I love when Sephora has special kits you can buy that have different sample size products and brands. It’s a great way to test out and determine if you like a product/brand before you buy the full size of it!
I recently bought Sephora’s “Give Me Some Nude Lip” kit and I’m SO in love with the products that were included. This kit is perfect if you’re on a mission to get the perfect nude lip as there are a variety of products and shades included. Both the NARS lipstick and the NUDESTIX are full size products and the rest of the items are sample sized (but there is plenty of product in each). For only $28, it was definitely a steal! 🙂
NARS Lipstick in Dolce Vita
This lipstick goes on so smoothly and feels super hydrating on my lips. It almost reminds me of a lip gloss consistency as it feels very light on your lips when applied. I love how creamy the lipstick is and I would describe the color as a combination of rosy pink and nude. Love the shade – beautiful and perfect for spring which will be here before we know it!
NUDESTIX Lip + Cheek Crayon in Whisper
This crayon is very creamy, although not as moisturizing as the NARS lipstick. The color is more of a pale nude with no “pink” tones. If you are looking for a matte nude lip color, this would be a good product to consider. The size and shape of the crayon makes applying product easy. It can also be used for your cheeks. I haven’t personally used it on my cheeks yet but I applied it to my hand and tried blending the color and it seemed to blend easily. Definitely neat when you can use products for more than one purpose! I’d love to try a lighter/pinker shade as a lip and cheek color.
Marc Jacobs Beauty Longwear Lip Pencil in Prim(Rose)
This lip pencil is definitely long-lasting! I was surprised at how long the product stayed on for. The packaging is beautiful, the color is a bit darker (and slightly pinker) than I personally would like to use for a lip liner but I loved how smooth and easily the product applies. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a good nude lip liner that is long-lasting.
Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lipstick in Milky Way
Although this lipstick was very creamy and smooth, it was probably my least favorite out of all the products. The color is a bit too brown for my personal preference and I would most likely wear this lipstick for a night out. The color is pretty but it looked a bit too dark for my skin tone and I couldn’t see myself wearing this during the day. I do love the formula and would love to try this in a different shade.
Tarte Tarteist Lip Paint in Namaste Nude
This is my favorite product from this kit! I have a new obsession with lip paints and this one is the perfect nude shade. It stays on for such a long time (which is perfect since who enjoys having to reapply lip color constantly?!) and the formula is great – super smooth and hydrating, non drying, matte finish. It is super easy to apply the paint and the sample size has a decent amount in it. Out of all the products, I definitely plan to go and buy the full size of this one.
