Once On the Lips

For years my daily lip routine has consisted of a lipstain and a slick of gloss; however, I have recently become keen on wearing lipstick. It’s part of my bid to be taken seriously as an adult… I’ll let you know how that turns out. I do have a few in my collection but they are all bright red or pink, not very daytime or office friendly. 

Off I went to Sephora in the hopes of securing a nice berry shade. I immediately flagged down one of the shop assistants and presented her with the daunting task of helping me find a “berry nude… you know?”

Friends, she knew. After a brief kerfuffle in which she attempted to lead me to the YSL section (she was quickly informed that I don’t have that many pennies) we landed at the Sephora Collection. She waved her hand over the lipsticks and pulled out the perfect shade! It was just like magic!

The winner? Sephora Collection Rouge Shine Lipstick in No. 37 (Sweet Dreams). This lipstick is glossy perfection at the reasonable price point of $15. It’s fairly long-wearing, lasting on me from 8:00 am to noon and through two cups of coffee, a tea, and the cupcake muffin banana I eat for breakfast. I reapply it after lunch and then I’m good for the rest of the afternoon. It’s non-drying, the consistency reminds me of a lip butter. It’s also lightly berry flavoured scented. The major bonus for me is that it does not bleed, which is usually a major problem.

If you’re looking for a nice lipstick at a reasonable price the Sephora Collection is a safe bet. I’ve yet to try anything else from this line but I’m certainly going to come back to it for future purchases!

This colour is only a shade or two darker than my natural lip colour, which makes it easy to wear and match with the rest of my make-up.

 Have you tried the Sephora Collection?
