#Lipstories: Matinée

If you’ve visited a Sephora lately you may have noticed the wall of colorful lipsticks from the brand’s #Lipstories collection. Each bullet is beautifully decorated with an image that is meant to illicit am emotion related to that specific shade. The packaging is very little plastic and mostly durable paper, making it a sustainable alternative to many lipsticks on the market.

A #Lipstories lipstick will be either matte, metallic, or creamy and we will be testing out a new one every week. Rankings will be given based on wearability, ease of application, and overall feel on the lips. Tune in every week to see our results!

This week we test-drove:



This creamy lipstick was the perfect blend of brown and red (bred?). This is a universally flattering brick red color that could also double as a blush color on the cheeks. Two bones to pick, though.

  1. The application was not the neatest and I needed to use a brush to clean the edges.

  2. The lipstick wore off after my first cup of coffee.

Overall? Great packaging and pigment, not the best formula for makeup newbies or those that are dabbling in the red lip game.
