Sephora Favorites Give Me More Lip

Give Me More Lip.

No really, Give Me More Lip, the Sephora Favorites Set.

I need this.

It is the second slice of Heaven from Sephora today.

The first was the Sephora Favorites Superstars and I noticed how that one didn't contain any lip products.

Have no fear, this one definitely makes up for it.

It contains 15 lip products, three of which are full sized and the rest are deluxe sized.

The Sephora Favorites Give Me More Lip set is $59 and limited edition.

The Breakdown:

-Ciate Liquid Velvet in Risque (full size)

-Nars Lipstick in Scarlet Empress (full size)

-Smashbox Be Legendary in Magenta Matte (full size)

-Bite Matte Creme in Cognoc

-Kat Von D Studded Kiss in Homegirl

-Fresh Sugar Tulip Tunted Lip Treatment

-Too Faced Melted Liquid Lipstick in Berry

-Lancome Lip Lover in 355 Framboise Etoile

-Buxom Lip Cream in Berry Blast

-Urban decay Revolution Lip Gloss in Streak

-Clinque Chubby Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in Strawberry

-Buxom Lip Polish in Sophia

-Laura Mercier Creme Smooth in Milkyway

-Tarte Energy Gloss in Clear

-Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture La Rouge in No 1

With the Gimme More Lip Set you get a variety of lip glosses, lip creams, and lipsticks.

This is a great way to try tons of different lip products before buying a full sized and finding out that you don't like it for one reason or another.

You also get a variety of shades, including nude, pinks, berries, and reds.

Will you be picking up the Give Me More Lip Set?

This is also a limited edition set so once it is gone, it's gone.

Below are the links for Ebates (currently 8% cash back for Sephora) and the direct link to the product.

Sephora Favorites Superstars

Sephora released a couple slices of heaven today.

One of them is called the Sephora Favorites Superstars and it definitely contains some superstars.

Let's get the price out of the way, this baby retails for $75.

I wish it was a little more affordable, but what are you gonna do?

The set comes with 13 products, 7 of which are full sized.

These are some of the best items that Sephora has to offer.

Now on to the goods (what you'll be getting if you purchase this):

-Beautyblender original

-Benefit They're Real Mascara

-Clinique Chubby Stick Sculpting Highlight

-Lancome Drama Liqui-pencil Extreme Long Wear Eyeliner in Noir Intense

-Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Highlight

-MAKE UP FOR EVER Step 1 Skin Equalizer Hydrating Primer

-NARS Dual Intensity Eyeshadow in Himalia

-Smashbox Photo Finish Primer 

-Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Intense Black

-Tarte The Sculptor Contouring Face Slenderizer in Park Ave Princess

-Tarte The Slenderizer Bamboo Contouring Brush

-Touch in Sol Stretchex Lash Effect Mascara

-Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Lounge

The Sephora Favorites Superstars definitely contains almost everything you need to create a full look minus maybe a couple of eye brushes and a blush, oh and a lip product (don't worry there is another Sephora Favorites for that).

This is a limited edition set so once it is gone, it's gone.

Below are the links for Ebates (currently 8% cash back for Sephora) and the direct link to the product.

This set is amazing, but for me it is definitely on my wish list at $75.

Did you pick up the Sephora Favorites Superstars?

Stila A Whole Lot of Love at Sephora

The Sephora Exclusive from Stila's Holiday Collection is here. 

It's called A Whole Lot of Love and it is $50. 

Just like the other pieces in Stila's holiday collection this one is a whole lot of gorgeousness.

The Whole Lot Of Love Set looks like a love letter.

It contains a face and eyeshadow palette.

The face palette comes 4 blushes and the eyeshadow palette has 20 eyeshadows.

The shadows are in matte, shimmer, and satin finishes.

They range from light to dark shades in neutral to jewel to sultry to smokey shades.

Stila Holiday Collection at Ulta

How adorable is the Stila holiday collection at Ulta?

Each of the items has a love theme, which kind of makes you stop and question, what holiday are these for?

They are for the holiday season, but I can't help thinking that they would have been perfect for Valentine's Day.

Oh well, on to the items...

First up is the Trust In Love Gift Set - $40 (only at Ulta)

It comes in gorgeous gold vintage packaging that looks like a love letter. 

Be Still my Beating Heart.

Who wouldn't love receiving this beauty?

It comes with 12 eyeshadows that range from neutral to sultry.

It also has a Deluxe Huge Extreme Lash Mascara as well as a Deluxe Lip Glaze in Apricot.

Next up is another beauty.

Stila is really killing it with this ornate, vintage, romantic, elegant (ok you get the picture) packaging.

The Eternal Love Liquid Lipstick Set - $20.

It comes with three Deluxe Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Ricco, Beso, and Baci.

Well, yes please, liquid lips, don't mind if I do.

It contains 6 lip glazes in Pomegranate Sparkle, Ruby Grapefruit, Raspberry, Mandarin Lights, Papaya Pizzaz, and Peach.

Lastly, we have the Sending My Love Gift Set (online only) - $49

This set looks like a vintage card box.

It contains an eyeshadow palette with 5 shades, which are mainly nude but there is also a purple, a face palette with a bronzer, blush, and highlighter, Deluxe Lip Glaze in Guava, and a Full Sized Liner in Stingray.

Whether you are a romantic at heart or just love pretty things, there is something in this collection for you.

I can't get over how gorgeous this packaging is.

American Beauty Association Shirts

You know how you are just scrolling through your Facebook feed just minding your own business, and all of the sudden you will see suggested posts or ads?

Well that is how I came across these makeup shirts from American Beauty Association.

The American Beauty Association is a group of beauty enthusiasts that come together regardless of expertise in the makeup world. 

Anyone can join, but there is a membership fee of $19.95 a month.

For more on the American Beauty Association, visit http://beautyassociation.org/

As for the shirts, you don't need to be a member to purchase them.

All you do is pay for shipping, which is $6.95 per shirt.

I picked up two of them. 

I have only seen three different shirts and I can't remember what the other one says.

The black one says Life Is Too Short To Wear Bad Lipstick.

The white one says All I Need Is Coffee and Mascara.

I find that it can be hard to find makeup clothing items so I was very excited to come across these.

Below are the links for both shirts if you are interested in purchasing one or both for yourself or a friend.

Hello Butterflies.

As an Influentser member I received an invite to create a dream list of at least 5 of my dream products that total under $100.

Below is my description of my list.

They are my dream products because they work like a dream.

I added 11 drugstore products to my list and still believe that I am under the $100 mark.

I tried to find the high price for each item online to ensure I stay under $100.

Makeup Revolution - Unicorns Unite Lipstick Collection

Makeup Revolution has a Unicorns Unite Palette and they have now added a Unicorns Unite Lipstick Collection.

The collections contains 5 lipsticks.

Makuep Revolution's site doesn't have descriptions of each shade, so below is my guess based on the pictures.

I have included the lip swatches of each color directly from Makeup Revolution's website so you can see what the shades look like.

Horn of Magic - looks like a teal gray shimmer (very pretty, unique color)

Pink Myth - looks like a pretty pink coral shimmer

Throne - light lavender shimmer

Legend - looks like a purple gray

Magical - looks like a bright purple

The Unicorns Unite lipsticks are $1.52 each or you can purchase the whole collection of 5 lipsticks for $6.08 US.

What do you think of the Makeup Revolution Unicorns Unite Collection?

I think that Horn of Magic and Pink Myth are so pretty.

The link below is for Makeup Revolution's website where you can purchase the collection.

Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Remix Studded Kiss Lip Set and Swatches

I have been a huge fan of Kat Von D's Eyeshadow Palettes, but for some reason I don't own any of her lipsticks.

Wait that is a lie.

I have two that I won in a giveaway a while back.

I meant that I haven't bought any of Kat Von D's lipsticks and I don't know why.

When I saw the Mi Vida Loca Remix Studded Kiss Lip Set I thought it was time to get some of her lipsticks.

I'm so glad I did.

The Mi Vida Loca Remix Studded Kiss Lip Set comes with 8 lipsticks, 7 are mini lipsticks in the black studded packaging and the 8th one is a full sized lipstick in white packaging.

3 of the shades are new and one is limited edition.

The shades are as follows:

Gold Blooded (white packaging, full sized, and new) - described as a ballad of gold-laced blood red shimmer.

Halo (new) - described as a high octane orange.

NaYeon (new) - described as a heavy metal hit of gunmetal shimmer.

Coven - described as a lyrical matte lavender.

Sexer - described as an all-night anthem of iridescent hot pink.

Wolvesmouth - described as an untamed tribute to metallic berry.

Bachelorette - described as a rhythmic reddish fuchsia.

Noble - described as a melody of matte petal pink nude.

Left to right - Noble, Halo, Coven, Sexer, Bachelorette, Wolvesmouth, NaYeon, and Gold Blooded

Bacehlorette, Wolvesmouth, NaYeon, and Gold Blooded

Swatched left to right in natural lighting - Noble, Halo, Coven, Sexer, Bachelorette, Wolvesmouth, NaYeon, and Gold Blooded.

Swatches are in the same order as above, but in natural lighting,

Another swatch picture

The Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Remix Studded Kiss Lip Set is new, exclusive to Sephora, and limited edition for this holiday season.

It is $42.

The Studded Kiss Lipsticks smell yummy. They have a vanilla scent just like MAC lipsticks.

They are very pigmented.

This set is a great way to try out different shades to decide if you want to buy the full sizes.

My favorites are Noble, Halo, Gold Blooded, and Wolvesmouth.

Did you get your hands on the Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Remix Studded Kiss Lip Set yet?

Which shades are your favorite?

If you are thinking about purchasing it, remember to go through Ebates first. Right now Ebates is offering 4% cash back for online Sephora purchases (that's more money back in your pocket for more makeup in the future).

Sephora Collection - Holiday

Sephora hit us this week with the release of tons of their holiday collections.

By their holiday collections I mean the actual Sephora Collection.

Wonderful Dreams Palette - $10

Contains 8 shimmer and matte shadows.

I love the packaging on this one and it even has a Too Faced vibe to it.

Color Around the World - $28

Comes with 4 face/eye palettes that represent colors that remind you of Paris, New York, Rome, and Rio.

This is one of my favorite Sephora Holiday Collections and it also reminds me of Too Faced.

Color Wonderland Neutral and Vivid Eyeshadow Palette - $59

This is one of the more pricey Sephora Holiday Collection items. 

This one is broken up into two palettes, your neutrals and pops of color.

This one has a Smashbox Master Class vibe.

The next two are Ombre items.

Ombre Obsession Eyeshadow Palette - $34.

Contains 8 shades, 4 are matte and 4 are ombre.

I love how pretty these look.

Ombre Obsession Face Palette - $34

Just like the Ombre Eye Palette, this one has 8 shades, 4 matte and 4 ombre.

Up in Smoke Baked Eye and Face Palette - $35

This one is a really pretty, well, baked eye and face palette.

It has neutrals and smokey shades with a blush and highlighter.

Colorful Wishes Eyeshadow Palettes - $15

Comes with 5 mini palettes.

Each have crease and lid shades that make it easy to grab a palette on the go and create an eye look easily with it.

Sephora has a lot of great holiday items of their collection.

I am a huge fan of the Ombre Palettes, Color Around the World Palettes, and the Up in Smoke Baked Palette.
