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.

Formula Overview

$32.00/0.12 oz. - $266.67 Per Ounce

The Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick formula is supposed to have “high-intensity color” in a "single stroke" that "glides on effortlessly" and has "six hour" wear. More recent copy of the formula has been more specific as it having "medium-to-full coverage."

Most shades in the range are lightweight, creamy with moderate slip with semi-opaque to opaque coverage that wears four to seven hours. The formula tends to sit well on lips and either gives the illusion of plumpness or smooths out lip lines slightly. It's also hydrating while worn.

They are vanilla-scented but have no discernible taste.

Nude Cult

Estee Lauder Nude Cult Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium peachy brown with warm undertones and a satiny sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied evenly across the lips and did not drag when applied. The lipstick felt creamy, lighter weight but had substance to it on the lips. It wore well for five and a half hours and felt hydrating to me.

Pinkberry

Estee Lauder Pinkberry Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a subdued, medium-dark pink with neutral-to-warm undertones and a soft sheen. It had good color coverage that went on fairly evenly with slight visible streaking when I pressed my lips together. The consistency was lightweight, creamy without being too slippery, and comfortable to wear. On me, the lipstick wore nicely for five hours and was moisturizing.

Pinkberry looks on you how MAC Cosmo looks on me! I’m serious! Probably why I love Cosmo so much. It just has that perfect mlbb(and glossy) look that I really like with my more convoluted eye looks.
But it will be Nude Cult that goes on my wishlist. It is a really good nude shade for me, it would seem. Although I still have plenty of UD Liar and MAC Marque to use up first.

Looks like Pinkberry is closest to something I would wear. Interestingly enough I have several lippies that are similar in color.

Wow, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a product with a rating under an A that you recommended! Was it the color that made you decide that? It is super pretty. I wish I wore lipstick! I always feel like it looks a bit silly on me. 🙂

There definitely have been – this is not the first. You might want to check out the Review FAQ, since the recommendation is my personal recommendation and is not about the rating of the product for explanation! 🙂

Oops, I didn’t even realize there were others! I’ve been looking at your blog for a long time but I overlooked that detail.
Also, I have read the FAQ, I was just curious what exact thing made you choose it, but it’s fine! 🙂
