There was this Korean wave of pink lipsticks a while back, and it made me decided to get one as well. Initially I was deciding between YSL and Estee Lauder but my heart went to the latter one because of its smooth texture and I thought it would make me unique. And so that was how I got my hands on their 02 Maui Kiss pink lipstick.
Overall I’m rather satisfied with my purchase but there were some minor flaws.
First, it is the smell of the lipstick. Honestly, I didn’t know they have this signature fig scent until I read Audrey’s review (thank you!), and all along I thought it was some chemical smell which I totally dislike.
Next, it isn’t suitable for dry lips. I have very dry lips and it is hard to apply the lipstick perfectly because of the shade and their texture. The color always ended up looking uneven and lip balm doesn’t help because it doesn’t blend with the lipstick, making the shine looking oily instead. And every time I removed it, my lips became drier. But it could be because of other reasons of course.
Look into the Gelee Range
Estee Lauder is a brand synonymous with their signature fig scent, which I really dislike. Each to his own though! I have some friends who really like the sweet fig scent. I am generally not attracted by Estee Lauder because I have always see it as an 'old lady' brand but in recent years, they have stepped up their game to a whole new level.
The Gelee range of products are really nice. Eyeshadows, blushers, bronzers and highlighters are all part of the Gelee range. Upon swatching, the powder products are finely-milled and so buttery! Colors are superbly pigmented as well. High quality makeup! Packaging is hefty and hardy, with the brand logo printed on the case. You get what you pay for. Just choose the right range. I have to say that their recent releases really hit the spot. Bought a teal eyeliner 2 months ago and the color is really intense and unique. I didn't really like the pure color lipsticks though. Got 2 as freebies and I find them too thick and shimmery for my liking. Can't get over the nauseating fig smell too.
My mum's favorite.
My mum has been using Estee Lauder's Pure White Linen perfume for quite a while.. I've come to associate it with her sort of "signature" perfume, actually.
It's not overpowering, and reminds me of purity and all things white, fresh and clean. Because it's quite expensive, my mum saves it for really important occasions, though (I definitely don't smell her wearing it all around the house). The bottle represents what the fragrance is about quite clearly too.
I've always wanted to try something from their skincare brand, but never had the chance to because of it's prices. Maybe in the future..
