Sephora Be You Lip Stain is a new gel lip stain inspired with a tangerine-inspired color. Correct me if I’m wrong, but this is a new product. Sephora has done lip gels and stains in the past but not one that was tangerine in color nor one that was self adjusting.
I was fairly curious about a self adjusting shade of tangerine so I purchased it.
Take a look!
This is fabulous. The formula is spot on with a cooling gel-like texture. The packaging is simple, basic, and to the point with a sponge applicator. The slightly glossy finish is lovely and the wear time of the gloss might be a bit brief but the stain sticks around for hours after application.
The jelly-like finish and texture of the product is very refreshingly and lightweight for the warmer weather. Sephora created it with a self adjusting formula that’s supposed to change to your perfect shade but there isn’t any clarification if they mean a perfect shade in general or a perfect shade of tangerine.
At first I was a little upset because it changes to a really bright shade of pink on my lips with a little bit of orange to it (you have to stare really hard to see that orange though). I expected it to turn into my perfect shade of orange….but it isn’t marketed as such I realized.
Sephora merely states that it was inspired by tangerine in color but isn’t technically supposed to change to that color merely that it will be a “a light wash of color that perfectly matches your skin tone”. Guess my skin tone screams bright fuchsia pink!
It’s quite nice for $12 bucks and achieves what many higher end brands market at a higher price but yeah, I was kinda disappointed that it wasn’t a perfect shade of me orange.
