Bare Instinct

Estee Lauder Bare Instinct Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium, rosy beige with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. The pigmentation was mostly opaque, but the consistency was less forgiving than most shades in the range as some color pulled into lip lines and it showed a few streaks. It wore well for four hours on me, which was more in line with average than the wear time claimed. The formula was comfortable and hydrating to wear.

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.

Estee Lauder Bois de Rose Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) isa medium-dark plum with strong, warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage with a smooth, creamy texture that adhered well to lips and was very, very lightly tacky in feel (more like the feel that the lipstick wasn’t going to slide around on me than true tackiness). The coverage was even and lasted for five hours on me while hydrating my lips.

Peach Passion

Estee Lauder Peach Passion Pure Color Envy Sculpting Blush ($34.00 for 0.25 oz.) is light-medium pink with warm undertones and gold shimmer. Applied and blended out on the skin, the finish became more luminous with a soft glow that didn’t look like heavy shimmer and did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture.

The Pure Color Envy Sculpting Blush formula is supposed to have an “ultra-silky” feel that gives “fresh” and “radiant” color to the cheeks, while the press release was more specific and stated that it should have “buildable dewy color that lasts all day.” The blush had a soft, lightly dusty texture that felt drier to the touch but did not look dry or powdery on my skin. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable coverage that wore well for even and a half hours on me.

Lover's Blush

Estee Lauder Lover’s Blush Pure Color Envy Sculpting Blush ($34.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a soft, light-medium coral with warm undertones and a golden, satin shimmer. It had semi-sheer color payoff that was buildable to medium coverage.

The Pure Color Envy Sculpting Blush formula is supposed to have an “ultra-silky” feel that gives “fresh” and “radiant” color to the cheeks, while the press release was more specific and stated that it should have “buildable dewy color that lasts all day.” The texture was smooth but firm, so it took some prodding to get enough product to transfer on a brush (or else use a denser brush altogether) to apply to the cheeks to begin with. It blended out fairly well, but I think the lighter color made it a little more forgiving compared to a deeper shade. It wore for seven and a half hours on me before fading.

Poppy Passion

Estee Lauder Poppy Passion Pure Color Envy Sculpting Blush ($34.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a bold, medium-dark red with warmer undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had mostly opaque color payoff from the get-go, which was buildable to full coverage, if desired.

The Pure Color Envy Sculpting Blush formula is supposed to have an “ultra-silky” feel that gives “fresh” and “radiant” color to the cheeks, while the press release was more specific and stated that it should have “buildable dewy color that lasts all day.” The finish on this shade was rather matte, and it did not seem to get more luminous when blended (which can happen with more satin finish powders), so I can’t say that it was really radiant or dewy on the skin. The texture was thinner and could have been more blendable in practice, as it was fussy and took a lot of maneuvering just to get it to look mostly even. It did, however, wear for almost nine hours on me.
