Love for Lipsticks:
Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Shine Lipstick | S$45 Each | Wearing a beautiful shade of lipstick can transform a person’s looks as well as their moods. Other than picking out the right shade to match your eye makeup, occasion and clothes to create the perfect mood for the perfect occasion, a good lipstick has to be hydrating as well so it doesn’t dry out your lips. Too dry and your lips crack, too hydrating and the color doesn’t last. The perfect balance has to be achieved and so I put Estee Lauder’s Pure Color Envy Shine Lipsticks to the test!
The line comes in 16 gorgeous shades, carefully selected and exclusively designed for asian women and I had the luxury to try a quarter of them. The box packaging looks similar to any other of Estee Lauder’s lipsticks with their dark blue color palette. However, once opened reveals a sleek, elegant tube of lipstick. With an innovative, magnetic closure that always clicks the case perfectly, it feels super luxurious to use it. I absolutely love the packaging so there really isn’t much to say about it.

Sometimes, swatching lipsticks on the back of the hand may not be the most accurate. Simply because the colour of our skin differs from our lips. Thus, I thought it was best to show you how these lipsticks looks like on my lips. Below shows how my natural lips look like. A little pale and if you look closely enough, you can see cracks in between – signs of dehydrated, dry lips.

Fairest is a neutral-mauve shade with a hint of bronze. It’s an alternative choice for dark eyes when the usual pale concealed lip is not in fashion anymore. It gives your lips colour without being too overboard. Charmed is also a neutral shade but with a pink undertone. It’s more of an everyday kind of lipstick that doesn’t ever goes out of style. With Charmed on your lips, you can even make do without the rest of your makeup and you’ll still look put together.

Pink Dragon is a toned-down barbie pink with a slight blue undertone. Which also means that it makes your teeth look whiter! Also, the colour makes you look younger and fresh-looked. Surreal Sun is more for the fun loving people who isn’t afraid to play around with bright colours. With a bright watermelon coral shade, this makes your lips pop, very appropriate for the spring and summer.
Although these lipsticks cost you S$45 a pop, however they are definitely worth it in my opinion. It’s a difficult balance to try and be hydrating yet be long lasting. But Estee Lauder’s new Envy Shiny lipsticks did just that. Being lipsticks, these are hydrating and doesn’t accentuate the flaws/cracks in my lips like some other lipsticks do. Also, the colours blend nicely to reveal a flawless pop of colour. Not forgetting about how luxurious and sleek the packaging is, the lipsticks are definitely pleasing to the eye in your makeup pouch as well. The ladies in the restroom will be green with envy when you whip out this baby to reapply!
