As an overly obsessed beauty lover (or hoarder depending on how you look at it), there’s nothing like a new lipstick. Having a bad day? Why not treat yourself to a new lipstick? Today I want to show you one of my new favourites: Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Lipstick. This line of lipsticks was launched at the beginning of January in Canada, but I only just had the opportunity to try one out. The Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Lipstick collection promises to offer a sheerer, high-shine finish that sculpts, hydrates and illuminates your lips.
Packaging: Inspired by modern architecture, the new slim-line packaging design for Estée Lauder offers a one-click magnetic closing of the casing in Estée Lauder’s iconic blue and gold.
Sculpting Power: The top of the lipstick is less pre-sculpted than other lipsticks I use, and I have to admit, I was a little worried about how accurately I would be able to apply the lipstick, as I like to be able to put it on as is, without the need for a lip brush. Despite my fear, the promise to “help sculpt perfectly shaped and uniform lips”, proved 100% accurate. In last photo (at the end of this post), I’m not even wearing lipliner and I was still able to achieve a clean line.
Coverage: Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Lipstick in Passionate (above) does give a sheer, shimmery and hydrated coverage. Shown above with just one swipe of the lipstick.
In the photo above, I layered the lipstick for a more intense coverage than the swatch shown on my hand.I love how the slight shimmer shines through, yet does not overpower the lips at all.
Hydration: With new technology (a time release encapsulated moisture complex with micronized hyaluronic spheres), the lips are able to attract, capture and seal-in hydration, making the lips feel much softer and smoother throughout the day.
Wear Time: The lipstick stayed on from 7am to after lunch (with a couple of coffees in between). There was no staining or unsightly wear-off either, which is a major plus when looking for a lipstick. When lipsticks wear off unevenly, I feel self-conscious and uncomfortable so this is always the most important factor for me when testing new lipsticks.
Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Lipsticks are available in 16 shades and retail for $34 CAD/$30 USD.
If you are looking to treat yourself to a new lipstick that offers pure timeless luxury, than Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy lipsticks are definitely for you. I can’t wait to try another shade!
Until next time,
