You already know that Sephora’s sacred shelves are stocked with a best of makeup brands, yet don’t nap on a in-house makeup line, Sephora Collection. It’s my tip go-to for affordable alternatives to all my favorite beauty staples, from a $10 ship that’s allied to Urban Decay’s 24/7, to a $14 concealer that gives Tarte Shape Tape a run for a money. Above all, though, are a lipsticks that are my favorite.
As someone who is a bit of a lipstick posh (I customarily strech for pricier tubes from status brands like Chanel, Dior, and Pat McGrath) we was astounded to tumble for Sephora Collection’s Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick. The Flame Red shade is, hands down, my favorite red right now. And, it’s now 50 percent off, on sale for $7 down from $14.
If we could review it to another lipstick, I’d contend it’s like a some-more affordable chronicle of NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment. But, here are some-more reasons because I’ve totally depressed for it:
The regulation is ideally balanced. It goes on creamy, yet dries down matte though creation your lips feel dehydrated. Far too often, glass lipsticks frame divided any dampness and feel worried yet that’s not a box here. Liquid lipsticks can also have a heavy, gummy peculiarity about them that creates wearing it worried yet this regulation is estimable though removing too gooey.
The red is zodiacally flattering. It’s not too blue, not too deep, and not too orange. It’s only a loyal red that anyone can lift off.
It is totally smudge-proof. Once this lipstick is on, it’s ON and we swear it’ll final by a canon (or, during least, by eating a integrate slices of greasy pizza).
It is long-lasting. we practical it during 7:30 in a morning and didn’t feel a need to reapply until 3:00 in a afternoon—even afterwards it indispensable only a smallest touch-up during a core of my lips.
The wrapping is no-frills. I adore how elementary a elementary cosmetic lipstick tube is. No captivating bullet. No gemstones or imagination attachments. No gimmicky ways of flipping open. Is it Instagram-able? Not necessarily. But, it is positively selfie-approved.
Here’s what a lipstick looks like on me. See how confidant that red is? At only $7, we improved trust I’ll be stocking adult on some-more tubes. One for each bag, please.
