Estée Lauder 'Pure Color - Vivid Shine' Lipstick Luminizer
Darkens bright shades of lipsticks
Darkens bright shades of lipsticks that are better suited for summer. Gives off a nice subtle sparkle and sheen. I've used it to take a pink-red shade into a nice jewel tone for the holidays. I would definitely recommend.
Looks great layered over pink lipstick, and it leaves my lips feeling smooth and silky. I wouldn't wear this by itself, but I love that I have literally doubled my lipstick collection since this converts my old shades into fun new looks.
I have to admit I was a little skeptical that the gunmetal luminizer could actually intensify a lipstick color. I was very much impressed when, after a day of work and wearing the delicious apple vivid shine, I touched up my makeup for a happy hour event and applied the luminizer for a more intense, evening look. The color was stunning and was exactly what I was looking for. I've experimented the luminizer with other colors and have liked the results as well. Word of warning, tho, you do not need too much...just one, brief layer should get the intensity you are looking for. Any more than that and you may find it too dark and too intense if you are fair skinned. Also note that the luminizer has a very light grainy feel to it, but it dissipates as it absorbs fully into your lipstick.
