Rich, creamy goodness in 20 classic shades from Estee Lauder.
If you have already seen my review and swatch of Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick in shade 410 or Dynamic here, you know I love the range. I now have more lipsticks to show you from this Fall 2014 launch. Intensely creamy and pigmented, these lipsticks have better staying power than is expected of regular bullet lipsticks, and come in 20 mostly classic shades.
I am not going to waffle on about packaging, formula and so on, since I already waxed eloquent in my review of Dynamic. Suffice it to say that Intense Nude is even softer and creamier. It may not last the promised six hours on me, but definitely manages four.
Check out my swatches of Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick in Intense Nude and Tumultous Pink.
Intense Nude is a rosy neutral. There is enough pink in this lipstick to prevent it from looking "corpsically brown" or grey on me. I tried Irresistible from this range and it is so grey-brown that it looks corpse-/zombie-like on me and the SA lunged at me with makeup remover when I tried it on.
Tumultous Pink is a bright, cool fuchsia. It is nothing like my usual shades.
From left, these are Tumultous Pink and Intense Nude, with Dynamic (my favourite dusty rose shade) on the extreme right for comparison.
Tumultous Pink on the lips:
VerdictIf you have not tried out the Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipsticks, you certainly are missing out on some amazing lippie-goodness. For neutral and subtle-lip fans, I recommend Intense Nude, while Dynamic is a dusty rose. Irresistible is a great neutral for those who hate pink tones in their neutrals; it looks grey-brown and corpsical on me. Rebellious Rose is a very deep version of Dynamic; not my thing. For fans of fuchsia, you have Tumultous Pink and Dominant to choose from, and the vampy-fuchsia that is Insolent Plum. Sorry; I haven't gone near the reds or the peaches.
My favourite shade in the range? It remains Dynamic. I am a dusty-rose person forever. But second choice? Intense Nude, of course; it gives Dynamic a very good run for the money.
The Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipsticks are $30 each. Check out all the shades here.
