Estee Lauder Pure Colour 65 Exotic Orchid Shimmer Long Lasting Lipstick Review & Swatches


Estee Lauder Pure Colour 65 Exotic Orchid Shimmer

Long Lasting Lipstick

I love Estee Lauder Pure colour long lasting lipstick range which is their regular line and have shared review for RED TANGO in past. I’m back with another shade Exotic Orchid shimmer which was Gift with purchase and hence this packaging however the quality, texture and fragrance is all same which is why I so love to wear this regularly.

Shade – No 65 Exotic Orchid Shimmer is cool toned Reddish pink shade overloaded with ruby red and silver shimmer but it is not uncomfortable on lips and doesn’t run around once it wears off . It is very flattering shade of pink and will suit most of the skin tones easily.

Texture – It is soft, creamy and easy to glide and have light weight feel to it. It doesn’t settle in fine lines and never made my lips dry due to good oil contents.

Pigmentation – It is wonderfully pigmented lipstick and is opaque in two swipes covering every corner of lips with so much ease.

Packaging – The lipstick I have is GWP and hence comes in sleek white case while the regular ones come in golden bulky classy tubes which are style statement.

Staying power – I get 4 plus hours of wear with this and then it leaves a soft pink tint behind and the last traces of shimmer needs to be removed by a good makeup remover.

What I like about Estee Lauder Pure Colour Exotic Orchid Shimmer Long Lasting Lipstick:

  • I love the raspberry pink shade.
  • The shimmer is fine and easy on lips.
  • The staying power is good.
  • The fig fragrance is nice.
  • The texture is comfortable on lips.

What I don’t like about Estee Lauder Exotic Orchid Shimmer Long Lasting Lipstick:

  • The new price hike is little too much.
  • They are not easily available across India.
  • The shimmer may be little too much if you have uneven lips.

Ratings – 4.5/5

Recommendations – I absolutely adore this lip shade and once I finish this off I will buy it in regular classy and bulky golden packaging as this is such a comfortable shade to wear and looks wonderful at the same time. There are some pinks which look too dark or too neon but this is very flattering shade on NC 40 skin tone and all I would say.
