Here’s a summary of my recent reviews on the newly-released Estee Lauder Pure Color Illuminating Shine Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.06 oz.). I bought and reviewed 12 shades, which are the ones available at most retailers, though there are some additional shades available directly through the brand–I’m not anticipating purchasing them at the moment (have plenty of other lip products to test for now).
The new formula is supposed to have “sheer to medium, buildable” coverage with “glistening shine.” They seem promising, but the amount they contain is quite small; traditional twist-up lipsticks tend to be more 0.10 to 0.14 oz., and while slim-style lipsticks tend to be less, they are usually 0.08 to 0.09 oz.
