Sephora Fearless, No Regrets, Squad Goals Rouge Lacquers Reviews & Swatches

Sephora Fearless (25) Rouge Lacquer ($13.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a soft, light-medium coral with warm, peach tones and a cream finish. It had good pigmentation in a single layer, but it didn’t apply as evenly as desired given that the product clumped up along any imperfections on my lips. The texture was lightweight, creamy with moderate slip, and comfortable to apply and to wear, but there was product that settled into my lip lines while worn. It lasted well for four hours and was lightly hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$13.00/0.1 oz. – $130.00 Per Ounce

The lipstick is supposed to have a “silky smooth melting formula” that yields “intense long-lasting color and high-shine” with “instant hydration.” Most shades were creamy without being so slippery that they felt that way or went on unevenly. They do melt quickly, though, so if they are left in a warmer area (with all my photography lights running) and applied, they feel substantially creamier than at room temperature (about 72 degrees).

The texture was smooth, creamy, and comfortable to apply and to wear with most of the shades applying well, though lighter and very deep shades tended to have application problems. The lighter shades tended to separate and sit in my lip lines, while deeper shades were less pigmented and more prone to patchiness (but didn’t pull into my lip lines as noticeably as the lighter shades did). The majority of the shades had semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation with a few coming in at more medium to semi-opaque coverage.

As there are 30 shades in the range, wear time definitely varied from three to six hours, depending on depth and pigment level with deeper, redder shades lasting longer than pale beiges and peaches. The formula has been moderately hydrating without feathering on me so far, but I’m not particularly prone to that but would worry about it for those who find it a more frequent occurrence with some of the deeper shades in the lineup.

They had a scent that Sephora lists as having these notes: “vanilla, peony, and intrepid patchouli,” and I’d describe the scent as a subtle, sweet, vanilla-floral hybrid mix (nothing specific to my nose) and on most shades, I didn’t notice a taste but some shades gave me a bit of one (enough that I was like, “hmm”).

Sephora No Regrets (21) Rouge Lacquer ($13.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a muted, rosy brown with subtle, warm undertones and a glossy, cream finish. For as much as slip as the formula had, the color went on fairly evenly and didn’t settle into my lip lines as much as I would have expected. It had good pigmentation in a single layer that applied without dragging. The lipstick had a lightly creamy, balm-like feel as it went across my lips that melted quickly. It stayed on nicely for four hours and was lightly moisturizing while worn.

Sephora Squad Goals (20) Rouge Lacquer ($13.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a medium-dark taupe with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff that adhered evenly and smoothly across my lips. The texture was lightweight, creamy, and emollient without being too slippery that it slid around during wear. The application was much more flattering on my lips as the formula didn’t emphasize imperfections or my lip lines. This shade wore well for four hours and was lightly hydrating over time.
