Swatches ~ Sephora Lip Stains in Strawberry, Cherry & Red


Sephora Lip Stains in Strawberry, Cherry & Red

  I was searching for a product that had staying power and something that I wouldn't have to keep re-applying for an extended period. I remember reading on another Blog about the lasting effects of these Sephora Lip Stains in Strawberry, Cherry & Red, so when I was in Sephora, I finally had the opportunity to swatch them for colors, I finally settled on these three.

 These Sephora Lip Stains are so pigmented with staying power lasting about 6hrs.  I do feel they are quite drying though, after about an hour, my lips became very dry and I had to re-apply the lip stain to add a little more moisture to my lips.  When I wore the Cherry, I actually had to apply a light gloss because the more Cherry I applied, the darker the color became.

These lip stains are very buildable depending on how long you want the product to last.  For swatching purposes i'm only using one layer.  All in all, I really like them and i'm planning on purchasing even more colors in the future.... hopefully these are permanent!

Strawberry is one of my favorites and I've actually been wearing this one the most.

This photo of Cherry is a little deceiving, it's actually a little darker but I had to use the flash because I wasn't in much lighting.  Believe it or not, this is only one coat!

By far, this Red was my biggest disappointment.  It looks more like Berry on me and I'm sure this has a lot to do with the darker pigments of my lips.
