I picked up the new Sephora #Lipstories in 06-Tan Lines to give the new range a try. These bullet lipsticks are only $10.00 CAD a piece, thats cheaper than some drug store brands. For that price I figured I couldn't go wrong and the shade Tan Lines looked like my kind of shade-Nude! Read on if you'd like to hear my thoughts on the new Sephora #Lipstories lipsticks.
What Sephora says about #Lipstories - This is lipstick for real life, not just ring lights-lipsticks for celebrating the wild adventures, best moments, and magical memories in your life. So grab a shade or four and take your lipstick outside. See you out there. What it it: A high pigment, lightweight lipstick that provides full-coverage in one swipe. Available in 40 shades and three finishes: matte, cream and metal.
The Sephora #Lipstories are packaged in a cardboard packaging, similar to the Tarte Quench Lip Rescues. The packaging does feel very sturdy though, so no need to worry that it is going to fall apart in your purse! The cap is nice and tight fitting as well. Each lipstick bullet has a different picture on the tube, usually something to do with the shade name, 06-Tan Lines has a beach theme. The finish is also embossed on the lipstick, which is kind of different. You won't forget what finish you are using anyway.
The shade I picked up, 06-Tan Lines, is a light warm peachy nude. It is a fairly light shade that I think would look the best on light-light medium skin tones, I think any skin tones much darker than that and it may be to light.
The shade I picked up, 06 - Tan Lines is a #cream finish. I am a fan of cream finish, it just feels so comfortable on the lips. They are like a classic cream lipstick finish, slightly glossy and definitely not transfer-proof! The downside to them is that you do need to apply them more often. I find with the Sephora #Lipstories, at least this shade, I do need to re-apply after about 3-4 hours.
Form having tried this one Sephora #Lipstories lipstick I am definitely interested in trying out the #matte finish. Hopefully it is as comfortable as the #creme. I definitely think that these new lipsticks from Sephora are more than well worth the $10.00 CAD price tag.
