I mentioned in my last OOTD post that I had found the most amazing nude lipstick I have ever come across. No - truly I have. I used some of my vouchers I received from my bosses for my birthday on this purchase. I have been lusting after it with all the intensity of a schoolgirl infatuation.

In traditionally luxurious Estee Lauder packaging this lipstick is slightly fragranced with the scent of cherries. It glides onto my lips with ease, at first sheer with a hint of colour before I build up the intensity required for my specific tastes. I adore lipsticks that allow this - it makes application so much easier and I can play about  with the product to create different looks. I can go from barely there to opaque in just a few slicks of the bullet. The colour also stays true to the bullet and the product doesn't bleed or smudge.

It's very moisturising and lasts well although longevity in a product like this is never going to be especially mind blowing - most sheer lipsticks and cremes come off my pout within only half an hour so this is great in comparison as it lasts a good two hours before reapplication is necessary. Lipcote allows it to last even longer.

I've worn it every day since I purchased it. I have even worn it at work. The compliments just keep on rolling in and it's all for this lipstick. It's the best use of a voucher I've ever been given and when it runs out (which I am sure will only be within a matter of weeks because I am using it so much right now) I am definitely repurchasing it. I may even get two lest it should sell out and I am left broken-hearted.

Estee Lauder Pure Colour Vivid Shine Lipstick in 'Brilliant Bare' is available at Estee Lauder counters and on the Estee Lauder website. RRP: £19.50.
