Sephora Rouge Cream Lipstick in Mr. Lover is a bright fuchsia. It is not so bright that it’s neon, but it definitely will turn heads on the street! The Sephora rouge cream lipstick line is described as “A revamp of the iconic Sephora Lip Attitude Chic, this new hydrating formula provides improved coverage and is rife with pigment. The creamy texture softly glazes your lips, imparting just the right amount of color and sheen.”
This is definitely a head turning color, and quite possibly the brightest colour I have ever tried that’s not a red. However, I think this is a great shade for anyone who is ready to turn some heads on the street (in a good way). It’s definitely bright, but it’s not neon, and it’s not too cool or warm toned, so I feel like this would suit a variety of skin tone. The lipstick is true to its “cream” finish, and glides onto lips easily. One swipe on the lips yield opaque pigmentation. It did not collect into the fine lines, nor did it exaggerate all the crevices on the lips. It has a slight fruity scent, almost like those Welch fruit gummies. It even tasted a little like that, although it has a very faint taste. I don’t usually enjoy lipsticks with scent/taste, but I didn’t mind this one. It is non-drying (but not moisturizing), and wore for close to 7-8 hours. It does leave a colour on the lips after the lipstick fades, and it might be a plus for some, and a con for others.
The package is a simple, black round tube that tapers near the center. The lower part of the lipstick has “Sephora” printed on it. The name of the lipstick isn’t shown anywhere on the outer package, although the bottom of the lipstick shows the color. The name is printed on a sticker that’s stuck to the body of the tube, which I find a little annoying, since I like to see the name of the shade before I have to open it, but it’s just a minor complaint.
Bottom line: If you are looking for a bright fuchsia lipstick that is non-drying, with an okay price tag, then this is your lipstick!
