Pure Color Sensuous Rouge Lip Color is described as having “two-moisture rich formulas: Ultra creamy color outside, lip-loving elixir in the center.” Visually the lipstick has two colors, one in the center with a slightly different shade and texture from the one wrapped around it on the outside. The two shades blend together on the lips and you get one color with a creamy, moisturizing feel, just like you get from many lipsticks without the gimmick of a two-toned stick.

The shades range from berries and pinks to nudes and reds, some of which are more pearlescent or shimmery. The color itself applies with medium coverage, and while the formula is supposed to be long-wearing and feather-resistant, we found it to be average in both cases. Though not a bad lipstick, there’s nothing about this that warrants the high price tag.


  • Shades range from berries and pinks to nudes and reds.
  • Creamy texture feels moisturizing on lips.


  • Some shades overdo the shimmer.
  • Despite claims, doesn’t perform above average for long wear or feather-resistance.
  • Pricey for what ends up being just a lipstick.

Brand Overview

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.
