Sephora Aquarius (87) Lipstories Lipstick is a light-medium peach base with flecks of pink and gold micro-sparkle paired with a glossy finish. It had semi-sheer color coverage, which was at odds with the claims the formula made. The texture was lightweight with moderate slip and settled slightly into my deeper lip lines. It wore well for three hours and felt lightly hydrating over time.
Sephora Pisces (88) Lipstories Lipstick is a medium-dark pink-coral with subtle, warm undertones and a lightly glossy, cream finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation paired with a lightweight, creamy consistency with moderate slip. The lipstick was comfortable to apply and to wear, though I found this shade was more prone to separating along my lip lines and catching on any minor imperfections of lip texture. It lasted for four hours and felt lightly moisturizing over time.
Sephora Aries (89) Lipstories Lipstick is a vivid, medium red with moderate, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had rich color payoff in a single stroke, which applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without tugging. The consistency felt lightly creamy but more velvety and moderately dense. There was a smidgen of product that settled into my deeper lip lines that I saw in the close-up but didn’t detect in person. It stayed on nicely for five and a half hours, left a soft stain behind, and felt lightly hydrating over time.
