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.
(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 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*
