I have been looking for a very specific shade of dark plum/wine lipstick in cream finish for a while. While browsing through Sephora, which had tons of lipsticks in gloss and cream finish in a variety of shades, I found something close to what I was looking for with Sephora Rouge Cream Lipstick – Crush.


The lipstick color is slightly more deep plum than what the camera has picked up.

Crush 23 is a very vibrant reddish plum color. Great color for fall and Indian wear. It’s not as deep or dark as I wanted in a lipstick, but I love how this color stands out  and also enhances the complexion.

Sephora Rouge Cream Lipstick is super pigmented and easily glides on the lips, thanks to it’s creamy formula. The lipstick is very lightweight and doesn’t dry out lips at all. Usually I like to wear it blotted with a tissue to reduce the creamy sheen that the formula has. The lipstick wears well for 4-5 hours and then you can some feathering. It transfers to coffee cups or glass, but that doesn’t affect the color much.


The black casing is simple and elegant with ‘SEPHORA’ written at the bottom.

My problem is that the lipstick transfers to other surfaces and migrates if not blotted or worn without a pencil. I would definitely try out more colors from this range as it’s a good quality and nicely pigmented lipstick.

Price – Rs. 910

Any suggestions for a  deep plum/wine color lipstick?… Love, Jas 🙂
