Double Wear Stay-in-Place Lipstick
Wow, this is a truly matte lipstick! It goes on surprisingly creamy and then dries down to a long-wearing, non-slip finish. No worry about slippage into lines around the mouth, that’s for sure. For those who are used to creamy or glossy lipsticks, you will not be happy with this one, but if you would like to stop using lipsticks that quickly run into lines, then this should be high on your list. Because this has a dry finish, you may be tempted to apply a gloss over it, but that negates the benefit of a matte lipstick and the same potential problems will ensue. Lauder’s shade range is beautiful and every color provides full coverage.
With 12-hour wear, the color you love is here to stay. All-day silky. All-day comfortable. All-day gorgeous. Rich, stay-in-place color is creamy and smooth, with a satin shine. Transfer-resistant. Non-drying formula feels comfortable to wear. Apply once and don't think twice about it.
Estee Lauder At-A-Glance
The history of Estee Lauder goes back to 1946, when the woman who created the brand (and for whom it is named) began selling creams and lotions made by her chemist uncle. From its humble beginnings, Estee Lauder has grown to become a multibillion-dollar company whose products are sold all over the world and advertised in just about every fashion and women's lifestyle magazine available.
The biggest compliment we can pay to the venerable Estee Lauder line is that their moisturizers and serums can largely be described as state-of-the-art. Though fragrance is often intrusive, but when it comes to formulary excellence culminating in products that give skin what it needs to function optimally, they are tough to beat.
When it comes to makeup, by and large the brand also exceeds expectations. Though there are some under-performing products (you can read more about them in our individual reviews), Lauder has a number of excellent options, most notably its lip colors.
