Skin Tone: Medium to Dusky
Today, I am going to talk about the Sephora Collection Lipstories Lipstick in the shade “31 Golden Gate“. Let’s see how this worked for me.
$8 AUD for 4g
This is lipstick for real life, not just ring lights—lipsticks for celebrating the wild adventures, best moments, and magical memories in your life. So grab a shade or four and take your lipstick outside. See you out there!
What it is:
A high-pigment, lightweight lipstick that provides full-coverage color in one swipe. Available in 40 shades and three finishes: matte, cream, and metal.
My Experience with Sephora Collection Lipstories Lipstick 31 Golden Gate:
Sephora Lip stories are ultra affordable bullet lipsticks which are available in a wide variety of shades and three different finishes of matte, metallic, and cream. Sephora have named them as Lipstories as Sephora aims for you to create your own story across social media using these lipsticks with the hashtag #lipstories. They feel like these lipstick shades can evoke a certain memory or even create a new one and each of these lipsticks is inspired by a story, adventure, or experience in your life that has happened or is awaiting for you to create. I think that this is a cute idea and a completely affordable one as well as they are a mere eight US dollars each, which means you can happily pick up a few shades without breaking the bank.
Packaging: The packaging of these is super cute and individualized for each shade. The packaging depicts the stories behind the lipstick shade, for example a shade called “Berrylicious“ has berry pictures embossed on the cardboard casing. There is also a color-coded band at the bottom of the bullet which depicts the shade of the lipstick. Though the packaging is cute, it still feels cheap as the caps are made out of cardboard, and the bases are made out of plastic. This does not really bother me as the quality of the lipstick itself is amazing and we can’t ask for more at this price.
Shade: As I already told you, there are three finishes in these lippies- matte, cream and metallic. Depending on which finish you get, either #metal, #matte or #cream is embossed on the side of the lipstick bullet, which is a nice detail. These come in a whooping array of fourty shades and there is something for everyone. “Golden Gate” is a beautiful berry pink shade. This is one of my favorite shades out of all the lipsticks I picked up. This is a matte lipstick and will look beautiful on everyone. This is a breezy shade that will make anyone look cute and graceful.
Formula: The formula of these lipsticks are amazing. They are super lightweight, comfortable and have a creamy texture that gives an easy, smooth glide across my lips. The pigmentation is incredible and the color is full on opaque in a single swipe. There is no particular fragrance or flavor to these. These apply very well without tugging and pulling and settle on to give a satin matte finish.
Staying Power: Since these are regular lipsticks, they last for about four to five hours. They do transfer to everything, but that doesn’t stop them from leaving a stain behind even when the whole lipstick wears off.
These Sephora lipsticks also have an incredible value for money. They give about 4 g of product which is greater than most of the lipsticks in market for an mere 8$. Sephora knows how to do great lipsticks, in the past their liquid lipsticks use to rule and now they have turned the clock with the lipstories. Overall, I love these lipsticks as they are really creamy and comfortable matte lipstick and I highly recommend to everyone!
