Estee Lauder 210 Impulsive Pure Color Envy Lipstick was an Impulsively Delicious Treat.

I am a big fan of speed shopping.  Before I leave my house, I know exactly what stores to hit and what items to buy–I do not linger.  Such was the case this weekend when I visited one particular cosmetic counter.  Perfume ladies, makeup artists with the promise of “free makeovers” or counter sales associates with their endless “free gifts” could not distract/deter me from purchasing Estee Lauder 210 Impulsive Pure Color Envy Lipstick ($30 USD/ 3.5g).  This tantalizing pink hue was just too darn pretty to resist!

The Pros to Estee Lauder 210 Impulsive Pure Color Envy Lipstick:

  1. Stunning warm pink shade.
  2. Smooth application and wear.
  3. Nice moisturizing formula..lips never felt dry even when the color wore-off.
  4. Opaque formula covers pigmented lips very well.
  5. Wears off evenly without the dreaded ring around the mouth.
  6. Can be worn lightly or heavily depending on your mood.
  7. Color does not feather or bleed into fine lines without a lipliner.
  8. Very comparable in texture to Tom Ford Lipsticks (reviewed here), IMHO these wear better than TF and are $19 cheaper 🙂
  9. Exceptional magnetic closure.
  10. Navy/gold packaging has a nice weight with edges that are smooth and feminine.
  11. Pairs beautifully with MAC Pro Longwear Lipliner in Nice n Spicy for extended wear.
  12. Can be layered nicely over an existing layer without looking and feeling caky.
  13. Delicate brown sugar scent which is imperceptible after 2 minutes.
  14. 21 colors in the line-up.
  15. Formulated without parabens or mineral oil.

The Cons to Estee Lauder 210 Impulsive Pure Color Envy Lipstick:

  1. Lasted three hours on its own.  A long-wearing lip pencil is needed to give this moisturizing formula extended wear.
  2. The lipstick takes on a matte/satin finish with an additional layer (I like the look, some may not).
  3. Incredibly long ingredient list.
  4. No other cons…I love this color.

Estee Lauder 210 Implusive Pure Color Envy Lipstick with MAC Nice N Spicy Lipliner.

Impulsive applies like butter.  This warm pink shade covers my pigmented lips completely and compliments olive and medium skin tones perfectly.  Darker skinned beauties could wear this color with the right lip liner, resembling a more mod lip look (groovy).

When paired with Make Up For Ever Waterproof Lip Pencil in 2C, the resulting color lasted 4 hours without any eating or drinking.  The addition of this rosy nude lipliner gave Impulsive some depth and toned down the brightness.

The above photos show how Impulsive’s glossy texture changes into more of a satiny finish as the color wears throughout the day.  If I were to have added an additional layer, the color would have resembled a smooth satin/matte finish.  Truth be told, reapplication was a complete pleasure.  The addition of MAC Nice ‘n’ Spicy gave Impulsive a lovely brown undertone that lasted for five hours.

THE VERDICT:  If makeup could talk what would it say?

Makeup would tell you if you are in the market for a moisturizing, pigmented, smooth, and heavenly formula, then look no further than Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Lipsticks.  150 Decadent (reviewed here) was just as smooth, but for some reason, I found 210 Impulsive to be more pigmented and have more of a polished feel.  I found the color extremely versatile when paired with a variety of lipliners.  Impulsive was a wonderful find and so appropriate for this time of year.  Spring is definitely in the air and my lips need to dress the part.  Be well and stay safe.

  1. Excellent review! May I ask what color eye shadow you’re wearing on your inner lids? Might that be MAC Patina? It looks like it but better … I must know! 😉 Lovely makeup job!

    • Hello Dini,

      Thank you so much. The eyeshadow colors I wore on that day were Burberry Pale Barley all over the lid and Burberry Khaki on the outer portion. Dampening a pencil brush slightly with water, I applied Pale Barley to the inner corners–just to intensify the color a bit. MAC Patina is very similar to PB, but I find MAC shadows develop a hard pan when they are used wet. I hope that helps.

  2. Loved your review, I’m planning on checking these out. So far my favorite lippie is the givenchy matte ones. Would you be able to give a break down of the face mu?

    • Hello N.S,
      I’m so happy you liked the review. Impulsive is a great color and the formula is wonderful. I need to check-out those Givenchy lipsticks. For face makeup, the foundation is The Climate Control Mineral Tint from Rae Cosmetics in 25 (review coming soon). The concealer is Estee Lauder Maximum Coverage Foundation in 03 (the tiniest dot), followed by MAC Radiant Rose Highlighter Pen (small amount). The blush is Giorgio Armani #10 Beige, the bronzer is MAC MSF Natural in Medium Deep, and the highlighter is MAC Play It Proper (discontinued), however, Thebalm Cindy-Lou Manizer could be a substitute. I hope this helps.

  3. Your analysis of this product is right on target! My favorite lipstick is Estee Lauder Insolent Plum, and I am so happy that someone else shares the same thoughts (I could not resist posting this comment)! I am a big fan of the Tom Ford lipsticks, but they are just so darned expensive.

    • Hello Sherri,
      I love Insolent Plum; my husband commented that should be my next shade (he was with me when I tried on the colors). Tom Ford’s formula is very similar, but I too, find the price point over-the-top. Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Lipsticks are better in terms of quality and value. Thank you for stopping by and commenting.
