Estee Lauder Angel Lips, Starlit Pink, Frosted Apricot Hi-Lustre Lipsticks Reviews & Swaatches

Angel Lips

Estee Lauder Angel Lips Hi-Lustre Pure Color Envy Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium pink with strong, warm undertones and a luminous sheen with very faint pearl. It had more of a pearl-like quality to it than overt shimmer, so it was a lot less shimmery compared to past releases in this formula.

The pigmentation was nearly opaque, rather than medium, so it was also more pigmented than marketed (which may be good or bad thing depending on what you like!). The consistency was lightly creamy, smooth, and lightweight with enough slip to be comfortable to apply but not slide around during wear. There was a smidgen of product that sank into my deeper lip lines that I could see in the close-up photo but not in person. It lasted well for four and a half hours and felt hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$32.00/0.12 oz. - $266.67 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have medium coverage with a lustrous finish. It took the Pure Color Envy formula and added shimmer to it with the end result varying from lightly pearlized to more frosted and near-metallic. The shimmer was finer in size, so the lipsticks did not feel gritty on the lips, and the particles didn’t migrate as the lipstick wore down.

The coverage ranged from semi-sheer to nearly opaque, so it really depended on the shade on how true it was to medium coverage. The formula felt lightly creamy, thinner but not clingy, and with just enough slip to be comfortable to apply and to wear without feeling slippery during wear. The shades lasted from four to six hours and usually hydrating while worn.

The formula had a vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

Starlit Pink

Estee Lauder Starlit Pink Hi-Lustre Pure Color Envy Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark raspberry pink with subtle, cool undertones and a soft, metallic finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff in a single layer, which applied evenly and smoothly across my lips with ease. The texture was lightweight, lightly creamy, and not too thick or too thin, so it sat well on my lips and had good adherence. It wore well for five hours, left a faint stain behind, and was moisturizing over time.

Frosted Apricot

Estee Lauder Frosted Apricot Hi-Lustre Pure Color Envy Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark coral with moderate, warm undertones and a subtle, pink and gold pearl woven through its more luminous finish. The texture was lightly creamy, emollient but not too slippery, and comfortable to apply in a fluid stroke, which yielded semi-opaque coverage.

It seemed a little more pigmented than marketed, which is likely not a deal-breaker for most. The color could have applied a little more evenly along the edges, but it didn’t look uneven in person. The color stayed on nicely for five hours and felt hydrating while worn.

Out of the three, I do like Angel Lips a lot. But I have MAC Nicki’s Nude, so I may need to rethink getting Angel Lips…. that won’t be so easy!

I’ve been eyeing Starlit Pink, seeing that it scored an A and is a true raspberry pink (thank you for the perfect color adjusted photos Christine!) it shall be mine1

Starlit Pink and Frosted Apricot are both gorgeous and I want them both. I’m going to check the dupes lit carefully before buying as I am on a very strict low buy.
