Estee Lauder Pure Color Lipsticks – Bar Red & Up Beet

I’m not sure about you, but during summer months, I hardly even look at lipsticks. I’m all about the balms and glosses, then bam. The moment pumpkin spice lattes descent on Starbucks, I start rooting around for my more dramatic lipsticks.

So, it’s never felt more perfect to give Estee Lauder’s new Pure Color Love Lipsticks a go! I was very kindly sent two of the most stunning colours – Bar Red and Up Beet. They’re a bit more dramatic than I would normally choose, but for autumn days when it’s cold but perfectly sunny, these feel ideal.

There are 29 shades to choose from in the Pure Color line – from neutral nudes to punchy shades, Estee Lauder have you covered. In addition to the colour choice, the lipsticks also have a seriously cool shape. A chiselled bullet means that you can apply the lipsticks straight from the tube without having to faff around with lip brushes.

Bar Red is possibly the world’s most perfect red lipstick. Creamy and opaque in a single coat, this is a pinky red colour with a subtle blue undertone. It looks beautiful paired with glowy skin and nude eyes. It’s super comfortable to wear, and lasts for about three hours before needing to touch up.

Up Beet might just take the crown for my most dramatic lipstick shade ever. A deep aubergine purple, the formula is shot through with midnight blue micro glitter. It’s a smooth, incredibly creamy formula, and applies like a dream. This is a real night-out shade, and the blue shimmer makes teeth look super white!

Estee Lauder Pure Color Love Lipsticks are priced at £19 each and are available here (UK) and here (US)
