Have you ever tried Purple Lipstick? I’m quite experimental when it comes to lip colors but if its one shade that intimidates me, its Purple! It can be incredibly tricky to carry and can make you look really dull if not worn right. I generally stick to safe, pink tinged purples but when I came across Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Matte Sculpting Matte Lipstick in Extrovert, I had to give it a try!
Extrovert is a super intense, bluish purple with a soft satin finish. The texture is smooth and reasonably creamy but you might need two passes to get a completely opaque, even color. I like to blot it down to a dry, stained finish to avoid any bleeding and smudging otherwise it can be a difficult color to wear and maintain. The color is a true, dark purple with no hints of pink so it looks pretty gothic and intense on the lips. The formula feels quite comfortable and doesn’t dry out the lips.
If this purple isn’t your cup of tea, you can still check out this range for the lovely pinks and reds.
The Envy Matte range would be available across counters in India October onwards.
