Golden Party (63)

Sephora Golden Party (63) Cream Lip StainSephora Golden Party (63) Cream Lip Stain ($14.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark gold with strong, warm orange undertones and a metallic sheen. The liquid lipstick had rich pigmentation in a single layer. It had a lightweight, lightly emollient consistency that spread easily across my lips but dried down to a matte finish. The color separated slightly along my lip lines (particularly the ones on my lower lip, which are deeper), unfortunately. This shade stayed on well for six hours and was non-drying.

Formula Overview

$14.00/0.169 oz. - $82.84 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "high-coverage" that goes on "smooth" and yields a "silky, lightweight stain" that is "long-lasting" and "never sticky" and "won't dry out lips." One of the signature traits for the formula is that it is a thinner (and yet somehow creamy) texture that does spread well but feels thin and very lightweight on the lips. It dries down quickly, but I never felt like it was troublesome to apply, even if I needed an extra moment to get around the edges of my lips, so it was a more forgiving formula despite setting more quickly. Once it set, the color did stay locked on for hours--I tested shades for around eight hours and many were still going strong. The formula was non-drying to slightly drying to me. They had a moderately strong, sweet scent (almost like burnt sugar) that also smelled just slightly "perfume-y" to me, but it seemed to dissipate after an hour of wear.

The pigmentation varied from shade to shade, but it did seem that the more shimmery and metallic shades often were less pigmented and did not always apply as evenly and sometimes seemed to sit in my lip lines. The cream/matte shades applied more evenly and had more opaque coverage on average.

Metallic Cherry (64)

Sephora Metallic Cherry (64) Cream Lip StainSephora Metallic Cherry (64) Cream Lip Stain ($14.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a bright, medium red with neutral-to-warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had opaque color payoff that applied smoothly and fluidly across my lips for even application. The consistency was lightly creamy, thin and very fluid, which made for trickier application as it was too easy to go outside my lip lines due to the pigmentation paired with the texture. I’d recommend using a separate lip brush to maximize precision. It wore well for six and a half hours and was just a touch drying over time.

Metallic Cherry is really quite nice! But, I think that I’m just over dry-down liquid lipsticks for the most part. Tube form just seems kinder to my lips.

I have metallic cherry and love it so damn much. I will say on me it doesn’t wear quite as well as some of the other colors from the line do, but it’s so metallic and shiny that it’s easy to forgive.
