Sephora Spiked & Offshore Lipstories Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Spiked (65)

Sephora Spiked (65) Lipstories Lipstick ($8.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a muted, medium rosy mauve with neutral-to-cool undertones and a satin finish. It had opaque color payoff in a single layer, which adhered evenly and smoothly across my lips without tugging. The texture was lightweight, creamy without being too slippery, and a bit denser (though not thick!). It stayed on nicely for four and a half hours and felt moisturizing while worn.

Formula Overview

$8.00/0.14 oz. - $57.14 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "lightweight" with "full-coverage color in one swipe." The majority of shades were pigmented with semi-opaque to full color payoff in a single layer, as described. The more shimmery shades tended to be a bit sheerer overall, while the mattes and creams were usually closer to opaque in coverage. The textures were typically creamy, lightweight, and not too thin or too thick on the lips, so they were comfortable to apply and to wear. There were some shades where the color pulled into my deeper lip lines upon application, and it was more or less noticeable just depending on the color and finish of the particular.

Some shades seemed hydrating and others were non-drying. They lasted anywhere from three to over six hours on me. There was a subtle, sweet, fruity scent (I couldn't detect it on, just in the tube), and I haven't noticed any taste after wearing them.

Offshore (66)

Sephora Offshore (66) Lipstories Lipstick ($8.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a deep, blue-based red with a creamy, glossy finish. It had a smooth, creamy consistency with moderate slip, so for those more prone to feathering, the texture and hue may give you issues (I didn’t personally experience feathering but that’s not something I normally experience). The color applied evenly and didn’t sink noticeably into my lip lines. It wore well for five and a half hours and left behind a strong, pink-red stain and was lightly hydrating over time.

I wanted to pick up Spiked (and Margs) when I visited Sephora this past weekend but they didn’t have them in store. Their #Lipstories display was pretty disappointing, in fact. I’ll have to order online! Now that I’ve seen the good review for Spiked, I’m definitely interested.

That’s interesting AJ – when I go into our local Sephora to see the Lipstories display, I am always annoyed because they never restock, or only have a few shades of the range. Grrr.

You would really think they would do a better job of keeping their own products stocked! One of my friends back in Tucson was telling me that the Sephoras there no longer had their Sephora Collection liquid lipsticks, which I thought was ridiculous because that formula is THE BEST.

Spiked is a sweet one! Just a perfect mauvey-pinky lip, but I may still hold out for TF Sugar Glider. Not sure yet.

These both look LOVELY.

I’m so attracted to those dusty mauve rose colours and then realized I have 5 of the dupes for Spiked… sigh…

Offshore looks bangin’ though 😉

Both great colors. I love Spiked especially. It seems like a matte I might be able wear this without drying my lips too much.
