After 22 hours of research evaluating 395 products, we picked SEPHORA COLLECTION Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick as our top choice.

We at Faveable love Sephora. Who are we kidding, every beauty girl does. Wall-to-wall makeup, perfume, and hair products - what's not to like?

Sephora started as a French chain of cosmetics stores, originally founded in 1969. Now, the 2,300 stores carry over 300 different brands. That's pretty impressive. 

But, did you know?

Sephora actually carries their own makeup brand. Most girls who walk into Sephora spend their money on expensive products from high-end brands, but many don't look at the retailer's own beauty brand, Sephora Collection.

The truth is, the Sephora makeup, hair, and skin care items compare to the competition, and are oftentimes a lot more affordable. 

The good news is:

We've researched each and every Sephora Collection product to give you an honest list of the absolute best Sephora makeup. And, as a bonus, we've categorized each pick to help you find exactly what you're looking for. We promise, you're going to love the Sephora makeup (and your wallet will, too). 

Our editors independently research, test, and recommmend the best products; you can learn more about our review process here. We may receive commissions on purchases made from our chosen links.

Why People Love it

  • Corrects dark spots and under-eye circles
  • Extremely affordable
  • Blends well and doesn't stick

Pick from Sephora's four different color correctors; Green (neutralizes redness), Pink (promotes brightness), Melon (evens skin tones with medium complexions, and Orange (evens skin tones with deep complexions. 

Unfortunately, at the moment, Sephora only carries two colors for evening skin tones. Hopefully, they'll get back more shades for different complexions soon because we love their product! 

Expert Ratings

Color

9.3 / 10

So, you can pick from four different colors depending on what you want these color correctors to fix. The available colors are Green, Pink, Melon, and Orange. Choose which color is right for you depending on what you're looking to correct, whether it be redness, dark spots, brightness, or overall skin tone. The serum is very lightweight and doesn't feel sticky after application. 

Application

9.3 / 10

Apply the formula under eyes, around the nose and mouth area, and over blemishes or scars. The swab-like applicator allows you to blend the formula onto the skin naturally. All you need is a little to start. Simply dab it on and use the wand to blend and smooth over your skin. 

Value

9.4 / 10

Currently, this product is on sale for only $4.00 on Sephora. It used to be $14, so this price is quite the steal. We recommend buying quickly, as we're not sure if Sephora is planning to phase out this line or when they'll get more in stock.

Why People Love it

  • Long-lasting colors
  • Adds a healthy glow
  • Lightweight texture that blends well

Choose from 16 different colors with Sephora's collection of Colorful Face Powders. These long-lasting colors leave a matte finish that blends well with your make-up, leaving a natural, glowing finish.  

A few users said that this color palette was difficult to blend for beginners. 

Expert Ratings

Color

9.0 / 10

Choose from an array of colors to find which shades work best for you. The Sephora Collection has 16 beautiful and cleverly named shades to pick from. Overall, these colors add a healthy glow to your face and make-up. They add the perfect punch to whatever look you're going for, whether it be out on a hot date, or a chill night with friends. 

Application

9.2 / 10

If you're buying these colors to contour, draw a diagonal line from the bottom of the cheek towards the top, and then blend evenly. If you're looking to add a little color to your cheeks, pat onto the center of your cheekbones and blend. 

Value

9.2 / 10

The colors are $14 each, which we'd say is a fair deal. Take some time to figure out what color you feel will work best for you before purchasing. This palette should last for a while, as only a little is needed for the full effect.

  • Stays on all-day
  • Very natural looking tones

With this Contour Blush Palette, you can pick from six different shades. The pressed powder works to add depth to your face and adds either a matte finish or a little shimmery shine! 

A few users mentioned colors don't appear as bright in real life as they do in the photos. 

Expert Ratings

Color

9.3 / 10

This palette has six shimmery and matte shades. You get a Rosy Nude (matte finish), Pink Peach (shimmer), Bronze (shimmer), Rust (shimmer), Rose (matte finish), and Orange Peach color (shimmer)! The pressed powder effortlessly blends, adding depth to the face and giving cheeks a soft definition. Like all Sephora made products, this palette is not tested on animals - and it's formulated without parabens! Score! 

Application

9.2 / 10

We recommend applying this product with a brush, as we noticed it blended much better than with fingertips. We found that this palette is easy to mix with other shades and has a long-lasting hold. Bonus - it can also double as an eyeshadow! Two in one! 

Value

9.2 / 10

Currently, this Contour Blush Palette is on sale for almost half off on Sephora's website. Originally $28, this palette is now only $19! It's definitely worth trying out.

Why People Love it

  • Gel tip effortlessly glides on
  • Multitude of matte and shimmer finishes to choose from
  • Doesn't dull

This gel-cream liner applies smoothly and works to visibly enhance the lips. It's softer and creamier than your typical lip liner, making it so satisfying to apply. With so many colors to choose from, you may want to try several - we don't think you'll regret it! 

This is a retractable lip liner, so it may not last as long as a pencil liner, but we still think it's well worth the purchase. 

Expert Ratings

Color

9.2 / 10

There are so many colors to choose from it's almost overwhelming. Pick whatever color you see fit based on what colors you regularly use for your lips. There are even three shimmery colors for special occasions (all the other liners have a matte finish). 

Application

9.3 / 10

A lot of times, liners can feel so drying or tend to fade with wear. This Rouge Gel Lip Liner applies so smoothly thanks to the gel-tip texture. Apply to the outer line of lips (and watch as it glides on effortlessly) and then gradually fill in all over lips to create the perfect base. 

Be gentle when applying, you don't need to use as much force as you would an ordinary liner pencil. Also- pro-tip, be sure the lid is closed tightly after every use to avoid early drying. 

Value

9.4 / 10

$13 for a liner you'll love. It's worth it.

Why People Love it

  • So lightweight it feels like you're not wearing anything
  • Long lasting up to 10 hours
  • Saves time when getting ready

An airbrush foundation with an ultrafine, weightless mist that lasts up to 10 hours. 

Although this foundation is 2.5 fl ounces, it doesn't seem to last as long as cream foundation. 

Expert Ratings

Color

9.5 / 10

The Sephora Collection Perfection Mist Airbrush foundation is lightweight, oil-free, and has buildable coverage. Micro-fine pigments of InstaBlend technology ensure the color is smooth and seamless, so you can build to your desired coverage level—from light to full. It comes in 13 matte finishes ranging from cream to cocoa. 

We love that this formula is made without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. And, it's not tested on animals which feels pretty good, too.

 

Application

9.5 / 10

The application is what sets this foundation apart from the rest. This product comes in a 2.5 fl ounce can that looks like a little can of hair spray. 

To apply, you shake the can for five seconds, cover your eyes, and press the nozzle. We love this foundation because you get to control the coverage. For lighter coverage, you can spray it directly onto a brush (or beauty blender). For fuller coverage, hold the can six inches from you face and spray. 

Value

9.5 / 10

At $28, the price of this product is somewhat cheaper than other foundations out there. Especially compared to the Dior Airflash Spray foundation which costs $62.

Unfortunately, this stuff doesn't seem to last as long as cream foundations. Because of how its applied, some of the product is wasted when sprayed.

  • Your brows will stay put until you wash it off
  • Natural looking and blends in easily
  • The retractable pencil always stays sharp

An affordable, retractable brow pencil with a wingtip comb. Comes in 10 natural-looking shades. 

This brow pencil has a wide tooth comb on the end for brushing your brows. If you're someone who prefers a spoolie, you may want something different. 

Expert Ratings

Color

9.5 / 10

If expensive beauty products aren't your thing, we've got the perfect brow pencil for you. And, no matter what shade your brows may be, Sephora has you covered. Sephora's Retractable Brow Pencil comes in 10 natural-looking shades including honey blonde and dark charcoal. 

 

Application

9.5 / 10

These retractable pencils will give you perfectly defined eyebrows. To dispense color, twist the pencil and the always-sharp tip comes up. On the other side of the pencil is an attached wing tip comb.

This product was made to give your brows natural definition. While using this product, we recommend short strokes to mimic the look of your natural eyebrow hair. Apply lightly or go for a bolder, more defined look. As a bonus, this product is made without mineral oil, preservatives, or animal-derived ingredients. And, it is not tested on animals.

Value

9.5 / 10

For the price, you can't find better - it's one of the cheapest brow products out there. However, this brow pencil is so popular it can be tough to find in Sephora stores so you're better off ordering directly online.

Why People Love it

  • Affordable everyday go-to foundation
  • Full coverage with a lightweight feel
  • Stays put for hours

A full coverage foundation with buildable coverage that instantly conceals blemishes with an invisible, flawless finish. Its oil-free, long-lasting formula conceals for up to 10 hours. 

If you apply too much, it can look thick. 

Expert Ratings

Color

9.5 / 10

Sephora Collection 10 hour Foundation provides a medium to full coverage right away, so you don't need to use more than one layer of product at a time. Unless of course you want a more full-coverage look. This foundation comes in 38 shades, from light porcelain to espresso. So, no matter what your skin tone may be, Sephora has you covered. 

One thing we love about this stuff is that it won't leave your skin dry. And, there are no parabens in this formula. As a bonus, this foundation isn't tested on animals and that feels good too, right? 

 

Application

9.5 / 10

The Sephora foundation comes in a 0.84 ounce traditional, pump bottle. It has a thick consistency but when blended in, it seamlessly blends into a lightweight liquid. The best way to apply the foundation is with a damp Beauty Blender sponge for a streak-free look. After, set the foundation properly with a loose setting powder to keep everything in place throughout the day. 

Value

9.5 / 10

This foundation is a steal at the $20 price.. Not to mention, because this is medium to full coverage you don’t have to use very much to get the job done. 

Overall Editor Score

9.5 / 10

This foundation from the Sephora Collection is so good. We know because we've tried it. It lets you cover imperfections, and even your skin tone, without actually looking covered up. Why we love this product so much? It's formula is ultra-lightweight yet gives you complete and full coverage.

  • Matte and shimmer finish
  • Easy to blend and mix
  • Over 80 eyeshadows to choose from

With over 80 colors to choose from, you truly cannot go wrong. This colorful eyeshadow by the Sephora Collection applies evenly and blends well with other colors. Either use your fingertip for matte shades or a brush for shimmery shades. 

Depending on the color, you may need to apply several layers. 

Expert Ratings

Color

9.4 / 10

There are over 80 shades to choose from. The colors vary in a matte finish, shimmery finish, metallic finish, and a glittery finish. Depending on the color, you might need to apply several layers to really bright out the full shade. The tones last all day, making it the perfect hassle-free eyeshadow. 

Application

9.2 / 10

Depending on the color you're using, a brush or your fingertip work just fine. Sephora recommends using a brush if you're using a shimmery or glittery shade and using your finger for the matte colors. Application is easy, apply just like you would any other eyeshadow. If you're looking to blend the colors, use a brush and gently stroke until the desired shade is achieved. 

Value

9.1 / 10

Each eyeshadow palette costs only $9, making it easy to buy several and mix and match. The shades should last for a while, and we think it's set at a fair value.

Why People Love it

  • Smooth and creamy texture that doesn't feel sticky
  • Highly pigmented color lasts longer than 8 hours
  • Keeps lips moist and won't dry them out

A makeup-user favorite that's creamy and long-lasting. This lip stain keeps lips covered with matte or satin color for hours—no need to reapply or touch up throughout the day. 

This lip stain is bright and highly pigmented which some may not prefer. 

Expert Ratings

Color

9.5 / 10

Sephora offers this product in 40 different shades. Now, that's impressive. The colors are nearly limitless.

The most popular lip stain color seems to be the matte bold classic red named, "Always Red". Other seriously gorgeous shades include Nude Blush and Blackberry Sorbet. You're going to want more than one shade. 

The colors of this lip stain are highly pigmented and bright. So, if you're looking for something buildable and more natural-looking, this might not be the lip stain for you.

 

Application

9.5 / 10

This lightweight lip stain comes in a traditional .16 ounce lip color tube with a soft, doe wand applicator. The doe wand allows you to precisely apply the lip stain in all the right places. 

One thing we love about this stuff is that it glides on smooth and creamy but dries into a lightweight stain. As a plus, it doesn't feel sticky.

And, this stuff will stay on more than 8 hours. So, you don't have to constantly reapply. If you have been looking for that perfect lip stain that keeps lips moist, you found it. 

As a bonus, this stuff smells like brown sugar. It's so good you might just find yourself licking your lips throughout the day. 

Value

9.5 / 10

We think $14 for the best Sephora Collection product is a pretty great deal. Not to mention, you only need a little bit of the product and your color is in place for the entire day.

This 0.16-ounce container will easily last you for months. Because this lip stain is such a great price, it's probably a good idea to get a few colors. 

Overall Editor Score

9.5 / 10

This creamy lip stain from the Sephora Collection is the best of the best. We know because we've tested it ourselves. It's great for moisturizing your lips (and for making a statement).

Why we love this product so much? It's formula is ultra-lightweight and stays on for hours.
