Estee Lauder Holiday 2010: Extravagant Red

Estee Lauder Extravagant Red Long Lasting Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a limited edition shade from Estee Lauder’s holiday collection (which also features Extravagant Berry). The best part about this lipstick is actually the gold glitter overspray on the outside of the lipstick–it’s just a shame it wears off. The lipstick itself does have a faint gold shimmer to it, but it is quite subtle. It is a rich, opaque orange-based red with subtle gold micro-shimmer, soft shine, and intensely pigmented. It wears for six hours with ease, and it doesn’t leave lips feeling dry. Like other Estee Lauder lip colors, it did have their sweet fig scent.

  • Product: 29/30
  • Value: 8/10
  • Ease of Use: 4/5
  • Packaging: 4/5

FINAL THOUGHTS: I like everything these is about this lipstick — it’s smooth, pigmented, and wears comfortably.  The shade itself is not particularly unique, though, so for those who find themselves buying red lipsticks often, you may have something similar enough to this to skip.

WHERE TO BUY: Nordstrom
