Review: Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Lipstick in Dynamic
The make up community has had a bit of a buzz over these Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy lipsticks lately, and so even though I have never had a single cosmetic product from Estee Lauder work out well for me, I ordered one to try. I was reasonably impressed - it does not suck. The color is rich; this particular shade, dynamic, is a ripe rosy pink with a hint of peachy-red undertones. It lasts a pretty long time (4 hours on me, through eating and drinking) and is fairly comfortable. I did find it slightly drying but not egregiously so. Here's what I don't care for, though: it emphasized my lip lines. Settled right into them. The reason is that it has all that pigment but not enough slip to keep it plumped up. That's why I love Givenchy Le Rouges - they are plenty slippery and plenty pigmented, and so even though they are matte, they are very flattering and comfortable to wear. I won't be trading in my Le Rouges for Estee Lauder anytime soon.
