Sephora Cream Lip Stain, Strawberry Kissed ~ Valentine's Day FOTD

On one of my last trips to Sephora I browsed the Sephora line, which I don't usually do. I found these new lip stains and swatched a few and I instantly loved the color intensity. These are super pigmented.

I only bought one to try it out. The color I chose was #03, Strawberry Kissed, it's a bright pinky/red.

I wore it the following day and I have to say I really love it. It's such a beautiful red. In the photos above it looks more like a coral/red but it's really a pinkish/red.

Sephora says these are long lasting, so I decided to put it to the test. I applied the Cream Lip Stain in the morning at around 9am and it lasted ALL day! I was actually surprised by this. I ate, drank, and kissed my son and my hubby and it lasted till I took it off at around 9pm. It did fade a bit but not to the point where I would have to re-apply. I was really impressed with it's long wear capability.

Even though its a stain it isn't too drying on the lips. If that's a problem for you, you can always dab on a bit of lip balm or lip gloss on top. Also this isn't one of those like clear lip stains, it is a cream so it applies more like a lipstick and dries down to a stained matte finish.

Above~ First swatch just applied, second swatch after it dries down.

The only problem I had with these is the wand pulls out a lot of product, there is a stopper but it's too wide, so you have to wipe off most of the product at the top of the tube, but that's not too big of a deal.

This would be such a pretty color to wear for Valentine's Day! Here is my FOTD, that I will be wearing again for tomorrow even though I won't be going anywhere :( Hubby works 3-11 so that doesn't give us time for anything. First photo is in the morning, that I took with my phone, second photo is in the evening around 8pm.

Eyes ~ Senna Cosmetics Hot Chocolate Palette (I'm  obsessed with this right now. I might do a favorites post soon because I have a lot of favorite things at the moment!)  :)

uhm wow, I feel like I NEED this product. And $12 is SO affordable... pretty dead on close to the majority of drugstore products that preach to do the same thing.
