Review: Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Shine in Mischievous Rose

I’ve had this lipstick for a few months now. At that time, Estee Lauder launched its new line of lipstick in the US and Europe – Pure Color Envy Sculpt. I was quite excited to try those pigmented lipsticks, but found out that in Asia, we get a different version. We get the Pure Color Envy Shine. I don’t know the difference, to be honest. I don’t have a Pure Color Envy Sculpt to compare. However, from pictures and reviews online, these are definitely different, not just the name.


EL Envy Shine


As most of you know, I’ve been feeling sick for the past few months, and I’ve only started feeling better in the last month or so. I didn’t wear much makeup, which explains the lack of makeup reviews lately. I was sent Mischievous Rose, a pale nude mauve on my lips. I tried the lipstick on without any other makeup, and I thought the colour was too nude for me. However, when I put on foundation, some mascara and blush, this lipstick actually looked like a pink nude. Go figure. Must be my skin sallowness.

The lipstick goes on smooth and creamy and it remained emolient on my lips. It doesn’t feel oily or sticky like a balm, but it gives my lips a layer of smooth protection. This light colour doesn’t stay on for too long, and it doesn’t last an Asian meal at all. I can’t really tell if it leaves a lip ring either, because it’s hard to tell with nude. I can tell you however, that this lipstick has grown on me. At first, I wasn’t too sure about it, but the more I wear it, the more I like it! I have yet to go to an Estee Lauder counter to check out the shade range, and I should do that soon. If you’re a lipstick fiend, you might already have tried this. What do you think? This is how it looks on my lips. I’ve worn it a couple of times on the blog too.

I think the photo above is the most overused, but I’m just too lazy to take another photo. SORRY! These are permanent and retail for RM98, so there’s no hurry like limited edition items. Paris wrote a review a while back, and she has a brighter colour to show you –> link here. Did you get any?
