I had been meaning to try it out for the last month, and had never quite found the right occasion. However, last week I whipped it out for the first time on a dinner date with a friend. Now, I did not know what to expect but all I can say is 'WOW'. First up it is so pigmented, I have never seen I product like this in my life - which is a bold but very true statement. Application was actually tricky as you have to be so precise, due to the colour payoff. Once it is on it dries very quickly to a pure matte finish, which is there to stay. It is actually a lot brighter than I first expected, it is very much a vibrant orange. First impressions were that I was very impressed, and I was excited to see how it lasted throughout the day.
For dinner I went to an Italian restaurant and had a pizza. When I had a quick check in the mirror it had started to come off in places which is expected when eating, but it still looked okay. It had faded a little, but in order to test the product properly I didn't bother reapplying just yet. However, a few hours later it had flaked off and dried to the outer layer of my lips and looked very patchy, which was disappointing. But with a quick reapplication it looked just as good as when I had first applied it. Like I say though it takes a little time to get it perfect as it is both bright and pigmented.
All in all, I was very impressed with this. They cost €9.90 which is such great value for how great this product really is. If you have any Sephora trips planned in the near future, I highly recommend putting this lip product instantly to the top of your wishlist. They come in 12 different shades, so get swatching if you go shopping!
Have you tried any of the Sephora Lip Cream Stains?
