Estée Lauder Signature Lipsticks



If you live in Portugal and you love fashion and magazines then you'll know that in January, Vogue Portugal surprised us with some awesome Estée Lauder Lipsticks as a gift. I live in Lisbon and it was chaos to get these lipsticks, because they were all sold out! Luckily, I got my hands into two copies (both a gift from my mom and my ex) and I was really excited with the shades and the amazing quality lipsticks! The shades that I choose were 53 Cranberry and 13 Cocoa Rose.

Cocoa Rose

(I'm sorry for the non make-up face and messy hair ahaha)

This is my all time favorite lipstick at the moment. It looks like a bold color, but it's really natural as you can see from the picture above. You can build up the color, but it will always look subtle. This is the perfect shade for me. It's an everyday color yet it can be worn on a night out and you can still rock the evening look. It has a satin finish and doesn't dry out your lips.

Cranberry


Cranberry is the perfect Marilyn Monroe lip. It's really long lasting but doesn't dry out or make your lips flaky. It's not a subtle shade like Cocoa Rose, even though is a softer red it will always show up as a blood red color on your lips... It's beautiful. You can always soften it with some lipgloss over it, that's what I do when I'm trying to reach a more natural look.

Overall, these are great lipsticks that I would definitely splurge just for the quality, so thank you Vogue!
I would love to know which are your favorite lipstick brands! xoxo*

I actually like the dark shade better. which is surprising cause usually not many can rock it. Both colors looked amazing.

I love that gold packaging! I don't think I have seen these lipsticks here in Canada, but they look great on you!

Really nice colours! They both look fabulous on you. I am not a lipstick girl (more of a lipbalm and lipgloss kind of girl) but I am trying to find lipsticks I might like. So far I really like the Rimmel London lipsticks. I find them very moisturizing.

Oh my gosh I LOVE that colour!

Ashley said...

That last one is fab and looks great on you! Love it. I might have to try this out. I've been pretty content with Clinique's "A Different Lipstick" (or something like that)...it's a lot more glossy than regular lipstick and it goes on like a dream! They don't offer too many colors, though.

Wow the packaging is really lovely! They are both great but Cocoa Rose looks amazing on you! x

Such a good offer! I love the freebies that come with magazines, esp when it's a really good brand that I wouldn't normally splash out on!

I have Cocoa rose and it's been a favourite of mine for ages - I think my first ever high end lipstick was by Estee Lauder and I've adored them ever since :)

P.S. your skin looks totally fab in the pics - mine doesnt even look that good when I've applied my makeup :p
