OK, I’m sold! Every cosmetics line has to have a go at “All Day“, “Kiss and Stay“, never re-apply lipstick. (Personally, I never really minded the necessity of re-applying—-just a girly little thing to do occasionally, but hey, that’s just me!) But now comes Estee with their latest go at all day wear, “Double Wear” lipstick with 12-hour staying power. I had a chance to test it over this weekend and I must say ladies, this lipstick sticks! The advertising says its “creamy and smooth with a satin shine“. Though I’m a new fan, I’d quibble just a bit with the description. It goes just a little bit “tacky” on the lips...not sticky, but not quite “smooth“. Also, I see it as more to the mat side than “satin“.  

I bought Stay Plumberry and Stay Mocha and I’d have to say that the Mocha was so close to the color of my own lips that it wasn’t powerful enough for a lipstick queen like me and that “Plumberry” was, to me, more Fuchsia than plummy. But I have never know if we should take lipstick names like that to literally describe a color. I think not.  

The tube is Estee-chic, gold over a sort of lapis blue bottom. A male friend who was around this weekend for my experimenting told me that the tube looked like a high-end shotgun shell! I’m not experienced enough in the field, so if you have a hubby or boyfriend that’s a hunter-dude, I suppose you could ask him. All I could do was to say something like; “Well then, come over here and put a big ka-boom on my kisser“! Details next week.  

So in the final analysis, go for it! After all Estee is Es-Stay!
