Let's start with the name. Restless is a perfect word to describe Kendall and her career. She's a 19 year old girl who's been working tirelessly to brand herself outside of the Kardashian clan and she has succeed. She is determined and restless when it comes to getting her way.
Packaging is pure luxury. From it's gorgeous matte finish (little finger print prone) to a beautiful Navy colour that we come to love with Estee Lauder, it is a an incredible addition to any fashionista's makeup bag. I love magnetic lid which only adds to the luxury of this piece. There's no denying it, it's gorgeous. Combine that with gold top with Kendall's signature in red and you have gotten yourself an accessory that every girl will lust after.
Price range may not be for everyone. Estee Lauder is a high end brand and this is a limited edition lipstick. It's £25 and in line with lip colour prices of other high end products.
Formula is matte. In MAC terms it's a retro matte finish yet it applies beautifully. The way it's sculpted you can draw your perfect red lip in no time. Gorgeous doesn't cover it. Finish on the lips is spectacular. True matte red lips are not only very wearable but also a definition of style. As with any matte lipstick it can be quite drying after few hours wear.
It's a very long lasting lipstick. I had it on for 8 hours and the pigment was still there. I'd say it will wear perfectly for 6 hours unless you eat. They it'll slowly disappear but no nastiness here as it goes away only slightly. I gave it a proper test and you can see from the pictures how beautifully it wears throughout the day.

Colour may not be for everyone this is an orange red so it'll not look too great with less than white teeth. When it comes to a skin tone I am always aware of orange lips on me as I don't think it suits me, yet with this one, it was love on a first sight. It looks lovely on my paler than pale complexion with pink undertones. This is what Estee Lauder has to say about it:
"Part poppy. Part orange crush. All matte. All Kendall.
High-impact colour that shapes your lips. Smooths and hydrates."
I may not agree with hydrating comment but the rest is all true.As with any matte colour I would strongly suggest prepping your lips before wear. Little scrub and moisturiser will do great. In return you will find yourself in the centre of attention as everyone will be asking what you're wearing.
I'm a big fan of neon shades for the day. I would wear it to the office as well as on the night out. It's a very versatile shade for me, but that's just my opinion. I'm not afraid of a bright lip for the daytime, that's all.
It has gained 4.9 out of 5* on the Estee Lauder website with raving reviews complementing both colour and packaging. So if you are the one up for that bold, matte lip then Kendall Jenner lipstick is the one for you.
It's available online only, exclusively to Estee Lauder website and you can buy it here.
