Beautiful color, terrific item
Date:January 13, 2011
I purchased the "Summer Melon" Gloss Stick and adore it. I have been looking for a color similar to a discontinued lipstick from a different product line I was using. This is the most comparable color I found and when applied over a pinkish lipstick I wear, the combo is primo! I'm super happy and highly recommend.
EL REALLY needs to remove the strong, extremely unpleasant fragrance/taste from all it's lip products (and skin care products, too.) It's so old-fashioned and really cheapens their image - yucky! The texture of this product is great which makes it even more disapoointing. The scent and flavor interfered with the taste of my food and drink and is just obnoxiously strong. It did not feel soothing and actually burned a bit when applied to my dry lips - probably from the fragrance. EL has rather advanced formulas compared to other brands and should know better than to load their products up with irritating and unnecessary fragrance like this. Also, I ordered Nude Almond which turned out to be a light orange-y, camel, tan. It is not pink in the least, so ignore the color descriptions and don't trust your monitor. Not sure who this color would look good on! I'll stick with the unscented lipsticks from another EL brand which also happen to come in nice, wearable colors...
I got this in Summer Melon and in the tube it is a strong tangerine color, but on the lips it is the most beautiful color of melon-pink ever. I love the way this feels on my lips and the case is perfect for jeans, no worries of it opening up or rotating. I do want more colors. To me this is the perfect mix of a lipstick and gloss, plus it makes my lips feel plump for some reason. Not sure why, but it works.
I have trouble with lipsticks because I am picky about colors, coverage, and shine. I was thrilled when my Deep Lilac gloss stick arrived--the color is perfect! Then I opened the tube and found the scent rather annoying, but I figured I could get used to it. I love the way this gloss looks and feels...but that overwhelming fragrance is a complete deal-breaker. I've tried to get past it and just can't.
My 3-star rating relates strictly to that cloying grape-Kool-Aid-ish scent. Otherwise, I'd highly recommend this product.
I have what might seem like a strange complaint about this otherwise wonderful lipstick; it has a strange smell to it that makes me actually dread applying it. I think that something should be done either to remove the smell or to add some type of soft, pleasant fragrance. I continue to use it because it goes so nicely with their lip pencil; however, every time I apply it, I just shake my head in amazement that a lipstick could have such a disagreeable odor. Seems like a small and easy thing to fix for such an otherwise great lipstick!
II was looking for a sheer lipstick with shine. The description fit exactly what I had in mind so I purchased two different shades. I was disappointed. The color is very intense, especially when first applied. I did experience some bleeding into lines around the mouth. While I did like the shine, the lipstick did "NOT" feel very hydrating. I ended up returning Pomagranate Kiss (way too dark) and keeping Berry Pink which I felt I could live with and would wear. (I was too embarassed to return them both). I will not purchase again.

I love that my lips feel hydrated while I get a beautiful shine and color from this gloss stick! I got the Rose Dusk color and its simply gorgeous. At the recommendation of one of the color specialists, I also got the Double Wear Lip Duo in "made you blush" which is a great base and I put the gloss stick on top. The gloss stick does come off easily when I drink or eat so I still have color on thanks to the Lip Duo until I remember to reapply the gloss stick.
I love the pure color gloss sticks and have about 4 or 5 of them! They go on so smoothly and last a fairly long time. I really like that they are "in between" a gloss and a lipstick, a perfect marriage of the two. My only wish would be that it had an SPF in it, then it would be perfect!
I like this Pure Color Gloss stick the best out of all the E. Lauder line of lipsticks! It has great moisture and glossiness when you put it on, as well as great color! I have quite a few of the colors and find them to be very wearable and not garish. The only reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5 is because it tends to need to be reapplied more often if you rub your lips together like I do. Or, if you drink any beverage, it comes off.

I own two of these, in the Honey Pink and the Berry Pink. I'm more of a gloss girl rather than a lipstick girl (I do wear lipstick on special occaions) and this works great as a 'Happy Medium' between the two worlds. This gloss gives more color such as in a lipstick, and you get the shine and hydration that comes with a gloss. A perfect combination!
Exactly as the title says-- The color is good (it is not that "pop" or intense as it looks but closer to soft reddish pick: you can wear it for a everyday use), and it smells nice (comparing to Pure Color Crystal). And it is slimmer than other Estee Lauder lipsticks, so good for on-the-go. But it is not as glossy or moisturizing as its name promises: not so different than PCC, if not less.
I love this gloss and have re-bought colors I use up....but the colors are tricky. Wild plum which sounds like it is dark is actually pale on my lips. i love it, but get a sample in the store before you buy online

If you're looking for the best blend of a lip gloss and stick this is the one. Real color and moisture without that oilslick feeling you get from some glosses. I have fair skin, blue eyes and auburn hair. My favorite summer color is Orange Poppy, which has a hint of brownish pink that is lovely on. In winter I often wear Honey Pink, which is more suttle.
I have enjoyed the estee lauder gloss sticks, they have a very light feel and provide color and shine all in one. This has been a welcome change to using lipstick and then a gloss which can feel sticky and messy. I feel this product is a better choice for a more mature set of lips in that the lines around the mouth dont seem as pronounced.
I've always wanted that lipstick to wear all the time that looks great with all of my clothing and is comfortable to wear. This is definitely it, the Berry Pink is absolutely perfect for me and it goes on so smooth. It doesn't make my lips feel like they sometimes do when I wear lipstick either.

This is a cross between lipstick and gloss that comes in an attractive and sturdy metal and plastic case. It deposits more color than gloss, but it doesn't have a heavy feel of pigment on the lips. It lasts longer than gloss usually does.
I love the colors (especially the almond and wild plum); however, I've found the bullets to get "mushy" after a few weeks, and then they're extremely messy to use. Too bad, I thought I'd finally found the solution I've been looking for.
I ordered this gloss in Pomegranate Kiss, its a stunning shade and this stick gloss is so much more convenient to use that others. It also seems to have more staying power. It's not lipstick, but it holds its own and can make a lipstick really take on special depths.
