Riot Girl (26)

Sephora Riot Girl (26) Rouge Lacquer ($13.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark brown with neutral-to-cool undertones and a glossy, cream finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that felt balm-like as it melted against the warmth of my lips. I was impressed by how it didn’t seem to settle into my lip lines and helped my lips appear a bit smoother overall. It wore well for four hours and was lightly hydrating.

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").

Strong as Helle (27)

Sephora 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.

Visionary (14)

Sephora Visionary (14) Rouge Lacquer ($13.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a medium-dark plum with very strong, warm undertones paired with a lightly glossy, cream finish. I almost wanted to described it as a copper-plum–it’s almost too warm to be in the plum family but not warm enough to be a copper… decisions, decisions! The texture was smooth, lightweight, and creamy without being overly slippery. It had nearly opaque color payoff in a single layer, which adhered evenly and didn’t emphasize my lip lines. This shade stayed on nicely for four and a half hours on me and was moisturizing over time.

I love that a lipstick I definitely would have worn in the 1990s is called Riot Girl! It reminds me a little of MAC Verve, which is a shade I used to love a few years back, but I don’t think it looks that good on me anymore.

Rust! That’s what my dear old Mom would have described Visionary as, a cross between a copper and a plum is rust. With all her sewing and crafting, she taught me the names of all the hues of colors, even some interesting ones for a little kid to know!
Okay, that aside; I really LOVE Visionary! It’s just different enough from what I already have, plus it’s so beautiful applied!

The colour Visionary is beautiful. Do u think it is similar to Maybelline High Shine lipstick in Chocolate Lust? I have that. Dont wanna buy if they r too close

Visionary is gorgeous. I don’t think I have anything in that shade so I’m going to go swatch it soon. I can’t recall if it is because I just haven’t found a formula I like or if the tone isn’t right for my skin/lip tone so I need to look at it in person before buying.
