Estee Lauder Pure Color Sensuous Rouge Lip Color Review

I was attracted to this lipstick because of its beautiful packaging. I think it has one of the prettiest looking lipstick tubes I've ever seen (a tie with the YSL Rouge Volupte). As seen below, it comes in a slim tube with the Estee Lauder logo etched in gold, similar to other lipsticks in the Pure Color range.

Product details:
So addictive, your lips will crave more. The only lipstick with indulgent, creamy color wrapped around a luscious soft center.

Our most moisturizing lipstick. Caresses your lips with two-moisture rich formulas: Ultra creamy color outside, lip-loving elixir in the center. For a double infusion of delicious color and moisture.

Lips have never felt this sensuous. Contains an exotic blend of fruit extracts, including red raspberry seed oil, passionfruit, and murumuru and shea butters. Plus a new warm vanilla scent.

  • Maximized color impact
  • Magnified vibrancy, clarity and dimension
  • Amplified brilliance
Soft, luminous finish.
  • Light-catching pearls create a soft, luminous finish.
  • Lips instantly look fuller.
  • Buttery-smooth texture.

Medium-to-full, build-able coverage.
  • Long-lasting wear

NYX Butter Gloss Review

I must admit that l am definitely not a lip gloss person.  I usually prefer lipsticks and balms mainly because I dislike sticky formulas on my lips. However, I've heard great things about NYX's Butter Glosses and I am willing to make an exception and test these out. I bought two shades from SM Makati for PHP340 each.

Post Holiday Haul: Guerlain, Shiseido, Chanel

I went a little bit overboard with my haul this weekend. I'm going to blame it on my year-long makeup hiatus. As I have mentioned on my latest wishlist, I haven't purchased any makeup for almost a year and was totally out of date when it came to cosmetics released from mid to late 2013. Everything I bought were released during this time, and I did my homework researching each product before committing to a purchase.

I bought the following products: 

Guerlain's Rouge Automatiques from the Crazy Paris Collection: 660 Illusion and 661 Reflex (PHP1900 each)
Shiseido's Sheer and Perfect Foundation (PHP2200)
Chanel's Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Powder (PHP2850)

Learn more about these products after the break!
