one, shimmering feel like sand on your lips)

  12. Miradan

    Will these have the same EL “fig” smell as the old ones? I literally cannot wear it, makes me gag, and I’m always so sad to see so many pretty colors that I can never ever wear.

  13. I would love to have Crystal Baby

  14. Kris

    Is Crystal Baby the same as Elizabeth Pink? Does anyone know? Thx

  15. Alsy

    Does anyone know what # Blushing is at all?

    Oooo I love the Pure Color Lipstick collection, particularly Bois de Rose. Highly pigmented and not drying to the lips, I love love love this. I also love Rose Tea but my favorite is Bois de Rose. I use it as my lipstick cum blusher – the effect is all natural and I always get ppl asking whats the secret to my rosy cheek. It works like a charm and much better than Benefit’s Benetint or something. Seriously try it – never have breakout using it so far :)
