Truly a ‘high gloss’ from Estee Lauder in the shade of Honey

The Estee Lauder Honey High Gloss is light honey/very light copper shade with lots of gold shimmers. Mine comes in that “Not for sale” size.

The lip gloss has lots and lots and lots of gold shimmers as mentioned, but they’re not gritty and it doesn’t get messy especially when the lip gloss is gone. Those shimmers actually intensify the gloss to a pretty finish.

Swatches show color. This is actually sheer, but buildable to a really pale honey/copper if you want pale lips with shimmers. 😀 Longevity is quite good. I could still feel the gloss even after a moderate meal. Tackiness is no issue even.

I like the shine, that it gives me plump-looking lips, and doesn’t suck the moisture of my lips.

What I truly love about this is its caramel candy scent which I think matches the shade. 🙂 I love this by itself and on top of Revlon Colorburst Matte Lip Balm in Striking Spectaculaire. I have yet to try this on other matte shades, but I’ve red only so far. 😛 If I could afford it (well, there are so many other lip glosses I want to try), I wouldn’t hesitate to try other High Gloss shades.
