A new obsession | Sephora Rouge Infusion

I have become such a big fan of Sephora's own beauty range - the Sephora Collection -, a range which I think is highly underrated. My latest Sephora Collection love is a duo set I picked up in my most recent Sephora haul (see here), containing two lip products I just can't get enough of!

The Rouge Infusion Lip Duo Set caught my eye mainly for the price. Two lip products in a cute little set for $14, that's just £9.20 for us UK lovelies. Value sets like this are incredible and something I really wish the UK would jump on all year round, instead of just offering value sets at Christmas. The duo includes one full size Rouge Infusion Lip Stain, alongside a 'mini' version (although it's still pretty decent in size for a mini).

Before picking up this set, I hadn't tried the Rouge Infusion Lip Stain range before. I've dabbled in Sephora's cream lip stains, lipsticks and lip liners, but the Rouge Infusion range was completely new to me. In all honesty, I wasn't expecting much. My experience with products of this nature isn't amazing; other brands I've tried lip stains from have been too thin in consistency, a mess to apply. Thankfully I was pleasantly surprised with Sephora's offering, which have the perfect consistency; almost gel like in texture, they feel comfortable on the lip with no drying throughout the day and no unnecessary sticky residue. 

Each shade is intensely pigmented, much better colour pay-off than other brands I've tried for lip stains like this. 05 Red Essence is my favourite of the two, a warm red with berry undertones, whilst 10 Fuchsia Concentrate is a beautifully vivid fuchsia with blue undertones. Longevity wise we're talking all day lasting power from these beauties, only needing to reapply after several hours and eating and drinking.

Unfortunately the duo set is no longer available. Sephora value sets seem to be hugely popular and sell out quite quickly, never to be seen again. But value sets are something Sephora do amazingly well, and they're always releasing new tempting sets to consider. The full Rouge Infusion Lip Stain range is pretty impressive with 17 shades available (including the two shades in this set), costing $14/£9.20 individually. 

The Sephora Collection range doesn't just cover makeup, including everything from skincare and body care to hair care and tools. The prices are really budget-friendly, especially considering the high quality. I really cannot recommend checking out the Sephora Collection enough, I've been so happy with the products I've tried so far and I know they'll be a regular feature in my Sephora basket in future orders.
