Sephora Rouge Infusion – Red Essence

Sephora Collection Rouge Infusion in 10 Red Essence .lipJPGWe’re nearing the end of this series guys, are you going to miss it? I kind of am but my chapped lips are NOT! They could do with less lip swatches and more lip BALM, for sure! This lip paint was one of the products I was most excited to try as I’d heard do much about it but in hindsight.. I think this may not be what I thought it was. Hmm. I’m not entirely sure what the other product is called and as I type this it’s too late and I’m too tired and lazy to google it but if you know.. y’know.. leave a comment. I’d heard a lot about some long wearing lip product from Sephora that was ‘totes amaze’, life changing etc but this was a considerable let down given my expectations. I thought it would be a matte cream type of texture but it’s more like a sticky gloss stain.. only it doesn’t really stay put.

Sephora Collection Rouge Infusion in 10 Red Essence  tubeSephora Collection Rouge Infusion in 10 Red EssenceIt does last pretty well compared to your average lipstick but it doesn’t wear well. Within an hour it was patchy and uneven in colour, just not pretty at all. If this IS the thing people rave about then I just don’t get it. It’s not so nice to apply, quite uncomfortable to wear and honestly besides the sleek packaging and reasonable price (it’s Sephora’s own brand after all) there’s not much I can say to the positive here.

Although this isn’t quite the last lip from the Give Me More set it’s definitely the last miss and you’ll be happy to know (or maybe you wont.. I don’t really know you) I’m saving one of the best til last!!

    Pretty colour for sure but no staying power is just no good, wouldn’t survive one glass of vino by the sounds of it! No good for the party season!

    I think I know the Sephora lipstick you mean – it’s their cream lip stain in the shade Always Red…a gorgeous matte red!

    this is the lip stain but everyone raves about the lip creams which are matte and different lip products x

    Hi there! 🙂

    I think the sephora lip product you had in mind is the cream lip stain 😉 it’s completely different from this one (it IS matte and it does last a long time!) 😀

    Such a pretty color! Bummer that it wasn’t as good as you thought it would be.

    You’re probably thinking of the lip creams… I have endless purple and it’s bewitching!!! It’s a shame it didn’t work for you, the colour is great.
