Estee Lauder Pure Colour Envy Sculpting lipsticks - Dominant, photos, review, swatches

When you're greeted by an army of brand new lipsticks like this:


Your first thought might be "Wow, these are beautiful".  Mine was "Karen, don't knock them over or it'll be like dominos and you'll be shot and never asked to anything again by Estee Lauder".  I managed to keep my poise when seeing these beauts, the Pure Colour Envy Sculpting lipsticks from Estee Lauder which are on counters now.



The 20 shade strong collection are broken down into four categories, nudes to browns, pinks to berries, corals to reds and mauves to plums so no matter what skin tone you have or favourite shades you like, they've something for everyone.

The formula is simply gorgeous.  Creamy yet lightweight, pigmented, not sticky or tacky, moisturising thanks to hyaluronic acid and the longevity is fantastic.


I was given the shade Dominant to play with which is a wearable mid toned pink.  But before we get on to that, can we talk about the packaging?  Sleek and sexy and get this, it has a magnetic closure that adds even more luxury to the product and I guarantee you that you'll use the lipstick, close it, then open it again just to close it again.  Having not changed lipstick packaging since 1992, they did well and picked a good 'un.





Dominant feels lightweight on the lips yet packs a whopper of a punch in terms of pigmentation.  The swatch on my hand above shows one swipe from the bullet.  With strong shades like this, I like to apply it from the bullet to the lips and then use a lip brush to tidy the edges.  It lasts a good 4-5 hours on me, fading away nicely leaving a light stain on the lips.

I can't fault this lippie at all and at €29, it's on the spendy side, but when you're talking about a product that looks fab, feels fab and is fab, I'd happily hand over my cash to get more.  And when I say more, we all know I'm talking a nude and a coral shade.

The Estee Lauder Pure Colour Envy Sculpting Lipsticks are on counters now.  Will you be partaking in one (or five)?

    1. So creamy but not too slippy which means it hangs around for a good while, I think I'm in trouble as I want more!
