My take on the Product

 

The Estee Lauder Pure Color lipsticks come in a beautiful gold packaging with a colored bottom and a EL monogrammed clasp. The packaging looks luxurious and feels weighty in a good way. The texture of this lipstick is super smooth, it glides like butter on the lips delivering saturated pure color in a single stroke. What I like is that its supremely creamy without the telltale patchiness or creasing that accompanies very creamy lip colors. It applies absolutely perfectly in a single swipe with a creamy satin finish. I find the formula comfortable on the lips – its hydrating and softens the lips. Because its quite staining, the color wears well. I get about 4-5 hours of wear after which the shine wears off giving a matte warm red stain that lingers for a few more hours. Considering its a creamy red lipstick, its fairly low maintenance with no feathering, bleeding without a lip liner underneath. ย Overall, an excellent classic lipstick formula that is timeless and beautiful! The only downside of a formula like this is that if you apply on very dry lips, the color tends to settle into lip lines as it fades after a few hours.

 

Red Tango is a warm brick red with an orange undertone. Generally brick reds seem subtle but this one really pops on my complexion. Having said that, I find it quite easy to wear and carry. I’m wearing this as I type this without anything else on my face and it actually looks great. Generally reds are difficult to carry on a bare face! Red Tango is great as a stain for a softer day look and instantly glams you up when worn to its full intensity.

If you’re looking for a red lipstick, do check out Red Tango. There is something magical about a punchy red lipstick with a formula and packaging as luxurious as Estee Lauder!

Rating : 4.8/5

      Hey Deeptika, Runway Red has more brown in it and looks less vibrant on the lips.

    Very pretty colour. A great red for the Indian skin tone.

    My Estee Lauder pure color lipstick broke on second application, the bullet simply broke from the base and it tilted into the tube! I read that this is a common complaint regarding Estee Lauder lipsticks – check blogs/estee lauder website and paula’s choice!.

    The lipstick became messy as it drags along the sides everytime I open it and I cannot open it much as the base is broken. Too bad for such a price.

    Hot and sexy red shade , worth trying while parties ๐Ÿ˜€

  30. March 17, 2015 / 7:57 am

    Runway red will look beautiful in wedding.

    I Love this Color on you! It Looks Natural and sophisticated at the same time and your eyes are glowing.
    My favorite red is also a warm one, which is rather vampy – BB Luxe Lipstick Parisian Red. Since that one I look for similar colors with a slightly different texture.
    That looks good, too!
