I have two of these - Red Ego and Intense Nude. They're both my go-to lipsticks. Red Ego is the perfect red for me. I had Vengeful Red which was gorgeous, but too "look at me!". Red Ego is more wearable. The color makes me feel sexy, and with a bit of care it stays on all day. Intense Nude is also great. A bit more pink than a typical nude - I wish it were a little darker, but it works. Goes great with the "Spice" lip liner. My lips aren't terribly defined so I used a lip brush to apply these. Very happy with both colors!
I went on a whim to the EL counter to try on Rebellious Rose after reading a really glowing review by one of my favorite beauty bloggers. This didn't disappoint. It is a gorgeous pink rose shade that works easily as an everyday color for my very pigmented lips and tan skin. It is not drying at all and stays on for about 4-5 hours easily. Can't wait to try a couple more shades soon!
I'm a lipstick junkie and this formula is honestly amazing. It has such a creamy, long wearing, opaqueness to it that I don't like the other brands that I have anymore. I hope they come out with a few more colors soon but I would honestly recommend this product to anyone. I flip flop between powerful and impulsive all the time depending on other makeup. Highly recommend!!
This is a lipstick that I have been trying to find for years. It's wonderfully felt when applying and wonderfully weighted upon your lips throughout the day without a smear. Have three shades and wear one or another daily. So love them!!!!
I tried this in the store and I purchased the lipstick and liner. I have not used a liner in years. They go really well together. I always get a complement when I wear this lipstick. It has great staying power. The tube also has a nice feel in your hands. The cap is magnetized and pulls to its base, which is kind of cool. If has quality that I have not found at this price point.
I love this lipstick, it is moist and buttery. I would like to get other colors. The color I picked is a neutral, natural color, (Discreet). I would like a brighter color but since I bought online I played it safe.
I was all set to rave about Pure Color Envy lipstick. The packaging is incredible- the names are enticing. I adore the magnetic close! But I'm not going to switch all my lipsticks to Envy. I miss the luxurious moisture of Pure Color lipsticks. This color wears well, and goes on smooth. I did notice that I reapply less with Envy than with a Pure Color... but it's still not my favorite lip color.
Great color, true to shade shown. Creamy, stays put & looks good on. Love the magnetic catch in the lid. No lost lids in the purse or ruined product. Hesitated at the $30 price tag, but worth every dollar. One again, you nailed it Estee!
This lipstick truly does stay on a very long time and it truly hydrates my lips. I bought one to try and was surprised how much I liked it. I have since bought another one. The Defiant Coral color looks great on me and I actually prefer it to the color I have worn for years. I certainly recommend this Pure Color Envy lipstick!
I ordered Brazen and Envious. Opened Envious first, tried it out and loved it. Then I opened Brazen and when I removed the cover of the lipstick it was already twisted up a little and the top was smushed a tiny bit. I thought that was sad (and couldn't figure out how it could have been that way) but I wiped off the red and went to try Brazen, I went to twist it up and discovered the product was already super loose from the base of the tube. Wrapped it back up and returned it, upset. Could not for the life of me figure out why it was like that. Until this morning when I dropped the red one after I applied it... The case was tightly closed, the product twisted all the way back down before it fell - but when I opened the case to see if it was ok, the tube had somehow twisted itself COMPLETELY all the way up to the top, the product had snapped off at the base, and was stuck to the top of the case. Then it struck me what happened in shipping! The magnet must somehow cause the tube to twist upon some kind of impact - the greater the impact the more it twists!!! That would explain why after being jostled in shipping the Brazen was only sticking up a little bit and was smushed on top, and why the Envious which I dropped on the tile floor was completely wrecked. BTW I got it unstuck and shoved it back into the base - I love the coloe so much I will use it with a brush. I can understand the idea of the magnetic packaging but it needs some perfecting!!!
I tried this lipstick at a spa day and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! This is the best EL lipstick I have ever used. It goes on smooth, stays on all day, and is creamy and conditions. No more dry, flakey lips. Great selection of colors. Like the magnetic case. Neat idea. A great value.
I am almost 30 and was looking for a "grown-up" lipstick since I was tired of balmy textures and sparkles. I bought this in ntense nude and rebellious rose and love both so much. The texture is amazing, it doesn't feather, it stays put and feels very comfortable. I would love it if they came out with more colors since I find the current lighter shades don't suit me well.
I bought this in Infamous, a bright light berry-pink, and it's great to wear with bright summery clothes. It does not seem to travel beyond the lipline and wears pretty well. It gives a subtle plumping effect to the lips.
