Sephora Not Your Baby, Rise Up, Stronger Rouge Lacquers Reviews & Swatches

Sephora Not Your Baby (15) Rouge Lacquer ($13.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a medium pink with moderate, warm undertones and a glossy, craem finish. It had good pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without dragging. There was a smidgen of product in my deeper lip lines but not enough that it was noticeable from a normal viewing distance. The texture was lightly creamy, emollient without being too slippery, though it melted easily against my lips so be careful not to over-apply (it’s so smooth!). It wore well for four and a half 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 Rise Up (03) Rouge Lacquer ($13.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. It had good color coverage–just shy of full coverage–that applied fairly evenly, though it had a more slippery texture that did show in the application. There was a bit of product that sat in my deeper lip lines and light streaking along the edges of my lips. While the consistency was comfortable to apply and glided easily across my lips, the creaminess could have been dialed back ever-so-slightly to make it more flattering on. It stayed on well for four hours and was lightly moisturizing while worn.
