Musings (534)

Estee Lauder Musings (534) Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark pink-coral with moderate, warm undertones and a glossy, cream finish. It had good color coverage that adhered fairly evenly and smoothly to my lips.

There was a smidgen of streakiness along the edges that wasn’t too noticeable in person. The lipstick had a lightweight, lightly creamy consistency that had enough slip to glide across my lips comfortably but not feel slippery while worn. It lasted well for four and a half hours and felt hydrating while worn.

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.

Sweet Crush (545)

Estee Lauder Sweet Crush (545) Hi-Lustre Pure Color Envy Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy coral with strong, warm undertones with a mix of pink and gold, finer pearl. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, but the finish looked a bit more frosted applied, which resulted in less smoothing of my lip lines–not enough that I’d say it actually emphasized my lip lines, though.

The texture was lightweight, creamy, and smooth with moderate slip but didn’t feel slippery while worn. It stayed on nicely for four and a half hours and felt moisturizing.

Formula Overview

$32.00/0.12 oz. - $266.67 Per Ounce

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.

Because one of my favorite coral lipsticks MAC Make Me Gorgeous is a dupe, I don’t need Musings, but that sure is a pretty shade!

As for Sweet Crush, for me, it looks very 1960’s LA. My aunts wore frosty light apricot lipsticks like this back in the day.

Nice shades, but expensive. I think the coral shade would be more popular than the apricot frost because either the frosty aspect of the lipstick or shade maybe offputting.

Sweet Crush is a kind of colour that I want to be able to use, just because they are fun and I look horrible with that kind of colour on my lips. Strangely that type of colour on the eyelids looks quite good.
Musings also falls into the “nice colour, but not for me” category.

What I really wanted to say was I like Sweet Crush and I agree with Nancy T about it giving off 1960s vibes.
