Dear Sephora, I’ve Found My New Favorite Lip Liner

Oh MAC Soar, how I love you, but I’m sorry to say I’ve found a new favorite lip liner– it’s from Sephora!

Don’t get me wrong, MAC Soar is still my go to, and I’m getting threateningly close to finishing up my current one so I went ahead and picked up a backup because I know I’ll be done with it soon, and my lipstick game just isn’t complete without it.

But, I digress. My new favorite lip liner is the Sephora Rouge Gel Lip Liner in Rose Wine, which I believe is a new product offering from Sephora. Of course the shade I go for is a pinkish brown shade because that’s been my go to shade for a while now.

The Good |

  • Creamy
  • Pigmented
  • Opaque
  • Non-drying
  • Variety of shades
  • Decent price ($12)

The Bad |

  • Nothing!

The Rouge Gel lip liner has a gel-cream formula, which makes it really easy to apply to the lips. It’s creamy, but it’s not so creamy that you can’t get a precise application. I find some lip pencils to be really drying on the lips, but because this has a gel cream formula, it isn’t drying at all. It is a retractable lip pencil so you won’t need a sharpener, and the tip doesn’t break easily like some of the drugstore retractable lip pencils I own.

This range of lip pencils has 18 shades ranging from nudes to reds to deep plums so you’re bound to find a shade you love. I know I’m excited to pick up some more shades from this collection.

I honestly can’t find anything bad to say about this product. I love the shade, the application, the way it feels, the price, which might be high for some people considering it’s just a lip liner, but it’s cheaper than MAC and other lip pencils you’d find at Sephora.

The Verdict |

You need to try these lip liners, and especially this color! I’ve been a MAC lip pencil lover through and through for years, and they tend to be my go to, but I can see this range becoming my new lip pencil go to brand.

Sephora has really been stepping up their product offering, and I love everything I’ve tried from them. I’m excited to see what else they release because they have some amazing things!

  • Ooh girl I am so with you on Sephora upping their game lately. I definitely take the time to look at their makeup brushes and products now as they’re pretty kickass. I’ve only purchased their brushes and nail polishes but I’m definitely eyeing their lip creams. Definitely eyeing these pencils – creamy formula and long lasting? You sold me!

    • I don’t own any of their brushes and nail polishes, but really want to try their brushes! Do you have any favorites that I need?

      Haha, I’m glad! They’re really good. I think you’d love them :)

  • Oh my goodness, that is such a beautiful color. I’m not much of a lip liner girl but I do have a few that I like a lot. I should definitely look into these next time I’m in my Sephora. Great post!

  • Ohh the shade looks very similar to Soar. I saw that these are a newer release and you’re right they’re more affordable than the other lip liners that Sephora carries.

    • Oh my gosh, that’s so exciting!! Yes! The gel-creme formula is really amazing :)

  • I’ve been on the hunt for a lip liner that doesn’t cost more than a lipstick, so I’m so excited to find out you love these. I seriously just added it to my Sephora cart and was admiring all the colors they had. Thanks for such a great review love! xo
