LIPPIE: Estee Lauder GWP II

  Okay, it's Sunday. I am a little behind in publishing a post. I'm sorry. I do not have a legit excuse, other than the fact that I have been tired and lazy. Hey, at least I'm honest =). I have a few backlogged posts that I need to finish start, please bear with me! I hope everyone has been doing well! 
  As the name suggests, this is a continuation of some GWP items I received. Normally, I do not particularly enjoy the lipsticks or lipglosses that come with GWPs, just because I feel as though they are mediocre in quality and do not speak to or reflect the real product at all. However, this combination is love. 
   I went and swatched the real Hydra Lustre Lipstick in Tender Mauve...and it was completely different than the GWP one. It was a strange thing. The GWP is a beautiful warm pink with silver shimmers but the shimmers are insanely gritty if worn alone. The actual product is deeper in tone and the grit is non-existent. The Pure Color Gloss in Berry is still available I believe, and it is a pretty pink with silver shimmer. Just from reading the descriptions, you can tell that they make a great pair. The gloss greatly smooths out the gritty texture of the lipstick. 
  They are both quite sheer but I rather like them this way. I do not look like I have a lot of lip product on my lips, great if you want a low-maintenance lip color. Here is a swatch of them layered together:
Pretty, right? 
I have purchased some items from Guerlain's Spring 2011 collection, and an item from CHANEL's Spring 2011 Collection. I have also purchased the new Revlon Colorburst lipgloss, which by far, is the best drugstore gloss in my opinion. It is so much better than the Super Lustrous formula. I will have posts on these once I am satisfied with the photos. By the time I get home from work, it is complete darkness outside so I am having a hard time...finding time =_='.  An item I am anticipating is the new Rouge Coco Shine by CHANEL, which is set to launch worldwide in April. 

What's new with you? 
Products: 1. Estee Lauder Hydra Lustre Lipstick - $24CAN  2. Estee Lauder High Gloss - $18CAN


  1. These two do look pretty combined together. I like Estee Lauder's colors but can't handle the sweet fragrance. Which Rouge Coco Shine shades are you planning to pick up? They're coming soon!!

  2. @ Kristie - I'm alive! I've picked up 5 so far: Boy, Elise, Deauville, Bel-ami and Biarritz. Elise is a The Bay exclusive and LE from what I was told =D. Thanks for the comment!
