Ring in the Holidays with Estee Lauder Ruby Glow Pure Color High Intensity Lip Lacquer ($25) shade of warm red! There’s something about festive reds for the Holidays and oh, how awesome is Estee Lauder Pure Color High Intensity Lip Lacquer?

Please tell me you tried them by now after all my raving….!?

Estee Lauder Ruby Glow Pure Color High Intensity Lip Lacquer is a high shine liquid lipstick-like consistency with a thicker texture, incredible shine, and dramatic full coverage color. The intense pigment on these Lip Lacquer astounds! They are just so crazy pigmented. The texture is slightly tacky and wears for a solid seven hours (this is actually a little longer than other shades I tested!).

Ruby Glow is a blood red but doesn’t have blue undertones and more of a brown base which means it is utterly wearable for me as I prefer warmer shades of red. The color is dramatic, bold, and dare I say very sexy.

It does drag a little during application so I find I need to apply and reapply a bit with the sponge. Sort of smoothing it over so I get an even finish on my lips. The color will migrate and feather so a transparent or colored lip liner is recommended to keep the shade in place.

If you’re looking for a dramatic lip look Estee Lauder Pure Color High Intensity Lip Lacquer deserves a shout out. This beautifully textured hybrid formula has the shine of the gloss, the pigment of a lipstick, and the texture of a lacquer. With 12 shades to choose from, currently Ruby Glow being my personal fav, you have plenty of variety for your bold lip looks!
