Estée Lauder’s Nighttime Rescue Lip Serum – It actually works!

Having suffered from dry lips for as long as I can remember, I have tried numerous lip balms, oils, and serums, all promising amazing results, based on recommendations from friends or product claims. However, I have always been left disappointed. That is, until I tried Estée Lauder’s Pure Color Envy Nighttime Rescue Lip Oil-Serum. At first, I was skeptical, but the results blew me away. This product has become a staple in my nighttime routine.

Quick & Lasting Results

One of the things that really sets Estée Lauder’s Pure Color Envy Nighttime Rescue Lip Oil-Serum apart from others I have tried is how quickly it works. My lips have never recovered so fast, and after just a few days of using this product, I could already feel a significant difference. The formula is incredibly hydrating and nourishing, and it feels like it really penetrates deep into the skin actually fixing the problem and not fueling it like many other lip balms I have tried. The lip oil serum doesn’t feel heavy or greasy on the lips. It absorbs quickly and leaves my lips feeling soft and smooth, without any stickiness or residue. Additionally, unlike some other oil-based lip products, this lip oil serum doesn’t leave any “icky” unpleasant aftertaste in your mouth.

Everyone Needs a Good Quality Lip Oil in Their Nighttime Routine

Even if you do not suffer from dry lips incorporating good quality lip oil into your nighttime routine is beneficial because as we sleep, our bodies naturally begin the process of repairing and regenerating new skin cells and healing any injuries. Our skin temperature also rises to flush out toxins, and our bodies require moisture to aid in this process. Incorporating a high-quality lip care product into your nighttime routine can only bring benefits, helping to provide your lips with the necessary hydration and protection they need for optimal health and appearance.

Usage Instructions

To use the Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Nighttime Rescue Lip Oil-Serum, simply apply a small amount over your bare lips at night to help soothe and soften them. The plush applicator feels like a pillow for your lips as it glides over lip contours, and the sculpted applicator hugs your lips as you apply it, sweeping over your bottom lip and pressing together. It’s important to remember that a little goes a long way, so you don’t need to use a lot.

*** After use, be sure to close the cap tightly to prevent leakage.

Makeup Hack: Using the Serum as a “Lipstick Base”

Another tip to keep your lips hydrated is to use the Estée Lauder Lip Oil-Serum as a base before applying lipstick. Since many lipsticks tend to dry out the lips, using a moisturizing base can help prevent this. Simply apply the lip oil-serum and wait a few seconds for it to absorb before applying your favorite lipstick. Your lips will stay hydrated and your lipstick will apply smoother and more evenly.

Key Ingredients in Estée Lauder’s Pure Color Envy Nighttime Rescue Lip Oil-Serum

The product contains hydrating ingredients like Camellia, Rose, and Lavender Oils which help nourish and soothe the lips, leaving them soft and supple. Additionally, the product has collagen-filling spheres which may help plump up the lips.

  • Camellia Oil: contains oleic acid and vitamins A, B, D and E, which help to moisturize and nourish the skin, while also promoting skin elasticity and reducing the appearance of fine lines.
  • Rose Oil: contains antioxidants, which help to protect the skin from free radical damage and promote skin cell regeneration. It also has anti-inflammatory properties that can help soothe and calm irritated skin.
  • Lavender Oil: has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, which can help to soothe and calm irritated skin. It also contains antioxidants that help to protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals.
  • Collagen Filling Spheres: small particles that contain collagen, a protein that is naturally present in the skin and helps to keep it firm and elastic. When applied topically, these spheres can help to plump up the lips and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

One Downside

I have noticed with this product is that it needs to be kept upright at all times, so I don’t recommend carrying it in your handbag. Make sure to close it tight and keep it upright to ensure prevent the oil from leaking. Due to its running fluid consistency, it’s important to take extra care when opening the Estée Lauder’s Pure Color Envy Nighttime Rescue Lip Oil-Serum. I recommend holding the product upright and opening it slowly to prevent any spills or leaks.


As a vegetarian and animal lover, I share the concern that some consumers may have with Estée Lauder products regarding their animal testing policy. While the company claims to not test on animals themselves, the fact that their products are sold in China where animal testing is required by law raises ethical concerns. For me and many others, this conflict between our values and the brand’s business practices can be a significant concern when deciding whether or not to purchase Estée Lauder products.

To learn more about Estée Lauder’s stance on animal testing, visit their website.

Based on the ingredients list provided, the Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Nighttime Rescue Lip Oil-Serum is not vegan because it contains fish (Pisces) collagen. This ingredient is derived from fish and is therefore not considered vegan.

Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Nighttime Rescue Lip Oil-Serum has surpassed my expectations and has now become one of my favorite products. The product truly delivers on its promises, and my dry lips have never recovered so quickly. Although I highly recommend this product and it has earned a permanent spot on my list of favorite and must-have items, I do feel conflicted about the issue of animal testing.
