Found my HG red. From the "rouge cream" collection, the darker, cooler red of Courtisane (02) works to brighten up my face rather than accent any redness I might have going on. I love the satin finish, and a little goes a long way. I wish it was a little more protective or moisturizing, but living in the very windy desert makes a lot of products lack in that respect, so your experience may be quite different!
I have it in #13 and it's got a slight shimmer. It's a bit more sheer then I expected, but I love the colour. It goes on more greasy then I expected from a lipstick, but that doesn't bother it. It has great staying power and the simple packaging is pretty nice. I'd definitely buy agian.
Sephora Lip Attitude No.02 Pink Lover. I was pleasantly surprised by this lipstick and gotten compliments on using this. People usually ask if I'm wearing a gloss but it's the metallic that gives the shimmering look. It comes in a Simple and sleek tube. I hear the color at the bottom of the tube is usuable if u can crack the plastic cover off. This lipstick also doesn't chap your lips. It smells fun, like candy but it's not that strong. I would buy this again because of the price ~$12 CDN and the shade works for me :)
I bought 2 of these for 50% off ($6) on sephora.com. I got shades No. 38 (a bronzy-pink) and No. 50 (deep plum). The packaging is simple, black plastic, and the lid stays on securely. I like that the brand name/shade number is on the inner (base part) of the tube, and there’s a color-indicator at the bottom of the tube, so it’s easy to see what color you choose. These look and feel just a tiny bit greasy, and go on a bit sheerer than I expected, considering it’s a “cream” lipstick. 2-3 coats give me nice, even coverage. Usually I blot and top with clear gloss, for a “stain” effect. The texture is smooth, but the formula is slightly drying (I put a light layer of balm underneath). The staying power is quite good. It lasts about 2-3 hours, and it wears well/fades evenly. These have a slight, sweet, candy-like scent. There’s really nothing exceptional about these lipsticks, except I *really* like the colors I have. The bronzy-pink is a nice shade for everyday wear, and it goes well with many other makeup colors. And the deep plum is surprisingly neutral (not too hot-pink or purple, as most deep shades tend to turn on me). Blotted & topped with gloss it gives me the prettiest, berry-stained lips. I just repurchased both shades (because I feel the need to have a back-up, though I can’t remember the last time I actually ran out of lipstick). I’d recommend it if you find a color that appeals to you. It’s a decent lipstick with above-average staying power, at a drugstore-comparable price. continued >>
I am not a lipstick person at all...I normally wear chapstick...not because I don't like it, but because I can't hold onto lipstick (or sunglasses) long enough to merit spending anything more than a few bucks on it.....lipstick and lipglosses that I own usually end up in the place where socks, quarters and other random things go...the blackholes that are my purses and car.
I happened upon this product, which was selling for $6. I bought it in no38, which is a deep plum bronze color. This is a great deal, as many drugstore makeup products often sell for this price or even more!
I'm very happy with it, the color works well with many different other makeup shades, I can wear it to work without worrying about looking too flashy, and I hope I can hang onto it long enough to reap the rewards of finding such a good deal....
i have this in classic red, which i would never would think would ever look good on my skin tone, but its just my color! it goes on smooth and it was very cheap! only around $6! i dont wear it often because occasions for a red lip is far and few for a 14 year old, but i've always loved the classic red lip, and this is just what i needed!
I have this in Classic Red. The lipstick is creamy, long lasting, and doesn't bleed at all! It smells like bubblegum, which might turn some people off, but this is a very, very decent lipstick.
I bought the 91 color. The color is lovely on my pale skin. It goes on super silky and stays that way for quite a while. Surprisingly long lasting. Doesn't dry out my lips very much. For $10 you can't beat it!
I love this lipstick but I bought it in the wrong color, so I have to wear it with a tinted lipgloss. That seems to be a trend with me. It goes on nice and feels great, the sheer pink just doesn't show up like I thought it would. I love the way it smells though, it's sugary and not chemically like other brands.
My first sephora lipsticks is one of their newest versions, the cream lipstick in #61 (milky pink). It doesn't go on light pink, a MA recommended this to me and everything, and its a crappy low quality, scary grey looking opaque white clown makeup crap. ACK.
