Sephora What’s My Secret & Hear Me Roar Rouge Lacquers Reviews & Swatches

Sephora What’s My Secret (05) Rouge Lacquer is a medium-dark, grape purple with warm, pink undertones and a glossy, cream finish and barely-there micro-pearl. It did not appear shimmery to my eye in person, but there were very fine pearls in the close-up photos. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in one pass, which adhered evenly and smoothly across my lips. The lipstick was creamy, emollient, and a bit slippery but managed not to feather or slide around while I wore it. This shade lasted nicely for five hours and was moisturizing over time.

Sephora Hear Me Roar (08) Rouge Lacquer is a medium-dark berry with subtle, cool undertones and a glossy, cream finish and barely-there pearl. It had semi-opaque color coverage in a single layer, which went on smoothly without tugging. The color seemed to be fairly even, but I think the lack of opacity coupled with the hue itself seemed to emphasize the natural unevenness of my actual lip color. The consistency was lightweight, moderately emollient, and comfortable to wear. It stayed on well for five hours and was lightly hydrating over time.
