Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Shine Sculpting Shine Lipstick in "Suggestive": Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: Product featured was provided for review.
The original Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipsticks from Estee Lauder released last year were one of my favorite lip products of all time so I was super excited when a high-shine version of the lipsticks were released for Spring 2015. The Pure Color Envy Shine Sculpting Lipstick ($34 CAD) features a pigmented, creamy and high-shine formulation that truly hugs the lips to accentuate the curves of the lips. So how do these compare to the original formulation? Read on to find out.......
Much like the original Pure Envy Sculpting Lipsticks, the Pure Color Envy Shines come in sleek dark blue and gold tubes with a snazzy magnetic closure. However the Shine lipstick does feature a thinner, taller bullet with a flattened tip.

Suggestive is a light coral pink with subtle silver and gold shimmers. The pigmentation is very sheer and I was quite surprised that the finish is not that shiny. It has a nice sheen but definitely not "high-shine". The formulation is very moisturizing and lightweight but the wear time is short, at least for this shade.

These are moisturizing sheer lipsticks with a natural sheen. Compared to the original Color Envy Sculpting Lipsticks, which were rich and pigmented, these are quite disappointing but if you are a fan of lightly tinted lip colors, then you may enjoy these.

Estée Lauder is available online and in stores at Murale, The Bay and Sephora.
