Tiger Eye

Estee Lauder Tiger Eye On Hi-Lustre Pure Color Envy Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is medium-dark copper with strong, warm orange undertones and a frosted shimmer-sheen finish. It had medium to semi-opaque, buildable color payoff that went on fairly evenly. The consistency was smooth, lightly emollient, and comfortable to apply, though I could feel the texture of the shimmer slightly after a couple hours of wear (never felt rough or scratchy, just that yes, there was shimmer on my lips). It wore well for four and a half hours and was moisturizing.

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.

Tender Trap

Estee Lauder Tender Trap Hi-Lustre Pure Color Envy Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium, pinky brown with warm undertones and fine gold and peach pearl. It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage that applied without tugging on the lips but could have gone on more evenly. There was a smidgen of color that welled in my deeper lip lines, but I didn’t notice it at a normal viewing distance, only when I looked at it up close. The color lasted for four hours on me and was hydrating.

Hot Kiss

Estee Lauder Hot Kiss Hi-Lustre Pure Color Envy Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, dark plummy brown with subtle, warm undertones and flecks of gold and copper pearl. The flecks of copper seemed to be slightly larger than the particle size in most of the shades, so I could feel the texture of the sparkle/glitter as I applied it to my lips. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which was buildable, that covered evenly. The lipstick wore well for five hours and was hydrating.

I used to wear these shades in the Pure Color range. I’m not sure how similar the Pure Envy lipstick shades are to the older line, but I loved these two.

Every single one looks really, really good. But it is Tiger Eye that has had me from first swatch! It just looks so beautiful and it’s right on cue with this summer’s chrome finish lipsticks.

Hot Kiss also speaks to me, but I likely have something similar enough, or once did? I need to check my stash….
