Whenever I go shopping at Sephora, there’s a rule I steadfastly adhere to. I tell myself that I can only walk out of the store with what I’m able to carry in my two hands.
No baskets, ever, because the minute a basket gets up in the mix, my credit card starts throbbing with a white hot heat.
Buuuut, you know what they say: where there’s a will, there’s a way. 🙂
With products like the new Sephora Favorites Give Me More Lip Ultimate Lip Sampler Set ($59), I’m able to maximize my self-imposed system of budgetary beauty tyranny. #imjustsayin
The glorious new holiday kit includes 17 (!) sample-sized lip products from 14 makeup brands.
That’s a ton of variety. What’s more, the pieces span a wide range of finishes, textures and coverage levels.
Sephora sorted the products by color family — nudes, berries, pinks and reds — which gives the kit a cohesiveness you don’t always find in limited edition sets.
I’m stoked that so many of my favorite brands are represented (like Laura Mercier, Too Faced, Benefit and Hourglass), and I’m also looking forward to playing with some things I haven’t tried, like Kat Von D’s Liquid Lipstick and Stila’s Vinyl Lip Gloss.
And, hello! — how adorable is this Bite Beauty lipstick bullet?
