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.

I received this as a present. The formula is soooooo creamy and shiny, the smell is nice without being overpowering (smell like high-class pharmacy product) and the pigment is nice, buildable, but (like all similar lip product shades) it STREAKS badly. As soon as you get a crevice it shall go there. But this lipstick is very buildable. You can go from a light plum tint to a dark, almost black finish. It doesn't hold too well (when I put many layers) but you still have a sheer trace. Doesn't withstand drinking or eating. But your lips won't feel dry at all.

I received this lipstick as part of a gift-with-purchase ages ago and tossed it into a drawer. I found it yesterday and decided to give it a try. I'm glad I did because Estee Lauder Intense Nude is an absolutely gorgeous rosy nude. It is extremely comfortable to wear and lasts a very long time for a non-matte lipstick. The formula is creamy and opaque with a light sheen, similar to a satin. It's not really hydrating, but it isn't drying at all.(I think I dismissed it for so long due to its ugly packaging, which hid the luxuriousness of the lipstick inside. I know it's packaged this way because it's a freebie, but I didn't notice it in my drawer for so long because it blended in with the drugstore lipsticks that I never reach for. I will probably want to buy this beautiful shade after I use it up, and then I'll finally have the pretty packaging!)
