Does it Work?

ELLE Review: Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Shine

High shine, but maybe a bit much?

I tried the Blossom Bright shade, which is a lovely cherry-red that I had to keep from trying to eat. It's one of 16 hues that form this new collection of corals, nudes, and berry brights. The lipstick glides on easily and stays put for two hours at least even though I’m a chronic lip-licker. It is high-shine like it promises – more shimmery than lush – though if there is indeed a sculpting effect the formulation creates, I missed it altogether. The waxy feeling it left on my lips, I did not much like.

Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Shine, Rs 2,300. Available at Estée Lauder stores around India.
