Sephora Audacious Emerald (60) Cream Lip Stain ($14.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a medium-dark, bluish-teal with a golden, metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in one layer, and it did not apply evenly. The texture seemed to be a little too emollient and more prone to gathering and drying down in my deeper lip lines, and it was harder to get that even, opaque layer of product that I was expecting based on the formula's claims. It was the type of consistency and dry down that allowed for a second layer, so that helped improve opacity and evenness, but it wasn't as comfortable to wear with two layers. It was still going strong after eight hours of wear but felt slightly drying at the six-hour mark. It was such a cool shade, so I was personally quite bummed it didn't apply better!
