Estee Lauder Bare Instinct Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium, rosy beige with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. The pigmentation was mostly opaque, but the consistency was less forgiving than most shades in the range as some color pulled into lip lines and it showed a few streaks. It wore well for four hours on me, which was more in line with average than the wear time claimed. The formula was comfortable and hydrating to wear.
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.
