Inspired by the Color of the Year: Sephora Collection Be You Lip Stain in Peach Gelee Review and Swatches

In addition to the SEPHORA + PANTONE collaboration, Sephora's in-house collection has released a separate line of products inspired by the Color of the Year, Tangerine Tango.  These products aren't being as heavily marketed and they aren't packaged in as luxe as a fashion, but there were still some things that caught my eye.

When I read the Sephora Collection Be You Lip Stain in Peach Gelee ($12) described as a "self-adjusting lip stain with an extra-juicy, tangerine-inspired color," I knew I had to try it.  I love stains, and I've never encountered a self-adjusting one in the orange family before.

It turns out I still haven't found a self-adjusting tangerine stain!  As you can see, this one turned fuchsia pink on me.  The color still looks quite cute, but it just was not what I had expected from the name "Peach Gelee."

It looks like it should be peach in the tube. Sephora Collection Be You Lip Stain in Peach Gelee applies pretty sheer and the jelly texture feels nice.  The color blooms over the course of 1-2 minutes and lasts long after the jelly gloss comes off.  Since it is self-adjusting, I wonder how different the shade looks on other people.

Bottom Line:  Sephora Collection Be You Lip Stain in Peach Gelee is affordable, long-lasting, and has a nice texture. However, the name is misleading - this did not look peach on me!  It was like a fuchsia, lip stain version of Smashbox's O-Gloss.

Has anyone else tried this? What color did it turn on you?
