Go Glam with Estee Lauder Pure Colour Crystal Lipstick : Review & Swatches

Estee Lauder Pure Color Crystal Lipstick- Cherry Blossom & Firelight

I got these two beauties as a gift - these two were part of a travel exclusive set- there was one more which I gave to mom! I have been meaning to do this post for a long time but I realized the hand swatches were looking similar - so I did lip swacthes too! They are more accurate about how they look on lips.

Cherry Blossom- baby pink with fine silver shimmer which is non gritty
Firelight- a pale peach with subtle golden duochrome effect.

Price-$25 for full size

Size- 2.5g/Travel size (was part of a travel exclusive set)

What does the company Say:
Color so incredible, it leaves your lips wanting more.

True Vision™ technology takes ordinary color and makes it extraordinary.

In a seductive spectrum of sheer, brilliant shades, from sublime to vivid.

Maximized color impact
Magnified vibrancy, clarity and dimension
Amplified brilliance
All in a sheer formula.

In 2 seductive finishes:
Sheer, Crystal Creme
Brilliant, Crystal Shimmer
Sheer-to-medium, buildable coverage
Wears for hours
Stays color true

Enriched with lip-loving ingredients, including apricot kernel, shea butter and murumuru butter that leave lips soft and creamy smooth.

Beautiful packaging

Each lipstick has a tiny mirror tucked in the cover!

Cherry Blossom


  • Firstly I LOVE the packaging- the golden metallic case with a secret flip-out mirror - its just gorgeous as well as functional - feels substantial and luxurious
  • They provide good coverage, are soft and smooth to apply.
  • The shades are pretty but too pale - but will suit only fair skin tones.
  • The shimmer is very fine and non-gritty- thankfully!
  •  After the lipstick fades - I can still see glitter on my lips - esp for cherry blossom
  • The shades might not suit most indian skin tones
The Last Word:
Of all the crystal/shimmer lipsticks I have tried - they are the smoothest and most comfortable to wear. I have this tick about how  a lipstick 'feels'/should feel - if it doesn't feel right on the lips- I somehow lose interest very quickly. These two however score in that department. The colours are a little pale for my liking ...
BUT ...For me they are good for their money just for their awesome packaging!
Have you tried other shades in this range??
