We Recreated Kendall Jenner’s Sold-Out Lip Shade With These Two Products
You're probably not surprised to learn that when Kendall Jenner launched a limited edition lip colour with Estée Lauder in June of this year, it disappeared in 3 days. (That's almost as fast as you can say "add to cart".) The orange-spiked red, called Restless, was vibrant, flattering and had Jenner's tick of approval. Plus, her signature etched on the bullet. In short, it was always going to be a winner. While it's not extraordinary that it didn't last long (on the contrary), what is remarkable is that four months later consumers are still trying to get their hands on it. According to Estée Lauder's Communications Manager, there have been over 200 requests for Kendall's shade via both social media and Estée Lauder's Customer Service hotline since it sold out. Demand is so huge, staff have had to come up with a way to get the look another way. Intrigued?

In place of Jenner's sold-out shade, Estée Lauder's counter staff are currently recommending a cocktail of the brand's lipsticks to recreate it. Apply Pure Color Envy Matte Sculpting Lipstick ($52) in Volatile, a punchy tangerine red, as your base shade. Next, paint Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick ($52) in Impassioned over the top to add dimension and sheen. If you can't do without lip liner, you'll be pointed towards Double Wear Stay-in-Place Lip Pencil ($38) in Clear to keep colour in place and vibrant. The custom lip shade has proven a hit in store with countless women snapping up two (or three, including liner) products to dupe Jenner's hue. Turns out it's not just sister Kylie who has strong lip game. Let's hope there's another Kendall-approved shade in the works.
