Red Magma (112)

Sephora Red Magma (112) Cream Lip Stain ($14.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a bright, deep coral-red with warm undertones and a soft, pearly sheen. It wasn’t truly metallic, though it definitely had a sheen of sorts. The texture was lightly creamy, thin without being water, and easy to control and maneuver across my lips with opaque, even coverage. After it dried down, it remained a touch tacky, only noticeable when I pressed my lips together, but it didn’t lift up or disturb the color. The liquid lipstick lasted well for seven and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating.

Formula Overview

$14.00/0.17 oz. - $82.35 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "high-coverage" that goes on "smooth" and yields a "silky, lightweight stain" that is "long-lasting" and "never sticky" and "won't dry out lips." One of the signature traits for the formula is that it is a thinner (and yet somehow creamy) texture that does spread well but feels thin and very lightweight on the lips. It dries down quickly, but I never felt like it was troublesome to apply, even if I needed an extra moment to get around the edges of my lips, so it was a more forgiving formula despite setting more quickly. Once it set, the color did stay locked on for hours--I tested shades for around eight hours and many were still going strong. The formula was non-drying to slightly drying to me. They had a moderately strong, sweet scent (almost like burnt sugar) that also smelled just slightly "perfume-y" to me, but it seemed to dissipate after an hour of wear.

The pigmentation varied from shade to shade, but it did seem that the more shimmery and metallic shades often were less pigmented and did not always apply as evenly and sometimes seemed to sit in my lip lines. The cream/matte shades applied more evenly and had more opaque coverage on average.

Frosted Rose (61)

Sephora Frosted Rose (61) Cream Lip Stain ($14.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy copper with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had medium coverage in a single layer, so it needed a second layer for more opaque coverage, which also helped to even out the first layer. The texture was smooth, lightweight, and thin with less creaminess than most shades I’ve tried in the range. It dried down in about 15 seconds without feeling clingy. While it didn’t emphasize my lip lines, it did not smooth them out either. The lipstick lasted well for six hours and was neither drying nor hydrating over time.

Sephora Warm Nude (75) Cream Lip Stain ($14.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a medium-dark, peachy brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color coverage that applied evenly on my lips, but the dry down did seem to emphasize my lip lines and appeared a little “cracked” when I smiled with a touch of tackiness (which did not lift up color). The consistency was smooth, lightly creamy but still thinner and lightweight, and spread well across my lips. It wore well for six and a half hours and felt a little drying after four and a half hours of wear.

Sephora Rose Wood (85) Cream Lip Stain ($14.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The color payoff was fantastic with opaque coverage in a single layer. The texture was slightly thinner compared to most shades I’ve tried in this formula, and I had very, very slight streaking in places even after it dried down, though it wasn’t noticeable in person, just if I zoom in on the close-up photo. It dried down within 20 seconds on me but didn’t feel clingy, despite being thin. This shade stayed on nicely for seven hours and felt a bit drying after six hours of wear.

First Date (70)

Sephora First Date (70) Cream Lip Stain ($14.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a rich, medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a matte finish. The pigmentation was nearly opaque in a single layer, while the consistency was lightweight, fluid, and thin without being watery and had a little creaminess to it, which helped it spread evenly across my lips. It dried down within 30 seconds to a mostly matte finish, but there was a touch of tackiness present for the next few hours of wear, though I didn’t have issues with the color lifting up when I pressed my lips together. This shade lasted well for seven hours and was slightly drying after five and a half hours of wear.

Sephora Day Dreaming (81) Cream Lip Stain ($14.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a medium, rosy mauve with neutral-to-cool undertones and a flat, matte finish. The color payoff was opaque with a smooth, fluid consistency that was thin but not watery. It applied evenly across my lips, but after it had dried down and did accentuate my lip lines a bit on the lower lip but seemed fine on my upper lip. This shade wore well for seven and a half hours and was slightly drying after four hours of wear.
