New must-have lipstick
This will sound crazy, but I just bought this lipstick today and on first application KNEW that I would never wear another lipstick. I have never liked wearing lipstick on my lips because the lipstick would just dry out my lips and end up peeling half way through the day and look AWFUL! So I've been looking for a tinted balm to wear but I haven't like any of them that I tried out, even tinted balms ended with the same results for me. This lipstick is my holy grail of lipstick. I apply this, and it just glides on, the pigmentation is build able and can either be worn sheer or more opaque and the length is amazing. I found myself even putting this on when I was about to go to bed because the feeling of it on my lips is BETTER than my go to lip balm. I recommend this to anyone who is looking for an amazing lip product.
Ah, where to begin? Hmmmm
I have been searching for a lip product that is moisturizing, makes your lips feel good like a lip balm, shiny like gloss (but not sticky), and pigmented like a good ole lipstick. I know that's a tall order, but I think Estee Lauder's "crystal" line is all that. Seriously...If you are searching for that 'its the color of my lips, but better' lipstick, this line is definitely worth checking out.
TEXTURE: creamy, glides on easily, doesn't settle into the lines of your lips. Over a lip primer, it applies like a dream.
PIGMENTATION: sheer, but buildable. I have naturally pigmented lips so its quite a challenge for me to wear lip colors that are lighter than my lips. I was skeptical when I first tried CRYSTAL BABY because its too light but i was pleasantly surprised that it applied true to color.
LONGEVITY: 3-4 hours. It doesn't really move around or feather even without lipliner. I go for the pinky, peachy, nude, sort of natural shades and i dont even need a mirror for touch ups.
