Estee Lauder Pure Color Sheer Rush Lipshine and Sheer Rush Gloss Review

Hey Guys,

Today's post is going to be a review of the new Estee Lauder Pure Color Sheer Rush lip products that I have been testing out for quite sometime now.

The Pure Color lip shine in Plexi Pink:
This is a sheer lipstick which reminds me of Revlon's Lip Butters but with a harder consistency. They go on smoothly but do not provide much colour even on layering it. It looks like a tinted lipbalm on the lips. Does not last very long, I had it on for about 2 hours and it was gone by the end of the 2 hours. The good thing is it does not leave the lips feeling dry after it has worn off. I could not find these on the Estee Lauder website but I am sure that the Estee Lauder counters still stock these. I bought this for A$45

The Pure Color Sheer Rush Gloss in Hot Fuse:
This is a sheer red lipgloss which provides good color payoff and feels great on the lips. It does not last very long, say about 2 hours after which the glossiness reduces to a sheen. I love how it feels, non sticky and gel like. The consistency reminds me of the YSL Glossy stains having that gel like feel on the lips. Honestly I hate lip glosses because they are usually sticky but this lip gloss has made me change my opinion about them. I have tried MAC, Lancome and Chanel lip glosses and hated them all. It does not leave the lips feeling dry after the shine has worn off which is a plus point. The retail price for this product is A$42. On the Estee Lauder website all the colors have sold out but I am sure they are still available at the EL counters. 

Overall I am very impressed with the gloss, not so much with the lip shine. In fact the gloss is more pigmented than the lip shine. I would highly recommend you to at least try the gloss on when you visit an Estee Lauder counter because it is amazing.

Till next time,


  1. Amzingly sexy colours! Looks good on you!

  2. I LOVE Estée Lauder lipsticks!
