Estée Lauder Pure Colour Envy Hi-Lustre Lipstick

I'm tentative when it comes to makeup and especially lipstick as I have troublesome lips. Half the time they're dry and the other half of the time, product builds up into an unsightly mess, so I'm always cautious of spending my money on a product that might be tried once and not be worn again, but I'm working on my base problems and as Burt's Bees seems to be doing a super job with that, I thought it was about time I got a bit spendy!

My bank card and I have finally managed to work out our differences and have become friends since starting my new job, so I threw caution to the wind this time and splashed out. I wanted to treat myself, try something new and be a bit fancy, so Estée Lauder and I got acquainted and I have myself a beautiful new toy!

Fierce, punchy and daring are all words I've never used to describe something before but when you find the PERFECT shade of red, things start to change.
Colour tones are something I need to master as I'm a pastey Sue who turns freckly in the summer (don't let the dark hair fool you) so a lot of colours make me look ill, washed out or orange but I have apparently mastered the online shop as this colour in incredible.

For the first time in a long time my lips can take a sigh of relief at being able to wear something more than balm. It has a delightful silky texture that just glides on, leaving my lips moisturised and nourished with so much pigmentation, that I don't need heavy layers to achieve the look I want, meaning, I don't get the horrible build up (yay!!)

Estée Lauder I am forever in your debt and next time, I think I'll skip the online browsing and go to a counter to get the full experience!

Have you had any exciting beauty finds recently?
