Uninhibited

Estee Lauder Uninhibited Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark orange-red with warm undertones and a soft sheen. It was richly pigmented with a creamy, hydrating consistency that applied evenly across the lips. The texture was lightweight, comfortable to wear, and made my lips appear smoother. This shade wore well for seven hours on me.

The Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick formula is supposed to have “high-intensity color” that hydrate lips with six-hour wear. It’s one of my favorite formulas, as the majority of the shades are creamy, smooth, pigmented, hydrating, and long-wearing (four to seven hours). They are vanilla-scented but have no discernible taste.

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.

Noirish

Estee Lauder Noirish Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark coral-red with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage that went on smoothly and evenly. The lipstick was lightly creamy, didn’t drag but didn’t feel slippery on, and held onto the lips well for over six hours. The formula was moisturizing while worn.

Happy colours! I really like all three. I might have to go to an EL counter soonish, just to check them out in person.
I think Boldface is my favourite.

I love Boldface – a beautiful red on you. By the way, when you were wearing the lighter shades of the Lorac California Dreaming palette, I really had to check twice because I initially thought you weren’t wearing eye shadows at all. It was because the colours used were so close to your own skin tone – which was mentioned a few times by fellow readers when reviewing the palette. As you’ve used the lovely purple shade in this photo, I can see how it works. A lovely eye look too.

I like Boldface but the other two are just too warm/coral for me. The finish on these looks really beautiful – the polar opposite of so many matte lippies which make your lips look like a dried apricot! Your lips in these photos look flawless and “plump”. I think I may treat myself to Boldface or some other red or berry shade from this line (I haven’t purchased anything from Estee Lauder in decades!)
