If you've been reading my blog for a little while now, you will know that I love lipsticks as I don't stop banging on about them! In my Estee Lauder Lipsticks post, which you can find HERE, I briefly mentioned one of the Lipsticks Exotic Orchid Shimmer. I am in love with this lipstick, it has become my new obsession.
It was always one of those lipsticks that I would wear only on a night out, due to the vibrancy and the paleness of my skin but over the past two weeks I have been wearing it every single day.

Packaging: Love Love LOVE the packaging. Sleek, shiny gold tubes. What more can you ask for?
Scent: Most Estee Lauder Lipsticks have a particular scent that I can't quite put my finger on but it I do love it. It's fruity but not too overpowering which is what appeals to me.
Durability: The durability of this lipstick is great. Stayed on for pretty much my whole day at work with just a few touch ups and it also didn't dry my lips out which is an added bonus!
Consistency: This lipstick goes on like a dream, it's so creamy but it does tend to slip during the day. I would definitely recommend bringing a compact with a mirror with you if you are wearing this lipstick as no one wants lipstick smudged all over their face!
Price: The price is something I dislike about this, and all Estee Lauder products. I can justify spending £18 when I have the money but if I don't, I do feel it is a little steep for a lipstick.
If you like Estee Lauder lipsticks, or just bright colours and don't mind spending £18 on a lipstick then I highly recommend this! This is by far my favourite lipstick in my whole collection!
