Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick in Desirable

Estée Lauder has a new line of lipsticks called the Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipsticks, and I've been trying out the shade Desirable* ($34/3.5 g). These lipsticks come housed in stunning navy and gold packaging, with a magnetic closure. I absolutely love magnetic closures, and I've been having way too much opening and closing this tube!

"Super creamy, glides on effortlessly, covers evenly. Sensually soft and smooth, luxuriously comfortable.
The lipstick bullet is shaped to sculpt the curves of your lips. The case feels like luxury in your hands. And with one click, case closed." - Estée Lauder

Estée Lauder's Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick in Desirable is a beautiful light pink-nude shade. I absolutely love this kind of shade, it's one of my favourites to wear. I do like a bold lip, but sometimes something more subtle is nice too. Desirable looks gorgeous paired with a smoky eye, but I suspect that it would look great with almost any look. This formula is super creamy, hydrating, and comfortable to wear. This shade has great pigmentation - you only need to go over your lips once for a rich, opaque colour. I haven't had any issues with this formula clinging to dry patches or setting into fine lines. I get about 4 hours of hydration from this formula, and the colour lasts about 5 hours. I've found that this shade lasts well through light eating and drinking, and it fades nicely, not patchy.

You can easily use the edge of this lipstick to outline your lipsticks, which would be more useful with the darker shades in the range. The flat side of the bullet hugs my lips nicely, and makes application incredibly easy. This is definitely a shade that I could reapply on the go, but I suspect that you won't be able to do this with the darker shades.

I definitely think that this formula is a winner! There are so many beautiful shades in this range, and my fellow Canadian Beauty Blogger Zoe reviewed Rebellious Rose, and Jasmine reviewed Tumultuous Pink. I have my eyes on Dominant and Impassioned. Have you tried out this new formula form Estée Lauder yet? What's your favourite shade from the range?

  8. Very beautiful <3 I wish I got it as a gift lol cause it's even more expensive over here in Romania. I like that it\s long-lasting as creamy l/s that moisturize lips usually don't last much

  13. I love how neutral and every day wearable it is. Do you think it would look good on a brunette with cool coloring?

    1. I'm brunette with slightly warm colouring and I love it! This shade might lean a bit pinker on someone with cool colouring, but I think that it would still look very nice :)
