Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipsticks

Last year, Estée Lauder’s new Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipsticks won not just one, but two beauty awards – heralding them the “Best Lipstick” by Cosmopolitan Beauty and “Most Wearable Lip” by the Grazia Beauty Awards, and after giving four of their new shades a whirl I can completely see why. With a premise that the mulit-faceted pigments creates sculpted definition giving your lips shape and a curvaceous finish, the formula of these lipsticks is completely luscious. The texture is smooth and hydrating, giving the lips a rich deposit of colour with a subtle glossy sheen (similar to MAC’s Cremesheen formula). In fact these lipsticks even smell like the classic vanilla-scent of your favourite MAC lipstick and have a creamy consistency that practically hugs the lips and lasts well for a good few hours.

Encased in Estée Lauder’s iconic navy and gold packaging, the lid to these lipsticks is magnetic giving this product a classy-sounding ‘click’ everytime you use it. They are so lovely and soft to apply and feel like they are melting onto your lips, leaving them saturated with colour yet completely moisturised too. The four shades I have been sampling are beautiful and very me! Desirable and Potent are both very pretty pink nudes, with Potent being slightly more peach-toned. Powerful is a wonderful fuchsia pink that really adds a pop of colour to your makeup but the star of the show is definitely Defiant Coral which is a unique coral-red with bursting orange undertones. It is seriously stunning!

You can purchase Estée Lauder’s Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipsticks* (£24) from Boots or Estée Lauder online, and with a whopping 30 different shades to choose from ranging from nudes, pinks, berries, mauves and plums, there is bound to be a shade to suit you. I certainly fancy picking up some more next time I am passing by a counter and I currently have my eye on Reckless or Thrilling! Which is your favourite shade from the four I have been trying recently?

    Those nudes are so similar. All of these shades are spot on! I love the formula of these lipsticks. I picked up Envious a few months ago which is a gorgeous red. It's one of my faves. xxx

    You can always rely on Estee Lauder for such classic colours. The nudes are spot on for me!

    These look like beautiful colours, a little glossier than I expected but beautiful regardless. Can't say I'm overly keen on the price tag, and that will be the one thing stopping me picking these up.
