Immediately after seeing Estée Lauder’s lipstick collaboration with Kendall Jenner, I knew I had to get my hands on it. And, after seeing it pop up in countless YouTube videos, I finally decided to take the plunge and order one. It is limited edition, and I really didn’t want to miss out the way I did with MAC’s Giambatista Valli collection.
I was worried it was going to be a bit too similar to my MAC ‘Lady Danger’ but it really is quite different. ‘Restless’ is such a gorgeous red with orange undertones and a matte finish. It’s redder than ‘Lady Danger’ which I was quite pleased with. This formula is also quite hydrating which is rare in a matte finish as I find them to be quite drying.
It feels quite thick when you’re applying it but more lightweight once it’s on than some of my other matte lipsticks. It doesn’t feel like it’s drying my lips out while I wear it which is so nice and it is quite long lasting, especially for such a bold colour. I would definitely recommend using a lip liner before applying this lipstick though and it reduces the risk of bleeding or feathering, which can happen with this one. I just used a Sephora Collection lip liner it worked quite well at keeping my lipstick in tact.
I’m glad this arrived in time before the end of summer as I feel it makes the perfect summer shade. It’s quite vibrant and really compliments bronzed skin. Though, because this is my current favourite I will definitely be trying to incorporate it into my fall and winter looks as well.
Have you guys tried the Kendall Jenner lipstick yet? What do you think of it?
