The Sephora 01 Always Red Cream Lip Stain | Review

After forever and I day, last year I finally tried the Sephora make up range. Whilst I was in Italy in July 2017 I had to go into Sephora as there isn’t currently one where I live. It took me so long to buy something even though I’ve wanted to try something from their rage for so long.

I ended up with a liquid lipstick. Personally, I buy a lot of lip product, especially in the colour red. However, I hadn’t tried liquid lipsticks so I decided to branch out and try a different brand & formula. I was drawn to Sephora Cream Lip Stain as I’ve heard nothing but great reviews for 2 years about them so I caved into the hype.

What the brand says about the cream lip stain:

“A silky, long-lasting lip stain that keeps lips covered with bold colour from AM to PM—no need to reapply or touch up throughout the day. This bestselling, high-coverage lip colour glides on smooth and transforms from a creamy texture into a silky, lightweight stain. Infused with avocado oil, the long-lasting formula delivers rich colour that feels comfortable, is never sticky, and won’t dry out lips.”

There are 40 colours in the range and they all retail at £10 but the colour I opted to buy was the 01 Always Red, the perfect intense cherry red. I have to say it is the most beautiful matte red in my collection currently. 

It’s a liquid lipstick with a totally matte finish, a lightweight feeling and has an intense colour on the lips. I find that it doesn’t transfer and it’s very comfortable to wear due to the avocado oil it has in it. However, I do not find it as long lasting as I would have liked as I have to retouch my inner lips every 2-4 hours.

The packaging is very simple, which I love. I’m not a fan of fussy packaging at all. It’s just a simple plastic tube with the average capacity of 5ml. The applicator is precise which I will happily admit that I need!

In summary, it’s a gorgeous velvety formula for a matte liquid lipstick and not drying. It isn’t overpriced and there are a wide range of colours. I really think that this lipstick is worth trying as it’s everything you could want in a lipstick.

Until next time,

  1. Interesting read! My colleague recommended this product to me as well just this week. It's going to be my next lip stain try. The wearing on the inside of the lip is a little expected based on my experience with a few lip stains. I'm just hoping that it will have a better hold on the majority of my lips in comparison to the brand that I'm currently wearing which is Younique. This brand is a littler better than what the drug store carries, but it's not fab.

  2. I really wish I'd bought some lipsticks when I was in Sydney because we don't have Sephora in England!! I'm getting serious FOMO looking at that red...
