5-0 Grind (56)
Sephora 5-0 (56) Grind Lipstories Lipstick is a bright, periwinkle blue with strong, cool undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which applied decently but had room for improvement–there was slight unevenness along the edges, especially along my lip lines. I also had product sink into my lip lines enough that it was noticeable in person. The lipstick had a creamy, smooth consistency that didn’t feel overly emollient, so it didn’t slide around while worn. It stayed on well for four hours on me and felt lightly hydrating over time.
It’s Electric (57)
Sephora It’s Electric (57) Lipstories Lipstick is a deep, eggplant purple base with warmer undertones and cooler purple and violet shimmer. It had an emollient consistency that felt a little slippery as it glided across my lips, and while it didn’t sink too noticeably into my lip lines, it was uneven. It had semi-sheer pigmentation that wasn’t buildable, and it was the type of product that I’d recommend wearing over a lip liner to help minimize the patchiness and reduce the slip. This shade lasted well for three and a half hours but sank more and more into my lip lines over time. On the upside, it was comfortable to wear and lightly moisturizing over time.
