  • I think this shade of gloss (Honey) was put in the gift, because the intention was that it should be paired up with the lipstick that was also put in the gift
  • I am just a little disappointed that this Estee Lauder gloss in Honey doesn't have any pigmentation to it once I put it on
  • I don't like this method of application very much, because I might accidentally squeeze too much gloss out of the tip, and then I end up with too much gloss on my lips
  • I have noticed that some of the high-end companies (Lancome, Bobbi Brown, and Estee Lauder) have been using this method for their least expensive glosses
  • I would recommend that you check out the shades of this High Gloss at the Estee Lauder counter to see if you can find a stronger color that will show up on your lips

      I got this mini tube of Estee Lauder lip gloss as part of a bonus that came with a purchase. I believe it was at Nordstrom. I think this shade of gloss (Honey) was put in the gift, because the intention was that it should be paired up with the lipstick that was also put in the gift. That lipstick was called Sugar Honey. The gloss and lipstick look similar. When you look at the gloss through the plastic tube, it looks like a shimmery caffe-latte color (high on the latte).

      But that is rather deceiving, because after I apply it to my lips, it looks clear. It does have a nice strong shine, so I am glad about that. And it has a smooth, slick feeling on my lips. It only


      costs $16, which is reasonable for department-store cosmetics, especially considering that Estee Lauder is a well-established company that has been around for many years. The quality of the shine here is almost as good as Bobbi Brown’s Crystal Lip Gloss, which is $17. I am just a little disappointed that this Estee Lauder gloss in Honey doesn’t have any pigmentation to it once I put it on. Or at least I don’t see any. If you are being cheated out of color, then shouldn’t it just be called clear gloss? Also, I don’t notice any shimmer on my lips, whereas the gloss looks shimmery in the tube. So I guess I really should wear it over the Sugar Honey lipstick and see how it enhances the lipstick.

      My other complaint is that ...


      • this lip gloss comes in one of those plastic tubes that has an angular tip, which is where you apply the lip gloss to your lips. You have to squeeze the tube gently in order to get the color to come out through the angular tip. I don’t like this method of application very much, because I might accidentally squeeze too much gloss out of the tip, and then I end up with too much gloss on my lips. I have noticed that some of the high-end companies (Lancome, Bobbi Brown, and Estee Lauder) have been using this method for their least expensive glosses. The more expensive glosses come in a wand-like tube with an applicator that you use to brush the gloss on your lips. I like that method better,
        because there is less chance that you will accidentally overload your lips with gloss. I guess the plastic tube with the angular tip is cheaper to manufacture, and that’s why the make-up companies charge less for that gloss. I’m not sure.

        But I would recommend this Estee Lauder High Gloss for the shine. I wouldn’t recommend it in the Honey shade, because I don’t see any color on my lips once I put the gloss on, so I can’t enjoy wearing it as a colored gloss. I would recommend that you check out the shades of this High Gloss at the Estee Lauder counter to see if you can find a stronger color that will show up on your lips. If you can, then I think you will enjoy this lip gloss.
