I just reviewed a Plummy Fall shade for you from this line – Insolent Plum. Now I have a shade which is diametrically different –Intense Nude? Ya, everyone can gasp and get it over with, how did I ever pick up a N*de shade, so not me! I know. I thought I would surprise you guys. So lets find out more about this one.

The packaging is a classy royal blue square case with golden detailing and Estee Lauder etched on it on top as well as on the golden tube. Compared to the golden packaging of the original Pure Color, I find it more understated elegance. The lipsticks come in a Royal blue cardboard box. The box is seal wrapped in plastic – ensuring hygiene and non-contamination.
My experience with Estee Lauder – Pure Colour Envy Sculpting Lipstick – Intense Nude:
The Color: Surprise!! Surprise!! Me picking up a N*de shade!! Yes, the only N*de shade I own is Mac Meher. But I wanted to have one which would be inbetween a n*de and an MLBB. This one fits in perfectly. Described as a “mid tone rosy neutral” –the lip colour is bang on to balance a smokey eye look or just the shade for office wear. I am sure Office goers will love this shade – it is perfect balance of colour and neutrality – giving rich luminous finish.
Texture – Texture is definitely consistent across the line – light-weight, and creamy. The lipstick glides smoothly on the lips giving rich colour payoff. There is absolutely no tug or pull, no bleeding or feathering, no dryness. The colour hugs the lips, sculpting them perfectly, without accentuating fine lines. It was hydrating and very comfortable to wear.
Pigmentation – The lipstick gives full colour deposit in 1 swipe – hiding all lip pigmentation.
Lasting Power:Just as Company claims, the shade gives 6 hours of wear. The lipstick does not leave a stain, which is not surprising considering the colour.
To sum this up for you:

I think Estee Lauder Envy is definetly one of the best lipstick formulas out there. You really do have to try it to believe it. Do I recommend it? Yes! The shade would give sophistication to your look and is very elegantly understated. I hope I use this often and it doesn’t get relegated to the back of the drawer due to the lovely fuchsias and reds.
I’m also attaching a pic of my broken heart – Estee Lauder Envy Red Ego – or whats left of it thanks to my little one’s attempt at using it as a crayon!! I’m sooooo soooooo sooooo upset!
