Sephora Strong as Helle (27) Rouge LacquerSephora Strong as Helle (27) Rouge Lacquer ($13.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a light-medium coral with stronger, warm undertones and a glossy, cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which did not build up--I'd attribute that more to how emollient and slippery the formula was, as it just didn't layer up well. The product was more prone to emphasizing my lip texture along with some sinking into my lip lines, but the glossier finish made it less apparent at a normal viewing distance (e.g. in person, not in a close-up photo!). It lasted for three hours but was lightly hydrating over time.
