I would love to say that I don’t get hyped by publicity but that’s not real. I try not to, but I do! I think that I saw the Pure Color love vídeo with Kendall Jenner and Elle King, two years ago, and I have to admit that I in love with the music (Wild Love by Elle King) and some lipstick colors immediatly caught my eye.
And yes, I’m talking about the color Red Bar. Who didn’t wang that color?
But the love faded away quickly because I always found Estée Lauder lipsticks too expensive, at least in Portugal (26.60€ – $22.50) and every time I had the opportunity, I always forgot about these lipsticks.
Well… last month for some reason, I remember the existence of these lipsticks and along a big discount that a well known store in Portugal made, I bought my first Pure Color Love lipstick!
I was torn between two colors, and I have to admit that it was really difficult to chose only one! In the end, I though with my brain and not my heart because I chose a nude color that can be used everyday intead of the red that my heart wanted.
It was a good choice because the color 110 RAW SUGAR is a perfect nude that can be used everyday with almost every look.
The packaging is something else, a little to big for my personal liking but gorgeous! Even my grandmother that’s almost 90 years think that the packaging is beautiful (I’m thinking abour buying one for her).
It’s so luxurious and different.
The lipstick itself comes in a shape that’s perfect to apply on the lips, making it easy and with perfect precision.
I don’t feel the need to use a lip liner but that could be because this is a nude color. Probably a bold color need a lip liner.
The Pure Color Love is available in 26 shades with four different finishes (matte, shimmer, creme and chrome). The color 110 RAW SUGAR has a matte finish. I like that this is a matte that doesn’t show the lip imperfections and dry the lips, it’s a confortable matte! But I have to admit that this matte formula doesn’ beat my favorite lipstick from Kat Von D.
In the end, I want to but another one, but with a different finish (I’m thinking about the Ripped Raisin or the Space Wire) and maybe someday I will listen to my heart and buy the Red Bar that I so much desire.
Let me know in the comments which is your favorite Pure Color Love Lipstick color.
