Envious was the first lipstick that I bought from Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting range. Just passing by the the Estee Lauder store, I saw this model wearing a beautiful color on her lips in the poster. I immediately walked into the store, asked the SA which shade it was, and bought it by swatching just on my hands and not even trying on the lips.
Price: INR 2300
The lipstick comes in a classy royal blue and gold packaging. It has a magnetic lock, which makes it safe to carry in your handbag without any worries. The lipstick looks gorgeous in the bullet, and I love this packaging a lot.
Now the texture of these lipsticks is super amazing. I have already reviewed the shade Rebellious Rose here, and Envious is no different in texture than this one. It glides on lips easily, without any tugging on lips, and gives a very hydrated and moist look to the lips. Love the texture of this range!!! It keeps the lips hydrated for a long time, and after a while I even forget that I have anything on my lips, it is super light! It does not settle in the lines nor does it accentuates them.
Envious is a beautiful red color, which will suit a lot of skin tones. It looked a little more deeper in the poster, but I love how it looks on my lips. It is such a lovely glossy red color, that will add loads of confidence to your look. I totally love this color. It is great for night outs and parties, but if you love wearing red then you can rock it during the day as well. If you are one of those who have difficulty in finding your perfect red, then I suggest you give this one a try and I am sure you will fall in love with this shade.
The lipstick is very pigmented. Even pigmented lips will need 1-2 swipes to give a true color. It lasts for at least 6 hours, after which it fades away evenly. It does transfer a bit, but for the color and formula, I don’t mind that at all. It leaves a beautiful tint to the lips, which does not look patchy at all.
Flawed or Fab???
Will I recommend Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipsticks to others???
Definitely Yes. And in case you are a matte lover, they have come up with matte line in the same range. So you can definitely give them a shot if you want.
