The Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Nude Lip Set Is Perfect For Valentine’s Day!

Being a beauty addict I try to look for deals so that I can get the most beauty products for my money and I’ve found Value Sets to be one of the best ways to do this. I love shopping Sephora online and I did enroll in Sephora Flash to get free 2-day shipping for a year with no minimum purchase. I also get 3 free samples with every order.

Last week I ordered the new Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Nude Lip. You get 5 lipsticks and a lip liner with this set in a cute pink lip shaped box with black confetti.

The box contained…

Here are the swatches from top to bottom.

Urban Decay, Too Faced, Buxom, Bite, Marc Jacobs, Estee Lauder.


I really feel like this set was a deal at $28 ($88.00 value). The Urban Decay Lipstick is a full-sized product and the other 4 lipsticks are nice large sized samples that gave me a chance to try brands that I had never used before like Marc Jacobs.

I also can’t wait to try the Estée Edit The Barest Contour lip Liner, it looks like a very creamy and soft liner which I love.

This set would also make a really nice Valentine’s Day gift, I may pick up another one for my mom!

Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Crème Lipstick Review

This is a month of Mini’s! I got this mini Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Crème Lipstick in Slow Burn as part of the Give Me Some Nude Lip set and it’s very nice. This is my first Marc Jacobs product and I am super impressed with this creamy nude lipstick.

What’s to love?

The first think I noticed about the Marc JacobsLe Marc Lip Crème is that it is in fact super creamy. It glided on like butter and there was no need for me to use a liner. The color I got was Slow Burn and it’s a beautiful light, light mauve that was super pigmented and not patchy in the least. The finish is a matte cream and not the least bit drying. It also has no scent.

Oh and the colors! I am seriously in love with all 25 shades. Rum Raspberry looks like a shade I had in the 80’s that I loved. It’s a bright berry.

It’s supposed to give 10 hours of wear and it did hold up for me most of the day although did reapply mid day.

I do feel like the case could be a little nicer for being a high-end product. It’s a light weight oval black plastic case with a sliver button on the front.

The Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Crème Lipstick is definitely on the higher price end at $30 and that’s my only hesitation on buying a full-sized product. I tend to like owning a lot shades and spending $30 on on lipstick would definitely eat my budget pretty quickly. This would be one that I would get with a coupon or in a set.
