Get Enviably Beautiful Lips With Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Shine Sculpting Lipstick

When I see a lipstick with moisturizing qualities, the first thing that comes to mind is “Ah, this must not be very pigmented”. That’s the typical trade-off, isn’t it? You get hydration at the cost of pigmentation and lipsticks that are more pigmented are usually very drying.

Armed with years of history in producing high quality luxury makeup, Estée Lauder unveils the NEW Pure Color Envy Shine Sculpting Lipsticks, which keep my lips moisturized without compromising color.

I tried on these Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Shine Sculpting Lipsticks with a very open mind (you know, bad experience with many others) and was BLOWN AWAY when they not only glided on my lips effortlessly, their pigmentation and longevity were impressive! WOWWW!!


Brilliant Shades Made For Asian Women

Exclusively developed to complement the natural beauty of Asian women, these 16 beautifully feminine shades are broken down into 4 categories – Nudes to Browns, Pinks to Berries, Corals to Red, Mauves to Plums, so you’ll definitely find a shade that suits you perfectly.

What am I talking about?!?! I doubt anyone can walk away with only one shade after getting to try first-hand just how amazingly comfortable and creamy these are on the lips without compromising color!

Read on for a MEGA GIVEAWAY!! You’re gonna go craaaazyyy!!! 😛

Surreal Sun

Beautiful and bright peachy-pink-coral. My favorite shade of the lot because it’s all bright and cheery and feminine at the same time. Love how it instantly brightens up my face! When I met up with a friend whom I haven’t met in a long while, the first thing she said was “OMG I LOVE YOUR LIP COLOR!!”. No ‘hello’. Lol.

Pink Dragon

Mauve, leaning pink. I like Pink Dragon a lot too. It’s a very wearable shade of pink, not too loud, but enough to make people notice the soft rosy effect it brings to your face.

Warm salmon, almost reddish-brown on me. This would make a very good lip color for a corporate environment. It doesn’t look too strong for a professional look, but enough to show that you have something on your lips to look put-together. This is that kind of shade that slowly grows on you. =)

Nude beige with a slight hint of coral. I’m not a fan of nudes and browns due to the strong yellow undertones in my skin which causes any nude and brown lipsticks to make me look pale and sickly. The ‘nudeness’ of Innocent is still bearable due to the warm orange undertones, but it’s not the kind of color I would reach out for. I love BRIGHT! BRIGHT! BRIGHT! =D But I know many people look great with nude lipsticks, especially when they want to play up the eyes more.

Their incredible color payoff is attributed to an Advanced True Vision Technology that uses innovative sculpted pigments to provide color that SCULPT your pout to make it look fuller and more dimensional.

Swatches for you!

Pure Hydration That Lasts

Most moisturizing lipsticks tend to have poor lasting power, but Estée Lauder’s new range of lipsticks are loaded with Hyaluronic Acid that attracts, capture and seal in moisture for long-lasting hydration.

I have a bad habit of pursing and licking my lips very often, but these lipsticks last me a good 4-5 hours, the brighter colors – Surreal Sun and Pink Dragon last longer on my lips.

I’m truly in love with the formula. Lightweight yet pigmented, not sticky or gooey, there was no feathering and I didn’t have to use a lipliner or lip brush to apply the lipstick – just straight from the bullet!

It’s like a magical formula that hugs my lips but doesn’t settle into the lines of my dry lips. If you want lips that look juicy and plump, you gotta get some of these Pure Color Envy Shine Lipsticks! =D

You Deserve To Shine

The Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Shine Sculpting Lipsticks truly work to illuminate and sculpt your lips and the result is a shine that speaks of sophistication and luxury.


Ultrachic Design

The chic, shiny, navy packaging is also Estée Lauder’s first redesign in more than 20 years. These hydrating and sculpting lipsticks are housed in an innovative, magnetic closure that clicks the cap shut.


Also, I bet you’ll open and close then open it again just to make it click back. When I’m using the mouse with my right hand, my left hand plays with the magnetic closure – open-close-open-close-open-close. Very therapeutic. HAHAHA.

Oozing sleekness and class in a slim, navy case, it’s like carrying a piece of luxury in your purse.


You can find the Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Shine Sculpting Lipstick Illuminate at all Estée Lauder counters in Singapore. Find out more info at the Estée Lauder official website!

About Bun Bun

Hello! My name is Juli and Bun Bun is my alter-ego. I blog to share my love for makeup, how to apply it, and what works or what doesn’t work, all from an Asian perspective.

My first makeup product was a shimmery light blue lipstick which I proudly wore all over my eyelids and lips. It cost $2.50, felt like $250, and made me feel like a million bucks.

Throughout this blog you will see Bun Bun in different poses.

Instead of using numbers (3/5, 4/5) or alphabets (B+, A+) to rate products, I put Bun Bun in different positions and expressions to represent the rating given to the product after a review.

In Bun-O-Meter, the first on the list would mean a 5/5 rating and the last one a 1/5 rating.

You can always refer to the sidebar any time you don’t understand what Bun Bun’s pose means.

I hope you enjoy reading my makeup and beauty posts as much as I did writing them.

Talk to you soon! =)

    I think Charmed looks really good on you!!! (Though from the colours you wear often, I think Surreal Sun is totally up your alley too. 8D)

  • BunBunMakeupTips

    kiradyn Thank you! Charmed is that kind of shade you know will work on most days. Surreal Sun is just <3 but it’s not an every day kind of shade. Heh.

  • BAMBIx

    That Charmed is so charmingggg. It is definitely the one I would pick up as I do not get used to bold lip color. 

    Oh, I have just came back from Singapore! So fun! I did not go many places though. LOL many people might have said that I and my boyfriend are too minimal, unlike those other Thais who go to Singapore .. (I mean I have seen someone posting their travel list on internet and I just think  WOW how could they go to all of these places within a couple of days?)

    But Surreal Sun is nice as well. Well, I may get a hand on these lipsticks 😛

  • BunBunMakeupTips

    BAMBIx Sorry for the late reply, dear! Aww you came to my homeland! Was it a stopover or you purposely flew to Singapore? 

    Hope you’ve managed to get your hands on these lipsticks! =)
