Now thats a lot of details . aint it?
As you all know these brands are not that easily available here but thanks to ebco they were selling some makeup bag in which they included these full sized lipstick as samples so it was a good chance for me to grab some for myself .
Now I am not sure what the original packaging exactly looks like , on the estee lauder site its kind of a fancy glass and gold packaging while some pictures on google and ofcourse the ones i have show that its just a plain blue plastic packaging. These lip sticks are rich and creamy texture wise and pretty moisturizing which is why i am liking them. They last for about a good 3.5-4 hours on the lips which is amazing. They do fade evenly and dont go around smearing all over the face, I wont say that they are very very much but decently pigmented which is in a way good because "nectarine" is not the right shade for being overly pigmented but I do wish "Rose de Boir" could be a bit more pigmented. I noticed that different shades smell all different according to their names or it could be just me but Nectarine smells like a fruit punch while Rose De Boir has a more sort of flowery scent , but the scents are just too harsh which bothers me. These lipstick give a medium semi opaque coverage but are buildable and are not matte at all but has a very glossy sheen to it , looks like your'e wearing a gloss and does not feel too heavy on the lips but still due to a very strong smell it makes it hard to breathe which makes it an annoying lip product...Now here comes my favourite part, This is really weird but i like the feeling and look of it , it layer these lipsticks with makeup forever HD mattifying translucent powder which locks the lip color and makes it totally matte (yes i can find a matte lipstick but i said i like the feeling and look) I also do it because it accentuates the lip lines and makes my lips look more original (its weird how glossy stuff does not make my lips pouty and sort of stretches them sideways) Also after using the translucent powder it would never ever fade and my hair wont be sticking to my lips and creating colored stripes all over my face. These lipsticks are really really pricey, not worth splurging on a lipsticks.

You can buy the bag at Ebco or Naheed super market for 2300 rupees in which you get these as samples and are available for 25 dollars at estee lauder website. Oh and never go on the colors on the website , they are all so different , i suggest if you like a shade first search for pictures of the right color on google first
