This is the last one from my current (see how I said current – meaning hopefully, there will be more) selection of Estee Lauder Envy Lipsticks. This I picked because of its unique shade and something I seem to be gravitating towards, off late. Did this shade live up to the hype created by other shades – read on and find out.

As mentioned earlier, the packaging for Envy Lipsticks is a classy, square deep royal blue tube with top and base golden in colour. The top has Estee Lauder engraved on it, so does the inner tube. The lipsticks come in a royal blue cardboard box. The box is seal wrapped in plastic – ensuring hygiene and non-contamination. You won’t find the piece previously used or swatched….uggh!!
My Experience with Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick – Rebellious Rose:
Color: This is a fairly unique colour amongst my earlier hot and vibrant ones. This one is a dusty rose – a mix of pink with a little brown and a tad bit of mauve. It’s a beautiful colour – very different and very flattering. It would suit most skin tones. You could wear it on its own or add to smokey eyes – either ways, it will look good.
Texture: I found the texture to be consistent across the line – which feels great because you can pick any colour and find it to be good. It is lightweight, creamy and glides smoothly on the lips. The colour hugs the lips, sculpting them perfectly, without accentuating fine lines. It was hydrating and very comfortable to wear. Even after hours of wear-time, it did not form any dry patches on the lips.
Pigmentation: The lipstick provides saturated colour pigmentation – about 95 – 100% colour deposit in one swipe. These have absolutely fabulous pigmentation. You will feel it when you swipe the shade on your hand – that’s the first thing which hits you about these colours.
Lasting Power: The claim made by the company is 6 hours full coverage. It definitely delivers on the claim and goes beyond. It delivers beyond 6 hours as well, though the intensity of colour starts coming down. It leaves behind a healthy pick stain and fades evenly. There was no dry patch or clinging feeling.
To sum this up for you:

IMBB Rating: 5/5
I just love the colour and find it refreshing after a long stint of corals and fuchsias – not that I don’t love them anymore! But this one’s been getting a little extra love from me. I want a couple more colours from this line but feeling too guilty about the hefty price tag, so I may stay put for sometime. It’s sad that International makeup in India does not go on sale – there is no 20% off on Sephora, etc that you could wait for. Would do you suggest I do?
