If you’re struggling to find the perfect NUDE shade for spring, you’re not alone. Trust me, I’ve been there and I understand how it feels like. What I did differently this time is having this Sephora Favorites set for lip. This is a great set if you want to try out a nice range of nudes! I was never able to pick out a nude for myself, but this set made it easier to see which colors would work for me.
This Sephora Favorites set launched about a week ago online and because I’ve 2-day flash shipping, I already have it in my hot little hands.
As you know, nude lips are all the rage. I don’t love all nude lips, but I’ve begun to enjoy some mauve/pink nudes a lot. My trick is to basically tried out all these favorite nudes that best compliment my lip color. Continue reading if you care to know which nude ones win?
I’m excited to get started.
The set contains five lipsticks and a lip pencil and comes in a cute pink lip shaped box. It retails for $28 USD/$33 CND. So, you get two full sized products plus three deluxe sized items isn’t a bad deal. Now it just depends on if those full sizes make the set worth it, right!
In this set, you’ll get the following:
– Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Honeycomb (beige nude)
– Buxom® Full-On Lip Cream in White Russian (nude)
– Estée Edit The Barest Contour lip Liner in 05 In The Buff (satin nude)
– Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Lip Crème in 246 Slow Burn (creamy nude rose)
– Too Faced Cosmetics Melted Matte Liquified Matte Long Wear Lipstick in Queen B (matte soft mauve)
– Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in 1993 Comfort Matte (medium brown)
This set is from Sephora’s Spring Collection 2017.
So, I think I’ll start with something that I’ve been wearing and loving.
Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Lip Crème
This item is quite a treat for someone like me who will probably never pay for a full size Marc Jacobs. I’ve the same mini in the shade Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and totally love the formula and the lovely shade.
This one is the Marc Jacob’s Le Marc Lip Crème in Slow Burn. Look how cute and luxe the packaging is! I really love this nude shade very much. I would say the shade and consistency to be of creamy nude rose. I like that it gives my lips that my lips but better kinda look. I know I’m going to have a good wear of it. It’s definitely not going last long but I will enjoy it till it runs out.
Too Faced Cosmetics Melted Matte Liquified Matte Long Wear Lipstick
Really, could Too Faced have found a longer name for this lipstick? This is a 0.08 oz/ 2.3 ml in Queen B which is a soft mauve matte. The consistency of lip cream is great on this one. Not overly drying and it glides like a dream. It feels comfortable on lips and no tacky feeling on it.
Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick
The next one is called Honeycomb which is described as a nude beige. Honestly, this is my first love with Bite lipsticks. I’ve always wanted to try this brand and glad that I did. They’re comfortable to wear and the color payoff is very good. It makes me look a little washout with this nude.
Estée Edit The Barest Contour lip Liner
This lip liner is one of their full size lip product from this box. It’s in the shade In the Buff which is of a satin nude. I find that this shade works really well with all the other shades in the box.
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick
The second full size product is this beautiful medium brown nudes, but this brown is rubbing me the wrong way. It’s giving me a dark brown vibe, but it could be different on the lips or skin toned.
Buxom® Full-On Lip Cream
The shade I got here is White Russian. I would say this is shade can simply described as nude. It has a pleasant cooling and minty type of tingle on lips but doesn’t sting. This is the palest of all the shades in the box.
I love the color selections in this set. They’re all nude, but different nudes – pinky, brown, mauve… they’re all amazing! Note that, a full size Urban Decay lipstick retails for ($21 CAD) and Estee Edit liner ($24 CAD), both of which are in full size.
I’ve voted and Marc Jacob Beauty Le Marc Lip Crème is the winner! I’ve light to medium skin-tone and this shade suit my lips perfectly. Finally, I’ve found my perfect suitor!
This set is definitely a bang for your buck. If you’re on the fence to pick the products, this set is a great way to try a lot about without breaking your wallet.I think their favorites sets are always a great value and this one is no different.
Let me ask you this, if you’ve the chance to try out different brands and colors for a super price – would you take it? My answer is obvious, I’d take it anytime.
Overall, I ‘m happy that I decided to pick this up! Love the great value and good quality brands. They’re perfect, I couldn’t ask for me. This is a limited edition set, so if you’re in the market for a nude lipsticks then I recommend you put your order in now. It’s retailed for $33 CND ($103 value) on Sephora’s website.
