I Forgot I Had This: Red Apple from Estee Lauder
When someone has as much lipstick as me, there are times I forget what I have. I know it’s not a bad problem to have and I do feel very fortunate. I am on a mission though to rediscover my collection and bring some of these forgotten lippies into the spotlight. Today’s long-lost oldie but goodie? Estee Lauder’s Pur Colour in Red Apple, an earthy cool-toned red that is quite simply a perfect colour for the Fall and Winter.
I’ve had this lipstick in my collection for about a year. I bought it on a whim, and quickly forgot about it when I got *distracted* by other makeup. Yes, that is how it goes.
Now that I have rediscovered it, I think I will wear it more often. It feels great on — smooth to apply and moisturizing. On the lips, it has a nice sheen almost as if I’m wearing gloss on top. Lasting power is also decent – I probably got four to five hours wear without having to reapply. And the colour? Absolutely beautiful. I think it’s a red that can complement many skintones, and definitely swatch worthy next time you’re at the Estee Lauder counter.
I whipped out Red Apple last week to complement my outfit of the day: a red skirt paired with black & white striped shirt, black sweater, black tights and black boots. I also had my favorite red owl pendant from Forever 21. I liked how it turned out though I still don’t have a knack for taking pictures of my outfits. How does one stand when doing this? Certainly not the way I’m standing here!
