Updates : SEPHORA FAVORITES Give Me Some Lip & Beauty Closet!

Sasephorafavoritesupdates2

By this blog’s title, you are probably wondering how come I’m talking about these 2 old Sephora Favorites sets Give Me Some Lip & Beauty Closet (I’ve reviewed them both when they first came out!). Well, if you remember, last week we saw sneak peeks of some Holidays Goodies coming our way this year at Sephora. Frankly, I lost some sleep this week, thinking of which ones to get. (Please tell me, am I the only one excited?!?) Personally, Sephora Favourites have always been the ones I’m most excited about (all year long), and this year will be a very good one (based on all the pictures I have seen!!!). 

Back to this post now… Yesterday I was browsing Sephora’s Website and I couldn’t believe that those were still available (if you asked me they should have been sold out a long time ago!). Anyway for the longest time now, I’ve wanted to do some updates on products still available (D’oh! what would be the point if not)😏. I’ve revisited these products just to see if, I’ve changed my mind in any way … So here is my first UPDATED post. Let’s get one thing straight, I know we all want the new & upcoming stuff but there is still some good, classic products that need some attention before they are gone for good 🙂


Disclaimer: Just to get it out there I don’t work for Sephora, they don’t know who I am, no affiliated links and 100% paid by yours truly!

update

To me, this was THE lip set of the 2014 Holidays! To tell the truth it, was way better than the big Give Me More Lip!!!  25$ – 30$CND of pure joy. What a great FALL set and what comes after summer girls? Yessss! fall. Why is it still available?!? Maybe because of the Smashbox Be Legendary Lip Gloss in Pout; it’s white (sheer white), not soft pink like the picture. However, this product has the ability to change any lipstick you already own: it blends and diminishes any shade to make a brand new one. I freaking love it … The bad rep was probably cause by the picture, that I agree, was misleading. Bite Meritage mix, the Smashbox Lipgloss, is out of this world !!! At the risk of sounding like a mad saleswoman, if you are looking for the perfect fall lip set with unbelievable shades (No duds there!) at a fair price. Grab it !!!

Note: Do not think that because 5 out of the six products are deluxe samples that you won’t have your money’s worth. Even Urban Decay’s Revolution lipstick in Naked, who is smaller than the rest (I know!), gives you at least 15+ applications. For me, it’s a No-Brainer: for the price of ONE lip product you get SIX !!!  Final UPDATE: I love this set more than when I first got it. AMAZING!!! Worth every penny if you ask me.

For more information you can read my original review HERE. (This was one of my first post, not the best but I’m assuming the fact that we all started somewhere !!!)

This set was available early 2015, after the Holidays !!! Let’s get the elephant out of the room: this one is PRICEY with a big P (99$ to 118$CND – Oooch!), but again no duds in this entire set. I’m telling you there is not one bad product in there, Not One! Don’t raise an eyebrow; considering what you get and how much use you are getting , it’s a bargain (for us beauty lover that is!). Rather than being deluxe sizes, I would say that each item is at least medium size and 4 of them are full sizes. Algenist makes the best eye cream ever, Elizabeth & James Nirvana Black mixed with my Vanilla perfume is so sexy, Park Ave princess bronzer is a must for pale girls, Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer is a cult favorite for a good reason, Ardency Inn Modster liner is so darn good, The mini Beauty Blender seems gimmicky but gets the job done, the Sephora eyeshadow in Pop Idol is the most shiny purplish, most beautiful color I ever tried … I could go on and on … What a great set !!!

Funny Fact : (or is it !?!)

We (I, well we, since it was sold out in a hot minute), all went crazy for this summer Sephora Favorites Bronze bares-ALL. Lots of love for this set, all great products BUT I barely touched it. No regrets whatsoever because life is too short but I would buy the 2 previously mentioned sets over this one in a heartbeat. I might end up looking very BRONZY in february (in our freezing -25 degrees) when I finally start playing with the Bronze bares-ALL. A little weird, but I’m unique 🙂

Next time I will do an update on Finishing Sprays … A few UPDATES are in order 😜

Thanks for stopping by my beauties

  1. You are going to be the shiniest/tannest looking Canadian in the dead of Winter! It will be great 😉 I’ve never purchased any of these sets before but I think I will go for their lips set this year. You are so right on the deal! As for that UD sample… I’ve got one (it’s almost gone :() and it’s lasted for over 30 days of regular use! It’s for sure a great deal! Loved this post, Ingrid 🙂

    1. Thanks so much Kaily! This year, Sephora Favorites Superstars & Give Me More Lips will sold out fast (based on the pictures I saw)!!! I can’t believe that you never bought one of these sets?!! Frugal me prefers a set of 14 deluxe size lipsticks than 1 Tom Ford 😉

      1. No I totally agree with you. But to be honest this is really the first year that I’ve gotten into lipstick. It probably sounds stupid but I’ve always been to insecure to wear it. I read somewhere that studies show men will stair at a woman who wears lipstick over 6 seconds longer than a woman with bare lips and that has always scared me. I prefer to be NOT looked at, haha. But there is something so liberating about finally wearing lipstick and just feeling good about yourself even if you are still insecure. Plus I’m frugal as hell so I’m totally going to be on top of that set when it shows up! Hehe 🙂

      2. That’s probably the same reason I don’t wear bright lipsticks (EVER) … I can’t stand somebody (girls or guys) having a fixation on my lips !!! 😁
        Anyway you will go crazy with this set, they always included in the past equal part of reds,pinks,nudes & berries lipsticks 🙂

    1. Well, I need to ask all my family members to buy me lip products for Christmas and for my Birthday (in December) …There is no way I’m passing on the Sephora Favorites Give Me More Lip this year, it’s way too amazing (judging by the picture :))

  2. I was on Sephora’s website yesterday and saw the give me some lip set, and literally remembered reading how much you loved it in your review. I love the beauty closet items as well but feel like I’ve already got those exact items, or something very similar…otherwise $100USD isn’t the worst thing in the world to spend on overhauling a makeup collection 🙂

    1. I totally agree with you that if you already own a lot of products from the Beauty Closet set, you should pass on this one !!!
      I can’t believe that Give Me Some Lip is still available?!! Bad reviews broke it for this one 😦 Oh! well I love it … xoxo
