How gorgeous and summery is this lemon yellow tube of sunshine? I was a little unsure when I saw how bright it was - would I end up with custard-stained lips (actually that sounds like something I would enjoy very much).
But nope, it's a pretty sheer shade, with a hint of gold and shimmery glitter. It's very wearable over a stronger lipstick or solo.
The gold shimmer effect is very pretty, although subtle. My photos didn't quite capture how it illuminated my lips. I don't own any other lip glosses from Estee Lauder, so didn't realise that they are scented. And ZOMG I love the smell of this one, it's like lemon cordial with an apricot jam glaze. So delicious!
Overall it's a practical shade that I will definitely use for a nude day lip and to add impact to darker lips.
Estee Lauder Pure Color Gloss Citron Kiss is a limited edition so be speedy. It's A$42 from EL counters, probably cheaper online from a US retailer.
