Round-up: Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Shine Lipstick Overview & Thoughts

Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Shine Lipstick


Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Shine Lipstick
($30.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a hydrating, luminous formula that has semi-sheer to semi-opaque coverage from the ten shades I tested. The full range includes sixteen shades, so if none of these have caught your eye but you like the idea of the formula, perhaps one of the remaining six may be more up your alley. They have longer-wear, as they have a slight tackiness that helps keep them wearing longer, despite having a very hydrating, emollient, and glossy formula. My personal favorites were Blossom Bright (A) and Surreal Sun (A-).

Round-up: Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick Overview & Thoughts

Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a pigmented, long-wearing, and hydrating formula that’s great if you like your color creamy and mostly opaque with a natural finish. You know you have a good formula on your hands when the average rating is an A across over thirty shades. If I had to pick a few for favorites, I would say: Defiant Coral (A), Discreet (A), Dynamic (A), Intense Nude (A), Irresistible (A), Jealous (A), and Reckless (A).

Estee Lauder Desirable & Confident Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipsticks

Estee Lauder Desirable (120) Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, light-medium pinky with a creamy, natural finish and neutral-to-warm undertones. It had mostly opaque pigmentation that covered the lips evenly, but the slightly thickened formula pulled into lip lines. The effect worsened slightly as it wore on for the next five hours. The formula was hydrating. Estee Lauder Mischievous Rose (P, $30.00) is glossier. MAC Boca (LE, $16.00) is more matte. Tom Ford Beauty Addison (LE, $32.00) is similar. Bobbi Brown Pink Kiss (P, $26.00) is pinker. Bobbi Brown Blush (P, $26.00) is warmer. NARS Anita (P, $32.00) is pinker. Guerlain Rosy Boop (369) (P, $37.00) is darker, pinker. MAC Dream Daze (LE, $22.00) is similar. Givenchy Nude Guipure (106) (P, $36.00) is pinker, glossier. Estee Lauder Impulsive (P, $30.00) is pinker. YSL Nude Beige (1) (P, $34.00) is lighter, glossier. Tom Ford Beauty Pink Dusk (P, $50.00) is similar. Guerlain Gabrielle (P, $51.00) is glossier, lighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Estee Lauder Passionate, Pink Dragon, Surreal Sun Pure Color Envy Shine Lipsticks

Here are the last three shades I bought from the Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Shine Sculpting Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.10 oz.) range, which is supposed to be a medium coverage, hydrating lipstick with a “luminous shine.” They have semi-opaque to mostly opaque coverage with a luminous finish. Some shades have a faint pearl shimmer, but the shimmer is hard to detect when worn (I wouldn’t describe them as shimmery, for example). The wear time ranges from four to six hours, and the formula is hydrating while worn. The texture is more balm-like with some tackiness, but it’s comfortable to wear. I couldn’t detect any scent or taste from the formula.

Estee Lauder Blossom Bright, Charmed, Inspiring, Intriguing Pure Color Envy Shine Lipsticks

Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Shine Sculpting Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.10 oz.) is supposed to be a medium coverage, hydrating lipstick with a “luminous shine.” They seem to be designed as a sheerer, glossier option but based on the Pure Color Envy Sculpting formula. They’re not much sheerer, but they have a lighter look to them as they have some translucency (coverage is closer to mostly opaque, though) with a glossier, shinier finish. Some shades have faint pearly shimmer but some have next to none.
