Red Lips Day 8: Estee Lauder Pure Color Lipstick in Extravagant Berry

Posted by Lipglossiping On January - 18 - 2011

A rich, berry red with a small amount of shimmer… I’ve worn this beautiful shade plenty of times since I received it at a press event last year but never as ‘full on’ as this.

It’s pretty vampy!

I usually apply with my fingers and blot it down to a stain but in the image above, I’ve applied with a lip brush before blotting on a piece of tissue.

I would feel far too conspicuous to wear this so bold in the daytime but I reckon I could give it a go on an evening out?

Longevity was really good on this one… 4 hours of near perfect wear despite drinking and munching on a packet of crisps.  Plus, as it fades… I think I love it more as it gives a sexier, slightly smudgy round the edges look.

Extravagant Berry is a limited edition shade that was released for Christmas 2010… it’s still around, but won’t be for much longer!

    You look stunning, what a stunning shade! Red totally suits you! You could definitely get away with it during the day! But I do agree, it’s probably best suited for the night, being that it’s so beautifully vampy :)

  26. PlatinumV says:

    I’m perplexed… the lipstick image shows a wonderful deep dark red with golden shimmer. On lips just the so-common red that each brand has. I’m really disappointed.

    Very old Hollywood, VERY glamorous! You look amazing.

  28. AlicatAHL says:

    As a rule I hate red lips – on me or on anyone as it looks, gosh how can I say this without being rude or insulting – common? BUT! By god this is a lovely red! I can’t wear red at all as I have olive toned skin and bright red dyed hair and red lips just clash big time, but I can honestly see myself at least trying this. It’s really lovely!

  29. Jennifer says:

    Wow, it is beautiful…. and the lipstick itself looks very very pretty!

  30. tass says:

    I think this colour looks absolutely AMAZING on you!
