SEPHORA FAVORITES Give Me Some Nude Lip


Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Nude Lip icon (0.29 oz) retails for $28 USD ($33 CAD) and contains four deluxe-sized and one full-sized lip product, in cream to matte finishes. It is said to be "a multi-brand lip set with five lip color must-haves for the perfect nude lip." Breaking the item prices down, this set is roughly a $86 USD ($103 CAD) value.

It features our favorite NARS Dolce Vita Lipstick and NUDESTIX's Lip + Cheek Crayon in full sizes--plus deluxe sizes of Marc Jacobs' Beauty Mini (P)Outliner Longwear Lip Pencil, Laura Mercier's Milky Way Crème Smooth Lipstick, and Tarte's Tarteist Lip Paint. Explore these formulas to discover your most flattering nude lip shade."

Laura Mercier Creme Smooth Lipstick (0.07 oz.) — reg. $27 USD / $32 CAD (0.14 oz.)
  • Milky Way is described as a brown. [P]
Milky Way is a medium, muted brown beige with warm undertones and a satin finish. The packaging is a square, plastic tube with no noticeable scent or taste. This shade applied smoothly, mostly even and semi-opaque. I found that my natural lip pigmentation did show through in some areas due to the thinner consistency. Milky Way lasted +4 hours before fading. (4/5)
* MAC Kinda Sexy was more pink. MAC Velvet Teddy was darker, more pink. Too Faced Melted Chocolate Honey was lighter, more peach.


Marc Jacobs (P)outliner Longwear Lip Pencil (0.01 oz.) — reg. $24 USD / $30 CAD (0.01 oz.)
  • Prim(rose) is described as a cocoa spice. [P]
Prim(rose) is a medium plum rose with warm undertones and a matte finish. The packaging was a retractable style pencil with no apparent scent or taste. The texture was soft, smooth and lightly creamy which made it easy to apply without tugging, dragging or creating jagged edges. It had nice color payoff, felt drying when worn alone but did help with the performance of other products when layered. Prim(rose) wore well for +4.5 hours before fading. (4/5)
* Bite Beauty Pepper was similar, glossy. Kat Von D Lolita was darker, muted. Marc Jacobs Infamous was brighter, more pink. Sephora Collection Marvelous Mauve was darker, muted.


NARS Lipstick (0.12 oz.) — reg. $27 USD / $34 CAD (0.12 oz.)
  • Dolce Vita is described as a sheer dusty rose. [P]
Dolce Vita is a light, rose beige with warm undertones and a glossy finish. The packaging is a square, matte black tube with a silicone texture. The product itself has no scent or taste. This shade applied smoothly, mostly even and sheer. I felt it took several good passes of product to get a hint of color on the lips and even still, my natural lip pigmentation did show—keep in mind, the transparency of this shade will cause it to look different on everyone. Dolce Vita lasted +3.5 hours and felt slightly hydrating. (4/5)


NUDESTIX Lip + Cheek Crayon (0.088 oz.) — reg. $24 USD / $28 CAD (0.05 oz.)
  • Whisper is described as a nude. [P]
Whisper is a light, muted nude beige with warm undertones and a creamy, luminous finish. The packaging is a wooden crayon style pencil that does require sharpening—the stand alone crayons come with a sharpener, however, the set doesn't which was a downfall. The product itself has no noticeable scent or taste. This shade applied smoothly, evenly and had nice color payoff. Due to the lighter nature, I found the color did fall into lip lines on a closer inspection, but never looked uneven. It had a light, creamy consistency (similar to Bite Beauty Luminous Creme Lipsticks) that made it comfortable throughout wear. Whisper lasted +5 hours before fading. (5/5)
* ColourPop Choker (LE) was similar, less pink. Kat Von D Noble was lighter, more pink. Stila Caramello was muted, more grey toned.


Tarte Tarteist Lip Paint (0.10 oz.) — reg. $20 USD / $24 CAD (0.20 oz.)
  • Namaste is described as a nude. [P]
Namaste is a light, peach beige with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. The packaging was a plastic tube with a long, slightly angled velvet applicator. The product itself has a strong minty scent, but no noticeable taste. The texture was much thicker and mousse like compared to other formulas. It was much drier and powdery on the lips, as well as being clumpy and slippery to apply, making it difficult to create clean edges. It had bold pigmentation but once dry, the color cracked and accentuated fine lines, dry areas and imperfections. Namaste lasted +3.5 hours and felt drying. (3/5)
* Clinique Beige Pop was darker, more pink, glossy. Kat Von D Noble was more pink.


Overall, while the colors may not compliment every skin tone, the set did feature a nice variety of products and finishes. The deluxe sizes make it very easy to test out new formulas without committing to a full sized tube—personally, I found the traditional lipsticks to be rather sheer and the matte "liquid" lipstick to be overly drying, but I was delighted to discover the Nudestix Crayon as it's not typically something I would have tried outside of the set, but it quickly became a favorite. So, if you've been wanting to try out any of these shades or formulas, than it's definitely worth checking this set out first!
