Estee Lauder Genius, Unpredictable, Light Heart Illuminating Shine Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Genius (913)

Estee Lauder Genius (913) Pure Color Illuminating Shine ($32.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a muted, lighter red with subtle, warm undertones and a luminous finish. It had medium pigmentation in one layer, which could be built up to semi-opaque coverage with a second layer.

The texture was moderately emollient, creamy, and more balm-like, which made it comfortable to apply and to wear. Thankfully, it didn’t settle noticeably into my lip lines and gave my lips a smoother, plusher look. It wore well for four hours and felt moisturizing while worn.

Formula Overview

$32.00/0.06 oz. – $533.33 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “sheer to medium, buildable” coverage with “hydrating shine” while helping to “reduce fine, dry lines and lip flakiness.” The majority of the shades had more medium, buildable coverage that could be built up to nearly opaque coverage.

The lighter shades were the least forgiving and sometimes emphasized or gathered around lip lines and lip texture, while mid-tone and deeper shades often applied beautifully with even coverage and in a way that made my lips appear smoother and plusher. The consistency was lightweight with moderate slip and felt like a lipstick-lip balm hybrid as a result, and the finish was glossier and more luminous (without being overtly shimmery/pearly).

They were comfortable and hydrating to wear, though they were shorter-wearing due to the amount of slip, so most shades wore for three hours with a few of the richer and deeper shades lasting almost five hours on me. They had a sweet, vanilla-like scent but no discernible taste.

Unpredictable (914)

Estee Lauder Unpredictable (914) Pure Color Illuminating Shine ($32.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark red with warm, orange undertones and a luminous sheen. The texture was lightweight, creamy, and smooth with moderate slip, which helped it glide readily over my lips but it felt a little balm-like and less lipstick-like as it didn’t adhere as strongly.

It had semi-opaque color payoff that could be layered for full opacity, though this was more pigmentation than marketed. It lasted nicely for four and a half hours and felt hydrating over time.

Light Heart (917)

Estee Lauder Light Heart (917) Pure Color Illuminating Shine ($32.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a medium-dark copper with strong, warm orange undertones and a cream finish. This shade wasn’t quite as glossy in its finish as most shades in the range. The texture was lightweight, creamy, and smooth, which helped it apply comfortably across my lips without dragging.

It yielded nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, rather than the sheer coverage marketed, but those who don’t mind the boost in coverage likely will enjoy this shade. The color stayed on well for four and a half hours and felt moisturizing while worn.
