Sephora Favourites: Give Me Some Lip

9:10 PM

A few weeks ago, after a particularly stressful day at work, I stopped at Sephora on the way home and picked up the Give Me Some Lip kit ($30 cdn) as a little pick-me-up. I'd seen this on the shelves for a while (it's been available since the summer) and finally took the plunge.

I'm usually more drawn to bolder lip colours, but this set intrigued me because of the lovely combination of brands and products inside. It doesn't hurt to give a nude lip a try, right? 

Keep reading to find out my thoughts!

Smashbox Pout: This blue-toned pale pink (it looks white in the tube) is a pretty nice gloss. It adds a sheer wash of shine and moisture with minimal colour (thank goodness, cause who wants white lips?). Nothing special, but nothing terrible.

Bite Lip Pencil in Meritage: I LOVE Bite lip products, so I was so happy to see this in the kit. This mauve/nude is comfy on the lips while adding a nice opaque "my lips but better" colour. My favourite of the bunch.

Marc Jacobs Lip Lacquer in Kissability: I realized after I completed this post that I completely forgot to do a close up shot of this gloss, sorry! I've never tried a Marc Jacobs product before, so I was excited to give this one a go. Sadly, I was quite dissapointed. It's a mediocre pink gloss that I don't think merits the insane price tag.

Nars Gloss in Orgasm: The glossy counterpart to the famous blush of the same name. This gloss surprised me, in a good way! Despite the shimmer/glitter chunks that I usually avoid in a lip colour, this one somehow makes it work! (It's hard to go wrong with NARS).

Buxom Gloss in White Russian: I love this one. It's the only "lip plumping" formula of the bunch, and it does it's job without being painful. I'm a big fan of the minty tingle and the non-sticky formula.

Urban Decay Lipstick: The tiniest sample of the bunch. Although I've only worn this one a couple of times, it seems like a nice formula for a lipstick. It's creamy, not completely matte but not overly glossy. Think MAC Creme Sheen. I may pick up a couple more of these!

Overall, I think this kit is a really good value for money. I don't own many "nude" lip colours, and now thanks to this set I am well stocked for the next little while. If you're a fan of the neutral lip, pick this up while you still can!
