#Lipstories: Hot In Havana

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!

We bring you:

Hot in Havana


This is definitely a bold alternative to last week’s trial. A bright and fun color that definitely gives me Cuba feels. This is the perfect lippie to update your vacation style or revamp your red lip for a special occasion. If you work in an open-minded environment, you can even pop it on to give you a boost towards the end of the week.

So go ahead and mix yourself a mojito, put on some Celia Cruz, and enjoy being Hot in Havana.
