Hot pink pout: Estee Lauder Orchid Dream Gloss Stick

I don’t know why, but the texture of this really surprised me – in a really positive way. Because it’s a sample it didn’t have the full name on the product, just the shade name ‘orchid dream’, so I didn’t realise it was a gloss and assumed it was just a lipstick. But on slicking it on to my lips it felt absolutely divine! So glossy and lightweight, I love it. It almost felt like I was just wearing balm, not at all sticky but looks super glossy. It’s fab – especially for people like me who aren’t really lippie wearers.

I also adore the colour – I think hot pink is one of those colours that looks so fresh on all skin tones and can really brighten the face.

I plan to spend much of 2011 wearing brighter lips.

    Lovely! It reminds me of the YSL Gloss Volupte.. I’d love to try it because me too, I’m more on the gloss side than on the lipstick one 😉
