Tired of liquid lipstick yet? I’m not! Regular lipsticks are definitely easier to apply but for some reason liquid lipsticks are just more fun. Lately, I’ve been having a ball with the Sephora 15 Polished Purple Cream Lip Stain. Not only is the color absolutely gorgeous but this baby lasts and lasts!
That’s perhaps my favorite thing about liquid lipsticks–they truly don’t quit. Oh and they come in the most unique colors, too! Take Polished Purple for example. Sure, we’ve been seeing a lot of purples lately but none quite like this. Polished Purple is a deep cool blackened eggplant with fine micro-shimmer and a yummy cupcake scent. I have like a million purple lipsticks lying around but I don’t have a single dupe for Polished Purple. While some shades may come close, the micro-shimmer makes Polished Purple truly unique and gives it a slight metallic shift that looks so badass in an ultra matte finish.
I fell head over heels for the color the first time I swatched it in the store but I was worried that shimmer + ultra matte finish = super drying. But nope! Polished Purple is actually quite comfortable to wear. It applies smoothly and evenly with a slightly thick, creamy texture that dries down within a minute or so to an ultra matte non-drying finish. As I mentioned with African Violet, the formula reminds me a lot of the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks but there’s no sticky uncomfortable feeling during the dry down and they’re a little more comfortable to wear.
The Sephora Cream Lip Stains are formulated with avocado oil so they’re actually not too drying at all. Polished Purple wears for around 6-7 hours before I notice some slight fading and it starts to feel a little dry. And even then, there’s no flaking, settling or crazy patchiness. Overall, I recommend the Sephora 15 Polished Purple Cream Lip Stain to every purple addict out there. There’s no duping this color and the formula is a real treat!
