Estee Lauder Pure Color Sheer Matte Lipstick in Rebel Review

Estee Lauder came up with a new lipstick range called Pure Color Sheer Matte Lipsticks.  Don't be fooled by its' name (as I was totally fooled!)  I was expected a lip balm texture, very sheer tinted lip color like most regular "sheer lipsticks" are, but boy oh boy was I wrong!

The Pure Color Sheer Matte Lipstick aside from having a good amount of pigmentation fooled me not once but twice!  I was expecting a matte textured lipcolor but this came off with a good amount of sheen!  

Okay, are you confused?  Well, let's get confused together and read my thoughts on using this product!

  • Infused with fruit extracts that help lips feel hydrated.
  • Slim "stylo" case makes precise application easy.

AMW says ---
  • Slim twist up tube with packaging the exact same color as the lipstick shade.
  • Pigmentation is good.  Gives medium to full coverage depending on application.
  • Color fades a bit throughout the day but it lasts at least half a day!
  • Rebel is a lovely, girl-next-door color that can brighten up most Asian skin!
  • Creamy and easy to apply.
  • The product is said to contain fruit extracts to help lips feel hydrated but this is not enough for people with dry lips.
  • If you are expecting a pure matte lip color, this isn't for you!
  • May enhance the "look of dryness" due to its "sheen" texture.
  • Price.
Great packaging, pigmentation is good, gives a creamy texture with a pearly sheen finish.

  • Prep your lips by applying your favorite lip balm prior to lipstick application.
  • Exfoliation of lips may be needed (for super dry lips) as the super sheen formulation may enhance the dryness of lips.
  • If you suffer from dry lips, an extra application of lip gloss on top of the lipstick will create a nice, fuller-looking lips!
Will I repurchase?

To whom do I recommend this to?
Anyone who likes a sheen, pearly pink lipstick color.

Where to purchase and how much?
At local Estee Lauder counter for Php1,350.00 (approx $33.75). Like Estee Lauder Philippines on Facebook for more product updates.

It enhanced the dryness of my lips due to the extra sheen it gives!
The Pure Color Sheer matte Lipstick in Rebel would look great paired with a lip gloss on top!

  1. The colour is lovely, but what a bummer that it emphasizes dryness!

    1. Yes it does, but don't blame the lipstick, blame my super dry lips! heheheh :D

  2. The color looks really cute and girly! Wondering how is the peachy shade looks like :P

    1. I think it'll look great! the peachy shade and the nude and red shade! :D hahaha I think they all look great in their unique ways!

  3. I like the colors. I wonder if they have natural colors?

    1. Those on photos are the only shades available in this collection :) There's a nude one which I think would look natural :D (depending on your skin tone)
