Lipstick of the Month May – Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy in Intense Nude

So last month I launched a super simple, short and to the point series on the blog where each month I’ll chat about the lip product I’ve grabbed the most. I’m someone who really enjoys experimenting with lip color and textures – from matte, to gloss to balms. I have them all and enjoy adding to the collection. So, I launched the series with a review on the MAC Cremesheen Creme in Your Coffee and today I’m pulling out another favorite. Introducing Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy in Intense Nude. 

Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy in Intense Nude

I loved this product from the first time I used it simple because it is the most amazing shade! I think every girl needs a good nude lipstick that compliments her skin tone and I think I’ve really found my one. Maybe what immediately drew my attention was the packaging. Estee Lauder lipsticks are always in such pretty packaging that makes them look like the quite high price tag. The gold and dark blue combination is the signature Estee Lauder look!

I’d describe this as a “Rosy nude”. It’s a medium, muted plum with soft, warm undertones and a luminous finish. It isn’t a “true nude” in the sense but adds that dash of color sometimes needed without clashing with the rest of your makeup. To me, this colour is perfect for work or a casual look.


What I love the most about the product is that it is intensely hydrating. It almost feels like balm it’s so moisturizing and my lips never look dry when I’m wearing this lipstick. I took a look at Estee Lauder’s website and they describe the products as having a “Time-Release Moisture Complex helps capture and infuse hydration. “I’d say the formula is very creamy, fairly similar to the MAC Creme Sheen.

This range is very highly pigmented! I like that I can get good coverage immediately, you don’t have to apply several layers. The color is intense enough that you can get a bold look within seconds. The range is actually called “Sculpting” as it’s been formulated with multi-faceted pigments create definition. Lips look beautifully shaped, sculpted and curvaceous.

Price is R445.00 from Red Square

What do you think of Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy in Intense Nude and the price point – is this something you would purchase?
