Estee Lauder Pure Color DESIRE ROUGE EXCESS LIPSTICKS Review, Swatches

For me, the biggest problem with the Estee Lauder Pure Color Desire Rouge Excess Lipsticks is that name. WHY Pure Color? Why not start a whole new range instead of adding length - and confusing - to a handle?
I'll explain.
First, we had the Estee Lauder Pure Color lipsticks. Then came the Pure Color ENVY Sculpting lipsticks (reviewed here) - regular first, followed by a matte range. Then, we had the Pure Color LOVE Lipsticks (reviewed here). Liquid lipsticks followed (all reviewed here) - Pure Color Love Liquid lip colours, and Pure Color PAINT-ON Liquid Lipsticks. ARGH! Stop already! Can't they remove the "Pure Color" suffix at least now? Why is it on every darn lipstick launch ever? Surely Estee Lauder Desire Rouge Excess is enough without tacking on Pure Color in there?
Enough ranting about the name. Let's talk about the lipsticks themselves. These come in stunning packaging, possibly the best we've seen from Estee Lauder. Very heavy metal. All gold. Satisfying click. Incidentally, these are the lipsticks that are supposed to have the highest percentage of pigment in any Estee Lauder lipstick so far.

Swatches of the Pure Color LOVE Lipsticks (yes, I'm a lot less monotonous these days):



The Estee Lauder Pure Colour Desire Rouge Excess Lipsticks (I'M SO TIRED OF TYPING THAT OUT. Call 'em Desire Excess already) are £34 or $36.80 each (Don't look at ME - I don't decide these bizarre exchange rates), and come in two finishes - cream and chrome, with more shades in the former finish. Check out swatches above - I also have the shade Sweeten, which is deeper than Sting (Say Yes is paler than Sting, and will therefore make me look a fright), but it arrived a couple of days after I recorded the above video, and was out of stock earlier.
You can buy them here (worldwide delivery available), here (worldwide delivery), or here (US/WW). If you are in the UK, buy them here.
