Goddess (30)

Sephora Goddess (30) Rouge Lacquer ($13.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a deep, reddish-burgundy with subtle, cool undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff in a single layer, which applied fluidly without dragging on my lips. The texture was creamy with moderate slip, and while it did not feather on me, it was one that would give me pause if that is something that typically occurs for you. It felt lightweight, comfortable, and almost balm-like but still more in the realm of lipstick. The color did not apply as evenly as other shades, and there was some product that spread through my lip lines. It wore well for five hours and was hydrating while worn.

Formula Overview

$13.00/0.1 oz. - $130.00 Per Ounce

The lipstick is supposed to have a "silky smooth melting formula" that yields "intense long-lasting color and high-shine" with "instant hydration." Most shades were creamy without being so slippery that they felt that way or went on unevenly. They do melt quickly, though, so if they are left in a warmer area (with all my photography lights running) and applied, they feel substantially creamier than at room temperature (about 72 degrees).

The texture was smooth, creamy, and comfortable to apply and to wear with most of the shades applying well, though lighter and very deep shades tended to have application problems. The lighter shades tended to separate and sit in my lip lines, while deeper shades were less pigmented and more prone to patchiness (but didn't pull into my lip lines as noticeably as the lighter shades did). The majority of the shades had semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation with a few coming in at more medium to semi-opaque coverage.

As there are 30 shades in the range, wear time definitely varied from three to six hours, depending on depth and pigment level with deeper, redder shades lasting longer than pale beiges and peaches. The formula has been moderately hydrating without feathering on me so far, but I'm not particularly prone to that but would worry about it for those who find it a more frequent occurrence with some of the deeper shades in the lineup.

They had a scent that Sephora lists as having these notes: "vanilla, peony, and intrepid patchouli," and I'd describe the scent as a subtle, sweet, vanilla-floral hybrid mix (nothing specific to my nose) and on most shades, I didn't notice a taste but some shades gave me a bit of one (enough that I was like, "hmm").

Power Suit (01)

Sephora Power Suit (01) Rouge Lacquer ($13.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a deep, eggplant purple with strong, warm undertones and a glossy, cream finish. The formula was very creamy, melted noticeably as soon as I started applying it, and was harder to control along the edges of my lips. I would definitely recommend applying this shade over a lip liner and with a lip brush to minimize the movement. The pigmentation was semi-opaque, and based on the texture, I would not apply a second layer. The color sank into my lip lines and did not apply evenly on my lips. It lasted nicely for four and a half hours and was moisturizing over time. I didn’t experience feathering but would be concerned about it for those that is a more frequent occurrence.

Lovely colors, with the expected unevenness of a creamy dark color. Don’t need either one, but both these colors are very me.

I love my deep burgundies and rich eggplant purple lipsticks, but these get a big “nope” from me. Between the patchiness and the fact that these look downright oily, I’m thinking they are hot mess territory. At least for me, anyway.

Power Suit would make for really pretty gradient lips (which would also keep it away from the edge of the lips and thus avoid bleeding/ feathering), but I don’t think I would actually apply it like this enough to warrant purchasing the product. Pity, cause it’s great looking in theory.
