Sephora Lip Swatches & Review*

I had recently been sent a few different lip products from Sephora to try out, and I thought that it would be a great opportunity to do a lip swatch post since my last one I did a while back (the Marc Jacobs set) did really well. These lipsticks are high quality and to be honest, I was very surprised. Usually when I go to Sephora, I always grab a brand that they carry and rarely go for the Sephora in-house brand. After being sent a variety of these lipstick to try, I really think it's time to re-think things! 

They have really been stepping up the game in terms of coming up with innovative products that other brands may not have done yet, or they carry a bigger range of it. For e.g. the airflash foundation that Dior carries, Sephora actually carries a primer version, more colors, bronzer and blush (all in the aerosol can version). Or, the gel concealer that I have been loving for the last few months has a consistency that is quite different from what other brands have done.

1. Rouge Balm - Gentle Coral - $15.50 Cad:
Protects your lips with Yuzu extract and Vitamin E derivative. It is pigmented and leaves a beautiful glossy finish to your lips. I loved the bold pop of color and how creaminess this is. 

2. Rouge Shine Lipstick - Royal Wedding - $15.50 Cad - 
The Hydra-Comfort complex blend of moisturizing oils and antioxidant Vit E gives you plump hydrated lips and nourishes it while protecting them. I found the color to be a bit sheer but build-able without looking gooey. 

3. Rouge Shine Lipstick - Miss You
Formula is like Royal Wedding - This is the type of color that I naturally graviate to. A light nude mauve pink color.
4. Rouge Shine Lipstick - A-Lister
Is a brighter pink with a metallic hue - not really a fan of anything with a metallic sheen/finish to it, but it was fine enough that it wasn't chunky glitter or too obvious. 

5.  Rouge Cream Lipstick -Lucky One - $15 Cad
Aagin, another color that I gravitate towards, a pink nudey color. This formula, as the name suggests is creamy and pigmented. 

6. Wonderful Cushion Matte Lip-Cream - Wonderful Red - $10 Cad
Although I love the matte, stain-like quality of this lip product, I wouldn't say that this is too "cushion" like. I have tried cushion products before, and thought that it was be a softer applicator, like a sponge. However, this one is really firm and the round tip made it harder to have a precise application on the lips. I do love the color, however I think the top applicator should change a bit.

With the abundance of lipsticks from different brands that Sephora carries, some of you avid beauty fans may know that they can start from $20 and can go up to even $45-50 per lipstick. Sephora's own personal brand carries a huge range of lipsticks, stains and glosses that come in a multitude of formulas and colors. 

The likelihood of you finding a dupe, or a close match to something you are looking for from a pricier brand is quite large. Therefore, the next time you have your heart set on something, try to see if you can find it from the Sephora brand first. 

Until next time, XO - M.
