Estee Lauder Mind Game, Spellbound, Passion Pure Color Matte Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches
Estee Lauder Mind Game Pure Color Matte Sculpting Lipstick is a muted, medium brown with subtle, warm, rosier undertones and a satin finish. It had a smooth, lightly creamy consistency that felt less velvety compared to most shades in the range–more of a true satin, so there was a bit of slip–and had excellent adherence for an even lay down of opaque coverage in a single layer. It stayed on nicely for five hours and felt lightly hydrating over time.
Estee Lauder Spellbound Pure Color Matte Sculpting Lipstick is a slightly muted, medium pink with warmer undertones and a satin sheen. It had excellent color coverage in a single layer, which applied without tugging or dragging on my lips.
The consistency felt lightly creamy–more velvety than traditionally “wet” in feel–so it glided readily across my lips but had good adhesion and didn’t slide around during wear. There was a touch of product that sank into my deeper lip lines, which was noticeable in person after three hours of wear. It wore fairly well for five hours and felt lightly moisturizing over time.
Estee Lauder Passion Pure Color Matte Sculpting Lipstick is an eggplant purple with warmer, pink undertones and a satin sheen. It seemed to have fine, barely-there pearl that gave it a more luminous sheen than the matte finish I was expecting.
It had semi-opaque color coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly on my lips but didn’t adhere as readily to the inner area of my lips. The texture had some slip and felt wetter compared to most shades in the range, which have more of a velvety, silicone-like feel (not quite powdery but not traditionally creamy either). The color lasted well for six hours, left a faint stain behind, and felt lightly hydrating over time.
