Sephora "Escape To Rio" rouge cream lipstick in Flamingo

 Sephora Spring/Summer 2014 "Escape to Rio"collection. This Collection consists of 4 very bright cream lipstick shades a powder bronzer ( which is sold out) and two gift sets, one containing some very bright nail polishes and another containing 2 liners, 2 polishes a bronzer and a self tanner. The only thing I purchased from this collection is one of the lipsticks because they are so bright I was not sure if I would wear it enough to purchase the other 3 BUT I did swatch all of the  lipstick colors. :)  The two gift sets are pretty and I am thinking about purchasing the one with the self tanner to see how well it works.  Anyway...On to the swatches...:)

         Escape to Rio collection creme lipstick in Flamingo:


                                       All 4 Shades of the collection together:

Hot Bikini~ Bright fuchsia  cream shade
Flamingo~ Bright pinky/coral cream shade
Samba~ Bright orange cream shade
Cougar ~ Bright pink cream shade

                                                      Me wearing Flamingo:


Price: $12.50 USD

The formula of this lipstick is creamy yet thick. The best way I have found to apply this lipstick is using a dabbing motion rather than a normal sweeping motion as the sweeping motion does not place the product onto the lips well and causes it to concentrate in certain sections of your lips while other sections look very sheer. 

How long does it stay:
Wearing this lipstick alone lasted about 2-3 hours before I needed to reapply.

My Thoughts:
This lipstick is very creamy and highly pigmented! The color is a mix between a bright pink and a bright coral which is perfect for the summer months. The two photos above show how the color may look either bright pink or bright coral depending on the lighting you are in. It also has a slight tropical vanilla smell that I find very nice. The application is a little tricky at first and if you use a lip liner underneath it goes on a lot better. The formula did not dry out my lips and as the lipstick wore off it left a slight stain behind. All in all I am loving this lipstick and I know I will get some use out of it this summer!
