Name: Pure Color Gloss in Raspberry Pop
Brand: Estee Lauder
Size: 0.2 fl oz
Price: $24.00

From Estee Lauder’s website:
Lip Gloss with the power to light up your face. True Vision™ technology transforms ordinary color and makes it extraordinary.
High performance wear. Feels light and luscious, never sticky. Drenched with conditioners. Smooths on precisely, stays on perfectly.
In a wide range of wearable shades with lasting shine for a lasting impression.

What I liked:
– gives lips a hint of colour and lots of shine
– shimmers are fine, don’t feel gritty, and make lips sparkle beautifully
– hydrating, non-sticky texture
– good staying power
– sweet scent

What I didn’t like:
– 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.

Marina, it really does, doesn’t it? I’ve been wearing it a lot lately.

Quite pretty on the lips, but hoped it would be a bit more pigmented with that lovely berry color.

Monica, it seems a bit of a shame to create such a lovely shade and not make it more intense, doesn’t it? But even sheer, it looks beautiful on.

This is so nice! And I love that it isn’t sticky. Yep, this one looks like a success.

Trisha, it is! It’s one of my fave glosses at the moment.

I would definitely expect more pigmentation for this shade, but it looks lovely anyways:)

Helena, it is lovely indeed.
