If you caught my post last week on the first Sephora lippy I tried, one of their matte jumbo lip pencils, you will know that I was very disappointed in it. Though the colour was nice, the formula was far too dry and I didn’t like wearing it at all.
Apart from the colour, the thing I liked most about this was its unusual formula. When you first apply it, it is very creamy, so much so, you expect it to have a cream or satin finish. But, after a minute or two it somehow goes from super creamy to super matte and I have no idea how! I don’t think I’ve ever tried a matte lipstick that was incredibly creamy on application, but matte on finish. What’s more, I loved it.
Of course being a matte finish, the staying power was very good, and it lasted for a good few hours without having to reapply. It says on the packaging that it lasts for 10 hours, but while I don’t think it lasted that long exactly, it really wasn’t too far off.
