Valentine Kisses: Estée Lauder Lip Gelée and Lipstick from the Wild Violet 2011 Collection (review)

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! I got all cranky last Thursday about the day of romance; so I'm balancing things out today with pretty pink stuff. For looking nice. And kissing people. And...stuff. From Estée Lauder.

Limited Edition Pure Color Lip Gelée (in “Electric Pink” and “Electric Cherry”)

Blurb: Ultra-light, ultra-sheer, clear gel gloss sweeps on a splash of color and wet, luminous shine. Exclusively in the Wild Violet collection for Spring 2011.

NEW Pure Color Long Lasting Lipstick (in “Wild Blossom”)

Blurb: Color so incredible, it leaves your lips wanting more. True Vision™ technology takes ordinary color and makes it extraordinary. In a seductive spectrum of shades, from sublime to vivid.

Whether you’re a lipstick lady or a gloss girl, the spring collection has wonderful kissable things that will make you very happy (and luckily you don’t have to wait for spring).

The Gelées are lightweight ultra sheer glosses with tons of slick shine. They go on smoothly without any heavy or sticky feeling. And I love the sheer color. “Electric Cherry” is a yummy, fresh maraschino, and “Electric Pink” is like a swoosh of candy. On the flip side, the new lipsticks provide dense, vibrant color. They go on like velvet, feel lovely and have wonderful staying power. “Wild Blossom” (a warm pale pink with a bit of gold shimmer) is about as romantic a shade as you can get.

The website has the entire Spring 2011 Collection (Wild Violet). It’s really gorgeous. Check out the colors on the Virtual Makeup Tool while you’re there. Estée Lauder is also available in fine department stores.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
