Gift Guide: Sephora Give Me Some Lip

Give Me Some Lip

Give Me Some Lip


Today is the last day for the Sephora VIB Event and I’ve got another great gift idea for ya’ll. It happens to be another lip kit. Lip collections are a pretty safe makeup gift, in my opinion. I feel like everyone loves a good lip gloss. The Sephora Give Me Some Lip Kit a fantastic score at $25 (a $90 value) that includes 6 high end lip products in a variety of finishes and pretty neutral colors. There is nothing in here that is too loud that it wouldn’t be appropriate for everyday wear. The kit includes:
– 0.10 oz Laura Mercier Lip Glacé in Bare Pink
– 0.07 oz Buxom Full-On Lip Polish in Dolly
– 0.14 oz NARS Lip Gloss in Turkish Delight
– 0.08 oz Fresh Sugar Rosé Tinted Lip Treatment
– 0.05 oz Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Rhubarb
– 0.10 oz Tarte LipSurgence Lip Luster in Glitzy

The Tarte product is actually a full size.

Here are swatches of the products as they come in the kit from left to right:

Fresh, Laura Mercier, Buxom, Nars, Bite, Tarte

Fresh, Laura Mercier, Buxom, Nars, Bite, Tarte

All of these products are high quality and the packaging itself makes the presentation fab as well. I mean, who doesn’t love rose gold?! It makes a perfect gift for a friend or a co-worker that you actually like! Get it!

Final Verdict: Give me THAT lip kit!!!

Good luck with all your holiday shopping!!!!

Bronzed and Ready for SPRING!

It’s been unseasonably cold here in Texas. Like, I’ve had to re-bust out my sweaters, cold. And frankly, it’s getting ridiculious. I mean, I’m not excited about the 100+ temps of summer, but some fresh, hammock weather would be nice. Today I was going to wear a bronze-springy look if it killed me!! A fun way I like to add a pop of color to a monochrome look is with a colored liner on the bottom lash line. I especially like a good teal/bronze combo, which is what I opted for in this look.

Winter…in the middle of Spring

Hey Peeps! So the weather in Texas has been completely bananas lately. One day, it’s beautiful and sunny, the next cold and rainy. Pretty typical for Texas actually, but I’m really ready for some consistant SPRING weather. This was a particularly cold day (like, highs in the 40’s!) for APRIL and it jerked me out of my bright spring tones and back into the rich, warm tones that remind me of the colder months. Here’s the Look:

Go Rangers!

So yesterday was the home season opener for the Texas Rangers. I think that nothing says Spring like a day at the Ballpark! Even though I wasn’t able to attend the game, I was for sure celebrating the start of the season with my Rangers jersey and makeup look. Bonus: WE WON! Take that Josh Hamilton!!
