Estee Lauder Powerful (220) Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick

Estee Lauder Powerful (220) Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “mid-tone, blue pink.” It’s a medium, cool-toned pink with blue undertones and a light sheen. It had mostly opaque color coverage, while the consistency was creamy and slightly thicker than other shades in the range. It wore well for four hours, which is shy of the six-hour wear claimed, though it was lightly hydrating and comfortable to wear during that time. Guerlain Geraldine (77) (P, $51.00) is shimmery. Bite Beauty Kumquat (LE, $24.00) is lighter, more matte. YSL Fetish Pink (8) (P, $34.00) is lighter. NARS Goodbye Emmanuelle (LE, $26.00) is darker. MAC Playtime (LE, $17.00) is brighter. MAC Divine Choice (P, $22.00) is lighter, less pigmented. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Estee Lauder Dynamic (410) Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “mid-tone, warm neutral.” It’s a muted, medium rosy coral with warm undertones and a soft shine. It had full color coverage, and the consistency of the formula was light-medium in weight, lightly creamy, and easy to apply. It lasted for five hours on me, and it was lightly moisturizing over time. MAC Mystical (LE, $16.00) is sheerer. Chanel Boheme (91) (P, $34.00) is sheerer. Estee Lauder Rebellious Rose (P, $30.00) is darker. MAC Out for Passion (LE, $20.00) is sheerer. Too Faced Bon Bon (P, $21.00) is brighter, pinker. Givenchy Brun Createur (103) (P, $36.00) is warmer. Urban Decay Liar (P, $22.00) is warmer. Urban Decay Streak (P, $22.00) is lighter, brighter. Chanel Saga (P, $34.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Aah, why are rosy corals so irresistable to me! I have two of the dupes listed for Dynamic, and other similar colours too, but Dynamic and Rebellious Rose are still to two from this range I really want!

The first lipstick is absolutely gorgeous on you!

Unfortunately, I can’t comment on the second one, as the pictures are not loading/showing up and attempting to open them in a new tab results in a 404 error. Refreshing the page does nothing. I’ve had this issue on your site quite often recently, and on several different computers/internet connections. Is something up?

Hi Anna,

I don’t know why they weren’t showing up (they were for me), but I renamed and reuploaded them – they should show up.

Hi Vineetha,

I don’t know why they weren’t showing up (they were for me), but I renamed and reuploaded them – they should show up.

I have used Estee Lauder lipsticks for many years and they are my preferred brand. My high expectations of the new Envy formula were quickly dashed with the first wearing of Powerful. The lipstick dragged on application and didn’t smooth out evenly on my lips. I found it very drying and my lips were sore after wearing it for six hours. I tried it several more times and only found it barely wearable with a lip balm base coat and a light coat of lip gloss. I would not recommend this new formula to anyone with dry lips.

Sorry to hear that this formula didn’t work out for you! It sounds like perhaps you had an allergic reaction? Soreness sounds really bad!!

So glad you reviewed this.. Dynamic and a pink was 1 of the colors I swatched and liked at the Estee Lauder counter a few wks ago but the YSL counter just keep calling me. haha

I love Powerful so much, and it looks great on you! It’s so refreshing that it’s not a bright, in-your-face pink; don’t get me wrong, I love those, but I also enjoy changing it up a little. Quick question about the rating: how do you decide that, for example, Powerful gets 4.5 and the other lipstick gets 5? I’m sure you’ve been asked something like this a bajillion times, sorry for that!

OK, Powerful is pretty on you, but Dynamic is GORGEOUS! 😀 It’s such a soft, pretty, sophisticated-but-still-youthful shade on you! O_o

Now I want it too 😀 (Although I can’t imagine it would look anywhere near the same/as good on me, LOL!)

Gosh i blady want all of them… they’re freaking gorgeous n christine u rock all of them n i mean all:-)))
But since i cant get all which are the shades u really think i should buy?
Also im looking out for a good quality fushia pink so do u think i should buy the one from this line or should i go with Urban Decay Anarchy?

I am so up for trying one of these babies out now. Absolutely love how i can see them all on one page, kudos for that! It makes it so much easier to choose a shade- and you pretty much have all of them!!
