The Color Envy Collection is a cult favorite featuring a variety of versatile finishes including metallic, matte vinyl and a few limited edition shades. The smooth, velvety formula drenches your pout in dramatic, multidimensional color with scintillating shine.
The metallic effect is to die for! It glides on bold and seductive for full-coverage intensity and plumping luminosity. My lips feel cushioned, hydrated and comfortable and as long as you aren’t eating or drinking, the pigment stays put relatively well. The lipstick isn’t transfer proof (very few lip products are) but a few touch-up throughout the day is a small price to pay for amazing color and smooth application.
What I like most about this collection (aside from the vibrancy) is the incredible color spectrum. There is something for every skin tone, occasion and style preference. I was drawn to the alluring wine, red and rose gold tones for evening wear but there are also neutrals, brights and classic hues.
The metallics are creamy and rich while the matte finish is light, fluid and long-wear with a bit of staining and less moisture. You can’t go wrong no matter which shade you choose and the nourishing blend of avocado, jojoba, sunflower and castor oil keeps your skin healthy and soft.
