Estee Lauder's Pure Color Envy Hi-Lustre Light Sculpting Lipstick has launched in Singapore, and if you're a lipstick junkie, you're probably aware of this already. The lipsticks are supposed to offer "lustrous colour" with "brilliant shine" according to the Estee Lauder website, so finally we have a product that's bucking the matte lips trend that I've been seeing on Instagram. I can't say that I have strong feelings one way or the other, though - as far as lip products go, I'm happy with anything that doesn't have huge chunks of glitter!


Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Hi-Lustre Light Sculpting Lipstick: The newest lipstick range launched in September

Estee Lauder's Pure Color Envy Hi-Lustre Lipsticks do have a pretty neat colour range, and in Singapore we'll be getting over 10 shades. I've swatched all 11 of them (yes I know that only 10 shades are lined up below, I found an extra shade to swatch after taking that photo), and I have to say, these are a range of very nice, wearable shades. We have a number of nudes and MLBB (My Lips But Better) shades, as well as some wearable reds and plums. The finish is nice as well, with a texture that isn't too heavy or thick, and feels moisturizing on lips, and a moist, subtle sheen that is pretty sophisticated - there isn't any overtly "oily"-looking shine or chunky-looking glitter.

So without further ado, let's start swatching!

Above, the first half of the shades - I went by shade number, so they're roughly in order from lightest to darkest.

Nude Reveal is a neutral nude pink shade that would look awesome on fair skintones. The nice thing about this nude shade is that it doesn't lean too orangey or warm, so it looks more like a pink-beige rather than a weird bandaid-y pale beige.
Power Mode is a neutral pink MLBB for fair to light skintones. This one leans slightly cool. It's very pretty, and definitely a very wearable shade.
Fierce Flower is a coral shade that's pretty wearable, and leans warm.
Pretty Lucky is a neutral muted red shade. If you're looking for a wearable red, this is a great place to start, as the pigmentation on this is pretty buildable. It's less orange and warm-leaning than Fierce Flower, and is a true neutral.
Pretty Shocking is also a red-based shade, but this one actually has some pink thrown in, and is cooler-toned than either Fierce Flower or Pretty Lucky. I think this is a great wearable pink-red for cooler-toned ladies (although I'm pretty sure some warm-toned girls can pull this off too!)
Hot Chills is a warm muted red shade. It's just a hair browner than Fierce Flower.

Sheer Sin, is, as you might guess from the name, a sheer-ish muted medium pink shade. Again, this one is going to be quite universally flattering for fair-to-light skintones.
Drop Dead Red is a lovely true neutral fire engine red, and in my opinion, is perhaps the red that "pops" the most out of all the red-based shades. So if you're looking for a more intense red, this is the one to go for.
Bad Angel is a medium warm nude with a hint of coral. It's actually a very pretty shade for warmer-toned ladies.
Thrill Seeker is one of my favourites of the range, and is a pinky-plume shade that leans cool. It's slightly bright, but still very wearable.
Sly Ingenue is also another one of my favourites, and this was the shade I ended up going home with! It's a plum shade, but not a vampy one - it's still very much plum rather than near-black. This is another great shade for the cool-toned ladies!

Across the range, the pigmentation was good, and was buildable. The first swipe might not give the intense "Pow" colour you expect, but a couple of swipes will give you very good pigmentation. So if you have, say, a red shade, you could vary the intensity with more or less swipes. Each of the swatches was about 2 swipes, so it's a good idea of what the pigmentation would look like when worn on the lips.
