Sephora Luster Matte Long-wear Lip Color in "Orchid Luster": Review and Swatches
Earlier this year, Sephora released the matte Cream Lip Stains, which received tons of love from matte lip lovers. Now for Summer 2015, the brand is adding a new line called the Luster Matte Long-Wear Lip Colors ($20 CAD). Available in twelve shades, these creamy, lightweight lip colors feature an opaque coverage with a subtle sheen. To see a swatch of the shade "Orchid Luster", click.......

Packaging:
The Luster Matte Long-Wear Lip Color comes in a simple lip gloss tube, nothing fancy. The applicator is a flat doe-foot; it works fairly well at applying the color, but I would definitely use a lip brush to achieve clean lines.

Formulation:
Creamy, rich, and incredibly pigmented, the Luster Matte Long-Wear Lip Colors are liquid lipsticks with a lightweight and non-sticky texture. "Orchid Luster" is a bright cool-tone pink. The lip color doesn't set so it has a subtle sheen. The formula is moisturizing but not very long-wearing as the color easily transfers. With a shade like "Orchid Luster", though, the color will leave behind a nice stain even when the product wears off.

Overall:
I quite enjoyed these. The formulation reminds me of the Hourglass liquid lipsticks, except that these feature a much better texture. The pigmentation is phenomenal, the only downside is that these are not transfer-proof. If you are looking for something that's super matte and kiss-proof, definitely check out the Cream Lip Stains!

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