PART II - MY SEPHORA COLLECTION END OF THE WEEK PICKS FEAT. SEPHORA'S ROUGE LIPSTICK + LONG LASTING COLOURFUL MATTE EYESHADOW SWATCH + REVIEWS!


HAPPY FRIDAY BEAUTIES,
TGIF!


“A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.” 


It's that time of week and we all know what that means...HELLO Weekends! Yup that means more time for shopping, swatching out products, trying new outfits and getting your Spring closet back in for this lovely season. Last week, if you haven't already checked out but I included a full review of Sephora's beauty sponge and their Sephora nail polish collection. If you missed out on it, catch up on your reading by going HERE to check out my last week's Sephora EOW picks. 

Today I will be swatching Sephora's lipstick and eyeshadow from their Sephora branded collection of which I am super excited to show and tell you guys all about. I've always wondered about their brand itself and whether it would be pigmented, whether it would work for me and most importantly does it really give me that fab finished look? To answer my own questions, I looked to take these products through a tried and tested stage. 

To hear more, scroll below to see my thoughts on Sephora's Rouge lipstick and also their Colorful eyeshadow range




SEPHORA COLLECTION, ROUGE LIPSTICK, IN SHADE: CALI GIRL. 

Featuring a very hydrating lipstick that creates fuller looking lips with more intense colour. 

So this is a revamp of the iconic Sephora "Lip Attitude Chic" where it now comes with a new formula which makes this lipstick very hydrating when used onto the lips. This lipsticks also provides a full and improved coverage with really great pigmentation to it. There's no tugging or need to keep applying the lipstick to achieve a darker look. I only used one layer on my lips to give it more of an intense and colourful look to it. The texture is really creamy and it goes very softly when you run it across your lips. It has a the right amount of colour and sheen to it which is a great aspect to this edition. 

The shade in "Cali Girl" is a gorgeous magenta pink that really pops out with its vibrant colour. The staying power and longevity of the lipsticks stays on quite longer than the other lipsticks I've tried on which I was quite happy about. The product also has a slight fruity scent to it but it disappears. The lipstick bullet is curved shaped so that means you get a better aim perfecting the lippie on the edges of your lips. Before applying the lipstick, it's always recommended to prep your lips. You can always look to gently exfoliate with a wet towel first and then add a layer of clear lip balm underneath but this is only optional. Being a really hydrating lipstick, my lips felt super hydrated and there were no signs of flakiness which is was a positive aspect. I am always looking for hydrating based lipsticks because they go easier on my lips whilst also providing a hydrating element for them. 

The packaging comes in a black tube which is the Sephora's brand signature look. It's easy to open and close and I have found no issues with the handling of the product. It's definitely cute and convenient to have in your handbag. 

Overall, I am very satisfied with this product because I have more confidence in trying the other Sephora Collection products now. There's a HUGE selection of other gorgeous and beautiful shades so check it out the next time you're at Sephora. 

BEAUTY TIPS: 
  • Before applying the lipstick onto your lips, exfoliate your lips with a wet towel first. 
  • Next, you can apply a little lip balm on first. 
  • For longer lasting lipstick, apply your usual face powder with a puff to your lips and then apply your Sephora Rouge lipstick.
  • Apply a lip liner to the inner and outer contours of your lips, and then apply your Sephora Rouge lipstick.

 SWATCHED AND TESTED ! 


SEPHORA COLLECTION, COLORFUL EYESHADOW IN SHADE: BLUEBERRY MUFFIN IN 30. 

Featuring a highly pigmented, long-lasting plum eyeshadow colour. 

This eyeshadow provides for your everyday make-up look or would even suit a special occasion. They're full of high pigmentation and most importantly they're long lasting for about 10 hours as they contain the Color Eye Last complex which includes an exclusive combination of up to 70% pigments and pearl particles. This eyeshadow is super easy to apply as their micronized pigments allow for an ultrasmooth, blendable texture. 

The eyeshadow features a matte-type of plum purple which looks amazing and best of all, it lasts even longer than regular eyeshadows. It really feels natural on the skin and doesn't feel heavy at all which is good. The great aspect of these single eyeshadow products is that you can just choose which shade you will be using quite frequently as opposed to getting a whole set of eyeshadow palettes. That way when you pop it into your bag, it's quite light, easy and super convenient to use. 

I have been really impressed with the Sephora branded quality because it's actually of reasonable quality. 

BEAUTY TIPS: 
  • Apply a light-medium coloured eye shadow all over the eyelid with an all over shadow brush.
  • Can be applied for a natural look or wet for sophisticated look. 
  • Apply an eye shadow base or eyeliner of the same colour before applying eye shadow for optimal wear.
