REVIEW: Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain in 01

I love a good ol' red lip just as much as anyone, but the main problem I have with red lipstick is that sometimes, it will smear all over my face making me look like The Joker in the next Batman movie. It's not a pretty look and that's why I have a lot of troubling liking a red lipstick. Will this make the cut for me? You're about to find out!


A lip stain that provides beautiful, long- lasting color. This high coverage lip product features avocado oil for a texture that transforms as you wear it: when applied, the initial creamy texture becomes a silky, lightweight stain. Lips achieve stunning color and feel soft and comfortable. Available in an array of rich shades, including both matte and satin finishes, with intense color that stays put. 


First of all, I'm going to give you all a little bit of a heads up: this is not a lip stain, it's more of a liquid lipstick. It's way too pigmented to be a lipstain. It's absolutely opaque in one swipe and true to Sephora's claims, the Cream Lip Stain is definitely very creamy and lightweight. Now, before you get ahead of yourselves and decide to click "checkout" on the Sephora website, there are a few cons to this product that you should know about. 

First of all, yes it's very creamy, pigmented and lightweight, but that's what makes application so difficult! It is so pigmented and long lasting that once it dries, it is on! It would take a very powerful makeup remover to remove any mistakes you might have made during application. The doe- foot applicator just isn't enough to get a precise application, you'll have to use a lip brush and a very steady hand to make sure you don't get it all over the place. 

Shade 01 is described as a matte classic red on the Sephora website. It's a beautiful, matte blue- based red, kind of like MAC Ruby Woo. I like how matte it is without being drying on the lips. I can barely feel it on, which is a good thing because I tend to lick all my lip products off when I can feel them on my lips. As I mentioned, the Sephora Cream Lip Stain is also very long lasting. You can go a day without this baby budging from your lips. It doesn't feather or bleed either. 

The Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stains come in a variety of colors and finishes. They are amazing if you want a long lasting liquid lipstick, but it all comes down to personal preference.  I know not everyone likes to sit down for a good 10 minutes trying to perfect their lipstick. Priced at CAD $16, it's not exactly cheap, but not super expensive either.

  3. Wow! What a gorgeous red. Personally I am a fan of mattes as they stay long and don't transfer much. I can sense some addition in my wish list :)
