Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick in Insolent Plum

I am very new to Estée Lauder, so new in fact that this lipstick is my first foray into the brand...

I had been eyeing up this lipstick for a few months but kept passing it up due to the £25 price tag but that's where the wonders of Christmas come in as I woke up to this beauty lovingly wrapped under the tree from my other half. He must have seen me drooling over it so boyfriend points to him!

The Pure Color Envy lipsticks are known for their opacity and I had seen so many reviews over the formula itself that I couldn't help but want every shade imaginable but the one that definitely had my name over it was the Insolent Plum - a beautiful deep wine plum (think the high end sister of MAC's Rebel).

With 30 shades to choose from, Estée Lauder really caters to everyones individual style and brings something for everyone (or you could collect them all and be naughty). I adore the formula of this and not only find it easy to apply but also find that it is truly opaque in one swipe with the most amazing colour pay off and a pretty great lasting time; around 6-7 hours on my lips.

The shape of the lipstick is designed to hug the curves of the lips helping application glide on smoothly, evenly and buttery soft! It is also formulated with a special time-released Moisture Complex to lock in moisture and leave your lips feeling comfortable and silky for hours.

Can we just talk about how incredible this colours is?! There are so many gorgeous shades to choose from and I could feel this becoming a slight addiction... Bad Estée Lauder, Bad!

Have you tried any of the Color Envy lipsticks? What are your thoughts?
