Estee Lauder Christmas Kiss is a very cool-toned, medium red with a pearl finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $32.00 and contains 0.12 oz.
Estee Lauder Christmas Kiss Hi-Lustre Pure Color Envy Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bright, medium pinky-red with fine ruby red and pink pearl. It had nearly opaque color coverage that went on evenly and smoothly.
The Hi-Lustre formula is supposed to have medium coverage, shine, and shimmer with a hydrating formula. I'm a fan of the Pure Color lipstick range, and the Hi-Lustre formula "downside" is that it tends to be closer to semi-opaque to opaque coverage rather than a true medium coverage formula. The texture was lightweight, comfortable to wear with a touch of tackiness, that sat well on the lips and lasted for six and a half hours. The color stained slightly, but it was faint, and it felt hydrating while worn.
