Sephora Reckless, Success Story, My Rules Rouge Lacquers Reviews & Swatches


Reckless (31)

Sephora Reckless (31) Rouge Lacquer is a light-medium mauve with neutral-to-warm undertones and a lightly glossy, cream finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage that applied evenly to my lips and didn’t emphasize my lip lines or lip texture.

The texture felt lightweight, creamy with moderate slip, and more like a lipstick-lip balm hybrid with how it felt like it melted a bit as I held it to my lips. It stayed on nicely for four hours and felt moisturizing over time.

Success Story (33)

Sephora Success Story (33) Rouge Lacquer is a deep plum with subtle, cool undertones and a glossy, cream finish. The lipstick had a smooth, lightweight texture that was creamy without being too slippery, though it was a more emollient formula. I didn’t experience feathering or bleeding while I wore it, but those who find that a common issue with more formulas may find a liner to be necessary.

It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied evenly in a single layer. The color wore well for five hours and felt hydrating while worn.

My Rules (34)

Sephora My Rules (34) Rouge Lacquer is a muted, medium-dark brown with subtle, warm undertones and a glossy, cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied fairly evenly, but it was one of the underwhelming shades in the range as it didn’t live up to the pigmentation claims and the formula’s flaws came through more noticeable as a result.

The lipstick still had a smooth, creamy consistency that felt like it melted slightly as it applied over my lips, which gave it moderate slip and kept it from tugging on my lips. It lasted decently for four hours and felt moisturizing over time.
