Best For older women who want to look 5 years younger.
I went to the EL counter and asked for a lipstick that would make my thin lips stand out. I'm in my 50s, so I also wanted something that didn't look like I was going to a New Year's eve party. The saleslady suggested the shade Powerful. I love it. It makes me feel youthful again without looking gaudy, and it reminds me of a shade of lipcolor I wore when I was in my 20s. I feel that people look at me in that shade and think, how does she get away with it? It makes me feel beautiful. I think I've found my signature shade.
I love this lipstick. It has great staying power, so I don't have to worry about constantly checking myself to freshen my lips. Keeps my lips soft and moist feeling even on the coldest winter day or in the hot sunny summertime. Have it in several shades. A little pricey but well worth it.
This was my first time using this product. I was so excited given the many good reviews of the estee lauder line. I purchased two lipsticks in the sculpting line. One was the rebellious rose and the other confident. Both are super creamy, moist and so light along with auesome colour pigmentation. Beautiful colours for my nc42 skin tone. They last probably 4 to 5 hours on me and left a stain even after food and drinks consumption. The only con about this product is that the lipstick is not secure at the base of the bullet, it moves when being applied and presses against the Inside of the bullet and thus causes the lipstick to receive cuttings on it. Only because of that, I'd give this lipstick a 95 percent score. Don't know how to give it half of the 5th star. Its worth 41/2 stars. This range is great to try. Costly but worth it.
"Pure Color" is a true color, getting what is seen online and a long lasting color. Unfortunately not all high end cosmetics are, so I was very pleased with this product. I wore the long wear Duo for yrs till it was no longer made so very pleased w/Pure Color.
I have been using EL lipsticks for years, and love the Pure Color formulations and the discontinued Rich, Rich formulation (special edition Mad Men lipstick was terrific). They have always been comfortable and moisturizing. This Envy formula is not the greatest. It is uncomfortable, even a little irritating, and the wear feels thick (maybe that's the "sculpting" part), and it unfortunately accentuates the lines in my lips and makes them look smaller. It is also not particularly long-wearing. The color I picked (Insatiable Ivory) looked great on the models, but isn't very flattering on me, but I have found that I can use it as a color intensity adjuster to tone down some of my too-bright lipsticks which also helps dilute out some of the negative attributes of the Envy formula. I will say, though, that the case design with the magnetic top is pretty nice.
Normally, I am very pleased with Estee Lauder products. This particular lipstick is not creamy or moisturizing. I have bought 3 different colors and none of them are what I expected. I will not purchase any of these lipsticks ever again.
I love this lipstick -- it stays on all day so I don't need to reapply at work -- I have used Estee Lauder lipsticks and lip liners exclusively for at least 15 years. I have an allergy to lipsticks that have a perfume scent in them and Estee Lauder does not have any scent which makes it the perfect product for me. Also the lipsticks and liners last for many months.
I absolutely love my new Pure Color Envy sculpting lipstick. The color stays so long that I don't have to replace it every single moment. My other lipsticks opened in my purse and I found so many times red color everywhere... The texture of my new lipstick is moist and pleasant. So many people have told me that the color is just perfect for me!!
