So yesterday I showed you the Extravagant Night nail varnish from Estee Lauder’s 2010 Holiday Collection and today I bring you a selection of the lip products from the same collection. I’ve already mentioned that the theme of the collection is reds, berries and golds and the lip products are all in that vein, beautiful and rich shades and perfect for parties.
First up is the beautiful Pure Colour Lip Palette in Extravagant. In the same format as the eyeshadow palette’s from the Blue Dahlia collection, this lip palette is similarly gorgeous. It contains two lipglosses, two sparkling lipstiacks and a satin red lipstick. You can layer or wear alone, whatever takes your fancy.
This is really glorious, which for £34 you would hope it would be. I’ve had a good play around with it and that red in the centre is really gorgeous, its not too blue or too orange. Its a gorgeous shade.
This is the red alone followed by the red topped with the gold sparkly gloss (please make sure you enlarge the second one):
Also included in this collection are three lipglosses, the beautiful Pure Color Glosses. Electric Ginger, Star Ruby and Extravagant Plum. I don’t mind telling you that I’ve pretty much worn Star Ruby since it popped through my letterbox. I love the formula of these glosses, light, not sticky and with a gorgeous fig scent. Whats not to like? Have a good look at the gloss in the tube (again, I urge you to enlarge the second pic):
This is so pretty, but not one for people who don’t like glitter! Have a look, I love it
Lastly there are two Pure Color Long Lasting Lipsticks in Extravagant Red and Extravagant Berry. I was sent the gorgeous Extravagant Berry which is a) extravagant thanks to the coating of gold glitter and b) very on trend this winter.
Again this lipstick has the fig scent which I personally really like, but it is a strong scent. The formula is fantastic on these, it’s really opaque, and looks and feels really luxurious on. Although the outside of the lipstick is coated in gold glitter I’ve yet to experience any transfer to my lips but that may well come as you get further down but it’s such fine glitter I’d be surprised if it showed up at ll on the lips.
The colour of this one is beautiful but sadly for me, as a boring stay at home mum, its probably not one that will get much use from me, perhaps to my husband’s work Christmas Party. My annual night out
Here it is on (hastily applied in a not very good light I must add before you think I’m the worst ever at lipstick application!):
Final snap is swatches of the whole lot, Star Ruby Gloss, followed by the Extravagant Berry lipstick and teh palette swatched in the same layout as it appears in the pan:
There are obviously items in this collection that I don’t have to show you but the main one on my wishlist is the gorgeous looking Eyeshadow palette which is gold themed. I’ve lusted after it since seeing it in use over at Beauty Blogging Blonde. Simply stunning and on my christmas list!
The Extravagant collection is available from Estee Lauder counters now.
