Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Defining Eyeshadow

Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Defining Wet/Dry Eyeshadow ($25.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a formula that promises six hours of sheer color applied dry or eight hours of rich color applied damp. It’s available in over twenty shades–I have four of them, shown below–in a variety of finishes. They feel finer and silkier compared to Estee Lauder’s wet/dry Gelee formulation.

Estee Lauder Decisive Poppy & Volatile Pure Matte Sculpting Lipsticks

Estee Lauder Decisive Poppy Pure Matte Sculpting Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium-dark red with neutral-to-cool udnertones and a semi-matte finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation that covered evenly and applied smoothly without tugging on the lips. The color lasted for eight hours and was neither drying nor hydrating on me.

Estee Lauder Covetous Nude, Furious, Neon Azalea, Pure Matte Sculpting Lipsticks

Estee Lauder Covetous Nude Pure Matte Sculpting Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, light-medium peachy brown with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had full color coverage with a light-medium weight consistency that felt creamy applied, so it didn’t tug at the lips. The color seemed to “crack” as the color pulled away, possibly due to the slightly thicker, creamier texture. It wore for four hours on me, but the color settled into lip lines considerably. At least it wasn’t drying! Marc Jacobs Beauty No Angel (242) (P, $30.00) is darker (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Almost Bare (P, $35.00) is darker, glossier (95% similar). Colour Pop Magic Wand (P, $6.00) is lighter, glossier (90% similar). NARS Biscayne Park (P, $25.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Pillow Talk (LE, $17.00) is glossier (90% similar). Bite Beauty Honeycomb (P, $26.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). MAC Lady Be Good (P, $20.00) is lighter, less glossy (90% similar). Urban Decay Stark Naked (DC, $22.00) is lighter (90% similar). Too Faced Chocolate Milkshake (P, $21.00) is lighter, glossier (90% similar). NARS Isola Bella (P, $25.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). Colour Pop She Bad (P, $5.00) is lighter (85% similar). Colour Pop Aquarius (P, $5.00) is lighter, glossier (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Estee Lauder Commanding, Desirous, Extrovert Pure Matte Sculpting Lipsticks

Estee Lauder Commanding Pure Matte Sculpting Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a dark burgundy with subtle, cool berry undertones and a natural sheen. There seemed to be very, very fine pearl laced through the color. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque pigmentation, but it had more slip than other shades in the range, which may have been why it applied rather unevenly and looked sheerer on. The color gathered in lip lines noticeably after two hours of wear and was neither hydrating nor drying. MAC Sin (P, $17.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Runner (LE, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Lingering Kiss (LE, $17.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Bite Beauty Black Cherry (LE, $24.00) is glossier (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Blow (210) (P, $30.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Black Dahlia (10) (LE, $50.00) is cooler (95% similar). Kat Von D Motorhead (P, $21.00) is cooler, less glossy (90% similar). MAC Talk That Talk (LE, $17.00) is lighter, cooler, less glossy (90% similar). Maybelline Burgundy Blush (P, $7.99) is lighter (90% similar). Estee Lauder Brazen (P, $30.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Eugenie (LE, $17.00) is cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Paramour (LE, $5.00) is darker (85% similar). Bite Beauty Bordeaux (P, $28.00) is lighter, cooler, glossier (80% similar). Maybelline Divine Wine (P, $7.99) is lighter (80% similar).

Estee Lauder Shameless Violet, Stronger, Unattainable Matte Sculpting Lipsticks

Estee lauder Pure Color Matte Sculpting Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a new formula that features “rich saturated color” with a matte finish that is “luxuriously comfortable.” I bought three to try out the formula, and this post features those three. The formula is comfortable to wear with a light-medium weight consistency that is creamy and smooth with good pigmentation, though some shades are more pigmented than others. They’re more semi-matte to satin with none of the three I tried having a really flat, matte finish (like a liquid lipstick), so keep that in mind on whether it aligns with your preference for mattes. All three shades were easy to apply, comfortable to wear, and long-wearing. They reminded me of formulas like MAC’s newer Mattes, Urban Decay Matte Revolution, and NARS Audacious.
