Every year, I look forward to Sephora's Holiday offerings in the form of their Sephora Favorites kits which range from skincare, hair care, and makeup. The inclusion of full size and deluxe size products in each kit and the great value and price point make them even more covetable. The kit typically features products from a range of popular brands which gives you an opportunity to try out some of their best sellers without having to spend a fortune. This year's anticipated Sephora Favorites Lip set, Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Lip and Liner, $60, is a departure from the kits released in previous years as it contains both lipstick and liner. I picked it up a couple of days ago when I spotted it in store and today I'll be sharing details and swatches.

This year's set contains four full sized items and three of them are lipliners. You get a clear lip liner in No Bleeding Lips which helps to prevent feathering and lipstick from transferring out of your lip line. I happen to love this product and used it many times with the original OCC Lip Tars since they had the tendency to transfer and bleed. You also get coordinating lip liner shades to go along with the categories aforementioned. Laura Mercier's lip pencil in Naked would pair beautifully with YSL's Le Nu, while Smashbox's Always Sharp Lip Liner would pair well with Stila's Beso liquid lipstick or MUFE's Artist Rouge in M-401 and so forth.
My initial thought is that the inclusion of four full size items with three of them being full size liners can either be a hit or miss with you. I have a sizable stash of lipsticks and glosses but I rarely own any lip liners. I think I may have a total of 1o in my collection so this set was a nice addition for me. However, if you prefer full size lipsticks and lip glosses, then you might be disappointed. I honestly don't care too much for the full size shade transformer in Turn Down, but I will make good use of it. Swatches to follow below. Note: The No Bleeding Lips Lip liner was not swatched since it's clear.
This set has a great range of lip products in different finishes and textures to try from many popular brands. You can pick out your favorites and perhaps find a product that you love that you will commit to purchasing full size. This would make a great holiday gift. It has a retail value of $185 USD and it's priced at $60 USD.
Thanks for stopping by today.
