Kendall Jenner Lipstick

E!

From the moment we saw Kendall Jenner's kissy face selfie on Instagram we were curious about her lip color (hey, it's our job to track down these things). Come to find out a day later that it was the E! star's very own custom shade "Restless" for Estée Lauder—and the obsession became full-blown.

We just had to get our hands pouts on this poppy orange tint, which would most definitely be the hottest hue of the summer.

But just because something is popular doesn't mean you can pull it off. (See: Culottes.) So we decided to do an office-wide testing of the model's signature shade to see just how versatile it really is. The (filter-free) results? Keep scrolling!

"The tint may be described as 'orangey-red' but once applied I quickly realized it is straight up neon orange. (No, really, you can't tell from this photo but I promise it's hella bright.) Which—while shocking at first—actually makes for a pretty pop of color that's perfect for summertime."—Cinya Burton

"The color looks a lot more intimidating in the tube than it reads in person (and on camera). That aside, you better have bright white teeth to wear this because it's going to dull whatever shade you have. Drinking coffee before applying this probably wasn't the best idea."—Gina Serpe

"It's not a color I would see and then purchase: I usually stick to hot pink, red or a light nude gloss, so I have never really ventured into wearing orange lipstick. It was fun to try, and after wearing it, I totally want it. Especially for a summer beach day or to wear with a pop of turquoise. My one wish is that it was a little creamier. Since the color is so bright, you really need full coverage, and it can look dried out if you go too long without reapplying."—Lindsey Caldwell

"I'm honestly surprised how much I like this color on my skin tone: It's a lot bolder than I expected but it's such a bright, pretty look for summer. Applying it was tricky (it's verrrry chalky and took a couple of layers to smooth out), but it's not budging or smudging at all, so I'm here for it."—Nicole Pirshafiey

"Not a fan. It doesn't exactly go on smoothly, and it's very matte. However, the color is really pretty and it seems to last forever. After eating lunch and drinking a cup of coffee, it still looks as bright as ever."—Rosemary Brennan

"While generally never a fan of a bold lip (I choose to play it safe with a light pink or peach), I'm secretly obsessed with the SMSM (social media super model) clique, so in Kendall, I trusted. And  was surprised by the results! I actually liked the orange color, though it dried up rather quickly. I think my fresh-from-Mexico tan (Yes, be jealous!) and bright-colored dressed helped, too."—Tierney Bricker

"I'm a fan of the vibrant color because it adds a pop to my look. It's pretty light, so I forget I'm wearing it which might become troublesome when I eat and get it all over the place, but hey, #girlproblems"—Bruna Nessif

"It's a little bright, but super fun! I feel like I'm on vacation just by having it on. The consistency is kind of chalky though, so be sure to moisturize lips before applying. Otherwise, it's perfect color for summer! #WouldBuy"—Dion Myles

"For this pic, I tried (and failed) to channel Kylie Jenner's famous pout #noshame. The lipstick formula was a little too dry, but the color was far more flattering than I expected. I wouldn't call it a universal shade, but it does work on a variety of different skin tones."—Alyssa Toomey

"I'm not one for a bright lip, in fact I'm pretty sure I only own three clear glosses and maybe one taupe. But if I was going to go bold, Kendall's "Restless" is a good way to do it. The color is a fun pop of orange (not red, important note!) that goes on entirely matte. I wore it with a plain black t-shirt, and I will say that it totally transformed my look. I received a ton of compliments and I was just walking around the office, so I would like to be able to dress this color up for a night out. Moral of the story: It's a lipstick so good that it inspires me to try to up my selfie game."—Jenna Loomer

"I'm a lipstick junkie, so I have a pretty robust criteria to follow when evaluating a new shade. While I like the apricot tones of Kendall's 'Restless' red-orange, the finish was a tad, well, too matte—to the point where I had to swipe Vaseline over my lips to get the right texture."—Nicole Adlman
