My Thoughts: Best Holidays lip sets for your money

Sunday, November 03, 2013

It's NOVEMBER! Can you believe another year is almost over? Well, now that we're rapidly approaching winter that means we're also rapidly approaching all the winter holidays. You know what that means? It's PRESENT TIME! lol

So many gifts to give. So many gifts to receive. For those participating in gift exchanges or Secret Santa exchanges or looking to buy your makeup addict something well I have a few picks for you!

Once again Sephora has put together their kit called Sephora Favorites. I've got to admit these are some of my favorites as well and most are reasonably priced at only $25. Of course the prices do go up to almost $80 but the beauty of these kits is that you can buy a few and break the kits down to create your own customize beauty box!

So here are a few of my favorite lip set from Sephora:

Give Me Some Lip, retail $25 (value $90)

I actually did buy this and am waiting for it to arrive. It contains:
  1. 0.10 oz Laura Mercier Lip Glacé in Bare Pink
  2. 0.07 oz Buxom® Full-On™ Lip Polish in Dolly 
  3. 0.14 oz NARS Lip Gloss in Turkish Delight
  4. 0.08 oz Fresh Sugar Rosé Tinted Lip Treatment
  5. 0.05 oz Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Rhubarb
  6. 0.10 oz Tarte LipSurgence™ Lip Luster in Glitzy [full size!]
My favorites out of this set - Sugar and Tarte, two products I tend to buy over and over (well, buy sets in which these items come in since I like to get more bang for my buck). Is it worth the $25? Absolutely! The Tarte LipSurgence alone is $22 since it's full size!

Give Me More Lip, retail $59 (value $209)
  1. 0.12 oz bareMinerals ® Marvelous Moxie™ Lipstick in Never Say Never [full size!]
  2. 0.05 oz Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Pomegranate
  3. 0.04 oz BUXOM® Full-Bodied™ Lip Stick in Menance
  4. 0.07 oz BUXOM® Full-Bodied™ Lip Cream in White Russian
  5. 0.03 oz Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Icon
  6. 0.03 oz Kat Von D in Everlasting Love Liquid Lipstick in Backstage Bambi
  7. 0.042 oz Kat Von D Foiled Love Lipstick in Adora
  8. 0.1 oz Laura Mercier Lip Glace in Bare Naked
  9. 0.05 oz Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Natural N45
  10. 0.33 oz Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in Strumpet [full size!]
  11. 0.1 oz Smashbox Be Lengendary Lipstick in Nylon Nude [full size!]
  12. 0.14 oz Smashbox Lip Gloss in Pout
  13. 0.03 oz Stila Color Balm Lipstick in Sonya
  14. 0.03 oz Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lip Color in Dolce
  15. 0.009 oz Tarte Glamazon™ Pure Performance 12-Hour Lipstick in Inspired
  16. 0.11 oz Too Faced La Crème Color Drenched Lip Cream in Marshmallow Bunny  [full size!]
Now the Give Me More Lip is an absolute steal. There are four full size items in this set and those four items alone retail for $77 which means you're already saving $18 or it's like getting the OCC lip tar plus all the other deluxe size lip goodies for free! Can you guess what's my wish list? Oh yeah, this set is definitely on my "Santa, I've been an awful good girl this year" list. ;)


Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar All-Star Mini x 12 Set, retail $58 (value $90)
  • 0.08 x 6 Matte Lip Tar in:
    • Clear
    • Divine
    • Clockwork
    • Psycho
    • Stalker
    • Strumpet
  • 0.08 oz x 6 Metallic Lip Tar in:
    • Pris
    • Lovecraft
    • Yaoi
    • Super NSFW
    • Electric Grandma
    • Authentic
  • Precision Lip Brush
Oh I love this mini set, I don't expect to buy it for myself as I have all the Lip Tars in this set as full size versions but it's a fantastic deal to introduce yourself to OCC Lip Tars. These also make great stocking stuffers HOWEVER I have to warn you these are NOT lip glosses, lip stains or lip sticks so use a small amount or mix with other colors or even other glosses to create your own look. Very pigmented so a little goes a long, long way.

Stila Color Me Glossy Lip Glaze Set, retail $28 (value $124)
0.45 oz x 9 Lip Glaze in
  1. Cranberry
  2. Persimmon
  3. Melon
  4. Dazzleberry
  5. Wildberry
  6. Strawberry Cream
  7. Passion Fruit
  8. Kaleidoscope
  9. Amaretto 
These are just slightly smaller than the Lip Glaze trios (0.5 oz) and a little less than 1/2 the size of a full size Lip Glaze (0.8 oz). I still think these are a great way to introduce yourself or a friend to Stila's Lip Glazes.

There you have it my top four favorite lip sets from Sephora. I've already bought the Give Me Some Lip set and I'm considering getting the Give Me More Lip set for my Secret Santa box and to make my own beauty box for my daughters and three sisters-in-law.
