I was really intrigued about SEPHORA’s in-house brand and was constantly and ” on and off” together. That is when I came across this product and as I had some points in my beauty bank, I picked this up for an exchange and glad I got to try this shade and here is my review for the same.

About Sephora Rouge Infusion Lip Stain:
What it is:
A zero-texture lip stain that leaves the lips soft, bathing them in intense colour.
What it does:
This must-have lip stain delivers intense colour with no sticky residue. It provides buildable coverage for a natural, sophisticated, or glamorous look. The weightless formula leaves lips stained, soft, hydrated, and refreshed upon application.
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
In a use test on 23 voluntary participants:
– 100% found the Rouge Infusion color to be intense
-Apply directly to the lips.
-Start in the middle of the lips, and then gently spread product to the edge of the lips.
-To avoid getting the product on the skin around the lips during application, outline the lips with the universal lip liner first.
-For more intense color, apply three layers of Rouge Infusion onto the lips, waiting a few seconds between each application. For a softer effect, apply it just once.
My experience with Sephora Rouge Infusion Lip Stain No 10 Red Essence :
Shade – No 10 RED ESSENCE is deep dark warm toned maroon red shade with no shimmers or glitters whatsoever. The shade is very flattering on my NC 40 skin tone, it is not bright and has that soft subtle look to it, and the colour is not on your face at all despite being a darker hue.
Texture and Staying power – The texture is soft liquid just like lip stain water based and feels light, it glides easily and sets pretty fast. It doesn’t settle into fine lines but tends to fade little unevenly. If I don’t munch a lot (which is rare), I get some 3 plus hours of wear and then it starts to fade although the CLAIM IS 10 HOURS . Once the color is gone, it does not dry out my lips at all. If you don’t eat or drink too much it may stay a little longer.
Packaging – The gloss is housed in long cylindrical tube and comes with a long doe foot applicator , the tube is classic black and have the enamelled circle on top to identify the colour in tube . The best thing I find about SEPHORA’s packaging is that they comes sealed packed. I don’t know why but I always keep looking for things which are sealed pack which ensures that I’m using the product for the first time and no one else did it.
Pigmentation – It is decently pigmented and is opaque in 2 – 3 layers, you need to pay a lot of attention as it looks pretty uneven in single swipe, so make sure to layer it back and forth, however it feels light even after layering.
What I like about Sephora Rouge Infusion Lip Stain No 10 Red Essence :
- I love the deep red hue.
- The texture is light and sits pretty nicely.
- The packaging is wonderful.
- The price is just right for the product.
What I don’t like about Sephora Rouge Infusion Lip Stain No 10 Red Essence :
- This can be little uneven if you eat a lot of oily food.
- The staying power for this particular shade is just average.
- They are not easily available as we have very few stores here in India.
Ratings – 3.5/5
Recommendations – Having said that am not very impressed with this shade am still going to give it a shot once again as there are some amazing shades in this range which have received great reviews. I would love to hear if you have tried any shade and felt the same or mine is little different.
