Happy 2016 everyone! I hope you have a great year ahead.
I am a huge fan of any lipstick or lip gloss. A liquid lipstick I love the idea of, because I like the texture and softness of gloss and the pigmentation of lipstick. This particular formula (they say) is pigmented, none sticky, shiny, creamy, moisturising. It goes on wet like a lip gloss but lasts for up to 8 hours.
I have the shade Naughty Naive 230 which is a bold reddish pink with no sparkles or pearl.
First things first, the Envy Liquid Lip Potion comes in gorgeous packaging, in Estee Lauder’s typical deep blue – it feels expensive and looks elegant. I like the window on the side of the tube which means you an see what colour you have and how much is left easily.
I also like the applicator which is the right amount of firm and soft, it is slightly curved and fits into the corners of the lips easily. It allows for some precision which is important when the lip colour is so pigmented.
Texture wise, it is excellent. It does feel like a gloss but with a thicker texture – almost a tad mousse like. I do not like overly runny textures when the colours are so pigmented as it tends to get messy and go all over the teeth. It is extremely pigmented with just one swipe.
