When it comes to luxury, opulence, and most of all- extravagance, there is no better time to indulge in that magical trifecta than the holiday season. Channeling that classic holiday color scheme of rich golds and crimson, the Estee Lauder Extravagant Holiday Collection is a special treat. Let’s take a closer look, shall we?
Extravagant Red isn’t a true red, but more of a medium pinky red. The shade is very wearable as far as reds go, and I would imagine it to be universal. The formulation is rich, creamy, and incredibly comfortable to wear.
One of the things that makes the lipsticks of this collection so special (in my opinion, of course), is the fact that the bases are dipped in glitter. Now that doesn’t mean the lipsticks themselves are glittery, just the exterior of the base. I do rather feel that it adds a rather nice touch to the packaging for the holiday season.
Extravagant Berry is a rich raspberry shade, providing a color punch without being too dark, or too vampy. Like Extravagant Red, this lipstick’s base is dipped in glitter.

Extravagant Plum is a plush, cushiony shade of medium plum, which actually swatches slightly berry on the lips. Present throughout are flecks of pink, blue, gold, and red glitter particles.
Can I take just a moment to declare my love for the scent and flavor of Estee Lauder’s lip products. I am almost ashamed of the fact that it has taken me this long to try them, because they smell and taste amazing. The mixture is something between juicy raspberry and rich chocolate. If you love scented lip products as much as I do, then this will be a genuine treat for you.

Extravagant Gold is a quint decked out in classic shades of the season. With shades of beige, copper, and brown, you have the perfect accompaniment to the more dramatic lip looks of the season. The shadows themselves are creamy, pigmented, and apply like a dream.
Krasey Rating: Solid shadows with a decidedly luxe feel B+
