No Limit (32)

Sephora No Limit (32) Rouge Lacquer ($13.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a brighter, medium red-copper with subtle, warm undertones and a glossy, cream finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single layer, which adhered evenly and smoothly across my lips without emphasizing my lip texture.

The consistency was creamy and felt like it melted slightly as I applied it, but it developed a touch of tackiness within a few minutes that helped keep the formula from feeling slippery during wear. It stayed on well for four and a half hours and was hydrating over time.

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").

A bit warm/coppery for me but I can attest to how good most of these Rouge Lacquer lipsticks are. I mean, compare this (at $13 US) to its YSL dupes at $38 and the choice is simple, at least to me. I do love my luxury products but at the same time, I don’t like wasting money and savings on these types of lip products mean I have more to spend on the luxury items I really want.

I love a good red-copper shade and this looks beautiful. The only issue I would have is the tackiness, did you feel like you wanted to lick your lips all the time Christine, when wearing it?

I found it wears of pretty quickly, ?about a stain, as the ones i have are close to my lip color. There’s no sweetener, and i found i pressed, but did not lick. Somehow, that sounds vulgar. All that Orgasm stuff has my mind in the gutter
