I’m soooo excited to show you all my HG red lipstick..not exactly a lipstick more like a lip cream but it’s just fabulous!!! A red lipstick can make you look sexy in a second. It’s a must have for every girl!! So without much blabbering I’ll get on with the review.
What it is:
A lip stain that provides beautiful, long-lasting color.
What it does:
This high-coverage lip product features avocado oil for a texture that transforms as you wear it: when applied, the initial cream texture becomes a silky, lightweight stain. Lips achieve stunning color and feel soft and comfortable.
What else you need to know:
Available in an array of rich shades, including both matte and satin finishes, with intense color that stays put.
My Take on Sephora Always Red 01 Lip Cream Stain:
The packaging is pretty, these lip creams come in a lip gloss like packaging. It comes with a doe foot applicator which is okay. I find it tricky to use because it’s not that friendly for people who are newbies at the whole lip cream shenanigan. I always end up making mistakes and its soooo difficult to correct it as it is a very bold shade. I have to go again and again with a wipe and then I end up using a concealer around the edges to get the perfect red lip.
Always red is a true red color. It’s not too deep not too bright it’s just right. It’s definitely been my go to color and I always wear it on special occasions when I want to look super glam. It will look good on every skin tone.
These lip cream stains are insanely pigmented. They’re the most opaque cream lipsticks I have ever tried. The color is soooo intense with just one swipe. It definitely will cover pigmented lips with just one coat. The texture is very creamy, not so creamy that it ends up being slippery. It goes on like a gloss but dries up matte. I think its matte-er than Ruby woo so it’s a very high maintenance product. You have to prep your lips before applying it. If your lips are dry and flakey it will accentuate the dryness and will end up looking bad. So you have to scrub your lips and use lip balm before applying the lip cream.
The staying power is mind blowing. It stays on for hours!! It survives meals. I hardly need to touch up which is a major pro for me. It does not bleed at all. It doesn’t even transfer to cups or glasses. They don’t budge if you use a normal makeup wipe. You need to use something oil-based to remove it completely. I always use baby oil to remove it and it comes off with ease. I’m absolutely in love with these cream lip stains!
Pros of Sephora Always Red 01 Lip Cream Stain:
- Beautiful color. Perfect red, will suit all skin tones.
- Staying power- upto 6 hours!
- Sephora lip cream stains come in various colors. So you have a lot of options to choose from.
- Texture. Creamy and sets into a matte finish.
- Price. Very affordable.
- Doesn’t bleed or transfer.
Cons of Sephora Always Red 01 Lip Cream Stain:
- I always have trouble applying it without making a mistake. But concealer always saves the day.
IMBB rating: 4.9/5
