Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Lip Gift Set Review, Swatches, Photos

Totally off the topic of makeup but is anyone watching The Walking Dead on AMC? Holy Zombie-time Batman! Loves it! It’s super fun seeing this graphic novel come to life and they really haven’t forsaken anything creating this. It’s gruesome, bloody, cuss-filled zombie fun! I’m obsessed with Zombie’s so this is so me.

I even got out my Hello Kitty Rest In Peach Zombie Glitter Body Spray out, you know, Zombies are people too, they dig the glitter and shiz. Fun fact, Andrew Lincolns, the dude that plays the legendary Rick Grimes, is British! I dunno who I have a bigger crush on, Rick Grimes come to life or little Glen, token smart Asian kid.

Anyway, enough of about Zombies.

Let’s talk cool makeup deals.

Has anyone indulged in the Sephora Favorites Gift Sets? These have gotten better and better every year and feature a plethora of great products. Now you might be confused and assume they include only Sephora makeup but not the case dude! They actually contain an array of products from fav brands such as Tarte, Bare Minerals, DKNY, and so much more.

I recently checked out the Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Lip Gift Set.

Check it!

This gift set features ten smashing lipglosses from Sephora, Too Faced, Smashbox, Tarte, Cover FX, Lorac, and Bare Minerals. Cool eh? Some are mini, some medium, and some full size so you’re getting a nice assortment of goodies.

Now these are good and they are bad. They are bad because they should be available year round so we can use them to test out various products. Also bad because around this time of the year many are strapped for cash and they aren’t willing to dish out on themselves when they are busy getting gifts for friends and family so yes year round would be fabulous!

Now the good….

This set features ten various lip products you can test out, swatch, wear around, and play around with. It gives you a great way to try out several lipglosses before indulging in the full size and hell in some cases Sephora is giving you the full size in this set.

So what do you get?

$40 snags you the following:

  • Smashbox Lip Enhancing Gloss in Tease
  • Too Faced Glamour Gloss in Sex Pot
  • Sephora Collection Super Shimmer in Pink Ballerina
  • Sephora Collection Super Shimmer in Rusted Rose
  • Tarte Vitamin-Infused Lipgloss in 40 Winks
  • Cover FX Mint Glaze Lip Gloss
  • Lorac Multiplex 3D Lip Gloss in ClichΓ©
  • Smashbox Lip Enhancing Gloss in Radiant
  • Tarte Rise & Shine Lip Gloss and Stain in Cherry
  • Bare Minerals Buxom Lips in Roxanne

If you add up the Buxom Lips and Cover FX Mint Glaze you’re already in the door $40 so the rest is basically free goodies for you the enjoy. Both Smashbox glosses are medium size and contain a good deal of product. The two Sephora mini lipglosses are a nice size as well and the Tarte Stain and Gloss are the normal size. If you add items up it does come to well above the $40 price tag.

The set also includes a Beauty Insider Reward that gives you 100 points if you end up purchasing any of these glosses from Sephora in the future in a full size version.

I do think these make a nice gift but I think they make a better beauty tool for those of us that want to try a variety of new products and aren’t willing to commit to a large size for $20 and upwards. Granted, many beauty junkies probably already tried much of what’s inside this kit but alot of newer beauty collectors and fans will find this an ideal solution to trying various gloss formulas at a fraction of the cost.

Very cute.

Sephora Favorites as well worth indulging in. They range from $30 to $40 and cover a range of genres such as hair, fragrance, glosses, and more!

Happy Days an easy way to try out a range of makeup before committing to the full size deal.

I think Imma loves it!

Anyone try any of the Sephora Favorites?

What do you think of ’em?

Worth the haul?

Not so much?

Do share!

    I got the little black eyeliner Sephora Favorites kit during the Sephora friends and family sale…I recently bought a TON of makeup and I haven’t tried anything but the Hourglass liquid eyeliner (very nice and easy to use) and already own the MUFE eyeliner that comes with it, but I am always on the quest to find a non-smudging black eyeliner.

    It is definitely worth the money, as eyeliners always last for a while (at least for me).

    • the Muse

      awesome sky ;-D good hauling! I’m looking at the liner set now as you’re the 2nd person that told me it was fabs!

  • auroragyps

    I really don’t watch much TV so I’m not catching The Walking Dead show, but I’ve read the graphic novels and really enjoyed them. Luckily I can get them from the library.

    • the Muse

      auro the novels are fab ;-D the telly show will make you hungry for more at least the novels keep me satisfied. The show is such a tease ;-D

  • emily

    Loving the Walking Dead, sad that there’s only three episodes left for this season :(. Thanks for all of your super detailed reviews and swatches, you are my favorite makeup blog.

    • the Muse

      emily how stupid is it they only did 6!? I’m crushed! aw thanks dear! Hugs, made my day there!

  • RoxyJ

    The Walking Dead and Lost Girl are the only two shows that will sustain me until True Blood returns! πŸ™‚

    • the Muse

      aw roxy I really wanted to see Lost Girl ;-D we don’t get it here but I’m kinda hopeful they might bring it over or at least do a dvd set!

  • Zombii

    I *need* it. That is all.

    Seriously though, do you know how many lip glosses I have? Me either! They are scattered throughout the house, car, and various purses and none of them are even half empty. It’s an addiction, I tells ya. I buy shiny pretty gloss and almost never wear it because my hair gets stuck to my lips or the boy doesn’t wanna kiss my “sticky mouth.”

    But that Buxom…that’s a full size, isn’t it? I love Buxom but haven’t given in to the greedy lip gloss demon on that one yet….

    • the Muse

      LOL me too Zombii. too many to count ;-D It is indeed full size ;-D great color for Holidays too!

  • Zombii

    Ok, I just followed the link to Sephora. I didn’t know they had so many value sets! I thought there was just a fragrance one and mascara one. They’ve got a black eyeliner one! Black eyeliner! The only makeup product I’ve completely used up many times (mascara doesn’t count since it goes bad before scraping the bottom of the tube).

    Btw, what’s your favorite black eyeliner?

    • the Muse

      Ha Zombii ;-D glad I introduced you to something new.

      Mmm….good question. I really like MAC Kohl in Black Funk but I think it’s LE, also like Laura Geller i care

  • Hana

    I love these sets! I got one early in the year that had a full sized Korres lipstick and a bunch of little lip glosses and I’ve gotten a lot of use out of them. πŸ˜€ I don’t know whether I want this or this Korres set with four lip glosses and three lip butters. I might wait and see if the Sephora Favorites set goes on clearance after awhile…

      • Hana

        Oh, and I watch The Walking Dead with my best friend every week! He’s a fan of the comic and we’re both loving the show!

        Oooh, I hope you’ll review the Korres set!

        Do you think the Korres set or the Give Me Some Lip set is better in terms of quality and value?

        • the Muse

          it’s fab isn’t it Hana πŸ™‚ I’m not sure yet, haven’t really tested it out completely but I’ll review soon and let ya know!

  • Lulee

    Wow thanks for all the pics in this post muse! I’ve never indulged in these sets ( inclusion of full size items is a new thing I believe) but I always feel that the price is too steep for what are essentially samples. It’s a psychological thing I guess… I like full size products πŸ™‚

    • the Muse

      Lulee you get two full sizes in here ;-D and most samples are generous sizes in the glosses, mini versions like you’d get in most Holiday kits ;-D so isn’t too bad a deal when you do it per cost, per item ;D

  • Michelle T.

    I’ve had Give Me Some Lip for a few months and I absolutely LOVE it! I haven’t used the Sephora glosses except to try them once, but the rest get rotated in A LOT! Awesome set!

  • JoElla

    I want me some Hello Kitty Rest In Peach Zombie Glitter Body Spray! Where does one buy this little goodie at please =)

    This looks like a fantab gloss set. Lots of colors and things to try. I haven’t bought one of these sets yet, been stuck on the smashbox gloss kits.. but this one has caught my eye!

    And I am so digging the Walking Dead! I have 2 shows waiting to be watched and loved the first one.

    • the Muse

      ha joella ;-D Hot Topic has it ;-D Also Sanrio sells the HK Zombie Collection ;-D I’m stuck on the Stila ones, I heart them so bad ;-D I caught up with it on Monday! LOVE it!

  • Kristen

    Love the sephora favorites. I dont think I’ll be indulging though, its the holidays and *sigh* im broke till after Christmas.

    • the Muse

      Kristen YUP! my thoughts exactly! They should have these year round ;-D! They have a few during the Summer I think but the variety is nicer during the holidays!

  • petitez

    Off topic: The Walking Dead is good but it’s freaking me out! πŸ˜› I didn’t know its from a graphic novel. I need to catch up on all your blog posts! πŸ˜‰

    • the Muse

      hey serene LONG time no speak how are you? Yeah, it’s an ongoing graphic novel ;-D good readin’!

  • Pop! Makeup

    I’ve been looking at the gift sets on for the last couple of weeks… still not sure if they’re worth it to me (because I know I won’t like all of the products), but these seem awesome πŸ™‚

  • Promise

    Dang! Now I want this…But it’s hard to spend $40 when I just spent $62 at Korres and almost $40 on ACW…and I’m hitting up the MAC counter sometime this week for my Bday….Sigh.

  • Missy

    Muse, thank you so much for the awesome pics!! I’ve been really curious about these but wasn’t sure.. Those would be some awesome stocking stuffers for all the nieces in my life πŸ˜€

  • Paprika

    oooo have you tried the mascara set? ive been wanting to try that one for a while

  • sunnygirl

    miss musie, i love walking dead. after i found out about the first season only being 6 episodes I put the “keep” thingy on the first 3 episodes in tivo so I can go back and see them again to tide me over till the next season (which is oct, 2011 i think). anyway, i also love these sephora sets. me thinks the beauty fairy should gift you more of them to also review and swatch. thanks for all you do.

    • the Muse

      hey sunny! I did the same THING dude ;-D LOL! we are so sick ;-D I thought I’d have a little marathon a few months down the road to keep it fresh. October 2011 is WAY to far away. 6 episodes is obscene could we get, at the least, 10! Aw sunny thanks hun you’re comment delighted my day!

  • dangster

    I love the Sephora boxed sets. I picked up the Smashbox halloween set 2 weeks ago. It’s got an eyeshadow, eyeliner, lipgloss, and false eyelashes–all marked down to $10 (because Halloween was already over). I’m thrilled that I got the last one online!

    • the Muse

      awesome dangster ;-D! I didn’t see these marked down I would have explored!

  • kiwikiwidragon

    yum yum, i got the glitz and glam set since i passed on the last shimmer collection πŸ™

    It fabulous! I was considering the lip one too, i might with the BI bonus going on now

  • Kerri

    I’m so upset that sephora doesn’t do international shipping. Do you think they will ever venture into shipping OS??

  • Tala

    I got into The Walking Dead series because my boyfriend raved about it so much! I buy him a volume per special occasion–his birthday, our anniversary, and Christmas. He’s getting volume 4 on the 25th, heehee. πŸ™‚ The first episode was a bit slow, but it really picked up afterwards! Glenn’s my favorite.

    And Sephora needs to get its ass to Manila. Seriously. That set is amazing.

    • the Muse

      oh tala that’s so sweet ;-D you should buy him the compendium! they released it last year and it included 48 volumes for 40 bucks or so ;-D I was going to buy it just to have it but I have the single editions and thought it might be a bit of a waste πŸ˜›

      I <3 Glenn!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      I have hopes Sephora will spread out soon ;-D! they are launching in Mexico shortly, that's a pretty big leap!

  • HautePJ

    AHHHH, the Walking Dead is awesome. I had a nightmare after watching the first episode, but I stuck to it. Glad it got picked up for another season.

    As for the sets, I have the Glitz and Glam one and it is the bomb! So worth it and perfect for shimmery holiday looks.

    • the Muse

      I am too. 13 more episodes w00t! ;-D yay! awesome to hear so many folks lovin’ these!
