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.

I was actually considering getting this when I was ready to buy a foundation from EsteeLauder.com to get free shipping, but then I rethought it and decided to buy the foundation at an actual counter because I was worried I’d get the wrong shade. I’m so glad I have a swatch now though to see what it actually looks like!

That red really goes well with your skin tone, this is werid to say, but your lips remind me of Kat Grahams lips, the witch from Vampire Diaries.

Aw, I think the swatch looks disappointing compared to the shimmer you can see in the tube! I was expecting even more golden sparkles on the lips.

I like red lips on others, but if I wear it myself…I feel like a clown. LOL I am just not that confident wearing red lips. It looks great on you, though! 😉

OMG!! I just fell in love with the first pic of the lipstick, but OH NO, why din’t they include a little more gold in this lipstick! I’m a digger of gold and recently I have been looking for all basic shades with gold shimmer. I would have bought this one without even wasting a second ..give me more gold … 🙁
