Estee Lauder’s creative makeup director Tom Pecheux have created a doubly brilliant lip colour for this season. Combining a bold, deeply pigmented lipstick with the hydrating and dazzling sheen of a gloss in the core, Pure Color Sensuous Rouge could be the ultimate lipstick, if you could tolerate the strong scent of Lauder’s lipstick.
I like Rose Exposed & Wistful Wisteria. At £20 a fix, it better be brilliant !
