Sephora Cougar, Flamingo, Samba Rouge Cream Lipsticks

Sephora Rouge Cream Lipstick ($12.50 for 0.14 oz.) is supposed to be a “hydrating lipstick that creates full lips with intense color.” During the sale, I picked up three of the shades that were featured for summer to try out the formula. All three shades I tried had full color coverage with a creamy, light-to-medium weight texture that looked smooth and even when applied to the lips. They were lightly hydrating, comfortable to wear, and longer-wearing. I didn’t notice any scent or taste, which is a nice bonus.

Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipsticks (Part 2)

Here are the other three shades of Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.). (If you missed part one, check out the review here.) It’s a new (and permanent) formula that’s supposed to have “intensely saturated lip color with a precise tip applicator.” Too Faced says it has “the shine of a gloss, lasting power of a stain, and pigment-packed color of a liquid lipstick.” The consistency is light-medium–not too thick but not runny or watery–and is squeezed out of the tube through a flocked, angled applicator. These next three shades were similar in application and quality to the first three, too, which is always a good thing! The pigmentation was intense, opaque, and the colors applied evenly. These wear a really long time, but these lighter shades didn’t stain as much as the deeper shades in the range. They’re not moisturizing on me, but they’re not drying and pretty comfortable to wear, even towards the end of the wear. The finish is a satin, which turns to a matte after three to four hours of wear, but they never fully set, so these aren’t transfer-proof.
