Estee Lauder Rose Tea is a moderately warm-toned, medium-dark mauve with a cream finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $32.00 and contains 0.12 oz.
Estee Lauder Rose Tea Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a soft, pinky mauve with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had good color coverage, though not quite opaque, that applied evenly and smoothly across the lips without tugging. The lipstick was creamy, lightweight, and hydrating without being too slippery on the lips. This shade stayed on well for just over five 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.
