Rock & Purple (56)

Sephora Rock & Purple (56) Cream Lip StainSephora Rock & Purple (56) Cream Lip Stain ($14.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a medium-dark purple with soft, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that covered my lips evenly with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that was thin but not runny. The color spread well across my lips and dried down fast enough not to sink into my lip lines too noticeably. It wore well for seven hours and was slightly drying after five hours of wear.

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.

Endless Purple (04)

Sephora Endless Purple (04) Cream Lip StainSephora Endless Purple (04) Cream Lip Stain ($14.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plum with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It was richly pigmented with a lightweight, thin texture that was a little creamy and had good slip (which helped it spread easily) but didn’t get so fluid that it was hard to work with. The liquid lipstick dried down to a flat, matte finish that stayed on well for over seven hours. The formula was neither drying nor hydrating over time.

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Just the name alone speaks to me: Rock & Purple! Haha! Plus, I actually love the shade itself. I do have CP Bijou, yet feel like this is different enough to own both. Next autumn, me think.

I’ve been staring at both of these thinking I have lipsticks just like them (color, not finish). I found “Antidote” in the dupe list for Rock & Purple, but nothing in the Endless Purple list is familiar (other than Dead Roses, but I don’t consider that a dupe — honestly, I don’t call any of those colors in that list a true dupe). It’s driving me nuts.

Your reviews definitely have me impressed with this line! Rock & Purple reminds me of Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in LUV but with a much better performance. Next time I want a liquid lipstick I think I’ll look at these first.

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
