Estee Lauder Pure Colour Long Lasting Lipstick: Pink Ambition & Crystal Baby

Here are two of the new Pure Colour Long Lasting Lipstick, in the shades Pink Ambition and Crystal Baby. These were an absolute nightmare to photograph! I have such predictable taste in lipstick that the two shades I picked out to try out looked almost identical!

Both very pretty and wearable – Pink Ambition is the brighter, more pink shade of the two and Crystal Baby is more nude/neutral. From the colours at the bottom of the tubes you would think they were totally different shades – so if shopping for these, don’t pay attention to the colour of the packaging – even if it is really pretty!

Texture wise these are both really impressive – really creamy and moisturising yet still long lasting. A very hard combination to find as most longer lasting shades are quite drying in my experience.

My personal favourite is Pink Ambition, as it’s bright but not scary and can be slicked on without needing a mirror/lip liner/general hassle and faffing around. Crystal Baby is as easy to apply but the slightly more brown toned shade isn’t as flattering on my skin tone as the more pink Pink Ambition.

Have you tried any of this range? If so -what colours do you love??

    i bought crystal pink once and had to return it because the scent was a bit strong for me, but i can’t stop thinking about how beautiful it was.

    Crystal baby is one of my all time favourite lipsticks i love it. The smell of these are gorgeous too, i think its fig or something. The other colour looks pretty as well xx

    Do you think that these are the solution to Chanel Rouge Coco, which some people find too drying? They look lovely!
