Joan Smalls x Estée Lauder | 11 Shades of Pure Color Envy Lipstick
How could anyone forget Joan Smalls violet lip from last year's Met Gala that gave us all lipstick envy? Luckily for us we can now recreate the same violet shade ourselves, as Smalls has teamed up with Estée Lauder to release the famous hue and 11 other shades as a special collection. Yet another sign of the times, Smalls and Estée Lauder joined forces for the special collection after a plethora of Instagram hashtags and engagement prompted the initiative.
The Pure Color Envy Lipstick collection ranges from soft nudes and pinks to neon bold deep colors, and is rounded out by the trademark purple shade that started it all: "Shameless Violet." Wondering how to wear these shades? "It's all about self-expression, just go with your heart and your mood. If you don't want to go as bold, pat it down with a tissue and use it as a tint. Smalls' collection with Estée Lauder will be a permanent addition to the cosmetic company's collection, giving you the peace of mind that you can always re-up on Shameless Violet when the time comes.
