I’ve just started getting more into wearing lipsticks over the last 4-5 months and I’m really happy that I bought these. One of my biggest pet peeves about lipsticks is when they don’t stay on very long. Because these are long wearing – they stay on so much longer than other lipsticks I have and the pigment of each is great.

I recently ordered this set during Sephora’s VIB sale and I’m SO happy I made this purchase. First of all, I’m obsessed with the packaging. Like really, so cute! I didn’t want to throw the box away for the longest time!
The sizes are perfect to try the product/colors out to see if you like them. I wasn’t entirely sure how big they would be and whether or not they would be small and more like a sample size but I was happy to see that they are all decent sized with a good amount of product in each shade. [I’ve used 2 of these a bunch of times and still have a good amount of product left in each.]
The applicator is my favorite thing about this product. It helps with giving a precise application and distributes the product evenly. The sponge is small and prevents putting too much product on at a time which allows you to “build” and have more control. I’m personally more comfortable with nude and lighter pink/brown shades so I haven’t used the darker color [Berry] out yet. See swatches* below on the inside of my forearm – please excuse my extreme paleness 😉
Overall I really love these! If you aren’t sure what colors you would want, I think buying the set is great as it will give you an opportunity to try a few different shades. However, I’d love to go into the store and do swatches on my skin to figure out other colors I’d want to buy. Love these lipsticks and definitely recommend to anyone looking for long lasting wear with beautiful colors! This is also a great gift idea as it gives a good range of shades and comes in such beautiful packaging!
Have you tried these yet? If yes, what did you think?
