It's no secret I have a bit of a thing for liquid lipsticks and over the last few months I have acquired quite the collection, I have many different brands of liquid lipstick and one of those brands is Sephora, for my birthday back in February, I received 2 of the Sephora Cream Lip Stain liquid lipsticks. There is quite a lot of hype surrounding the Cream Lip Stains in the blogging world so I was super excited to try them, and now I've used them quite a few times, I thought it was time I shared my views on them with you, and let you know if they live up to the hype.
The 2 shades I have in the Cream Lip Stains are 03 Strawberry Kissed and 07 Cherry Blossom.
03 Strawberry Kissed
07 Cherry Blossom
Strawberry Kissed is a lovely bright pinky red shade with a matte finish, and Cherry Blossom is a mid toned pink with a matte finish. The packaging is quite typical of lip gloss packaging with a clear tube and black lid, the shade number is on a label on the bottom of the tube and is quite difficult to read as it's so small, I had to squint quite a lot to read the shade numbers.
The Sephora Cream Lip Stains have a flexible doe foot applicator and apply really well, they are nice and easy to apply and not messy at all, I find some liquid lipsticks can be quite difficult to apply and quite messy too but these apply really well. The lip stains have a sweet vanilla scent to them, it doesn't linger and isn't off putting either. The formula of the lip stains is highly pigmented and in just one swipe I am left with a lovely opaque finish, they are insanely pigmented. The wear time of the lip stains is incredible and I get around 7 hours wear time from Strawberry Kissed and around 6 hours wear time from Cherry Blossom, both lip stains wear off the lips nicely and evenly and leave behind a faint colour stain on my lips. They both feel very nourishing when applied and dry to a matte finish in around 30-60 seconds, they don't leave my lips feeling dry at all throughout the day and I didn't experience any cracking or flaking with either shade.
The swatches above were photographed straight after application and as you can see they have a shine to them when first applied meaning they glide on the lips effortlessly and then dry to a matte finish.
Overall I love the Sephora Cream Lip Stains and will definitely be picking up some more shades, they are incredibly pigmented, the wear time is excellent and they feel lovely on the lips, not drying at all which can be the case with some matte liquid lipsticks. I would definitely recommend the cream lip stains they are brilliant and they definitely live up to the hype surrounding them. There are 15 shades to choose from if the two shades I have aren't your colour, there are some lovely shades to choose from and next on my wishlist is definitely Coral Crush.
If you would like to try the Sephora Cream Lip Stains you can find them on the Sephora website HERE for $14.00 which is around £9.50, it is easy to order from Sephora and they ship to the UK, the customs charges are included in the delivery so there is no nasty customs surprises on delivery, the delivery is super fast too.
