Estee Lauder Impassioned (330) Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “bright vibrant orange.” It’s a medium-dark orange-red with warm undertones and a soft shine. It had rich, fully opaque color coverage that applied smoothly and evenly without settling into lip lines. The consistency was lightly creamy but didn’t feather over the six-hour wear time. It was lightly moisturizing while worn. Lipstick Queen Jungle Queen (P, $22.00) is a touch lighter. Givenchy Carmin Escarpin (306) (P, $36.00) is darker, redder.

These look really pretty! I am totally sold on Lipstick Queen right now, they have caught my fancy so bad I don’t see no other! πŸ˜€

I love these lipsticks, but could only justify getting a couple because I have so many similar shades. I’m hoping EstΓ©e Lauder starts releasing limited edition lipsticks in this formula, so I can get more without feeling guilty. πŸ™‚ If you have a chance, you should try Desirable, which is a gorgeous pinky-peachy beige that brightens up my face and the face of everyone I’ve seen wearing it (if you count the blog swatches I looked at obsessively before it finally came back in stock at Sephora was a lot).

Yes, the range is definitely very basic – more dupable than not in a way – which is good in the sense that you can easily find a shade you may be looking for… but bad if you already have a stash of lipsticks πŸ˜‰

Great quality products like these need more exposure and love on YouTube! Thanks for the review. I trust your feedback and swatches and will definitely be checking these out! I like some of the lighter, more work wearable shades you posted. The vibrant ones look very nice on you, btw.

I know this is totally unrelated but Chirstine I have a question, I really like the revlon lipstick that’s in the she’s so mean lyric video(matchbox 20) and I can’t read the number and I was wondering if you’d check it to see what you thought it was. It’s around 1:14. I think it could be coralberry but I might be wrong.

I liked Envious when I swatched it for my Loot alert! I need to see how similar it is to EL Rich Red though (which I somehow neglected to caper it to at the counter *sigh*)! πŸ™‚

Great! thanks for the review, I love to see lipstick Estee laduer Envy on your beautiful lips! love Reviews bright lipsticks, it boosts my spirits

I like them both, and both look gorgeous on you! I think EL has a winner with this lipstick range, the texture is so comfortable and the colors are beautiful.
