Estee Lauder New Dimension + Pure Color Envy Singles for July 2015

Estee Lauder Launches for July 2015
Estee Lauder Launches for July 2015

A new perspective. A different angle. Now, Estée Lauder empowers women to transform and define their appearance in a completely new way. Introducing New Dimension, a transformative collection that’s so powerful it will help change women’s perspective on how they see themselves. One breakthrough serum – New Dimension Shape + Fill Expert Serum – and an Expert Liquid Tape along with two custom shaping experts – Shape + Sculpt Face Kit and Shape + Sculpt Eye Kit – help create beautiful contours and a visibly more defined facial shape. Working on every level of skin’s surface, helping to create both visible volume and structure, this new collection finds, flatters and reflects skin’s best features. It’s a multi-faceted transformation, immediately and over time. Needed visible volume is added. Facial contours look more defined. The cheeks and jawline appear more lifted. Revolutionary? Absolutely. New Dimension gives a whole new angle on beauty.

Shape + Sculpt Face Kit ($50.00) (New)

Create an ideal facial framework with New Dimension Shape + Sculpt Face Kit. This intuitive contour kit contains two tones that instantly and expertly sculpt the face. Two coordinated cream shades brighten and contour to add depth and dimension. The light tone accents cheekbones, brows and the nose by bringing light to the center of the face. The dark shade slims and sculpts to emphasize the hollows of cheeks and create shadows where desired.

Shape + Sculpt Eye Kit ($40.00) (New)

Bigger, brighter, lifted or more defined – New Dimension Shape + Sculpt Eye Kit creates an ideal eye shape and appearance. The expertly coordinated trio contour kit plays with shading and finish to create depth and dimension. The universal palette smoothes, contours and highlights with a Smoothing Base, a Contour Shade and a Highlighter Cream. The Smoothing Base preps the lid for the day while the Contour Shade defines the eye depending on desired shape and the Highlighter Cream accentuates and accents the look.

Pure Color Envy Eye Defining Singles ($25.00) (New)

A new generation in eye color, NEW Pure Color Envy Eye Defining Singles is a strikingly edited collection of 20 eyeshadow singles ranging from the softest nudes to the boldest hues. Choose your perfect shades and create a collection of your favorite colors. Available in matte, velvet, luminous and brilliant finishes, the versatile formula ranges from polished mattes to high chromatic shines. Shadows instantly melt onto lids to create a rich veil of creamy, smooth and even color with the weightless silky texture blending to perfection. Skin imperfections are smoothed away and all that is left is a thin layer of pure, unadulterated color that lasts up to six hours when applied dry and up to eight hours of when applied wet. Incredibly versatile, these stunning colors can be used wet or dry. Use dry for a softer, translucent color or wet for extreme color and depth. For a stunningly monochromatic look, wear one color or for a flawlessly contoured eye, layer shades. The talc-free formula allows for any look to be created without it looking chalky or muted. Pure, weightless, non-flaking, crease-resistant color that stays and blends effortlessly.

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

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).

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 Passionate Pure Color Envy Shine Sculpting Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a bright, medium fuchsia-pink with lighter violet and fuchsia pearl. This shade has a natural shine, but it wasn’t as glossy as other shades in the range, while the shimmer was more noticeable than most shades. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that went on evenly and smoothly without pulling into lip lines. On me, the color lasted for five hours and left a slight stain behind, while the formula felt comfortable and hydrating. Maybelline Carnation Cabernet (970) (LE, $7.49) is cooler-toned. Tom Ford Beauty Francesco (LE, $32.00) is darker. Lipstick Queen Play It (P, $50.00) is less glossy. Bobbi Brown Hot Berry (P, $26.00) is darker, more shimmery.

Estee Lauder Pink Dragon Pure Color Envy Shine Sculpting Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It had nearly full color coverage–there was hardly any translucency at all–with a slightly thicker, creamier consistency compared to other shades. It seemed more prone to mpehasizing lip lines as well. It stayed on well for four and a half hours, and it was still moisturizing. Estee Lauder Ambitious Pink (P, $30.00) is lighter, less glossy. Chanel Elise (448) (P, $36.00) is less glossy, cooler-toned. Urban Decay Sheer Ladyflower (P, $20.00) is less glossy, darker. MAC Phosphorescent (LE, $17.00) is warmer.

Estee Lauder Empowered Pure Color Envy Shine Sculpting Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a brightened, orange-red with warm undertones and very fine pink pearl paired with a luminous shine. It had mostly opaque coverage with a light translucency, so the natural lip color can peek through, but it is still a fair amount of coverage.
