THE VERDICT:

If MAC's Rebel lipstick had a sophisticated counterpart, it would be Estēe Lauder's Pure Color Vivid Shine Lipstick in Mirrored Orchid. Rebel is trendy and sexy, and I wear it to events, meetings, and on casual days while on more formal occasions, I wear this. Its metallic finish and subtle sparkles make it a perfect holiday lip color too!

ESTĒE LAUDER PURE COLOR VIVID SHINE LIPSTICK IN MIRRORED ORCHID IN DETAIL

This lipstick is part of Estēe Lauder's The Metallics Liquid Lacquer and Vivid Shine Lipstick collection for Fall 2013. Finish is light and shiny, but never short on pigmentation. It contains metal gold and silver sparkles that amplify lips and provide a metallic finish.

Quality is pretty similar to Pure Color lipstick, except that this one has a lighter feel.

More about this Christmas lipstick of mine after the break!

Mirrored Orchid is a deep orchid color with a hint of grape-it's a prelude shade to 2014's official color. Coverage is medium to full, finish is metallic with a hint of shine. It's more hydrating (read: watery) than creamy and despite its moist formulation, it applies very evenly and doesn't slide around.

ESTĒE LAUDER PURE COLOR VIVID SHINE LIPSTICK IN MIRRORED ORCHID IN ACTION

I'm not the biggest fan of metallics, but I'll make an exception for this! The metal finish I get from this lipstick is very flattering, never tacky and over-the-top. And for a moist lipstick, it does stay on incredibly long, around 3 hours if untouched. Nope, it doesn't dry out my lips nor highlight dry areas. Mirrored Orchid suits medium to dark skin tones really well, and surprisingly looks decent and 'true' on fair skin tones too. I only have two lipsticks from Estēe Lauder's Pure Color range and I'm loving them to bits! I'll surely wear this color on Christmas eve! :)
