Rabbit Reviews: Sephora Give Me More Lip (The Nudes)
As part of their holiday gift collection, Sephora released the "Give Me More Lip" package, which is a 17-piece lip product set from a whole bunch of different brands. The products are what I’d call “deluxe sample” size, which means they’re not full size but they’re bigger than your average sample. At $59, it is absolutely a good deal and is a great way to try a bunch of different lip products before committing to a full size. Plus, the included brands are top notch!
Here I’ll be talking specifically about the four nude colors. I think I liked the way the Laura Mercier one looked on me the most, but I also liked the texture of the bareMinerals one.
Too Faced La Creme Color Drenched Lip Cream in Naked Dolly
This color is what I’d consider to be a true nude, with only the slightest hint of pink. It’s very creamy but is mostly matte. Since I’m really pale, I wouldn’t wear it on a daily basis because it could wash me out, but I still like it. It’s very nice and moisturizing, although not long lasting at all.
Stila Stay All Day Vinyl Lip Gloss in Nude Vinyl
This color was actually a bit too warm for me. It’s kind of a rosy-brown-peach color, so it looks a little brownish-orange on me. The texture is a bit sticky, but it’s very opaque, pigmented and non-drying.
Laura Mercier Lip Glace in Blush
This is a sheer gloss with a rosy brown tint. It is similar to my natural lip color but makes it slightly more nude. It looks nice on its own but would probably also look nice over a lipstick. The texture is pretty moisturizing, non-sticky and creamy; however, it’s not very long lasting.
bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Speak Your Mind
The color is described as “bubble gum pink”, which I think is accurate except that also has a bit of brown in it. It’s kind of a pale, rosy nude color. The formula is pretty creamy and non-drying, and it sets a bit after application to give it some lasting power. Overall, a very pleasant lipstick in a nice color.
All colors swatched on my arm:
