Sephora has introduced a range of True Cream Lip Colors in tangerine inspired shades to go along with their big Pantone trend at the moment.
I picked these up because they were madly inexpensive at $12 and I was curious if they’d suit me.
Take a look!
For $12, you won’t find a nice more generously size lipstick to indulge it if you’re on a budget and looking to embrace the orange tangerine trend.
These are super pigments with a soft, smooth easy glide across lips. They are extra creamy and have a vibrant color pay off that can’t be beat. If I’m being honest the quality far out weights the small $12 price tag.
The casing is even nice with a weighty feel and a simple, understated black tubing. However, just a note, these aren’t travel friendly in my opinion due to a fault in the the cap not closing tightly enough. The cap has a magnetic closure that clicks when in place when you cover the lipstick but it is very loose so it will potentially come undone should you toss this in your makeup bag or purse.
The creamy texture of the lipstick has a lightweight, emollient feel that keeps lips feeling nicely hydrated through the wear. For a cream lipstick I felt they wore rather nicely without accentuating dryness or causing it.
Sadly, only one of the three shades worked for me so I only took photos of the other two shades rather than swatch them as I will be returning them.
The shade that worked best for me was Sweet Embrace which is a bright peachy coral. Sunset Rhythm was straight on orange and I’ll Lead was more of a subdued off shade of peach.
Faulty packaging aside, these are a quite a nice lipstick deal so if you’re looking for a few shades of peach, orange-y goodness to try out for Summer I’d suggest checking Sephora out for your fix. Great quality lipstick although I would recommend they do something about the packaging as most of us do carry around lipstick with us and these have the potential to create a mess in our bags.
