One Swipe, Multiple Me | Clozette

No one woman can ever be satisfied with owning one colour because we need them for different occasions, different functions and for different outfits. Sometimes you just want to go nude, go light, or go heavy. It all depends on the mood.


I am so glad that Estée Lauder has now come out with 12 different shades of NEW Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion.




Before I introduce you to the colors, let me first share the benefits of the NEW Pure Color Envy Liquid with a little input of my own review.

The moisture-rich formula and satiny texture makes application so much smoother because it glides smoothly onto the lips and lips will look instantly fuller and curvy. I like how rich the colours are with just a single application and I did not even have to touch up the colors after 6-8 hours as it has long-wearing properties that helps to maintain the richness of the colours -  Estée Lauder's Advanced True Vision Technology contains "Concentrated Liquid" structural pigments which creates rich colour, definition and volume.

Lips also remained soft throughout the day and this unique formula is also infused with red currant, mandarin orange and apple blossom. This scent brought Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion to another level of sophistication.



Our lips can crack when it comes to cold weather or dry lips. And this is where Time Release Encapsulated Moisture Complex with Hyaluronic Acid comes into place. Found in Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion, it has the ability to keep you lips moisturized and hydrated with the attract, capture and seal-in continuous hydration. This complex is made up of Avocado Oil, Jojoba Oil and Sunflower Oil.

Some of you may find applying lip colour with a brush too messy but application has never been so precise with this because of the new, slanted and curved tip application which is designed to glide on effortlessly. I even gave lip liner a missed because the curved tip of the applicator can line the lips well, making it look define and volumized.

Now.. The packaging.. Sleek and classy.

As mentioned, there are 12 colours in total.


Nudes and browns: Naked Ambition, Extreme Nude, Bitter Sweet

Corals and reds: Fierce Beauty, Cold Fire, Lethal Red, Strange Bloom

Pinks and berries: Not So Innocent, Pierced Petal, Wicked Sweet, Naughty Naive, Quiet Riot

Mauves and plums: Vague Obsession, Fragile Ego, True Liar, Savage Garden





I have chosen 3 colors that I feel elevate the various roles in my daily life. Here goes!



For a sweet date with my boyfriend or a dinner with my girlfriends, I will prefer to go light but with visible colours still. In my boyfriend’s opinion, he feels that a light shade of pink like the Fierce Beauty best projects that young innocent side of me with a slight tinge of tenderness. Always reminding him of the feeling when we first! My choice was: Fierce Beauty – #04.





My job revolves around clinical research & more laboratory work, thus saving me the need to be in fanciful outfits. Nonetheless, looking presentable at work is still a must for me. Hence, a more subtle shade of pink would match the professional image I pursue in this aspect. 




Furthermore, I appreciate the practicality of Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion in fighting against the cold & dry environment within the lab with its extra boost of hydration to the lips. Vague Obsession - #12 to the rescue! 





How about the blogging events which I have to attend at night which is always filled with beautiful people? What shade can I summon to look more outstanding & confident amidst the crowd? 




The Lethal Red - 06 is definitely the one to go for! The red shade never fails to give that extra boost of confidence and mature feminine demeanor. Almost like sending out a subtle message to the others around: “Don’t try intimidating me, I know exactly what I want & I will go all out to pursue it passionately!”




This explains why it is my favourite among the three! Furthermore, I like the fact that it is easy to apply on & gives a even spread upon application. 


NEW Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion will be available at Estée Lauder counters including ION Orchard Boutique from August 2015 at SGD46 each.

With today’s fast paced lifestyle and exposure to environmental aggressors, I keep myself healthy and strong by incorporating a daily morning routine into my lifestyle. It’s easy and I reap the benefits all day long. 


My morning routine consists of light yoga. I have recently picked up yoga because of the health benefits I have heard. From increased strength to flexibility to heart health, there are so many benefits to rolling out the mat. Due to my busy schedule, I do yoga at home. Studies have proven that women who exercise in the morning sleep better at night. I totally agree!




After the yoga session, I would then detox with a cup of lemon water. Lemons are packed with nutrients, including vitamin C, B-complex vitamins, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, and fiber. Lemon juice can be hard on the enamel of your teeth hence it’s important to dilute it with water of any temperature. I drink it first thing in the morning, and then wait 15 to 30 minutes to have breakfast. I usually get my breakfast fix of muesli or fruits. 





Besides keeping fit and having sufficient nutrients intake, it is essential to have a morning beauty routine, which is why I incorporated Estée Lauder’s latest Nutritious Vitality8 Collection comprising of the Radiant Dual-Phase Emulsion and Radiant Moisture Crème into my daily skincare routine. Packed with all the goodness of Pomegranate, I was so excited when I got hold of the range. Besides tasting so good, are you aware of the benefits this wonder fruit has? Being a nutrient dense, antioxidant rich fruit, it is known as a symbol of health, fertility and eternal life. It not only lowers both blood pressure and cholesterol, it is also believed to relieve or protect against depression and osteoporosis too. Health benefits aside, it is also good for the skin. It helps to hydrate dry skin, combat inflammation from acne breakouts, protect against sun and environment and last but not least stimulate collagen production. 




For mornings, my favorite products to use are the Nutritious Vitality8 Radiant Dual-Phase Emulsion (S$92) and the Nutritious Vitality8 Radiant Moisture Crème (S$92). As both are similar moisturizers with different textures, I alternate the usage on different days. 





The Radiant Moisture Crème comes in a plastic tub with a screw off cap. There is also a seal to keep the cream fresh. The light consistency of the cream enables the cream to be fully absorbed into the skin within seconds without that sticky or greasy texture. I was able to apply makeup immediately after. The Radiant Dual-Phase Emulsion on the other hand had a texture very similar to water because it’s so light! I was particularly drawn to the sweet smelling fragrance of both products. 







In addition, it actually gave my skin the radiance and brightening effect it required without compromising on hydration. I used this after returning from my Hong Kong trip where I became a lot darker and surprisingly I went back to my original skin tone probably even fairer than before. It helped vastly with the sun burnt situation on my neck as well. 








If you aren’t convinced yet, you should! According to Estée Lauder, 100% of women who used these products said their skin felt softer and looked more energized in just 8 days. What’s your morning routine like? Tell us your secrets!
