Sephora Favorites Holiday Lip Kit Review

Hi everyone,

Since we’re in that weird time between Christmas and New Years and no one has any idea what day it is, I thought that this would be the perfect time for a new post. I have a fun one today, and we’re going to be going through the Sephora Favorites Holiday Lip Kit. Every year Sephora brings out a new version of this kit, and I think it’s great. I don’t always love them, but this one went on my wishlist as soon as it came out.

This kit has seven lip products that include lipstick, lip shine, glossy lip balm and lip plumper. Two of the seven are full size.

The first product we’re going to start with is the Rare Beauty Stay Vulnerable Glossy Lip Balm in Nearly Neutral. This is one is full size. This is what I would call medium brown, almost chocolate, in color. When I swatched it it didn’t seem to be overly sticky and even though it’s a glossy lip balm, it doesn’t seem to be too sheer. You definitely get some decent color payoff. I also really like the packaging on this. Most tubes of lip gloss are just that, round tubes that roll everywhere, but this one is flat on the back and I really like little details like that.

Next up we have the second full size product, the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Pillow Talk. You guys already know, this lipstick is iconic. The hold that it has on the beauty world is absolutely justified, it’s an incredible lipstick. Goes on smooth, lasts all day and the color is perfect. Plus, the packaging is just beautiful. Pillow Talk will forever be part of my makeup collection.

Moving on we have the Nars Afterglow Lip Shine in Orgasm. This is a high shine, hydrating lip gloss that claims it lasts for up to eight hours (which I can confirm, because I’ve already worn it). This is in the shade Orgasm, which is the iconic Nars shade name and color and in this application it’s a very pretty peachy pink with gold shimmer. I really like this, definitely recommend if you’re looking for a really good lip gloss for your collection.

The fourth product we have is the Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme Lip Plumper in Clear. This is also an iconic lip product, this plumper is the go to for a lot of people, including myself, and has been for ages. This has a high shine finish and is actually pretty hydrating.

Next up we have the Urban Decay Vice Hydrating Lipstick in Backtalk. This is a hydrating, long wearing lipstick in a very pretty mauve/nude pink shade. I’m wearing this today and I’m really liking it. It went on super smooth and it’s very pigmented. I definitely recommend if you haven’t given this lipstick a try. It’s also on sale right now at Sephora and they still have a few good shades left, including this one.

The second to last lipstick we have is the GVXE Anaheim Shine High Performance Satin Lipstick in Original Recipe. For anyone that doesn’t know, GVXE is Gwen Stefani’s makeup line. It made a lot of sense to me why this was in this kit when I saw the color because it’s a true red, and beauty wise, one of the things she’s known for is wearing a red lip. And I can honestly say, based on the swatch, that this is a really good red lipstick. It is high shine, which isn’t typically where I lean for a red, but the color is so nice that it’s piqued my interest and I’m excited to wear it.

And the last lip product we have is the Pat McGrath Labs MatteTrance Lipstick in Vendetta. This lipstick calls itself lightweight and richly pigmented with a modern matte finish. I haven’t worn this yet so I can’t comment on the weight of it, but just from the one swipe swatch I did, I can tell you it’s incredibly pigmented. It’s dark red in color and so pretty. It’s that kind of dark red that is starting to lean into berry but still maintains being red and I’m excited to try it out.

That about wraps it up for this post, I’m excited to wear all of these and I’ll let you guys know what I think when I do!

Until next time, I hope you’ve having a great holiday and I’ll see you in January :).

Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Mini Set Review Part Two

Hi everyone,

Today I’m back with part two of Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Mini Set Review, I will link part one below if you haven’t read it. I wanted to first talk about the Huda Beauty Legit Lashes mascara. I got a sample of this when I placed the lipstick order and I tried it out today. First impression, I like it a lot more than I thought I would. I have pretty long lashes anyway, but the volume and length this gives is impressive. I highly recommend.

So the lip set I’m going to be talking about today is the Blushed Nudes. This like the Au Naturel Nudes has a plastic sleeve over it and Blushed Nudes is written in metallic pink.




In this set you get four mini and this set focuses on nudes that have both warm and cool undertones. The first lipstick we have is Bombshell and I would describe this as a peachy nude.





The next lipstick we have is Wifey. I would say that this is on that pinkish/very light brown line.




The second to last lipstick we have is Muse. This is such a pretty color, it’s a deeper rose shade and this is a lip color you can tell is going to look so nice on.




And the last liquid lipstick we have is Venus. This is the one lipstick in this kit that’s more on the brown side, but it’a nice medium brown.




That about wraps it up for this post, I looked on the Huda Beauty website and there is a third lip set with all brown lipsticks so if that ever comes back in stock I’m going to purchase it.

Until next time, I’d love to know which of these lipstick shades is your favorite and you can never have too many liquid lipsticks :).

Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Mini Set Review Part One

Hi everyone,

Happy Friday! During National Lipstick Day a ton of different beauty brands were having great sales, so I had a little look around and found a few things I wanted from Huda Beauty. I ended up picking up two of their liquid matte mini sets, I also picked up a sample of the Legit Lashes mascara, and I’m going to be talking about them in two different posts.

This was my first time buying straight from the Huda Beauty website and I have to say I love their packaging. When I opened the box I was greeted with tissue paper with lips on it and the products themselves were in a bubble wrap envelope. The bubble wrap itself is in the shape of hearts which I’ve never seen before and I think it’s adorable.



So the set I’m going to talk about today is the Au Naturel Nudes. This has a plastic sleeve over it and Au Naturel Nudes is written in metallic rose gold.




In these sets you get four minis and this set in particular is between peachy and brown, warmer nudes if you will, in shade range. I have a few of the Huda Beauty matte liquid lipsticks and I really like formulation, they have great staying power, they’re nicely pigmented and they don’t feel heavy on the lips. The first shade we have is Girlfriend. This is a deeper shade, somewhere between peach and brown.




The next shade we have is Trendsetter. This is more of a true brown.




The second to last lipstick we have is Sugar Mama. This is peachy in color and it’s what I would call more of a true peach.




And the last liquid lipstick in this set is Bikini Babe. This is the lightest shade in the set and this is a really light nude. I have a two other liquid lips in shades similar to this and I really like it.




That about wraps it up for this post, if any of you guys have this set or any of these lipsticks I’d love to know what your favorite shade is/what shade you have.

Until next time, have a good weekend and you can never have too many liquid lipsticks :).
