Sephora Slay, CEO, Girl to Know Rouge Lacquers Reviews & Swatches

Sephora Slay (18) Rouge Lacquer ($13.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a medium pink with warm undertones and a cream finish. The color coverage was semi-opaque in one layer, but the formula didn’t lend itself to being buildable as it felt too slick when I did so. The texture was creamy, lightweight, and emollient, and it seemed to show in how this one looked on my lips–sank into some of my lip lines, caught on lip texture, and didn’t go on as evenly as it could have. The lipstick wore well for three and a half hours and was lightly moisturizing while worn.

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 CEO (13) Rouge Lacquer ($13.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a brighter, medium pink-coral with soft, warm undertones and a glossy, cream finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage that adhered fairly evenly, but it seemed to emphasize my lip imperfections and settled into a few of my lip lines–though way less than I’d expect based on how creamy and emollient the texture of it was. It stayed on well for four and a half hours and was lightly hydrating over time.

Sephora Girl to Know (29) Rouge Lacquer ($13.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a bright, raspberry pink with subtle, warm undertones and a glossy, cream finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff in a single layer, which went on evenly and didn’t sink into my lip lines. The texture was lightweight, creamy, and emollient with noticeable slip, though I didn’t find it feathered on me over time. This shade lasted nicely for four and a half hours, left a slight stain behind, and was lightly moisturizing while worn.
