Sephora Dare to Be & Rise Above Rouge Lacquers Reviews & Swatches

Sephora Dare to Be (28) Rouge Lacquer is a light, bubblegum pink with cool, bluish undertones and a glossy, cream finish. It had medium to semi-opaque color coverage that didn’t build up well due to the more emollient consistency that became quite slippery when built up. The texture was lightweight, creamy, and comfortable to apply and to wear, but I found that this shade had enough slip that it did sink into my lip lines more noticeably. It lasted for three hours and was lightly hydrating over time.

Sephora Rise Above (17) Rouge Lacquer is a medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and a glossy, cream finish. It had good color payoff in a single layer, which adhered fairly evenly and smoothly across my lips. The lipstick felt creamy with moderate slip, and it did settle into my lip lines a bit, but it wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance. It stayed on well for four hours and was lightly moisturizing while worn.
