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.......
Packaging:
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.

Formulation:
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.

Overall:
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.

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