Review: New Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Matte Lipsticks and Pure Color Envy Liquid Lipsticks

Estee Lauder has released more additions to the Pure Envy lipstick line and they are right up my alley. One is a new matte texture and the other is a liquid lip formula. I am already a fan of the original Pure Envy lipsticks (see my review here), so I was happy to see the formula extensions. And in true Estee Lauder fashion, these shades are not shy in the least and I love that. There are a few neutral shades here and there, but on the whole these two launches pack a pigmented punch. Read on for my review of each, with little to no alliteration, I promise.
1. Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Matte Lipsticks in shades Covetous Nude, Volatile, Furious, Decisive Poppy, Unattainable and Neon Azalea (colors shown above from right to left): I love a matte lip. I love a richly pigmented lip. It was almost inevitable that I would love these lipsticks. The original Pure Color Envy formulation was creamy but gave a nice natural finish without any glossiness. I wasn't sure how dry these new ones would be but surprisingly they feel very similar. In fact, I had a hard time telling the two apart initially so I had to dig into my stash to compare. They are in fact different, yet the new matte texture is definitely a tad drier, but not nearly as dry as most matte lipsticks. In fact, this is one of the most comfortable matte formulations I have ever tried. It stays smooth on the lips hours after application and my lips feel comfortable the entire time while wearing. The color payoff is intense so I got more than 6+ hours of wear out of these and even when I removed with a tissue, my lips were stained. A good cleansing oil (I am loving this one and this one right now) is definitely needed to get these bad boys off, but with such a soft and smooth texture, I do not mind.
2. Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Liquid Lipsticks in Extreme Nude, Bitter Sweet, Pierced Petal, Naughty Naive and Quiet Riot (show above from left to right) - I have really come to love a liquid lipstick. I like the feel of them, how they apply and the fact that they are not glossy (long hair stuck in gloss is not a cute look). The applicator for this formula has a little dip in the middle for what I assume is designed to contour the lip. I found it was a bit too wide for my lips, so I used the tip to outline my lips and then fill them in. Because the Pure Envy lipsticks give such a full coverage, I expected the Liquid Lips to be equally as intense. However, they fall nicely in the middle giving just enough coverage to avoid any patchiness but still feel lightweight on the lips. Extreme Nude is absolutely stunning and one that I have worn a few times already. There is a slight sheen to the formula but nothing that resembles a gloss and only serves to make the lips look full and moisturized.
