Saffron Sun

Estee Lauder x Victoria Beckham Saffron Sun Bronzer ($65.00 for 0.42 oz.) is light-medium, golden brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich, opaque pigmentation that was easy to work with.

It’s a new shade in the Victoria Beckham collaboration (which was partially brought back recently). It’s lighter and more golden-toned compared to Java Sun from the initial release, but it performed similarly. The consistency was smooth, finely-milled, and silky without being so soft that it turned dusty or powdery in the pan. The powder applied evenly to bare skin, blended out easily, and was soft enough that it could be used with a lighter hand for sheerer coverage as well. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading.

Round-up: Estee Lauder Hi-Lustre Pure Color Envy Lipsticks (2017)

Estee Lauder Hi-Lustre Pure Color Envy Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.10 oz.) recently extended their range with many new shades, and here’s a look at how well they did… I think this formula is best for someone who likes medium to semi-opaque coverage lip color with moderate shine and some pearl. I’m a fan of it myself, as they’re easy to wear on their own and are very comfortable/hydrating. They are slightly more coverage than described, which is why the ratings can be a little lower than you might expect!

Lava

Estee Lauder Lava Hi-Lustre Light Sculpting Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is bright, medium-dark fuchsia red with subtle, cooler undertones and a creamy, lightly glossy finish. It almost looked like a “warm” fuchsia as it had so much red in it. The consistency was smooth, lightweight, creamy but not slippery, and comfortable to wear. It had nearly opaque pigmentation, though, which was a lot more than described, but some might prefer it that way. There was a bit of color that pulled into my lip lines, though it wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance. This shade wore nicely for six hours, left a stain behind, and was moisturizing.

The formula is supposed to have medium coverage with a lustrous finish. It takes the Pure Color Envy formula and adds shimmer to it with the end result varying from lightly pearlized to more frosted and near-metallic. The shimmer was finer in size, so the lipsticks did not feel gritty on the lips, and the particles didn’t migrate as the lipstick wears down. The coverage was more semi-opaque to opaque, though a lighter hand could achieve medium coverage. It was lightly creamy with some slip that became more noticeable as the formula warmed up against the lips. The wear ranged from four to six hours and was typically hydrating. The formula featured a vanilla scent but had no discernible taste.

It had semi-opaque color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly across the lips. It had a thinner, clingier feel on the lips, though it was never uncomfortable nor was it drying (it was lightly hydrating, actually!). The color wore well for just over four and a half hours on me.

Estee Lauder Tiger Eye On Hi-Lustre Light Sculpting Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is medium-dark copper with strong, warm orange undertones and a frosted shimmer-sheen finish. It had medium to semi-opaque, buildable color payoff that went on fairly evenly. The consistency was smooth, lightly emollient, and comfortable to apply, though I could feel the texture of the shimmer slightly after a couple hours of wear (never felt rough or scratchy, just that yes, there was shimmer on my lips). It wore well for four and a half hours and was moisturizing.
