Estee Lauder Spring 2011: Wild Violet Lipstick

Estee Lauder Wild Violet Pure Color Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a berried dark pink with fuchsia and violet micro-shimmer strewn through the near-opaque color. It has a soft shine in the finish along. It is a new and limited edition shade from Estee Lauder’s spring collection.

my thoughts on the formula: 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.

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

final thoughts: Estee Lauder’s Pure Color Lipsticks have a creamy, moisturizing formula with richer, near-opaque shades.  Wild Violet is a beautiful way to wear pink and fuchsia without going for a full-on neon shade.

Love this one Christine. Sounds like you’re getting about the same wear I get because I almost always wear EL, I can get 4-8 because I always line too which hold it tight. So pretty, plus you already sold it to half the world yesterday! EL stock shoots up overnight. πŸ™‚

I have this lipstick as well as the other colors from their spring collection and I’m in love! Such great pigmentation & long wear. The spring eyeshadow set is also GORGEOUS! go lauder !! πŸ™‚

U look beautifull in this picture! Young, fresh and dewy. Suits you very well with less black on your eyes, you do not need that (though I know it photographs well/better). Lovely shot, really.

Wow, this color is gorgeous, thanks for sharing it! I’m going to have to check it out, I love bold lip colors. I’ve never bought from Estee Lauder, but their last few seasons have piqued my interest; it seems like they’re cultivating a much younger, fashion-forward identity.

So pretty on you! And I love the new layout – I am continually amazed by all the hard work you put into this site, and it is so appreciated!!

Oh my Good!! Is such a beautiful color!!! I need it!!
Christine, could I suggest that you make a review of the EstΓ©e Lauder wild coral lipstick (same collection)? It’s seem like a beautiful color, but I will fell more secure to buy after your review. Please πŸ™‚

I’ve long thought that Estee Lauder lipsticks are underrated so thanks for the review!

It really is a gorgeous shade and ladies, there are many, many more lovely colours. The Pure Color, Pure Color Crystal & Signature lipstick formulas are really lovely (and much better than MAC in my personal opinion)…

As gorgeous as that color is, I was really hoping it would be as dark on the lips as it is in the tube. I’m still planning on buying it, though (I LOVE Estee Lauder lipstick).

Hehe, Christine, I loved this lipstick on you the first time it showed up in the pic for a review of something else & half the page was compliments on your lipstick. Among the highest level of compliments I’ve seen for a lipstick & you have such warm coloring. I’ve always found I prefer warm toned lips on cool skin and cool lips on warm so this post made me smile. Def would love to see you do more cool lipsticks. πŸ™‚

I just picked up this colour today and it’s really amazing on my lips (more pigmented than your’s although I’m paler) Wild Violet looks a lot more berry and less pink and bright.

Absolutely beautiful colour. Just perfect for spring. Now all that’s missing is the actual spring πŸ˜‰
