Give Me More Lip

Give Me More Lip

Today I will be reviewing the Give Me More Lip holiday set from Sephora. This was something I had wanted for Christmas and was fortunate enough to receive it! I have an insane amount of lip products already but I wasn’t going to let that stop me!

Give Me More Lip Open

This set is just beautiful! It comes with 17 lip products from well known brands that are deluxe sized and there is supposed to even be one full sized product included. The colours are organized into nudes, pinks, berries, and reds. I do have to say that trying to swatch these onto my lips was tough because some of the colours wanted to stain. In the process of constantly wiping off lip colours, all the makeup around my mouth was wiped away too so just ignore how atrocious that looks! Let’s see what these colours were like!

Nudes

NUDES

Too Faced Nude Swatch

Too Faced Nude

Too Faced La Crème Colour Drenched Lip Cream in Naked Dolly (0.05 oz)

Alrighty, let’s start off with our first nude which is from Too Faced! This colour is described on Sephora as a satin pink. The formula for these lipsticks are supposed to be rich and creamy and are infused with moisturizing and strengthening benefits. The full size of this product is $26 and is 0.11 oz making this worth about $11.80. Holy moly! I don’t typically wear colours that are really nude but I don’t mind this! The formula really is creamy so I will be interested to see how long it lasts on the lips.

Bare Minerals Nude Swatch

Bare Minerals Nude

bareMinerals Mini Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Speak Your Mind (0.05 oz)

I LOVE this colour. I got this on Christmas day and it was the colour I decided to wear that same day. This colour is described by Sephora as a bubblegum pink which I do agree with but I think it is a subdued kind of colour. Most bubblegum pinks I look at and kind of cringe but this is absolutely beautiful. It is perfect to wear with a more made up eye look. This formula is supposed to be creamy and ultra-pigmented with a rich satin finish. The full size of this product is $23 for 0.12 oz making this mini version worth about $9.58. I think I would pay full size for this product!

Laura Mercier Nude Swatch

Laura Mercier Nude

Laura Mercier Lip Glacé in Blush (0.10 oz)

This colour is described as being a medium rose brown, but it comes across a bit lighter on my lips than it looks in the tube. These are meant to be sheer so that they can be worn alone or layered on top of another lip colour. I do like this colour and think I will wear it for sure! The full size of this is $29 for 0.15 oz making this worth $19.33. This is almost a full size itself so that is awesome!

Stila Nude Swatch Stila Nude

Stila Cosmetics Stay All Day Vinyl Lip Gloss in Nude Vinyl (0.04 oz)

This colour is so pigmented, I don’t think I have ever seen a gloss that goes on with such an opaque colouring. The brush has quite a bit of flexibility which I like, and it is very soft. This colour is described as a medium pink nude which I think is quite accurate! These glosses are meant to be very glossy and shiny and are meant to look like you have a lipstick on. The full size of this is 0.14 oz and retails for $32 making this worth about $9.14. I look forward to using this!

Makeup Forever Nude Swatch Makeup Forever Nude

Make Up For Ever Waterproof Lipliner Pencil in 3C Medium Neutral Beige (0.025 oz)

This colour is described as a medium nude beige and is said to be creamy, non-transferable and long lasting. I actually was more fond of this colour on my lips than I was just looking at the pencil. I am quite fair so colours that are too beige can look kind of funny on me. However, I think this would be great with a gloss or a lipstick over top! The full size of this product is 0.04 oz and retails for $23 making this pencil worth about $14.38. That seems crazy to me because it isn’t too big but I guess pencils can last a long time.

Pinks

PINKS

Tarte Pink Swatch Tarte Pink

Tarte LipSurgence Power Pigment in Flush (0.04 oz)

This colour is absolutely beautiful! I can’t stop looking at it. I feel like this is almost a berry-ish kind of pink and it is actually described by Sephora as a sheer berry. These lip tints are supposed to be moisturizing and provide bold colour. I absolutely can not wait to wear this out and about! This is actually a full size product and it retails for $29! Amazing! If this is as good as it seems, I may need to try other colours in the line.

Posie Balm Pink Swatch Posie Balm Pink

Benefit Cosmetics Posiebalm Hydrating Tinted Lip Balm (0.1 oz)

This colour is described as a poppy pink. It is a really sheer wash of colour that is quite hydrating while providing a slight tint. I think this will be nice for when you want to have a little sheen to your lips but don’t want to wear anything heavy. These are meant to be sheer so I am glad that was their intention! The full size of this product is 0.10 oz and retails for $22 making this teeny sample worth about $2.20. I don’t think this one will last me too long at all.

Bite Pink Swatch Bite Pink

Bite Beauty Luminous Crème Lipstick in Palomino (0.07 oz)

This colour is absolutely gorgeous! I keep wanting to describe it as a raspberry watermelon kind of colour, so it obviously makes me think of the summer! It is described on Sephora as a vibrant magenta which I definitely will not argue with. These colours are meant to be moisturizing and long-lasting. I am so excited to wear this colour! The full size of this retails for $28 and is 0.15 oz making this sample worth about $13.08. This is another one that I could see myself purchasing the full size if I like it!

Too Faced Pink Swatch Too Faced Pink

Too Faced Melted Liquefied Long Wear Lipstick in Fuchsia (0.16 oz)

I have heard so much about the Melted Lipsticks from people on Youtube and from various blogs. I was so happy to be able to try it. This is such a pretty colour, I think it would be perfect for the spring and summer! This is described as a hot pink and that it is. If I like the formula of this, there are definitely other colours I would like to try. This does feel a little wet so I will be interested to see if it lives up to the promise of having “staying power”. The full size is 0.4 oz and retails for $25 making this version of it worth about $10.

Berries

BERRIES

Sugar Berry Swatch Sugar Berry

Fresh Sugar Berry Tinted Lip Treatment (0.08 oz)

This is a lip treatment that is meant to nourish, protect, and plump the lips. It also has SPF 15 which is really nice because we need to remember to protect our lips from the sun too! This is described as a bold flirty berry, but I do find it a little bit subtle which I like. It can be a little uneven in the application so it just takes a little bit more time to make sure it looks smooth. The full size of this is 0.15 oz and retails for $26 making this worth about $13.83.

Buxom Berry Swatch Buxom Berry

Buxom Mini Full-Bodied Lipstick in Menace (0.04 oz)

This is an absolutely beautiful colour! It is described as a rich wine colour and it is actually sold out in this colour on Sephora so it must be a popular one. I think this will be so pretty for the winter! I didn’t really have any berry colours before receiving this set so I am so happy to have this colour! The full size is 0.13 oz and retails for $26 making this mini version worth about $8.

Tarte Berry Swatch Tarte berry

Tarte LipSurgence Lip Tint in Moody (0.06 oz)

If I had to describe this as a kind of berry colour, I guess I would have to say it’s more of a strawberry or cranberry type. I am happy to have a berry that isn’t so deep though because it is nice to have some variation in your lip products. This is described as a deep berry on Sephora which I don’t quite agree with but that is alright. These are meant to be moisturizing lip stains that give a natural flush to your lips. The full size is 0.1 oz and retails for $29 making this mini worth about $17.37.

OCC Lip Tar Swatch OCC Lip Tar Berry

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Black Dahlia Lip Tar: Matte Test Tube (0.08 oz)

I have heard a lot about the Lip Tars and to be honest, the colour of this scared me a little bit. When it first comes out of the tube it looks black, but it can definitely be sheered out and I really like it! This one also came with its own little lip brush which I really like because not everyone has lip brushes. This is meant to be matte but I didn’t wear it long enough to see if it does become matte or not. When I first put it on, it does seem relatively glossy so I will be interested to see that. This is described as “blackest blackened red” (terrifying!) and it is another one that is sold out online. The full size is 0.33 oz and retails for $22 making this one worth about $5.33. A little bit goes a long way with this one so it may last me quite awhile!

Reds

REDS

Sephora Red Swatch Sephora Red

Sephora Collection Rouge Infusion in 10 Red Essence (0.068 oz)

This is my first Sephora brand lip product so I am happy to try it! The formula for these is supposed to have no texture and should leave the lips soft with intense colour and no sticky residue. This colour is more of a brick red than I thought it was going to be but I like it! I will definitely be interested in trying it when I can take more time to apply (and when I’m not rushing so that I don’t stain my lips). When I swatched this on my hand briefly, it did leave a stain so I hope it works the same on my lips. The full size is $18 for 0.152 oz making this worth about $8.04.

Laura Mercier Red Swatch Laura Mercier Red

Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Red Amour (0.09 oz)

Red Amour is described as a classic neutral red. The formula is supposed to be medium-to-full coverage that they claim will last 6-8 hours. I am very interested in seeing how long it really will last! I do like this colour and I think it will be nice this winter! The full size is 0.14 oz and retails for $32 making this deluxe size worth about $20.51.

Hourglass Red Swatch Hourglass Red

Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Icon (0.03 oz)

Please excuse the actual application of this one. At this point I had put so many colours on, I was really rushing because I was afraid they were all going to stain my lips. This definitely is an opaque colour and I really like it! This is another one (like the Stila) that has a very soft and pliable applicator which I like! This claims to be matte and delivers 14 hours of continuous wear without smudging or dryness. 14 hours?! I will believe that when I see it, but I really hope it lives up to that. This is actually a travel size that they sell which retails for $12 so that is awesome!

Kat Von D Red Swatch Kat Von D Red

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Outlaw (0.10 oz)

For the last colour of the bunch we have a very opaque Kat Von D colour. Just look at that swatch, holy cow! I haven’t ever owned anything by Kat Von D so I was excited to get this. I do associate her with red lips so it makes sense that this would be in here. This is described as a brick red which I would agree with and it is supposed to have a smooth, matte finish. Even while I was swatching these on my hand it dried to a matte finish so quickly so that is exciting! The full size is 0.22 oz and retails for $24 making this worth about $10.91.

OVERALL THOUGHTS

This set retailed in Canada for $70 and claimed to have a value of $230 Canadian. By my calculations everything is worth about $214.50 Canadian but my math may be a little bit off. Either way, the value of this is huge! Not only that but there is such a wonderful variety of colours, brands, and types of products in this set. I am absolutely obsessed and have already warned my family that I may be rocking a different colour of bold lip every day. I love this set, I am so glad that I got it, and I think I would ask for the same kind of set again next year if it is available! If you got this set, let me know what you thought of it in the comments! Thanks for reading!
