Desert Trip (39)

Sephora Desert Trip (39) Lipstories LipstickSephora Desert Trip (39) Lipstories Lipstick ($8.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium-dark, slightly muted purple with strong, warm pink undertones and a cream finish. The color payoff was nearly opaque, while the texture was lightweight, creamy, and had some slip but enough substance to adhere evenly to lips and stay inside my lines over the four and a half hours it lasted for. There was a touch of product that gathered in my deeper lip lines, but it wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance.

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.

Ice Breaker (46)

Sephora Ice Breaker (46) Lipstories LipstickSephora Ice Breaker (46) Lipstories Lipstick ($8.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a deep, bluish-purple with cool undertones and fine, blue and purple sparkle and finer pearl. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which did not build up to full coverage. This was likely due to the more emollient, creamy texture that made it comfortable to apply but less stellar with respect to application. This might work better over a matte lipstick as a layering shade than on its own. The lipstick stayed on well for four and a half hours, left a slight purplish stain behind, and was lightly moisturizing.

Popsicle Lips (28)

Sephora Popsicle Lips (28) Lipstories LipstickSephora Popsicle Lips (28) Lipstories Lipstick ($8.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a bright, medium cherry red with cool undertones and a glossy finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was translucent in an even way, and frankly, the effect reminded me of lips after having a cherry popsicle as it looked more like a lip stain. The texture was creamy, moderately emollient, but it did not slide around on me nor did it feather (but I’m not prone to feathering myself). The formula was comfortable to wear as it was lightly hydrating over the five hours this shade lasted for (and it did stain slightly).

Popsicle Lips and Desert Trip look yummy! Especially since I seem to have an affinity for bright, juicy looking lip colors when I’m not wearing a “nude”, mlbb or very deep, vampy lip. And hey, at $8 a pop, these are beyond tempting, as they’re a wonderful deal!
