– if you don’t like sheer and shiny glosses, this isn’t for you
I’ve never been a huge fan of sheer glosses, but when they sparkle and shine as beautifully as Estee Lauder Pure Color Gloss in Raspberry Pop does, it’s impossible not to fall in love with them.
Despite its name, Raspberry Pop doesn’t look raspberry at all. Not on my lips anyway. Infused with fine, multi-coloured shimmers, the colour looks more a sheer but bright pink on me. It gives my pout just a hint of colour and lots of shine that’s not, however, over the top.
You can easily wear it during the day, although I prefer to pair it with smokey eyes to add a touch of brilliance to the look when I go on a night out with my girlfriends.
Fairly hydrating, its non-sticky texture feels comfortable on my lips and lasts for an impressive three hours. That’s if I don’t eat nor drink, of course. Most glosses barely reach two hours of wear on me so I was pleasantly surprised Raspberry Pop stayed put for longer.
My only disappointment was the scent. It’s sweet, sugary, and delicious, but smells nothing like raspberry. Not that it claimed to do so. It would just have been cool if it did. I love raspberries. If sweet scents aren’t your thing, don’t worry. This one disappears quickly.
What about the flavour? Raspberry Pop doesn’t have one. The neutral flavour may not be delicious, but will at least ensure your gloss will stay on your lips until it naturally disappears. When glosses taste good, I just can’t help licking them all off my lips!
Infused with multi-coloured shimmers, Estee Lauder Pure Color Gloss in Raspberry Pop tints lips with a sheer pink hue and makes them sparkle. The texture is fairly hydrating, non-sticky, and longlasting.
