Estee Lauder Prowl Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is dark pink with warm undertones and a cream finish. The pigmentation was mostly opaque, though it was buildable to full coverage with some layering. The texture was lightweight, adhered well to the lips but didn’t feel clingy (but it didn’t slide around either, so it wasn’t high-maintenance), and felt moisturizing while I wore it. On me, the color stayed on well for six and a half hours.

The Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick formula is supposed to have “high-intensity color” that hydrate lips with six-hour wear. It’s one of my favorite formulas, as the majority of the shades are creamy, smooth, pigmented, hydrating, and long-wearing (four to seven hours). They are vanilla-scented but have no discernible taste.

Pussy Control

NARS Pussy Control Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ($27.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark purple with subtle, warmer pink undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had good color payoff, though it was not quite opaque without building up the color in layers. The consistency was smooth, velvety, and glided on easily, while the lip color sat fairly well on the lips but some texture was emphasized. This shade wore for four and a half hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating.

The formula is supposed to be “long-lasting” with “rich” and “seamless color.” The texture has a more velvety feel: smooth, thinner but glides on easily, and doesn’t have a lot of wetness/creaminess. The pigmentation varied from shade to shade with most shades having semi-opaque coverage. They were easy to apply along the lips and comfortable to apply, as they did not tug. The formula lasted anywhere from three hours to six hours, and some shades were somewhat drying and others were non-drying.

Tom Ford Beauty Tantalize Shade & Illuminate Lips

Tom Ford Beauty Tantalize Shade & Illuminate Lips

Tom Ford Beauty Tantalize Shade & Illuminate Lips

Tantalize

Tom Ford Beauty Tantalize Shade & Illuminate Lips ($60.00 for 0.12 oz.) contains a light-medium orange-coral and a bright, coral-red. Both shades performed fairly well, though the deeper shade performed exceptionally well as it was incredibly pigmented and applied beautifully.

Shade & Illuminate Lips is a lipstick duo that features a formula that is supposed to have “rich color” and “adherence” with a “velvet matte finish.” The duos are designed to have a lighter shade and a darker shade, and they can be worn alone, mixed, or as an ombre lip look. There was also a dual-ended applicator–a sponge on one end and a brush on the other–but the sponge really did not work well to apply the color, as it yielded sheer coverage and seemed to suck all the emollient qualities out of the formula and left behind a drier, almost powdery texture on the lips. The lip brush worked, but for me, the tiny applicator was harder to control and took me three to four times as long to apply compared to a traditional lip brush (which has a longer handle). The actual formula felt like there was a powderiness to it that is not present in any of Tom Ford’s other lipstick ranges, though the formula felt lightly creamy, thin but not too thin, and smooth. Once I applied the color and actually wore it for a few minutes, I did not notice the powderiness that was there when I was initially applying the lipstick.

NARS Bahama Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ($27.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a muted, medium plum with warm, rosy undertones and a semi-matte finish.
