Many lip products pass through my doors claiming to be lightweight and to make lips feels soft and smooth. But I can tell you that it’s all boxes – and more – ticked with the Estee Lauder Liquid Lip Potion. They’ve slapped in avocado oil, jojoba oil and sunflower oil with hyaluronic acid. They call it the Time Release Encapsulated Moisture Complex, but whatever. It’s very, very good.
The wand is curved so it hugs the lip and the effect is a smoother, satin finish lip that feels virtually bare. Claims that it has the slip of a gloss and the pigment of a lipstick are true. Claims that Estee Lauder Liquid Lip Potion lasts up to 8 hours are hopeful, but it certainly has longer last than any gloss. They’re fragranced with redcurrant, mandarin and apple blossom but to be honest, predominantly smell of vanilla, so don’t be swayed by that!
Shades I have here are: Fragile Ego, Extreme Nude, Cold Fire and Naked Ambition.
In terms of new lip experiences, Estee Lauder Liquid Lip Potion is as good as it gets for the genre. Mind you, at £25, so it should be – I am noticing Lauder pushing their prices up and up. These launch at the beginning of August and bridge the matte/gloss gap beautifully.
