Part of the Spring “Pretty Naughty” Collection, the limited edition Pure Color Sheer Matte Lipsticks by Estée Lauder offer a creamy, lightweight matte formula with a sheer and satin finish. Infused with hydrating fruit extracts, the lip colors also radiate light-perfecting pearls so the shades won’t appear flat.
Available in 4 shades divided into 2 different color groups:
Peach/Coral – Naked & Rock Candy
Pink – Rebel & Demure.

Matte formulas are often drying on the lips, and these are no exception. I’m a tad disappointed considering the brand’s lipsticks have been kind to my dehydrated lips such as the Lasting Creme & Crystal Creme ranges. This drying flaw can be rectified with a generous slather of lip balms or Vaseline prior to application, but they leave a sheen that contradict the matte finish.
The lip colors are extremely pigmented, despite them being marketed as sheer, with medium-full coverage. They are also creamy and long-lasting – you’ll have to use a good makeup remover because tissues & wet wipes aren’t going to be good enough.
