Estee Lauder Pure Color High Intensity Lip Lacquer in Liquid Petal review and swatches.

Estee Lauder Cosmetics produces some amazing products. The Double Wear Foundation is my HG foundation, the Pure Color blushes are highly pigmented and contain 7 grams worth of product, and their nail polishes are some of the best in the business.  My newest procurement, Pure Color High Intensity Lip Lacquer in Liquid Petal ($25 US/ 6g) is a welcomed addition to my ever growing Estee Lauder family. Since, I already reviewed Pure Color Lip Lacquer in Ruby Glow in great detail (here), I will make this review short and sweet….that remains to be seen!

The Pros:

  1. Highly pigmented gloss.
  2. Gorgeous mauve/pink color.  Pulls slightly pinky peach against my skin tone.
  3. Can be applied without a mirror due to the lighter-tone pigment composition (be vigilant and apply a thin layer).
  4. Slightly thick consistency will ensure the shine and color remain.
  5. Liquid Petal lasted three hours full strength.
  6. Specially designed curved applicator hugs the lips for comfortable and precise application.
  7. Very moisturizing..does not dry out your lips when the color has faded.
  8. Makes lips look plump and sexy.
  9. Wipes cleanly without any sticky residue.

The Cons:

  1. For some reason Liquid Petal does have a slight Play-doe fragrance.
  2. Liquid Petal contains miro-shimmers (not too offensive or noticeable).
  3. Petrolatum is an ingredient (AKA: mineral oil/vaseline).
  4. Liquid Petal does feather into fine lines around the mouth if a primer/lipliner/lipstick is not used beforehand.
  5. Liquid Petal does feather into fine lines if too much product is applied on the lips (I prefer to apply one layer with the applicator and use my fingers to blend out the color. Another option is to place the color on the back of your hand and dab some gloss with your finger to the center of the lips).
  6. Performs better over a lipliner/lipstick combo (with lipliner alone it did bleed out into my fine lines).

**Drugstore Alternative:  NYX Xtreme Lip Creams (purchase here).   I could not tolerate the heavy Play-doe smell and gloppy gloss reserve around the applicator.  

THE VERDICT:  If makeup could talk what would it say?

Makeup would tell you if you are interested in a paler shade of gloss, but desire pigment  and longevity in your product, then Estee Lauder Pure Color High Intensity Lip Lacquer in Liquid Petal is the shade for you. Personally, I find this particular color to perform really well over a lipliner/lipstick combo.  The less dense pink pigment did not allow Liquid Petal to last as long as Ruby Glow, but that is to be expected with any lighter colored lip product.  I am currently eyeing Peach Glass and Wet Plum.  Have you tried any of these Lip Lacquers?  Be well and stay safe.
