Estee Lauder Plumberry Lipstick

The Sultry Season: Estee Lauder Plumberry Lipstick

Estee Lauder ‘Pure Color’ Long Lasting Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a plum-tinged red with subtle fuchsia shimmer. It has a medium glossy glint and rich, opaque color. The coverage is excellent, and it feels lightweight despite its pigmentation. It’s also more moisturizing than your average lipstick, which makes it comfortable to wear. I get about five hours of wear with this shade in particular, because it is more pigmented. Estee Lauder’s lipsticks are scented with a lightly sweetened fig but are taste-free to me.

Is this the right red for you? Would you wear it?
