Estée Lauder: Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick - Defiant Coral. A Guest Post from Lorrrrrrrrraine!

You know what we haven't had around here in a while? A visit from a Fancy Face, let's remedy that, shall we? Thanks for popping by Lorraine of John, It's Only Makeup, what have you got for us today?
Did I need another coral lipstick? Er, maybe not. Did I need another coral lipstick in the new Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting formula? YES. Hey, I probably wouldn't have turned down a lime green from the range. 
The lipsticks are blend of all the best bits you want - longevity, comfort, moisture and high colour. 

How'd they do it? I'd imagine the zillion years and billions of eurobux that Lauder can pour into research helps, but the nitty gritty is a premium selection of ingredients. Hyaluronic acid keeps things looking and feeling smooth, while buckets of pigment and bonding agents make for full-on colour that lasts.
And, even though it's bursting at the seams with fantabulosity, it doesn't feel like it. The texture is light, creamy and totally comfortable. Blindfold me and I'd think I was wearing a balm.
Defiant Coral: €29

Defiant Coral, is the one that Cherry Sue gave to me. It's not a true coral - orange tones are low and there's a dusty pink element that makes it much more wearable. 
It's not cheap, but there's no compromise in quality. A great lipstick, packaged in sleek and sturdy casing - it's luxe in every way.
