I recently went to Sephora because I was dying to try out a little deluxe sample size kit they made of several lip products.
What is in the kit?
- 0.14 oz Smashbox Lip Enhancing Gloss in Fame (true color/ rosy plum sheen)
- 0.05 oz Tarte LipSurgence™ Natural Lip Tint in Moody (deep berry)
- 0.13 oz Benefit Benetint Rose-Tinted Lip & Cheek Stain
- 0.042 oz Kat Von D Painted Love Lipstick in Celebutard (nude peach beige)
- 0.07 oz Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Polish in Leslie (original/ gilded pearl pink)
- 0.33 oz Lancome Juicy Tubes Jelly in Raspberry Ice (sheer pink coral with gold flecks)
Smashbox Lip Enhancing Gloss in Fame: Color is so pretty, it goes on smoothly and lasts awhile. It didn't feel sticky as hell like quite a few out there.
Tarte Lip Surgence Natural Lip Tiny in Moody: I thought this would be a super dark color and that I would not use it. I was totally wrong, this is by far my favorite product in the kit. You can put it on as dark or light as you want. It left my lips feeling shiny and smooth, and of course, gorgeous.
Benefit Benetint Rose-Tinted Lip & Cheek Stain: Gives you a color like you have been drinking fruit punch. It smells like roses, but not a nasty artificial rose. This is probably my #2 favorite of this box. The only thing I noticed was my lips want moisture right now since it is getting colder outside, and this doesn't really give them moisture.
Kat Von D Painted Love Lipstick in Celebutard: Worst product that I have bought in a long time. Why Sephora would include a total creamy nude in a kit, I have no clue. I have doubts that this color would look good on anyone. That being said, what I do like about this lipstick is the consistency. It goes on silky smooth, which leads me to believe I would actually like her line, just in a different color.
Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Polish: Very pretty color for pale skin. It tingled like crazy when I put it on, so I am wondering if it is a plumper, or if that is normal. Not quite sure...
Lancome Juicy Tubes Jelly in Raspberry Ice: Super sticky, but you get a shine on it that looks like a glass coating. Really sheer color with glitter. This is pretty good to go over another color to lighten that color up. I doubt I would wear it by itself.
All in all I am in love with two of the products, and plan on purchasing the full size as soon as my sample size runs out. This is why I love getting little sample sizes of products, I can test them and see which works great with me.
