Estee Lauder Pure Color Lip Shine are a new chubby colored lip balm pencil that launched with the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Summer 2014 Collection recently.
The new Estee Lauder Pure Color Lip Shine ($24) are available in two shades and available for a limited time.
And I’m here to tell you all about how you should avoid them like a plague.
I have to admit it! I was SO excited when I saw Estee Lauder Pure Color Lip Shines pop up! I’m a massive fan of chubby lip balm pencils and truly the trend has not grown tired with me. I dislike reapplying lipstick and gloss as the day progresses so I stash one or even several colors in my desk drawer and makeup bags for quickie touch ups. They add a touch of sheen, moisture, and nice color to my lips.
Needless to say I was hyped that Estee Lauder decided to launch two with their Bronze Goddess Summer Collection.
These are a spot on dupe for the original Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balms. Even the two shades are easily duped from colors already available in Clinique’s permanent collection. Granted, Clinique is one of Estee Lauder’s brands so no surprise they duped these up for a repromote under the main Estee Lauder Collection.
They are $24 each and smaller than Clinique’s version!
These weight in at .08 oz where as Clinique’s are 0.1 oz at $17 a shade.
Ouch Estee Lauder y u do this to me?
Each chubby pencil swivels up so no sharpener is needed. They provide fairly nice color with a hint of a sheen on lips and a heavier yet comfortable balm-y texture that provides nice moisture to lips through the wear. Colors are nicely pigmented so you aren’t get just a hint of tint but a full color experience. Basically, they are exactly the same formulation as Clinique’s version! They even have that very slight cardboard taste that Clinique’s version has, maybe I’m crazy but it kinda tastes like that to me.

You’ve been warned! So if you’re heading to your local counter to pick up some of the Bronze Goddess Collection please do yourself a favor and remind yourself about the Clinique Chubby Balms you likely already have in your stash and save yourself some money.
