Melon

Estee Lauder Melon Hi-Lustre Pure Color Envy Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a light-medium coral-orange with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied evenly across the lips without dragging or tugging on them during application. The lipstick felt smooth, lightly creamy, and was easy to work with. It was hydrating and comfortable wear over the four and a half hours it lasted.

The formula is supposed to have medium coverage with a lustrous finish. It takes the Pure Color Envy formula and adds 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 wears down. The coverage was more semi-opaque to opaque, though a lighter hand could achieve medium coverage. . It was lightly creamy with some slip that became more noticeable as the formula warmed up against the lips. The wear ranged from four to six hours and was typically hydrating. The formula featured a vanilla scent but had no discernible taste.

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.

All beauties! Yet, oddly none made my wishlist…. Melon reminds me quite a lot of the OG UD Streak lipstick, of which I have 2 tubes of. Killer Kiss reminds me enough of Maria Moretti that I feel set for now. Now Nectarine is another story! I might just try that one on to see if I love it on me as much as I do on you. It is a definite maybe!

Oh, my goodness, Killer Kiss is stunning! Very tempting, but Lord knows I don’t need more reds. Plus, I have a couple of the dupes. I’m still putting it on my wish list for future reference. 😉 Nectarine is really pretty, as well.

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
