I’m a make-up geek and especially this summer I want to focus more on my lips by adding a lot of color to them while keeping the eye make-up (that takes more time) more light. I’ve searched a while for something long lasting, but also very pigmented and very comfortable. After trying on so many matte liquid lipsticks that dry the lips and then look super smudged, I saw that Estée Lauder has launched the Pure Color Envy liquid lipsticks collection and decided to give them a try, because I love so many of Estée Lauder products. I gave them a try in the burning sun of Rome and wore the matte one for an entire day on wandering the beautiful Italian streets, drinking espresso, eating lunch. Well, I was surprised to see that it is very long lasting and also nourishing at the same time. That is really unexpected for a matte liquid lipstick. It lasted more than 1o hours with little touch-ups just because I love reapplying it so much and then I have changed it for their vinyl textured one, that was also amazing. I wore that one during the evening for a touch of shine and it lasted all night. It made the lips look bigger, fuller and with that touch of glam without looking too wet like a gloss.
The shades I have picked for Pure Color Envy are Pierced Petal for the matte one, which is a bright fuchsia, perfect for summer. The vinyl one is Lava Flow, a gorgeous bright red, also perfect for summer because it has some orange undertones, making it more lively that go hand in hand with the shiny texture.
During these hot summer days, I also like wearing peachy blushes that make me look fresh.Pure Color Envy Sculpting Blush from Estée Lauder it’s the perfect choice for a healthy-looking glow. The Advanced True Vision technology combined with cranberries and Goji extract, known for their antioxidant properties, provide long-lasting brightness and durability.
