I have issues with self control and makeup already, but put holiday gift sets in the mix, and game over! I can’t stay out of Sephora lately, and little gems like THIS are a reason why. I just bought 6 high end lipsticks and glosses for $28. I’m so excited! And by the way, there are tons of holiday gift sets out, but this particular one I believe is only available at Sephora inside JC Penney’s. 

This is what the inside of the packaging looks like if you’re really curious. I don’t usually save the little boxes, but I know many people do. The inside of this one sucks though because it’s cut to fit the lip products. I imagine they do that so they’re a little safer when they ship! 

L-R: Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in Pretty Boy (with brush), Stila Lip Glaze in Apricot, Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Pomegranate, Tarte Glamazon Pure Performance 12-Hour Lipstick in Inspire, Buxom Full-On Lip Cream in Kir Royale, and Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Nylon Nude.

What drew me to this lip sampler was the idea of trying out an OCC Lip Tar. I’ve always wanted to try one and never wanted to buy one, but this set really enticed me! I also love the Buxom Lip Creams and love the other brands pictured, so this was a no brainer for me.
There is a really nice mix of colors in this sampler. Pretty Boy is super bright and barely any of the OCC Lip Tar goes a super long way. It’s not a normal lip gloss. I will play with it and let you all know what I think! In previous experiences with the Stila Lip Glazes, I’ve found that they’re not long wearing and very sticky. I still like the look so I may get some use out of it anyway. I love lip pencils, and I love Bite Beauty, so I’m sure the Pomegranate shade will get some wear. I’ve never tried a Tarte lipstick, only their Lipsurgence, so I’m super excited to give this nude pinky rose shade a whirl. Buxom Lip Creams…I die…I want to buy the mega set they have but I need more of these like I need a hole in the head. The formula and colors are amaze-balls. And lastly, Smashbox Nylon Nude is one of the most horrendous colors for my complexion and lip color that I could find. I’ll either gift that one or layer a colored gloss on top.

All in all, I think there’s really something for everybody in this set. Have you tried it? It’s one of the cheaper lip sets out there right now and I love almost all of the colors.

Sponsor Shout Out!

Today I want to give a special shout out to No Wrinkles Til Fifty, who is one of my sidebar sponsors this month! I’m so excited to have her here on the blog this month. She writes about how to avoid wrinkles, and I find her site so informative! Read about her expertise on why you should avoid sugar, why you should stay out of the sun, and lots of other topics on her blog. I can hardly believe she is actually 35 years old, as I am only 27 and have major skin envy! I will be hanging on to her every word and you should too! Read more about her here.
