One Red Lip To Rule Them All


I talk about red lips a lot on here. It's rare that I don't have a new one on the go; you'd be surprised how many shades of red there are on the spectrum... especially if you're more than a little bit addicted to them. I don't think anybody would entertain buying me yet another red lipstick as a gift - apart from my fabulous partner in crime Sinéad, who gifted me just that from Sephora in Barcelona.

The lipstick in question? Sephora Cream Lip Stain in 01. I'm obsessed with a classic matte, blue toned red and this fits the bill perfectly without being quite as taxing on the lips as, say, MAC Ruby Woo. The shade is so strong - a real power red.


I'm a bit of a sloppy bitch; I'm forever getting lipstick all over my teeth, and it's even been known to show up on my nose and chin, so I always appreciate staying power - and this stuff lasts. It beats all of my other matte liquid lipsticks and normal bullet ones - it just stays. The above (grainy) selfie was taken straight after a massive mug of tea - good going, right?! I've also worn this through an evening at the pub with no touchups - it's amazing how far the formula goes. By nature this is a slightly drying formula, but nothing that a bit of prep with lip balm won't look after.

I know that not very long ago I blogged about a very long-lasting lip combo; think of this product as a slightly more efficient, more matte version of that. The applicator of this stain is really precise, making it easy to achieve a neat shape. I can't get over how great this product is - they're available in European and US Sephoras, and I think that Sephora France might even deliver here. However you get your hands on these babies, they are so worth the effort, and only €10.95, too. I plan on collecting a ton more colours!

  1. Blue toned reds are my favourite, especially all these liquid lipsticks that are around at the moment. I've never seen Sephoras version before, need to get my hands on it x

  3. It looks so gorgeous on you Dee! I've been dying to try this ever since I saw it on Lily Pebbles. It seems like it is similar to the Lime Crime Velvetines which I really love, will have to see if my Aunt in the states will sent one over to me! ;)
