While perusing new products last week, I noticed that there were new shades of Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Lipstick–at least 18 that I could find! There are also new Hi-Lustres, which I don’t have right now but hope to eventually have at some point.

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Yay thank you for the swatches Christine! This is one of my favorite formulas and I have you to thank for introducing them to me! Looking forward to your reviews, but they sure do look pretty and like they perform well just from your sneak-peek! The colors look so shiny and saturated <3

So excited that you swatched these, I love this formula! A lot of the colors are ones from EL’s older lipstick lines (as are some of the new Hi-Lustres), so I wonder if they are folding those into the newer Pure Color Envy line, with its superior formula and lack of scent (and higher prices).

I have a couple of these lipsticks, not the new colors, but have noticed that the lipstick bends or leans when I apply it, like it’s too soft. I suppose it would be better applied with a lip brush.

Estée Lauder, bringing back the old favorites! Or at least recycling the names – Pinkberry, Bois de Rose and Rose Tea are old names; I loved the old incarnation of Bois de Rose so I will most definitely look at this one. Naked Desire looks really pretty on your lips. Pale colors look dismal on me but I’ll try it on in an act of self-flagellation.

Oh very pretty swatches! I’m instantly drawn to the shade ‘never enough’, looks like such a nice formula I’m going to have to try it for sure!
