The Sephora Favorites Give Me More Lip kit was one of the top things on my Christmas List. I haven't tried THAT many different lip brands that are sold at Sephora. I thought that this kit was a great way to figure out which products and finishes that I did and didn't like. I have been trying these products out for quite some time now and am ready to share this review. Some people may have different opinions as me which is completely fine. Some products might work for me but not for other people and vice versa. Keep reading to hear my thoughts on each!
The product is divided into four sections: Reds, Berries, Nudes, and Pinks
Swatches L-R: OCC Lip Tar in Black Dahlia, Tarte LipSurgence in Moody, Fresh Sugar Berry, Buxom Lipstick in Menace
OCC Lip Tar in Black Dahlia (Full Size $18.00)- I was super excited to try this out. It applied VERY dark at first which kinda freaked me out. It also applied a little patchy. I had a bit of a hard time getting an even coat with the little brush. Once it started to dry it looked SO PRETTY. I got some compliments when wearing it which was nice. It lasted for 5-6 hours including with drinking and eating breakfast. I really liked this product but don't like that you have to apply it with a brush. Would I purchase? Maybe
Tarte LipSurgence Lip Tint in Moody (Full Size $24.00)-This is a nice lip tint that leaves your lips feeling moisturized. I like the color but wish it was a little bit more pigmented. Would I purchase? Probably not but maybe in a holiday kit with other colors.
Fresh Sugar Berry Tinted Lip Treatment (Full Size $22.50)-This is a great lip balm! Its super moisturizing and I love that it has a nice color pay off. Would I purchase? Not for the price
Buxom Full Bodied Lipstick in Menace(Full Size $21.00)-I have never really been interested in Buxom lipsticks but this one really surprised me! It had nice color payoff and was creamy and moisturizing. Would I purchase? Probably not just because I know there are more pigmented lipsticks for less money.
Swatches L-R: Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Icon, Laura Mercier Creme Smooth Lip Color in Red Amour, Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Outlaw, Sephora Collection Rouge Infusion in Red Essence
Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Icon (Full Size $28.00)-This was a really nicely pigmented gloss. It isn't sticky and I liked it. Would I purchase? No because I'm not a huge fan of glosses in general.
Laura Mercier Creme Smooth Lip Colour in Red Amour (Full Size $27.00)-This is a nice sturdy deluxe sample. I like the packaging and that the lipstick itself is nice and thick. Some mini lipsticks are so thin that applying the slightest bit of pressure would break it. It has decent pigmentation but I didn't find it super creamy. Would I purchase? No, I have many lipsticks that I like better that are a fraction of the price.
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Outlaw (Full Size $20.00)- I have wanted to try Kat Von D's liquid lipsticks for quite some time. I heard great things about these. I really loved this lipstick! It stayed on all night and applied beautifully. It was super pigmented and creamy. The one issue that I had with it is that it was pretty drying on the lips. Would I purchase? Yes, but I would need to put on a thick layer of moisturizer first. Lolita, Vampira, and BauHau5 interest me.
Sephora Collection Rouge Infusion in Red Essence (Full Size $14.00)-This is more of a lip stain than a gloss or lipstick. Its a little drying but is a pretty color and dries quickly. The thing I didn't like about it was the taste/smell of it. It has a floral/soapy scent. Would I purchase? Maybe, in a different color but not sure because I really don't like the smell and taste of it.
Swatches L-R: Tarte Lipsurgence Power Pigment in Flush, Too Faced Melted Liquefied Long Wear Lipstick in Fuchsia, Benefit Posiebalm Hydrating Tinted Lip Balm, Bite Beauty Luminous Creme Lipstick in Palomino
Tarte Lipsurgence Power Pigment in Flush (Full Size $24.00)- This is a nice pink/berry color that has pretty good pigmentation. Its pretty moisturizing. This might be a full sized product. Would I purchase? Maybe if I could find it on sale.
Too Faced Melted Liquefied Long Wear Lipstick in Fuchsia (Full Size $21.00)- I'm already a huge fan of the Too Faced Melted lipsticks. I already own this color too. Its super creamy and pigmented and has great wear time. These are excellent lip products. Would I purchase? Yes, I already have.
Benefit Posiebalm Hydrating Tinted Lip Balm (Full Size $21.00)- This is a tinted lip balm. It is sheer with no color payoff. Its moisturizing but doesn't really interest me at all. Would I purchase? No, not for the price.
Bite Beauty Luminous Creme Lipstick in Palomino (Full Size $24.00)- Bite Beauty is one of my favorite high end lipstick brands. Their products are amazing. They have insane pigmentation and are really creamy and moisturizing. Would I purchase? Yes, I already own this color in a mini duo that is $12.00.
Swatches L-R: Stila Stay All Day Vinyl Lip Gloss in Nude, Laura Mercier Lip Glace in Blush, BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Speak Your Mind, Too Faced La Creme Color Drenched Lip Cream in Naked Dolly, Make Up For Ever Waterproof Lipliner Pencil in Neutral Beige
Stila Stay All Day Vinyl Lip Gloss in Nude (Full Size $24.00)-This is a really nice pinkish nude color. I really loved how it looked and how pigmented it was. The big problem I had was that it was SUPER STICKY. Would I purchase? No.
Laura Mercier Lip Glace in Blush (Full Size $25.00)- I really liked this lip gloss. I'm not a huge fan of glosses as I mentioned before but this one was really nice. It was on the sheer side but wasn't sticky at all. It is nice for days I didn't feel like wearing a whole face of makeup. Would I purchase? Only if it was on sale.
BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Speak Your Mind (Full Size $18.00)-This is a nice and creamy lipstick with good pigmentation but for some reason BareMinerals products just don't excite me. Would I purchase? No.
Too Faced La Creme Color Drenched Lip Cream in Naked Dolly (Full Size $22.00)-I had high hopes for this lip cream since I love all other Too Faced Products. I was disappointed in the pigmentation of this lip cream. Yes, its super creamy but just not enough color pay off for me. Maybe the other colors have better pigmentation? Would I purchase? No.
Here are some lip swatches of some of these products:
OCC Black Dahlia
Tarte LipSurgence in Moody
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Outlaw
Tarte Lipsurgence Power Pigment in Flush
Overall, I really enjoyed trying out all of the lip products in this kit. This is a holiday set so I do not believe it is available all year round. Even though I wouldn't repurchase a majority of the products, I was happy to try each brand and formula out to see what I actually WOULD purchase. My favorite lip products of the bunch were the Bite Beauty Creme Lipsick, OCC Lip Tar,Tarte LipSurgence Power Pigment, Too Faced Melted Lipstick, and the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick.
