ESTEE LAUDER PURE ENVY LIPSTICK in REBELLIOUS ROSE
15 December 2014
This is the only item I got in my attempted Duty Free Shopping. I wanted more but there were not much shades available. I was actually impressed that there is a shopping centre in the ship. I was like a moth to a flame when I spotted the cosmetic store on board and clapped my hands in glee when I saw Pure Envy lipsticks. I wanted Defiant Coral but it's sold out so I resigned with Rebellious Rose which is a gorgeous rosy pink suitable for work and everyday look. (screams me!)
The formula of this lipstick is a.m.a.z.i.n.g! Ok here's my best attempt at describing it: it hugs your lips and the colour payoff is incredible. It's creamy when you apply it but it doesn't move on lips like what MAC cremesheen would do. It's incredibly light on the lips, no stickiness feeling, no tightening feel to it as it sets and no offensive smell. It's very creamy but it's not sticky/greasy.
If you want just one lipstick in your life, this could be it! Not the shade per se but this range because it's worth your money and for sure you will enjoy wearing it over and over again.
I would try to get more shades online somewhere in US or maybe get those Christmas gift packs they have currently in store because this baby is about AU$50 each which is a lot for someone like me who likes collecting lipsticks like a pro hoarder. Currently, my monies are still on Defiant Coral and/or Tumultuous Pink. It will be mine one day.
Here's some throwback photo when I first used it while on the cruise.
Hope you're all set on presents and shopping!
If not then happy shopping! xx
