If you are going to be anywhere near an airport soon these should be top of your wishlist, I am completely in love. I haven’t really tried much in the way of high end lipstick .. MAC is pretty much my limit and if I’m honest I didn’t think they could be any better. What I had tried hadn’t massively impressed me so I wasn’t expecting to love these but they are NICE. From what I can tell these colours are travel exclusives, available at World Duty Free stores only so I’m not going to make a big song and dance about the ones I have specifically but the FORMULA is just lush!
I’m wearing Tumultuous Pink, it’s so difficult to photograph.. comes off much more red than in person but I swear this was just one swipe.. SO opaque, gorgeous finish but what I was most impressed by was the wear time. I did experience minor bleeding so I would likely wear a liner next time but they feel so moisturising you just don’t expect them to last. I applied it in the afternoon, ate dinner, had some drinks etc and when I went to bed it was still there.. a little rough around the edges but seriously.. I couldn’t believe it. I’ve heard only good things about Estee Lauder lipsticks but never bit the bullet (pardon the pun) because I just didn’t believe they could be worth the price tag but you live you learn. If you’re looking to treat yourself to something a little pricier (or a friend for Christmas) I would highly recommend them!
This set was sent to me and as I mentioned is a travel exclusive available from World Duty Free however you can purchase the individual shades online here for £24.00 each – EDIT: my initial link seemed to skin these colours however I’ve found them since – so they ARE available as singles as well as in the set.. bonus!
