Estee Lauder Covetous Nude Pure Matte Sculpting Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, light-medium peachy brown with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had full color coverage with a light-medium weight consistency that felt creamy applied, so it didn’t tug at the lips. The color seemed to “crack” as the color pulled away, possibly due to the slightly thicker, creamier texture. It wore for four hours on me, but the color settled into lip lines considerably. At least it wasn’t drying! Bobbi Brown Almost Bare (P, $37.00) is darker, glossier (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty No Angel (242) (P, $30.00) is darker (95% similar).

Estee Lauder Furious Pure Matte Sculpting Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a brightened, medium coral-orange with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had rich, oppaque pigmentation that covered the lips evenly and looked smooth applied. The consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin, and it didn’t feel clingy, despite being one of the more matte shades in the range. It lasted for six hours on me, and it was just a smidgen hydrating all in all. Bite Beauty #072 (P, $18.00) is cooler (90% similar). Bite Beauty Peche (P, $24.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). MAC Rich & Restless (P, $21.00) is lighter, less glossy (90% similar). Bite Beauty Cin Cin (DC, $24.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar).

Marc Jacobs Beauty Core Cora (234) (P, $30.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Hourglass Muse (P, $28.00) is darker, cooler, less glossy (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Jagger (LE, $36.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). Too Faced The New Black (P, $22.00) is lighter, more muted (80% similar). NARS Grace (P, $34.00) is darker, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Estee Lauder Neon Azalea Pure Matte Sculpting Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a brightened, light-medium fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a satin finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation with a thinner texture that had a very velvety, smooth feel as it applied to the lips. I expected it to have a very matte finish as a result, but it still ended up to be more of a satin-like finish. It wore for six hours on me and left a stain behind, and the formula was neither drying nor hydrating. Tom Ford Beauty Electric Pink (15) (P, $54.00) is less glossy (95% similar). NARS Michiyo (P, $34.00) is more muted (95% similar). Estee Lauder Power Grab (P, $32.00) is darker, more muted, glossier (95% similar). Bite Beauty Nearly Neon Fuchsia (LE, $26.00) is darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Crush (P, $18.00) is darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Anarchy (DC, $22.00) is darker (95% similar). Ardency Inn Twist (P, $25.00) is darker (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Justin (P, $36.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Crush (DC, $22.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Bite Beauty Kimchi (P, $26.00) is lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Are You Surreal (P, $6.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Kat Von D Crush (LE, $21.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). NARS Yu (PiP, $25.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Melt Cosmetics Shady Lady (P, $19.00) is less glossy (90% similar). MAC Both Cheeks (LE, $19.50) is darker (90% similar). Too Faced Melted Fuchsia (P, $21.00) is brighter, glossier (90% similar). Maybelline Orchid Ecstasy (730) (P, $7.49) is glossier (90% similar). Dior Ultra Loud (679) (P, $37.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Pablo (DC, $36.00) is more shimmery, glossier (90% similar). Bite Beauty #092 (P, $18.00) is more muted, less glossy (90% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA SUMMARY | Estee Lauder Pure Color Matte Sculpting Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a new formula that features “rich saturated color” with a matte finish that is “luxuriously comfortable.” The formula is comfortable to wear with a light-medium weight consistency that is creamy and smooth with good pigmentation, though some shades are more pigmented than others. They’re more semi-matte to satin, so keep that in mind on whether it aligns with your preference for mattes. They feel slightly hydrating to not drying for the most part. They reminded me of formulas like MAC’s newer Mattes, Urban Decay Matte Revolution, and NARS Audacious.

I really like all these but don’t need none of them…lol…I think I may look into neon azaela…great post as always πŸ™‚

Covetous Nude would be perfect if it wasn’t cracking! That reminds me of what the Kylie Jenner shade does (I’m not at home and can’t recall the name right now). It is like it is so thick, it bunhes up and cracks. I just couldn’t figure out what the heck was the deal with it!
The other two are just too bright for me. I may give them a look at next Spring/summer. But, I’m ready for Fall makeup now.

Because I’m up to my eyeballs in bright or neon shades, I will regretfully skip on Furious (love the name) and Neon Azalea….
I do wish Covetous Nude had worked out better! Then again, I do already have some *perfect* nude shades. I love my tubes of Marque and Liar!

Nope – I don’t like these lipsticks – they are screaming neon to me. Besides I think that for the times you would wear lipsticks like these you could buy the dupes at a much cheaper price.

I love the two brights! Did you find Furious oxidised at all? I have MAC Morange, and previously had a bright coral-orange longwear from MAC (I think it was Cremesheen, in the skinny tube, Good to Go?), and both of them go on vivid but darken quite a bit within a half hour. To the point where when reapplying, it almost looks like a different colour!

I can’t really recall having an issue with lip products darkening over time on me – other than maybe something like YSL’s Glossy Stains!
