Estee Lauder Pure Envy Shine Sculpting Lipstick

1 min read

Spring summer beauty means sheer lips, agreed? There seems to be a sort of unwritten rule somewhere that when the sun comes out (even just a wee bit) we should all forgo our matte lipsticks for something sheer. I’m not buying that as a ‘must-do’ beauty rule, written or not. I love a good matte too much.

But, sometimes a wee bit of sheer lipstick is all you might need, and Estee Lauder’s new Pure Colour Envy Shine Sculpting Lipstick (£25), which is a sheer version of their Sculpting Lipstick.


It’s a lovely lipstick – a sheer that really isn’t overly sheer – you still get colour! And you get hydration.My lips felt super-soft with this on. There are 16 shades of the sheer lipsticks, from brights to nudes, corals to pinks and berry shades.

And there are also five new Limited-Edition Pure Color Envy Shine Nail Lacquers (£14.50), available to complement the lipsticks. These sheer, bright luminous hues have gorgeous shine. I have been earing Empowered, a bright coral-red, this week and I love it. Perfect for Valentine’s Day!

The new Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick and Nail Lacquers are available from March, but you can get them from February 16 at, or Selfridges.
