So recently I visited a Sephora store to see what new makeup goodness had been newly released. Like I need any more makeup, haha! I wasn't looking for anything in particular but this lip kit caught my eye as I was walking toward to the checkout counter. I believe this lip sampler kit is fairly new. It's called Sephora Favorites, Give Me Some Lip. It's a great sampler kit containing 6 lip products. One product is actually full size and it's the Tarte Lip Surgence lip stain, which I love because it has a slight minty feel but the color pay off and lasting power is great as well. I have tried a few products from some of the makeup brands in this kit but I decided that it's a better bargain to have this kit than to buy full sized lip products from random brands that I may or may not have tried something from. I have tried all of the lip products from this kit and I really enjoy them all. Just an FYI, the Fresh Sugar lip balm is Amazing, just perfection!! All Sephora stores should carry this kit for $25 (awesome price) if your local store doesn't have it then check online. I will have the link towards the end of this post.
I would also like to share with you my thoughts on each of these products! Descriptions are in order according to my swatches photo below. The Tarte LipSurgence lip stain in "Glitzy" is a very pretty rosy color with a golden sheen. It has the perfect amount of glossy-ness and it feels really comfortable on my lips. This color will be awesome for any season! Next is Nars "Turkish Delight", which is probably the most popular lipgloss Nars has. It's a very creamy light baby pink. It's a great alternative to the classic "nude" lip we all love. It's a little bit sheer but you can definitely build the color up. It's not too sticky either. The only thing I don't like is the smell of the gloss itself but I can over look that aspect since I really enjoy wearing the color. Next is, Bite Beauty high pigment pencil in "Rhubarb". The color is a very nice berry tone. It feels very creamy and soft. The pigmentation is awesome! I have noticed that these jumbo lip pencils are really popular. It's so easy to throw this product into your makeup bag or even your purse. I really like the twist up mechanism from this product which eliminates the need for a sharpener. Bare Minerals Buxom lipgloss in "Dolly" is a nice berry color. It's a little bit deeper in tone than the Bite Beauty pencil. It has a gold shimmer that gives it a nice finish. This also has a minty tingly feel which actually feels good on my lips. The pigmentation is good but if you have a natural rosy tone to your lips, then this gloss may not show up as opaque. Laura Mercier Lip Glace in "Bare Pink" is a creamy peachy pink. It's a great summery color or can even be an everyday color for low maintenance looks. I enjoy this lipgloss and the texture....not too sticky. And finally, Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in "Rose" which is amazing. I really enjoy the slight rosy tint that I get from it. It's a lip product that virtually goes with everything or under your favorite lipstick. It's a natural looking glossy rose color. It feels extremely nourishing and luxurious. I love it.
I am really excited about this kit as you can probably already tell. You will definitely see more of these babies in upcoming tutorials. I hope you enjoy the swatches below.
