I love the name of this Estee Lauder Lipstick — Defiant Coral.
Like it hangs out with a bunch of ruffians in front a 7-11 past curfew or, I dunno, stands up in the middle of a boring staff meeting and yells, “KISS THIS!” to the boss on its way out the door.
LOL! Oh, Defiant Coral, you rebel, you.
Defiant Coral is one of the new Sculpting Lipsticks in Estee Lauder’s permanent line, which are called “sculpting” because the multi-faceted pigments in each of the 21 high-intensity statement shades is supposed to make lips look more defined, shaped and curved.
- Full coverage with 6-hour wear time
- Time-release moisture complex helps capture and seal in moisture
- Lips feel continuously moisturized throughout the day
They sound pretty expensive for Estee Lauder at $30 a pop, but they remind me of Guerlain’s pricier $51 Le Rouge Gs in terms of how they feel, look and perform.
I mean, I don’t think the packaging is as sexy as the silver bulleted Rouge Gs — although the navy and gold is elegant in its own way — but Defiant Coral’s smooth creaminess, rich hydration, opaque coverage and 5-6 hour wear time is like something out of the Rouge G line.
