Warm Nude (75)

Sephora Warm Nude (75) Cream Lip Stain ($14.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a medium-dark, peachy brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color coverage that applied evenly on my lips, but the dry down did seem to emphasize my lip lines and appeared a little “cracked” when I smiled with a touch of tackiness (which did not lift up color). The consistency was smooth, lightly creamy but still thinner and lightweight, and spread well across my lips. It wore well for six and a half hours and felt a little drying after four and a half 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.

Bronze Icon (59)

Sephora Bronze Icon (59) Cream Lip Stain ($14.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a dark, coppery brown withw arm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had nearly opaque color payoff in a single layer, and a second layer was doable as the formula was thinner and quick to dry. The texture was lightweight, smooth, and lightly creamy (yet rather thin) so it spread easily across my lips with little work. It felt a little tacky when I pressed my lips together after it dried down, but it didn’t wear down or lift up the color when I did so. It lasted for six and a half hours and was non-drying while worn.

So glad to see the metallic reviewed well! I was planning on getting some of them during the fall sale if reviews were good!

How rich and toasty Bronze Icon is! I can so see wearing this particular shade. So, it’s a definite maybe!

On the other hand, Warm Nude has too many strikes against it. If Maybelline Nude Nuance is too pale for me, and this is lighter, nope.
