Sephora collection Cream Lip Stain

Sephora collection Cream Lip Stain

Sephora Lip Cream Stain 2

Sephora’s own name beauty collection has always been extensive. If you’ve ever traveled to Paris and stepped into the Champs-Élysées store, you’d know first hand how massive it can be. However, it isn’t until recently that Sephora started bringing over/creating/adding to their LARGE collection to their website and stores.

A part of the collection they have recently curated is a further addition to their Cream Lip Stain collection. The previously modest line now contains a total of 40 different shades from reds to blues and purples. The neutrals to bolds.  From every day to vibrant and vivacious.

The Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain, $18 5ml each, are made from a creamy, almost velvety formula. A truly opaque formula, the doe foot applicator needs only a single swipe across the lips for full vibrancy. While it does take a little while to fully dry down, you’re left with a brilliantly matte lipstick which can last upto 8 hours depending in your activities.

On average, I found the Cream Lip Stain collections lasted around the 6 hour mark and while they dry down matte, they aren’t wholly transfer proof. That being the said, the Cream Lip Stain collection is one of the most comfortable liquid lipsticks I have ever worn. It does not dehydrate the lips, and therefore can be worn all day, and even multiple days in a row. While some shades fade gracefully, others can be difficult to remove, and will flake if you force the removal. Thankfully, it does not flake during regular wear, and will remove fully with an oil based makeup remover.


Sephora Lip Cream Stain swatches

Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain

Always Red 01a matte, deep, and cool tone classic red. This shade requires no extra steps, or layers of application. It is a as straight forward as they come. However, if you smudge it, it will stain the skin and is killer to remove.

Pink Souffle 06 –  a matte, every day sweet pink shade. While the shade can require a bit of work, without needing an additional layer, the lipstick can be smoothed gently to create a full opacity. Do not over apply the shade as it will show every stroke on the lips.

Marvelous Mauve 13a matte, true mauve. As with the Always red, this shade is a straight shooter. However if you find you will be out for a while, I would bring it along in case of a touch up. However, pigmentation is en pointe!

Black Sorbet 14a matte, berry shade. Though the shade can seem as if it is a bold shade, it can be manipulated to be toned down. With a quick wipe of the wand, the application be worn as a deeper, yet still every day shade. Either wise Black Sorbet is a strong, and vibrant dark shade needing just a single swipe for full opacity.

Pink Frosting 37a matte, cool tone taupe with pink undertones. Needing only a single swipe, this extremely pigmented shade goes a long way and it best applied when wiped off slightly. If overly applied, it can look and feel layered. However, removing a bit from the wand prevent this odd sensation.

Frozen Strawberry 39 –  a matte, milk chocolate brown with pink undertones. Unlike its counterparts, frozen strawberry applies slightly streaky. However, an additional layer even outs the pigmentation without causing any undo flaking.

Pink Tea 40A neutral beige with pink undertones. This shade is very special. I’ve noticed on some people it pulls cool, where others it pulls warm. With certain make up looks, it can pull different on the same individual as well. It however, above all, tends to transfer easier than most, yet applies with full opacity.


Have you tried any of the  Lip Cream Stain collection? What are your thoughts?

    I tried the Cream lip stains when they first came out but hadn’t checked them out in a while. Recently purchased Pink Tea – and you’re right – it is special!

    I’ve always wanted to try these out but I never know what colour to choose since they’re 15 bucks a piece so it’s got to be one I really will wear out!

    I am in love with the Marvelous Mauve shade! I’ve heard lots of great things about the Sephora lip products recently… but $18 is still quite a hefty price tag (in my opinion!)

      I agree, especially considering it is only 5ml, but they are so luscious, I am able to look past the price.
