Lip creams and lip stains are such a big thing in the beauty world right now. There are so many options from both high end and drugstores brands. I have been wanting to try the Sephora Cream Lip Stains as they are recommended by so many beauty bloggers. However, Sephora products are very hard to get hold of as we don’t have a store here in London. There are available websites online but the shipping fees are crazy. I picked mine up when I went on holiday and made sure I bought a few to last me for a long time.
It is very pigmented; mauve pink shade with dark undertones.
It goes on creamy and dries into a beautiful matte finish.
It is a lightweight stain and does not feel sticky at all.
It is long-lasting on the lips and does not usually require a touch up.
The collection has 15 shades in total including both matte and satin finishes.
It is not very accessible here in the UK. It is possible to order on the Sephora website but be aware of the shipping fees. There are beauty blogger that keeps comparing this product to Stila Liquid Lipstick in shadePatina as they said that it is the perfect dupe for it. However, I could not say for myself as I do not own the Stila liquid lipstick.
Make sure to exfoliate your lips especially if it is dry and peeling. Apply balm to give moisture to the lips before applying the product.
I usually scrape off the excess from the applicator on the side of the tube to make sure that I don’t pick up too much of the product.
I personally don’t use a lip liner with this product and I start in the centre of my lips and smooth it outwards towards the corners of my lips.
Stay away from oily foods to make it more long-lasting.
I give Sephora Lip Stain in Marvelous Mauve the rating of 4/5. I love the finish and how pigmented it is. It is the perfect mauve shade for me as I prefer this shade rather than wearing nudes that washes me out. I usually exfoliate my lips as part of my regime, therefore I have not experienced any flaking or any dryness with this product. Avocado oil was one of its ingredients and this is to provide comfort and nutrition for the lips. On the other hand, I will just keep wishing that someday we will have the Sephora Collections readily available here in the UK. Overall, I am very happy with it and will continue to buy the other shades from the collection (perhaps another holiday soon that has Sephora stores).
Have you tried the Sephora Lip Stain in Marvelous Mauve? If not, what is your favourite lip creams?
Lots of love from,
