Daily Luxe: Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick in POTENT

Not too long ago, Estee Lauder launched a well-curated lipstick range that’s packed with stunning shades that do nothing but “immortalize the mystique and dynamism of a woman”. I thought — WOW. That must be some superstar kind of a lippie!

With a hue so delicate and pristine looking, what else is to love about my Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick in Potent?

This lippie’s mostly light-medium and peachy-coral with a tinge of pink and warm undertones. It sounds complex really but it’s more of a fun nude for a morena like me. It’s very shiny and luminous, almost like gloss but stays on like lipstick. The coverage and pigmentation’s very opaque hence a little goes a long, long way. Since the color’s very bold and super shiny, smooth lips is a tall order else it will highlight flakiness and deep lines. The slip? Oh it slips like love at first sight! *swoon*

Each bullet from a roster of 16 provocative shades will set you back by Php 1700. Expensive? Compared to drugstore counterparts, yes. I like to think that it’s still less expensive to similar lippies of the same ante: YSL Corail Jalouse is tad brighter and leaning towards pink while Tom Ford Beauty Summer Fling (limited edition) is also darker but gives me the same look and feel. Plus, these counterparts are not locally available.
