Fifty Shades of Red – Part 2

You lipstick fiends look hungry for some new flavours! 

After my last post about my favourite lipsticks I got so many awesome suggestions for longwear lipsticks to try, so I went to Sephora and picked up a couple.  My friend Kate suggested I try the Sephora Cream Lip Stain in “001 Always Red” which I grabbed along with a new product Sephora has launched called Rouge Infusion Lip Stain, which I got in the shade “Cherry Nectar”.

Sephora Cream Lip Stain – Always Red

As I sit here with this lipstick on I am realizing how much nicer it is than the MAC equivalent!  They are almost identical in colour and at $16  it definitely beats the $29 MAC product, though I think the MAC longwear is still the longest lasting of all the ones I’ve tried.  Still, it is doing a great job of staying on while also being very light and comfortable to wear.  The MAC lipstick is really dry if you don’t use the top coat, but this lipstick has more moisture and I can hardly even feel it on my lips.  This will probably be my new go-to for an everyday, classic red!  Thanks Kate for your wonderful suggestion!!

Sephora Rouge Infusion Lip Stain – Cherry Nectar

Guys… I can’t believe I’m saying this but, this is my new favourite lipstick.  Not only is it a luscious deep, sexy, purpley red, it also lasts really well (passing the makeout test).  It goes on wet and stays really moist on your lips.  At first I was concerned that it wasn’t drying but when I pressed my lips to my hand there was no transfer.  It almost feels like a lip balm but stays like a longwear.  Excellent product, I’m very impressed with it and will definitely be going back to get a few more colours.
