Here are the Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipsticks in the colors 440 Irresistible and 490 Confident I got as freebies from an order a few months ago.
All pictures taken in natural light without flash.
EL used to have better packaging for their freebie lipsticks, just the average sized plastic twist-up tubes really but is still much smaller and better-looking than these giant square plastic tubes. Yes, yes, they're freebies so I should shut up and stop complaining.
Holy cow, these are really pigmented lipsticks! Despite swatching with some translucency, they're both completely opaque on my lips with a soft matte finish. The sheen in the swatch photo doesn't show up on me at all. Aside from the pigmentation that scares me off a bit, I don't really like the formula either. It's smooth and creamy but isn't anywhere near moisturizing enough for my dry lips. Both colors ended up going straight to my mum-in-law.
- 440 Irresistible: mauve with brown undertone.
- 490 Confident: bright magenta.
