Oblivious

Estee Lauder Oblivious Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a lighter, rosy beige with subtle, warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-opaque color payoff that applied fairly evenly, but it was one of the less-flattering shades in the formula I’ve tried. The color sank into my lip lines a bit, and the product seemed more prone to highlighting imperfections of my lip texture. The lipstick itself felt lightly creamy, emollient without being slippery, and was comfortable to wear. This shade lasted well for four hours and felt moisturizing over time.

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.

Knockout Nude

Estee Lauder Knockout Nude Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark pink with warmer undertones and a natural sheen. It had nearly opaque color coverage that adhered evenly and applied smoothly across my lips without tugging. The consistency was lightly creamy with enough slip to be comfortable and felt lightweight overall. It stayed on nicely for four and a half hours and felt hydrating while worn.

Secret Life

Estee Lauder Secret Life Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deep, chocolatly brown with subtle, warm undertones and a lightly glossy finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single stroke, which adhered evenly and smoothly across my lips without tugging during application. The texture was lightweight, creamy without being too heavy or emollient, and felt comfortable to wear over time. The only issue I had was that the product didn’t adhere as well to the inner area of my lips. The color lasted well for five hours and was moisturizing during that time.

I want Knockout Nude! I went to Macy’s on my lunch break and swatched it next to MAC Tres Blasé (which I just happen to be wearing today!) and they seem very different in person. I would have bought Knockout Nude, but it was sold out. The SA even checked other Macy’s in my area and they were sold out, too. 🙁

I do have 2 dupes for Knockout Nude, but I sure do love that shade!

Love the molton chocolate shade Secret Life, too! I’d probably get one of the PMG dupes instead, because those appear far more opaque. She’s So Deep has been on the old WL for awhile, as has Divine Brown.

Oblivious certainly lives up to its name – a very pale kind of lipstick that would look like death on me.
Secret Life is OK, but nothing worthy of the $50+ it would retail here.
