How were your holi celebrations? How many of you are still painted in green or red?
You know, a few months back I had a huge crush on corals and oranges. It was then that I picked up 4-5 lip colors in similar shades. This lipstick from Sephora is one of those purchases.

My experience with Sephora Rouge Jealous R 07 Lip Color:
The packaging of these lipsticks is very classy- an all black lipstick with the color shown at the base.
I don’t know if I have told you before or not; I really like the very feel of Sephora store. It feels as if some child is introduced to an international candy store and he is amused seeing so many attractive options at once. So coming back to the lipstick; it was hard to choose one amongst the given choices but I settled on this because of the shade. Frankly, I assumed it to be a decent orange but it has a neonish touch to it which I noticed only after bringing it home. I find Sephora’s lighting a bit deceitful.
Well, there is nothing wrong with being neon orange, but that reduces its probability of being worn by me- you cannot wear neon shades so often. The shade would suit fair to medium skin tones. Dusky beauties- stay away.
The texture is smooth and easy to swipe on the lips. It is neither buttery smooth nor dry. If you layer it up, it tends to become a bit patchy. It does not look good then; more so because of the shade. Also since I have dry lips, I need to exfoliate them before using this lipstick. Though I find the shape of the bullet to be very thoughtful and convenient to line and fill the lips but still it is best applied with a lip brush or you may just apply in a single swipe. You may also top it with a nude or light shade lip gloss. I use it this way most of the times and it looks yumylicious.
Staying power is fairly good; say 4-5 hours with mini meals. It does not survive full meals. There is no offending smell associated with this one.
Overall, it is a decent lip color, nice shade for summers and looks best when applied alone with lip brush or when topped with a lip gloss.
What I like about Sephora Rouge Jealous R 07 Lip Color:
- Classy packaging
- Pretty orange shade that could be very flattering depending on the skin tone.
- Shape of the bullet is thoughtful and better than the usual one.
- Smooth to apply.
- Decent staying power.
- No offending smell.
What I do not like about Sephora Rouge Jealous R 07 Lip Color:
- Gets patchy on dry lips if layered on
- Pricey; add some bucks and buy a Mac lippie instead.
- Shade is not universally flattering.
Until next time, take care.
