A while ago when I swapped with Daria I was lucky enough to receive of couple of Sephora Lip Products. I have been trying them both out for a while now and thought it was time to share my thoughts on them.
First up is a Sephora Colour Lip Last in Pink Sunset. This lipstick claims to wear 10 hours and has a waterproof formula. First up, I love the packaging on this lipstick. I wish all lipsticks could be in slimline packaging, it's just so convenient.
Pink Sunset is a beautiful bright pink with a matte finish. This colour is really up my alley, it looks just so bright on the lips. Formulation wise, this lipstick has a drier texture however I don't find that it dries my lips out too badly. It's not exactly a moisturising formula but I have certainly worn more dying mattes before. The main thing that I really, really love about this lipstick is it's longevity. This lipstick really does last all day on me. I don't think you exactly get 10 hours, however I have gotten 6-8 hours of wear out of this lipstick with no problems. This is a lipstick I will reach for if I am going into the city all day or going out for a long night for sure. I am really interested in picking up some more shades of this formulation!

Secondly we have a Sephora Ultra Shine Lipgloss in Love Me Pink. This claims to be a moisturising forumla with strong pigmentation. The packaging is just a classic clear lipgloss tube with a doe foot applicator, nothing that special to be honest!
There is something about the smell and texture of this lipgloss that really puts me off. It kind of smells like fermented fruit and the texture is quite gluggy and wet. I can barely wear this lipgloss for 5 minutes without wanting to get it off my lips as soon as possible! Yes it is a non sticky formula, but I almost feel like this lipstick is going to drip off my lips. I know that sounds really gross, I'm sorry!
The base of this lipgloss is a bright pink, as with the lipstick, however it contains blue reflecting microshimmer. This microshimmer tends to turn the overall look of this lipgloss to blue toned, which also looks really bad with my skintone. Blue based pinks have never looked good on me sadly :(
