The Great Kiss Off 2009: Estee Lauder Pure Color Lipstick

The Great Kiss Off continues!
Today’s tester is Miss Lisa Clark of Portsmouth, author of the really rather fabulous Lola Love books (which you can buy here) and editor of Pink World (which you can find here!). Unsurprisingly, we gave her a beautiful bright pink lippie to test and here are the results.


1. What did you test for us missy?
Estee Lauder Pure Color Crystal lipstick 327 Raspberry Pop

2. How do you feel about the packaging?
It’s very lux-fabulous with a gold lid that can double as a mirror!

3. And how you feel about the colour in the tube
It’s a perfect pink with a hint of sparkle – j’adore.

4. How easy was it to apply?
It’s super-moisturising and glided on straight from the tube, although, fact fans, when applied with a brush it lasted much longer.

5. How does it feel on?
It smells dee-lish and is really soft with no stickiness – perfect!

6. How long did it last?
It stayed put during cocktail sipping, pizza eating and neck nuzzling and I only needed to reapply pre-kissing, which was inevitable as my lips looked so prettylicious!

7. Important stuff. How does it perform under kissing pressure?
Well, there was kissing in the street, in the park, under a street light, in the rain and even on his sofa so when I told him I had to ‘powder my nose’ when actually I was checking for kiss off results, I was pleasantly surprised that my lips were still pink, not perfectly pink, but still totally kissable!

8. And any other exciting kiss off related stories?
While the lipstick is practically magic in a gold tube when it comes to creating a perfect pink pout, it was unfortunately unable to make the boy-type I was kissing less complicated – Estee Lauder, if you could work on that for next Valentine’s Day that would be awesome – thank you!

Hmm, I’m not sure even Estee Lauder can pull the boy-types into line but we’ll have a word.
FYI, the lipsticks featured aren’t Raspberry Pop but you get the idea right? They look like that, just more Raspberry and Popish…http://0
