Sephora Cream Lip Stain Swatches

Sephora 12 African Violet 15 Polished Purple Cream Lip Stain

As I was just telling my good makeup pal Gracie, every time I step into Sephora I’m like a kid in a candy store. There’s just so much stuff to want! Lipsticks, foundations, moisturizers, masks–I’m playing in all of it. All of it. After seeing a few snaps of the Sephora Cream Lip Stains on Instagram, curiosity got the best of me and led me to play with them while shopping the Love Note sale.

Sephora describes the formula as:

A lip stain that provides beautiful, long-lasting color. This high coverage lip product is formulated with avocado oil for a texture that transforms as you wear it: when applied, the initial cream texture becomes a silky, lightweight stain. Lips achieve stunning color and feel soft and comfortable.

There’s currently 14 shades and I was hoping to walk away with 3 of them but Marvelous Mauve is always sold out online and in stores. Looks like I’m gonna have to dust off my old Pokemon skills to catch that one. In the meantime, I picked up:

Sephora markets them as a lip stain but they definitely feel more like liquid-to-matte lipsticks to me. Both shades dried down rather quickly to a soft matte finish. I’ve only worn Polished Purple once but, so far, I like it! The formula is on par with higher end liquid lipsticks I’ve tried and they’re pretty cheap at just $13. I can’t wait to play with them some more so I can give you a full review!

Have you tried the Sephora Cream Lip Stains before? What do you think?
