Sephora Polar Lights (78) Lipstories Lipstick ($8.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a deep purple with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation in a single layer, but it would need a lip pencil underneath to get to full, even coverage.
The texture was smooth, dense without being so firm that it became stiff to apply, and covered my lips fairly evenly. There was some slip, which resulted in the product separating a bit along my lip lines, but the higher coverage helped to camouflage imperfections in the application. It applied better than some other shades in this shade family, but it's definitely the kind of product that benefits greatly from a lip primer or lip liner. It stayed on well for six and a half hours, left a pinkish stain behind, and was lightly hydrating over time.
