Uninhibited

Estee Lauder Uninhibited Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark orange-red with warm undertones and a soft sheen. It was richly pigmented with a creamy, hydrating consistency that applied evenly across the lips. The texture was lightweight, comfortable to wear, and made my lips appear smoother. This shade wore well for seven hours on me.

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.

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.

LORAC California Dreaming Eyeshadow Palette ($30.00 for 0.34 oz.) includes twelve eyeshadows in both matte and shimmer finishes. The palette runs warmer, but it seemed more like a neutral palette with pops of rose and mauve accents. The formula felt looser and drier overall; sort of like LORAC’s “filler” formula, when they put together more affordable palettes but aren’t part of their Pro collection (which always has a silkier, more refined feel). I find that this formula can be better or worse depending on the shades and finishes. The downsides of the formula tend to be that they are prone to fading more quickly and sheering out, so a good primer is an absolute must-have to make this palette wear and perform well.
