Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain in "07 Cherry Blossom" & "09 Watermelon Slice": Review and Swatches
New from the Sephora Collection is a line of liquid lipsticks called the Cream Lip Stains ($16 CAD). Made with avocado oil, the lip colors apply like a cream but settles to a long lasting matte finish. To see a couple shades from the Cream Lip Stains line, click.......

Packaging:
The Cream Lip Stain comes in a simple lip gloss tube with a doe-foot applicator. The line includes 14 shades; the doe-foot applicator provides a precise enough application unless you are working with a few of the darker shades, which should probably be applied with a lip liner.

Formulation:
Despite the name, the Cream Lip Stain really isn't a lip stain. The color applies creamy and soft but sets into a matte, non-transferring liquid lipstick finish. The formulation is comparable to the liquid lipsticks from Kat Von D. The formulation is not very moisturizing as it is very matte but I wouldn't say it's drying. The color is definitely kissproof but it will fade with a rich meal.

"09 Watermelon Slice": Summery coral, the pigmentation is phenomenal
"07 Cherry Blossom": A pretty medium pink, also very pigmented despite being such a light color

Overall:
Although these are more like liquid lipsticks as opposed to lip creams, the formulation is fabulous! The pigmentation is great and the wear is completely transfer-proof! The only downside is that the colors are a tad drying but if you are into the bold matte finish, you will love these regardless.

Availability:
Sephora Collection is available online and in stores at Sephora.
