Sephora Twolips (14) Lipstories Lipstick ($8.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a bright, medium fuchsia pink with cooler undertones and a cream finish. The pigmentation was good, but the application wasn’t as even as other shades, and I noticed that this particular shade seemed to adhere less smoothly. The texture was creamy with moderate slip, which might have been why the application wasn’t as good as other colors in the formula. This sahde wore well for four and a half hours but settled into lip lines a bit, left behind a slight stain, and was lightly hydrating.

Formula Overview

$8.00/0.14 oz. - $57.14 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "lightweight" with "full-coverage color in one swipe." The majority of shades were pigmented with semi-opaque to full color payoff in a single layer, as described. The more shimmery shades tended to be a bit sheerer overall, while the mattes and creams were usually closer to opaque in coverage. The textures were typically creamy, lightweight, and not too thin or too thick on the lips, so they were comfortable to apply and to wear. There were some shades where the color pulled into my deeper lip lines upon application, and it was more or less noticeable just depending on the color and finish of the particular. Some shades seemed hydrating and others were non-drying. They lasted anywhere from three to over six hours on me. There was a subtle, sweet, fruity scent (I couldn't detect it on, just in the tube), and I haven't noticed any taste after wearing them.

Sephora Take a Spin (41) Lipstories Lipstick ($8.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a soft, medium beige with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic sheen. It had better pigmentation that I expected (almost opaque), but it had a lot of slip and the particle size of the glitter/sparkle seemed prone to making the color clump up on those particles rather than adhere to my lips evenly. The end result was a clumpy, patchy application that did not look good. It worked better layered over another product with a lip brush or fingertip. It wore well for three and a half hours and was lightly hydrating.

Sephora Fire Side (11) Lipstories Lipstick ($8.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a deep brown with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had opaque color payoff that applied evenly and smoothly across my lips and never tugged during application. The lipstick had a lightweight, creamy (but not slippery!) consistency that had a bit of substance to it so it seemed to smooth out most of my lip lines. It stayed on nicely for five hours and was lightly moisturizing.

Flashing Lights

Milani Flashing Lights Hypnotic Lights Powder Highlighter ($12.99 for 0.30 oz.) is a light-medium pink with warm undertones and a gold-to-orange shifting shimmer. It had a luminous finish on my skin–glowing but not overtly shimmery or metallic–so it was easy to apply and never have to worry about emphasizing my skin’s natural texture. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation. On my complexion, it was a subtle highlighter and blusher. The powder was smooth, soft without being powdery, and blendable. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading slightly.

Formula Overview

$12.99/0.30 oz. - $43.30 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "silky-smooth" and have a "subtle, iridescent glow." Subtle is right on the money; they have an ethereal glow that's there but not blaring, and there's really a sea of intense, metallic highlighters on the market, so seeing something on the subtle end of the spectrum was refreshing. The powders had a soft, smooth, slightly dense consistency, but they did not feel stiff nor were they difficult to pickup with a brush. They blended out easily on the skin, sat well, and yielded a lit-from-within kind of glow. On me, they lasted for eight hours.

Sephora Brunch Date (01) Lipstories Lipstick ($8.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark peachy brown with soft, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had good color coverage, though it was shy of full coverage, and I could see my lip freckle peeking through. The texture was smooth, velvety, and a little thin but not clingy. It seemed to pull into my lip lines a little bit more than other shades in the line, and it also had more of a matte finish within an hour. It wore well for four hours and was neither drying nor hydrating.

Still Crazy

Colour Pop Still Crazy Lux Lipstick ($7.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark, rosy pink with warm undertones and a satin finish. The color payoff was opaque in one stroke, and the lipstick applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without tugging. It had a lightweight texture that had some slip but wasn’t overly slippery or emollient, so it didn’t move around too easily. The shine faded after an hour of wear and made the finish more matte. It wore well for four and a hal fhours and was neither drying nor hydrating.

Formula Overview

$7.00/0.12 oz. - $58.33 Per Ounce

The formula that is supposed to be a "creamy-matte" that "glides on like butter, doesn't feather or bleed, and lasts so long you'll forget you're even wearing it." The majority of the shades were quite pigmented with full color payoff in a single stroke with a few in the more semi-opaque coverage range.

The texture was, on average, smooth, lightly creamy, and not too thick or too thin, so there was no tugging during application but the color didn't feel slippery while worn, which made them easier to apply straight from the tube and low-maintenance on the lips.

They tend to dry and wear down to a soft matte finish within one to three hours of wear, and while they are very lightweight on, they hug the lips more as they become more matte (compared to initial feel). The wear time has been between four and six hours for most shades, and most shades were non-drying to lightly hydrating. They were vanilla-scented but had no discernible taste.
