Spring Break (36)

Sephora Spring Break (36) Lipstories Lipstick ($8.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium, rosy plum with warm undertones and a cream finish. The lipstick had opaque pigmentation in a single layer and applied evenly and smoothly across my lips. It had a lightweight, creamy texture with some slip, but it adhered well to my lips and stayed on for four and a half hours. It was lightly hydrating 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.

Hot in Havana (37)

Sephora Hot in Havana (37) Lipstories Lipstick ($8.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium-dark orange with warm undertones and a cream finish. This one ended up applying more mutedly on my lips than when I just swatched it, though I’d say it looked a bit brighter in person to my eye. It had good color payoff in one fluid stroke, but it did not apply quite as evenly as other shades and pulled away at my lip lines a bit. The consistency lightweight, creamy, and had moderate slip that made it comfortable to apply and to wear. I found the formula to feel lightly moisturizing over the four and a half hours it wore well for.

Off-Limits (38)

Sephora Off-Limits (38) Lipstories Lipstick ($8.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark lavender with warm undertones and a satin finish. The color payoff was opaque in one layer, and the color went on evenly across my lips and did not tug, but there was a bit of product that seemed to sit in my lip lines. It had a velvety, smooth consistency that wasn’t as “wet” in feel compared to most shades in the range. The lipstick stayed on well for five hours, and it looked more matte within an hour and a half of wear. It felt lightly hydrating while I wore it.

I bought Spring Break, love how it feels on my lips, as well and the finish. It’s not the longest lasting lipstick but I prefer to reapply lipstick rather than suffer the dryness that long last lipsticks leave behind.

Beautiful tones in each, really. If I didn’t have dupes for Spring Break and Off-Limits, I’d go for them! As for Hot In Havana, I do love how it’s not another dupe for Morange, as so many oranges wind up being!

Wow Spring Break is reeeeally pretty.

Nice to see Off-Limits is a dupe for Nars Pussy Control. I really like the Nars one, but it’s too expensive for a color I wouldn’t wear too often.

Hot in Havana and Off Limits have both caught my attention, I’ll have to swatch them in stores. I really hope Off Limits isn’t too lights on the lips for me.
