Sephora Plum Lip Last Matte Lipstick is a muted, medium-dark plum with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The initial finish had a bit of shine to it, but it set after five minutes or so to a mostly flat, matte finish. The texture was lightweight and thin, yet very velvety so it glided across my lips with ease but didn’t feel traditionally wet or creamy.
The product applied evenly with a bit of product that sat in my lip lines that I was able to smooth out after letting it set for two minutes. The nice thing about the dry down/setting of the formula was how flexible it felt on my lips, while it was transfer-resistant and longer-wearing than traditional lipstick. It lasted nicely for six hours and felt non-drying while worn.
Sephora Mulberry Lip Last Matte Lipstick is a deep, raspberry pink with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation delivered in a single, fluid stroke. The texture was velvety, lightweight, and thin; it felt more emollient and glided on initially before setting to a more matte finish (though it took a few minutes).
The upside was the dry down was still very flexible, so it didn’t feel clingy or dry like a more traditional liquid lipstick might. It wore well for over seven hours, left a stain behind, and felt non-drying over time.
