#Lipstories: Ouch!

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:



So here’s where I look like a glamorous frostbitten witch. Maybe this shade is appropriate for your Halloween costume of Rose from the Titanic or Poison Ivy from Batman but not for an every day stroll around the neighborhood. I guess that also depends on what neighborhood you’re in, though.

Overall, this was the least wearable of all the shades I’ve tried so far…on my lips. This shade as a cream eyeshadow will look way more fun and wearable. The fairer you are, the more you’ll want to avoid this shade on your lips. Or you could just grab a black turtleneck and own your new role in the Blue Man Group.
