But First Coffee (58)

Sephora But First Coffee (58) Lipstories Lipstick ($8.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a rich, deep red-brown with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had rich pigmentation in a single layer, which glided effortlessly across my lips and delivered a smooth, even application. The texture felt lightweight, creamy without being too slippery, and was comfortable to wear. It stayed on nicely for five hours and was lightly hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$8.00/0.14 oz. – $57.14 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be “lightweight” with “full-coverage color in one swipe.” The majority of shades were pigmented with semi-opaque to full color payoff in a single layer, as described. The more shimmery shades tended to be a bit sheerer overall, while the mattes and creams were usually closer to opaque in coverage. The textures were typically creamy, lightweight, and not too thin or too thick on the lips, so they were comfortable to apply and to wear. There were some shades where the color pulled into my deeper lip lines upon application, and it was more or less noticeable just depending on the color and finish of the particular.

Some shades seemed hydrating and others were non-drying. They lasted anywhere from three to over six hours on me. There was a subtle, sweet, fruity scent (I couldn’t detect it on, just in the tube), and I haven’t noticed any taste after wearing them.

Vacation Goals (59)

Sephora Vacation Goals (59) Lipstories Lipstick ($8.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium taupe-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. It had opaque color coverage that adhered evenly and smoothly across my lips. The consistency was lightweight, creamy without being too thick or too slippery, though I had some product sink into my deeper lip lines. Thankfully, the settling wasn’t noticeable in person, just in the close-up photos. It wore well for four and a half hours and felt lightly moisturizing while worn.

Backstage (60)

Sephora Backstage (60) Lipstories Lipstick ($8.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a deep taupe base with green and gold shimmer and light sparkle. It was an interesting, complex color that was harder to dupe, partially because this combination of color and shimmer is hardly ever released! The texture was lightweight, creamy with some slip so it glided on without tugging on my lips but felt a little slippery during wear. There was some product that sank into my deeper lip lines, though the shimmer camouflaged some of that in person. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that could have applied more evenly. It lasted well for four and a half hours on me and was lightly hydrating.
