Lord & Berry Jamais! Sheer Lipstick in Taboo Review and Swatches

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

Lord & Berry Jamais! Sheer Lipstick in Taboo, which is described as a Berry Pink-Red, is an ultra-emollient pinkish-red, or reddish-pink lipstick, that feels fantastic on the lips. It has a very creamy consistency, a high shine finish and it is very pigmented. While it is described as sheer, it provides ample color saturation and offers sheer to medium coverage. It glides across the lips with effortlessly, deposits color evenly and it doesn't migrate when I wear it. It is cruelty-free and made in Italy. While it lists fragrance among its ingredients, I neither detect a smell nor a taste.

In the tube, you would think that this was a classic tomato-red lipstick, but once it is swatched the color undergoes a visual metamorphosis.

According to Lord & Berry,

Jamais! Sheer Lipstick is a lightweight lipstick that delivers extremely comfortable, sheer to medium buildable coverage and a mirror-like shine finish. This high-shine sheer lipstick with smooth and creamy provides brilliant and super-pigmented lip color while taking care of your lips. Jamais! is enriched with Sunflower Oil that provides long-lasting moisture and nourishment to your lips. The shade range is designed to complement all skin tones. Jamais! Sheer Lipstick is paraben free, silicone D4/D5 free.

Against the Double Delight Rose, Taboo appears to be a plummy-red shade, but see its transformation against the white Iceberg Rose below.
In the tube, the bullet looks more like a warm tomato red– especially when photographed against the white Iceberg Rose.

Features and Claims:

  • Creamy and emollient texture.
  • Sheer to medium coverage formula with a wet shiny finish.
  • Tocopheryl nicotinate ensures a plumping effect.
  • Sunflower oil helps to achieve the smoothest finish possible.
  • Lightweight triglyceride delivers true comfort and emolliency.
  • Paraben-free, silicone-free, D4 or D5-free.
Once swatched, the pink undertone comes through, and it clearly isn't a tomato red as the bullet would suggest.
