Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Shine Sculpting Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.10 oz.) is supposed to be a medium coverage, hydrating lipstick with a “luminous shine.” They have semi-opaque to mostly opaque coverage with a luminous finish. Some shades have a faint pearl shimmer, but the shimmer is hard to detect when worn (I wouldn’t describe them as shimmery, for example). The wear time ranges from four to six hours, and the formula is hydrating while worn. The texture is more balm-like with some tackiness, but it’s comfortable to wear. I couldn’t detect any scent or taste from the formula.

Estee Lauder Empowered Pure Color Envy Shine Sculpting Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a brightened, orange-red with warm undertones and very fine pink pearl paired with a luminous shine. It had mostly opaque coverage with a light translucency, so the natural lip color can peek through, but it is still a fair amount of coverage. This shade lasted for six hours and was hydrating while worn. Chanel Arthur (440) (P, $36.00) is less glossy. Urban Decay Sheer Slowburn (P, $20.00) is less glossy. Tom Ford Beauty Diego (LE, $32.00) is more matte. MAC Excite (LE, $16.00) is lighter. Charlotte Tilbury Love Bite (P, $32.00) is redder. MAC Fashion Trip (LE, $22.00) is more shimmery. Bite Beauty Grandifolia (LE, $28.00) is brighter. Estee Lauder Envious (P, $30.00) is cooler-toned. Tom Ford Beauty Firecracker (06) (LE, $50.00) is lighter. MAC Cherry Glaze (LE, $20.00) is redder. Too Faced Red Stiletto (P, $22.00) is redder. Givenchy Carmin Escarpin (306) (P, $36.00) is more orange. NARS Future Red (LE, $26.00) is redder. Maybelline Vibrant Mandarin (P, $7.49) is more orange. Guerlain Gilda (P, $51.00) is more shimmery. Guerlain Genna (P, $51.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Estee Lauder Heavenly Pure Color Envy Shine Sculpting Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a softened, medium orange with pink-red tones and fine tangerine shimmer. This was one of the more shimmery shades that I tried. It had semi-opaque color payoff that covered evenly and gave lips a smoother, more rounded look. The color lasted for four and a half hours, and it felt moisturizing while worn. Chanel Sari Dore (414) (P, $36.00) is more orange. Gucci Beauty Fever (P, $39.00) is lighter, less glossy. Tom Ford Beauty Sweet Spot (05) (P, $50.00) is lighter. MAC Dreaming Dahlia (LE, $16.00) is lighter, sheerer. MAC Fashion Force (LE, $20.00) is cooler-toned, less shimmery, sheerer. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Estee Lauder Mischievous Rose Pure Color Envy Shine Sculpting Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a light pink with neutral-to-warm undertones and a creamy, lightly glossy finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, but the lighter color of this shade made it prone to applying unevenly–it’s not as bad as the worst offenders, but it is one of the lesser shades that I tried in the range. It lasted for four hours and was moderately hydrating when worn. MAC Catty (LE, $16.00) is cooler-toned. Chanel Olga (422) (P, $36.00) is sheerer. Chanel Vera (420) (P, $36.00) is sheerer. Maybelline Blushing Bud (705) (P, $7.49) is brighter, pinker. MAC Dream Daze (LE, $22.00) is similar. MAC Soft Savour (LE, $16.00) is more matte. Chanel Intime (93) (P, $35.00) is lighter. Givenchy Nude Guipure (106) (P, $36.00) is darker. Estee Lauder Impulsive (P, $30.00) is slightly darker. Tom Ford Beauty Summer Fling (04) (LE, $50.00) is pinker. YSL Nude Beige (1) (P, $34.00) is lighter. Too Faced Taffy (P, $22.00) is similar. MAC Shy Shine (P, $16.00) is more shimmery. Guerlain Gabrielle (P, $51.00) is more shimmery.

I rather like Mischievious Rose.. The finish looks pretty darn good to me for a colour of this range. It’s darker than YSL #1 which is slightly pale for me for summer skin (which is usually when I am reaching to wear) so I may have to grab. I like having almost invisible shades like this that don’t run completely warm stashed in my makeup bag where I can grab and swipe and look a little more pulled together.

Empowered is fabulous (and looks amazing on you). I really like the other two colors, as well. Estee Lauder does know how to do a good lipstick.

SO SO pretty. Why you no sell these Sephora :((( Love these compared to their more opaque cousins ..the original pure colour envy line.

Empowered reminds me of, Idk? Hawaiian Punch? I really love it!!! Heavenly looks beautiful too, reminds me a little of my much beloved MAC Marque. As for Mischievous Rose….uh, nope. I have one of its dupes Maybelline Blushing Bud, and even that seems too light a pink for me.

I like all 3! But, I still am have Blossom Bright and Intriguing at the top of my wish list for first pick! It’s going to be a hard choice! I may actually have to go to a counter to try them on.

Empowered is such a lovely shade!

Heavenly caught me by surprise though. At first glance, I couldn’t describe what exact color it was. I like it. It’s a bit muted and neutral, but has some more color than a real neutral.

I literally said “OOOOOOOO” (like “moo”, not “oh”, LOL) when I saw the pic of you wearing Empowered…you look HOT! 😀

I like all three, But Heavenly and Empowered is a bit more me. It will be a long visit at EL to decide on these. For some days in the summer I really like lipsticks like these, a bit sheerer and hydrating and luminous.
