Estee Lauder Musings & Sweet Crush Pure Color Envy Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Formula Overview $32.00/0.12 oz. – $266.67 Per Ounce The formula is supposed to have medium coverage with a lustrous finish. It took the Pure Color Envy formula and added shimmer to it with the end result varying from lightly pearlized to more frosted and near-metallic. The shimmer was finer in size, so the lipsticks did not feel gritty on the lips, and the particles didn’t migrate as the lipstick wore down. The coverage ranged from semi-sheer to nearly opaque, so…

Immortal Estee Lauder Immortal Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark orange-red with strong, warm undertones and a natural sheen. The lipstick yielded good color coverage in a single stroke, which built up to full coverage with less than a second layer. The texture felt lightweight, lightly creamy without being too slippery, and adhered evenly to my lips and didn’t emphasize my lip lines. It stayed on nicely for five and a half hours, left…

Estee Lauder Mind Game, Spellbound, Passion Pure Color Matte Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Mind Game Estee Lauder Mind Game Pure Color Matte Sculpting Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium brown with subtle, warm, rosier undertones and a satin finish. It had a smooth, lightly creamy consistency that felt less velvety compared to most shades in the range–more of a true satin, so there was a bit of slip–and had excellent adherence for an even lay down of opaque coverage in a single layer. It stayed on nicely for five hours…

Estee Lauder Deep Secret & Demand Pure Color Matte Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Estee Lauder Deep Secret Pure Color Matte Sculpting Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deep burgundy with cooler undertones and a satin finish. It was less of a true matte until an hour or two into wear, which was when the light sheen seemed to fade away. I also felt like there was a hint of very fine shimmer that ran through it. It had good color coverage in a single layer, but didn’t apply as evenly as I…

It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, which applied fluidly and smoothly over my lips without tugging. The texture was slightly dense, not too firm, and felt velvety as I applied it, but it wasn’t heavy and didn’t seem slippery during wear. I’d recommend exfoliating prior to wearing it if…

Feel Good Makeup – Makeup and Beauty Blog – Beauty Article

Good morning, friend. If you’re struggling right now, I’m right there with you. Nothing personally devastating happened this week (knocks on wood), but the realness of the new world order is sinking in, and it’s manifesting itself in an ever-present tightness in my body. Like many people around the world right now, I feel the weight of an uncertain future, and it’s heavy. 🙁 I keep replaying a memory of something I did with Connor a month ago… Wow, it…

A Springy Purple and Orange Makeup Look Inspired By Purple Rain – Beauty Article

When the Purple One inspires your look The first time I saw Purple Rain I was eight, and it was at my friend Peachy’s slumber party. Peachy’s mom let us pick out whatever movie we wanted at the video store (this was right after she took us to Chuck E. Cheese, of course, where I killed it at ski ball), and I’m 100% positive she had no idea what the movie was about when she rented it. Even though none…

Love ya, NARS Kalahari! They say, if you love something, set it free, which I guess makes sense if you love butterflies or toucans, but in the case of makeup, if you love something, I say you should talk about it ALL THE TIME, which is why I’ve been raving about NARS Kalahari for years! Kalahari eyeshadow duo is perfect for lightly defining your lids. One side is a shimmery rosy bronze, and the other side is a shimmery taupe…

5-Minute Makeup: Bright Berry Lips and Glowing Taupe Lids – Beauty Article

Yes, Bay Area people will wear scarves and thermals when it’s 63 degrees outside. 😂 So…you know those mornings when everything goes smoothly, and you even have extra time to do a load of laundry or stop by the drive-through coffee shop to get a latte before you start your day? On top of that, you also get to work 15-minutes early (so you don’t have to drive around the block two times to find good parking)? Yeah…this was not…

Estee Lauder Oblivious, Knockout Nude, Secret Life Pure Color Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Oblivious Estee Lauder Oblivious Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a lighter, rosy beige with subtle, warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-opaque color payoff that applied fairly evenly, but it was one of the less-flattering shades in the formula I’ve tried. The color sank into my lip lines a bit, and the product seemed more prone to highlighting imperfections of my lip texture. The lipstick itself felt lightly creamy, emollient without being slippery,…

In a single layer, it had nearly opaque color payoff that stayed on nicely for four and a half hours while the formula felt hydrating over time. Top Dupes Formula…

Neon Lights: 3 Colorful Looks – Beauty Article

The three colorful looks in this post have a couple things in common. I wore them all to preschool drop-off in the last few days (the pink look at the top was from this morning!). I did all of them using the $29 LORAC Neon Lights palette . As long as you have a bright blue, a hot pink, a bright orange and a yellow…and in the Neon Lights palette, that yellow is more of a goldenrod, which I’m kind…
