Sephora is everyone’s happy place, so when they came up with their own makeup line everyone was pumped up! My aunt decided to grab a few things too. So, she bought the Sephora Rouge Cream lipstick for me . Now, I’ve worn it a lot since then and I have a lot to talk about this with you. So let’s begin with the Sephora Rouge Cream Lipstick review.
Product Name: Sephora Rouge Cream Lipstick in the shade Unfaithful
Price & Quantity: It retails for $13 or INR 1000 for 0.14 oz/3.9 g
Availability: It’s available online as well as at the Sephora store (obviously!) Buy here.
Ingredients: Check their official website for the same.
Packaging & Appearance: The packaging is glossy black and very sleek and smart. Nothing over the top and fancy which I actually like. At the bottom you can see the shade color so you can easily grab it, aka color coded. Also the shade name and other details are given on the actual tube when you open the lid.
The product is very travel friendly . The inner tube is a bit smaller comparatively but it’s the perfect size so that you can hold the lipstick properly while applying.
Smell: Oh my God guys! It literally smells like the sugar coated candies that we use to eat as kids. But if you don’t like fragrances in your products then it’s not a issue as when you apply the lipstick the smell goes away!

My Experience: The brand in itself got me excited to try out this lipstick! I really like the packaging as it’s functional, travel friendly and sleek looking.
Coming to what I felt about the formula , it’s pretty thick , it goes on opaque in 1 to 2 swipes only which is extremely great! The finish is creamy, the formula doesn’t dry out your lips at all but due to its thick texture I would suggest you to apply a lip balm underneath for easy application. But despite the consistency, it doesn’t feel heavy after you’ve applied it which is extremely good.
Talking about the shade, it washes me out. It’s a very pale pink shade. I have fair to medium skin tone but I would recommend this particular shade only to cool or neutral undertone girls, or if you have pink undertones this would flatter you. I have to make it work by mixing it with other shades but as itself, not at all!
It stays on for 5 to 6 hours but it is easily transferable as it’s very creamy so doesn’t set like a matte lipstick. So even while changing clothes be a little careful as it can get on your clothes. If you drink or eat it does transfer very easily.
If you are having heavy meals it does not stay that well and can easily come off just leaving a slight tint. But without eating it won’t come off totally, the color will fade gradually but will be still there on your lips and won’t need a touch up for up to 4 hours.
Also with this lipstick I didn’t experience any settling around the corners or edges of my lips, till the color is there it’s not settling around the edges at all which is extremely great! The formula is great and you’ll love it if you love cream lipsticks!
I would prefer this lipstick on days where I wanna run errands and I know I won’t be indulging into heavy meals and will be wearing it for 5 to 6 hours max . On a casual day out or for everyday it’s great option still keeping my lips luscious and hydrated looking!
