Estée Lauder has a few cult products that are loved the world over.

Their Double Wear foundation appears in pretty much every high-end makeup bag for its ability to somehow create an airbrushed complexion that matches each owner’s individual skin colour.

And theAdvanced Night Repair serum has become a favourite for anyone wanting to take a few years off with some well-chosen skincare staples.

And of course, no summer is complete without their Bronze Goddess scent. The iconic bergamot, amber and coconut scent that is only available for a select through months of the year, is a huge customer favourite.

But now there’s a new offering that might just surpass them all.

The brand is releasing a new colour collection for lips – and it’s set to fly off the shelves.

The new Pure Color Envy Rebellious Rose Collection is centred around the brand’s bestselling lipstick colour – Rebellious Rose.

The neutral rose shade, which has already been available in crème form as part of their Sculpting Lipstick collection, has made it to number one globally for its bright red meets dark nude colour.

Out of ten countries surveyed by the brand, this flattering rose shade topped the charts in nine, coming in at number three in only one country – South Africa.

And now fans of the colour will be able to get hold of it in TWO more, different finishes.

If you prefer an intense matte coverage to a creamy lipstick, the colour will be available in the form of Pure Color Envy Paint-On Liquid LipColor Matte.

Or for those who lean towards a more glossy finish, the non-sticky Pure Color Envy Kissable Lip Shine will do the job.

And best of all, each of the three offerings in infused with the range’s signature Hyaluronic Acid and Advanced Moisture Complex, so whether you’re saturated in matte or drenched in gloss, your lips will stay hydrated.

No flakiness here!

‘This shade basically suits all skin tones, warm or cool,’ Estée Lauder pro make-up artist Milan Burge told woman&home.

‘It’s so popular because it’s so versatile. It’s a bold shade, but when the lipstick fades you’re left with a lovely tint effect that will last all night.’

Get hold of the whole collection at Estée Lauder counter's and on the brand's website from 2nd September.

She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a fun Rioja and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.


Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).

But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.

When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
