Estee Lauder Signature Hydra Lustre Lipstick Spanish Red Review, Swatches, LOTD

Hello lovely ladies,

Today I am here with a classic red lipstick from Estee Lauder. Red lips are quintessentially sexy. I have hundreds of red lipsticks and still feel like buying a hundred more. There is nothing like red lipstick. So without further ado, let us see how this cult favorite lipstick from Estee Lauder fared on me.

Estee Lauder says:-
An extraordinary lipstick. Creamy & seductive in color. Gives smooth, lustrous & shine finish. Rich & conditioning effect, yet soft & light. Long wearing with hours of moisture.

A gorgeous golden case. It is sturdy and you’ll feel like “Yes, I am holding a lipstick of 48$”

Shade and Texture:-
A beautiful warm red with a glossy finish. Very wearable and will suit our Indian skin tone perfectly. Texture is very soft and creamy. It is smooth and fuss free to apply. The rich, hydrating formula feels light and comfortable.

Pigmentation and Staying Power:-
It is incredibly pigmented; just 1 swipe for those luscious lips. But being a glossy lipstick, it doesn't stay more than 2 hours on me. Moreover, it is pretty hard to keep the pigment off my teeth. No matter how much I try, I have lipstick on my teeth.

What I liked about :-
  • A stunning color of red that would suit everyone.
  • Soft, buttery texture.
  • Glides easily.
  • Moisturizing.
  • Feels light on lips.
  • Well pigmented.
  • Minimal bleeding.
  • Stunning packaging.

What I don’t like about about:-
  • Pricey.
  • Not easily available.
  • Too glossy for my comfort zone.
  • Needs constant reapplying.
  • The bullet is so soft, it melts in summers.
  • Accentuates fine lines and dry patches.

Final Thoughts:-
This is a fantastic, moisturizing red lipstick. It glides easily, has minimal bleeding and is insanely pigmented. But I personally prefer something with a matte, semi-matte finish; especially when it is a red lipstick. The shine this lipstick provides is way beyond my comfort zone. Moreover, it starts fading within 2 hours accentuating fine lines and dry flakes (if any). When we are spending such a bomb on a lipstick, we would at least expect it to have a decent staying power. I feel this range isn’t for me.

Final Rating:-

Have you tried any from this range? Do you also feel the same? Let us know J
