Hi beautiful ladies!
I am back after a long time with a review of one of my most favorite lipstick- Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Lipstick in Stay Mauve, Shade no: DWL 05. With its classy packaging, it was love at first sight for me- even before the MUA swatch it for me, I was sold!
Simply put together- I love, love, LOVE this shade!
A great everyday day, read on to find out how it fares!
Name: Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Lipstick: Rouge a LevresTenue Extreme
Price: â‚¬ 21.10
Availability: Picked it up from Athens Duty Free on my holidays there
Shade Name: Stay Mauve, Shade no: DWL 05
My Experience with Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Lipstick in DWL 05 Stay Mauve :
This happens to be one of my most favorite lipsticks. Its insanely pigment and one single swipe on your lips will cover even the most pigmented of the lips. However, I apply two swipes of the same and also allow a minute or two between the next applications. It stays almost the entire day- intact!
The color glides on like butter and even though it is a super long staying lipstick, it is not drying at all. Whatâ€™s more, the color applies evenly on your lips- it does not come out patchy.
The Color: Stay Mauve
This color is just perfect for everyday use. You can wear it to office or college and if you put just a single swipe of the color, it is somewhat like MLBB. I mostly use it for regular wear- I wear it to office most of the time.
The color is just amazing- its mauve, but with a red undertone and is definitely on the pink spectrum. In a word- a great everyday color! A perfect choice for both the cool and warm toned beauties.
I have tried using single swipe of the lipstick on top of Nivea lip glosses and it looked superb, yet very very natural. This color is great for everyday wear. You can also glam up the color with your favorite gloss for some extra bling for night outs as well- and in that case it fares extremely well too!! I have tried this out, and it was amazing- unfortunately I donâ€™t have a snap of the same 🙁
Texture: Itâ€™s creamy and not matte and drying! When applied, it will not tug your skin, but will glide on smoothly, very unlike the long staying lipsticks that I have used. It has sheen to it, as you can see from the pictures below, but after sometime the sheen fades off and the shade becomes more matte, though your lips will not dry out!

Staying Power: This is where the lipstick is surely a winner and a complete value for money- it stays on for hours even in this hot and humid climate of Kolkata when put alone- I mean without glosses or lip balms. This is by far, one of the best lipsticks that I used. It does stay on for hours- more than 8 hours (and more if you are going without a meal that long 😉
With meal, as with all lipsticks, you have to be careful, and it somewhat fades, though it leaves behind a beautiful tint for the rest of the day.
You will not need another application! No budging, no smudging and no settling into fine lines, what more can you ask?
And here is me wearing the color in natural daylight and sporting my new custom made earring 🙂
To sum up
What I like about Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Lipstick in DWL 05 Stay Mauve:

What I don’t like about Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Lipstick in DWL 05 Stay Mauve:

I LOVE IT 🙂
