Estee Lauder Passion is a moderately warm-toned, dark purple with a cream finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $32.00 and contains 0.12 oz.
Estee Lauder Passion Pure Color Matte Sculpting Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is an eggplant purple with warmer, pink undertones and a satin sheen. It seemed to have fine, barely-there pearl that gave it a more luminous sheen than the matte finish I was expecting.
It had semi-opaque color coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly on my lips but didn't adhere as readily to the inner area of my lips. The texture had some slip and felt wetter compared to most shades in the range, which have more of a velvety, silicone-like feel (not quite powdery but not traditionally creamy either). The color lasted well for six hours, left a faint stain behind, and felt lightly hydrating over time.

Pure Color Envy Matte Lipsticks are formulated with Advanced True Vision™ Technology, which combines multifaceted pigments and refined mattifying powders to provide rich saturated color that feels luxuriously comfortable. Intensely mattified color gives lips a bolder, visibly fuller, defined curvaceous look.
