Estee Lauder Pure Color Sheer Matte Lipstick in Naked and Rock Candy

I met up with Estee Lauder recently to have a chat about some of the loveliness that's coming down the line. A few products were on the table when I arrived and from the moment I set eyes on them, the new Sheer Matte Lipsticks held me utterly and completely in their thrall!

Estee Lauder Pure Color Sheer Matte Lipstick in Naked and Rock Candy
 
With their fresh, pretty colours, creamy matte formula and slim twist-up tubes, these lippies have a stylish, modern kinda vibe. There are two pinks (Rebel and Demure) and two corals/peaches (Naked and Rock Candy) and I was delighted to be sent off home with the latter. 

Estee Lauder Pure Color Sheer Matte Lipstick Naked Swatch
Lovers of full coverage will be delighted to hear that these aren't sheer in the slightest. They're highly pigmented and offer a lovely, longlasting matte effect with medium to full coverage - but they feel lighter on the lips than your traditional matte lipstick. As with most matte products I'd advise you prep with balm and your favourite lip scrub before you wear these products. 

Estee Lauder Pure Color Sheer Matte Rock Candy Swatch
As for the colours - well, they're absolutely gorgeous. I can't decide if the paler peachy Naked or the juicier, more vibrant tangerine coral of Rock Candy is my favourite - it really depends on my mood - but I know I'll be getting loads of wear from both in the coming months.

I think Estee Lauder is one of my least purchased brands, for some reason I never go to that counter! Def need to change that.
