SEPHORA FAVORITES Give Me Some Lip | 2014


Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Lip retails for $25 USD ($30 CAD) which is a $90 USD ($108 CAD) value. The limited-edition set is said to be "a six-piece lip sampler set with coveted glosses, sticks, tints, and lacquers—including one full-size product—in pink and nude shades."

 
"Match up with your perfect lip shade with this multibranded lip set that lets you choose your favorite. Experiment with different formulas to achieve the perfect everyday lip."
Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil (0.05 oz.) – reg. $24 USD / $28 CAD (0.09 oz.)
  •  Meritage is described as a brick red.
Meritage is a medium, pink terricotta with a satin sheen finish. This lipstick is lightly creamy and has a fruity scent. This shade had decent color payoff but when applied it tends to look a little uneven and semi-sheer in some places. The formula was creamy, smooth and comfortable to wear. Meritage lasted +5 before fading. (4/5)

BUXOM Full-On Lip Cream (0.07 oz.) – reg. $19 USD / $23 CAD (0.14 oz.)
  •  White Russian is described as a nude pink.
White Russian is a pale nude pink with a cream finish. This gloss has a subtle minty, plumping effect which gives your lips a fuller appearance. The scent is a sweet, minty cake. The gloss applied evenly, smoothly, mostly opaque and the formula was creamy, but the creamy nature  of the gloss does lightly settle into the fine lines of my lips. White Russian lasted +4 hours before fading. (4/5)

Marc Jacobs Lust For Lacquer Lip Vinyl (0.02 oz.) – reg. $28 USD / $34 CAD (0.16 oz.)
  •  Kissability (302) is described as a shimmering lilac pink.
Kissability is a pink-rose with fine gold shimmer. This gloss has a high-shine finish that gives your lips a fuller appearance. The scent is a light fruity, cake. The fine shimmer in the gloss wasn't noticeable on the lips and the color varies depending on your natural lip pigmentation. The gloss applied semi-sheer, evenly and lasted +3.5 hours before fading. (3/5)

NARS Lip Gloss (0.12 oz.) – reg. $26 USD / $29 CAD (0.18 oz.)
  •  Orgasm is described as a peachy pink w/ shimmer.
 
Orgasm is a light, peach-pink with gold shimmer. This gloss has a shiny finish and the shimmer was noticeable. The scent is a fruity scent, much like the Too Faced Melted Lipsticks  I adore it! The gloss applied smoothly, evenly, was semi-sheer and had semi-opaque color payoff. Orgasm lasted +4 hours before fading. (5/5)

Smashbox Be Legendary Lip Gloss (0.20 oz.) – reg. $20 USD / $23 CAD (0.20 oz.)
  •  Pout is described as a pale blue pink. 
Pout is a pale, white pink with a cream finish. The scent is a soft cake and the gloss leaves a nice shine on your lips. The gloss contains a very fine shimmer which isn't noticeable on the lips. It applied smoothly, fairly sheer and the formula was creamy which lightly settled into the fine lines of my lips. Pout lasted +3 hours before fading. (3/5) 

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick (0.03 oz.) – reg. $22 USD / $26 CAD (0.09 oz.)
  •  Naked is described as a nude pink.
 
Naked is a medium pink with a creamy sheen finish. This lipstick is lightly creamy and leaves a subtle shine on your lips. It is mostly opaque, applies evenly, smoothly and lasted +4.5 hours before fading. The full-size Revolution Lipsticks are great, but I felt this deluxe size was a little off from their normal formula.(4/5)
Overall, this set was good but not overly impressive. My only real complaint was I found the size of some of the products to be shocking; e.g. the Marc Jacobs Lust For Lacquer Lip Vinyl in Kissability, you're getting less than quarter of a full-sized tube. (0.02 oz. vs 0.16 oz.) That's ridiculous! Same goes for the Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Naked, you're getting only a third of the product. Of course, this is a deluxe value set, but still...

This set may not be for everyone as most of the products lean more to the pink side and four of the six products are lip glosses, some of which give lips a larger appearance. However, deluxe sizes and value sets are a great way to discover new products, so those interested in new glosses or lipsticks will definitely find this appealing - plus, saving yourself some cash!
