Good morning beauties! Those of you who know me in person have seen me go through my rockabilly/pinup phase when I had betty bangs, wore bandanas in my hair and wore red lipstick pretty much every day. Since then I moved on, but I am still a really big fan of a matte bright red lipstick and my obsession has been fueled some more when I got my hands on the Sephora Cream Lip Stain in 01 Always red.
Sephora Cream Lip Stain in 01 Always Red Lip Swatch
I heard Lily Pebbles, Amelia Liana and Anna rave about this and picked it up in Madrid a couple of weeks ago (you can read my haul here). Boy am I impressed!!! The color is a perfect bright cool toned red and the texture is very smooth and it dries to a complete matte finish. It feels very comfortable on the lips and only starts feeling dry after around 4 hours, then I just go over it with a light lip balm and I’m set. The lasting power is really amazing and at the end of the day I really need to put effort with wipes and micellar water to get it off. I tell you, it’s a keeper!!! The packaging is the typical transparent lip product tube which allows you to see the color of the stain and has a black wand with Sephora written on it which ends with a soft and very good doe foot applicator.
The Sephora Lip Stain reminds me of an even improved version of the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet liquid lipsticks. I find the application easier with the longer wand and the doe foot applicator seems to collect less product in the Sephora one so when you put it on you don’t have excess product on the edge of your lips. You can find the lipstick in all Sephora stores and counters or on the website here for 13$.
Pair this gorgeous red with a winged liner and you’re set for a perfect pinup look! 🙂
Have you tried this stain? Do you have products from the Sephora brand?
