Sephora Cream Lip Stain review + swatches

Hello there lovely! Liquid lipsticks are certainly in the wind right now. Every brand out there is releasing new liquid lipsticks, although with different level of quality. The Sephora Cream Lip Stains is on the better half, and the only bad thing about them is that they don’t have a wider color range!

First thing first: the name is quite misleading, as I’d say it is indeed a liquid lipstick, and I don’t get why they called it a stain. They’re so easy to apply, and last for a very long time. Perfect for everyday life, when you’re too busy to apply a new layer every couple of hours.

Sephora Cream Lip Stains review

My six shades are, from left to right: 01 Always Red, 03 Strawberry Kissed, 06 Pink Soufflé, 08 Whipped Blush, 09 Watermelom Slice and 13 Marvelous Mauve.

I originally only had three of these, that I had my mom get for me when she was at Sephora, but they were so good I had to get a few more shades once I got the chance! What is kind of unfair though is that all of the shades isn’t available in Europe. I recall wanting one of the darkest shade for last fall (14 Blackberry Sorbet), but unfortunately it turned out it was impossible to get a hold of.

I honestly don’t know which one is my favorite anymore! At first I loved Marvelous Mauve more than anything, then it was Whipped Blush which is the brightest shade ever – then it was Strawberry Kissed which was the most beautiful pinkish red on my lips, and now just recently I fell in love with Always Red!

So let’s do a rundown for each shade, shall we?

01 Always Red: Your classic red.
03 Strawberry Kissed: Pinkish red. It really depends on the light if it’s more on the pink or red side of things. Either way, it’s gorgeous.
06 Pink Soufflé: Just pink. I don’t feel like this one is anything special, just your everyday kind of shade.
08 Whipped Blush: Oh where do I begin with you! It’s a bright fuchsia, which sure brings attention to your lips. It can easily be used to make a statement.
09 Watermelom Slice: It’s more of a pink coral shade if anything. It may be a bit too yellow based and warm toned for my fair cool complexion.
13 Marvelous Mauve: Your lips but better. It’s still gorgeous and I love having it in my collection.

The time it takes for them to dry to a matte finish is just right! You get to work with it to make it perfect, without worrying it’ll dry right away, and the applicator is also easy to work with. Then yet again it’s not like you have to wait for a long time before it sets. It’s strange that way.

I can honestly say I love these, and would love to get some more in my collection. The price is just right at $14, which is a lot cheaper than a lot of other liquid lipsticks out there.

If you want lip swatches in the future, make sure to mention it in the comment section! Which shade is your favorite? XO
