Sephora Collection: Cream Lip Stain (Watermelon Slice)

This is part of my recent 2016 Sephora Bangkok haul.

First and foremost, please do pardon my nails on these photos. I took these literally hours after we landed from Bangkok. So……. there’s my excuse…?

Sephora Collection: Cream Lip Stain in Watermelon Slice. This took me back Tbh 470, minus 5% because of the Sephora Card magic (which I still don’t understand).

According to the SephoraPH website: Available in an array of rich shades, this high-coverage stain is contains avocado oil for a texture that transforms as you wear it from creamy to silky and lightweight. Lips achieve stunning, high-pigment color and feel soft and comfortable all day.

The wand’s nothing spectacular. Just a regular wand.

Color’s stunning, and pigmentation is vivid. I really like this color, Watermelon Slice.

My thoughts:

  • Watermelon Slice is a stunning color. Did I mention that already?
  • This Sephora lippie is SOOOOOOOOOOO much better than the other Sephora lippie I bought.
  • The claim on it’s website: as you wear it from creamy to silky and lightweight. Lips achieve stunning, high-pigment color and feel soft and comfortable all day. – I would say that this is true. Unlike most matte lippies, this does not feel bothersome. It does not feel moisturizing, but it’s not uncomfortably drying as well. Lightweight is a good term for it.
  • There were days that this applied smoothly, and there where days that this looked really patchy. Hence, the quality of the lippie depends on the condition of your lips. So I can’t stress enough how important it is to moisturize and exfoliate your lips.
  • It is also important to not over-apply it. As you apply more, there’s a tendency that the product on your lips will be thicker, hence will look very weird when it dried down to matte. It would look like dried cement. Not a good look.
  • Longevity is decent. It may seem like it would crumble away, specially since the formula dries down to powder-ish matte, but it did survived my morning coffee and lunch. A round of applause.
  • I love the smell, but it might bother some people. It’s sweet – very vanilla-ish and cupcake-ish. Vanilla Cupcake-ish. Please forgive my lack of descriptive words. The scent is very comparable to that of Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream and a watered down smell of Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor.
  • Lucky for us nation with no physical Sephora store, these babies are available online at Sephora PH for Php804. It’s less expensive in Thb if you convert it (Tbh 470 = Php 611, if Tbh 1 = Php 1.3).
  • Will I buy this again? Perhaps on my next visit abroad, or I could ask some friends for a favor and buy this on the physical store.  don’t think I would spend Php 800+ for these, so either I’ll wait for a sale, or wait for a physical Sephora Philippines store. Please bring Sephora to the Philippines huhuhuhu
