Sephora Give Me Some Lip: Get on it!

A few weeks back, I've been trying to find Sephora's Give Me Some Lip lip sampler set and I've visited a few locations and they seemed clueless at first but last week, I finally found them in stores! I visited two different Sephora locations because the one located at Pacific Center had run out of the set.

In a month, I'll be on a plane and off to Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong for my 3 week trip. I'm quite excited about it and this set is exactly what I've been looking for. The lip samplers are the perfect size for traveling plus, I rarely ever use up a tube of regular lip gloss so this is exactly what I wanted. 

Left to right: Fresh Sugar Rose Lip Treatment, Laura Mercier Lip Glace in Bare Pink, Buxom Full-On Lip Polish in Dolly, Nars Turkish Delight, Bite Beauty in Rhubarb, Tarte Lip Surgence Lip Luster in Glitzy 

I've swatched all 6 of the lip products on the back of my hand and you can see that all of the shades are definitely wearable all year round.

Fresh Sugar Rose: The Fresh line of lip treatments have always been my favorite lip balms to date.  The smell is refreshing with a hint of lemon.  The protection it provides is great as well, it always leaves my lips feeling soft and smooth. This product is comparable to Kiehl's #1 Lip Balm but with less grease to it if you know what I mean.  
Will I repurchase? Yes! 

Buxom Full-on Lip Polish in Dolly: When you first put this on, oh my you can feel the tingling on your lips as if it's plumping them up. I do agree that the Buxom line does give your lips a little bit of puckering in a good way :)  It doesn't over do it so don't worry girls. You won't look like you just walked out of a certain magazine! Not that it's not a bad thing! This is a true lip gloss and provides shine. The color is great and is definitely wearable on an everyday basis.  The product has a slight shimmer, glides on easily and is not sticky. 
Will I repurchase? Yes and maybe in another shade :) 

Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Rhubarb: If you are looking for a highly pigmented lip color then go for these lip pencils! They are the most pigmented lip pencils/crayons I've come across. It doesn't bleed or smudge throughout the day so it's great for long hour wears. Personally, the color is a bit too pigmented and I don't have the ..sexiest lip shape out there in the world so I would have to pass on this. Will I repurchase? Yikes, probably not this one for me. 

Nars Turkish Delight: My oh my, I think this lip gloss has already had it's fair share of hype. I believe this lip gloss is also a part of NAR'S Cult product now. The lip gloss glides on easily and is great for layering on top of a lipstick! On it's own, it might be a bit too light. Although this is a light shade, you can definitely still see the color on your lips when worn. 
Will I repurchase? Yes! 

Tarte Lip Surgence in Glitzy: Ok, this crayon is probably my favorite crayon next to my crayola one which was in the color sky blue. Anyone anyone? The shimmer is subtle, the color is great and the pigment is sheer which is what I enjoy. I'm really glad that this product came in a full size because I can see myself whizzing through this crayon in no time. I have yet to try the Clinique Chubby Sticks but these 6 lip samplers will keep my lips moist and colored for some time! 
Will I repurchase? Yes! Oh dear, my wallet is screaming right now. 

Laura Mercier Lip Glace in Bare Pink:  This lip gloss I would say is another great one for layering. If you are looking for a ton of shine on your lips then I would say the LM lip glace is shinier than the NARS Turkish Delight, however I do think the NARS lip gloss has much better color payoff than the LM. I do love the packaging though! The lid kind of reminds me of the Burberry cosmetics line.  
Will I repurchase? Maybe down the road. 

This lip set is definitely a great value! I purchased this in store for $30 CDN  and the full size Tarte Lip Surgence is already $29 dollar so I personally think this is a set that you should hop onto before it's gone. I saw an eye-liner set as well when I purchased the lip set but I didn't pick it up because I'm quite picky about my eye-liners :) 

What are your favorite lip products? Are you going to purchase the lip set? I think it's also available online in the States and in Canada as well.

    Also! Did you check out Target yesterday? was crazy here in Toronto. The only thing I managed to snag was a girly PJ set LOL. Not sure it was worth the early-morning rise haha.

  30. I was looking for this set too but I never found it! How are your travels? I'm in asia right now too! :)

    1. Hi Angela! it looks like your comment box isn't working so I'll reply here instead. Asia was amazing, I should post a few photos up on my blog :) Where did you go in Asia?

  31. Hey Grace, Even though we are acquainted on Instagram, I’m dropping in on your blog. I cannot believe how once I connected with some of my blog friends on Instagram, we stopped visiting each other’s blogs. Lol… So while I’m having the time at home today on a stay-home Sunday, I decided to find all my instablog friends, visit their blogs and see what they are up to. So here I am! It seems like you haven't been updating your blog too. A bunch of us blog friends were just talking about how it is a lot more quiet on the blogosphere with all the old blog friends disappearing.

    Anyway, just dropping to say hi and I know you are travelling now! Take care!


I love footprints, please leave a little one in the comment box below!
