Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Nude Lip Summer 2017 Set

It happened again. There was another lip kit at Sephora and of course I had to get it. I absolutely love the Sephora Favorites lip kits and have bought quite a lot of them (which I talked about in this post) so it should come as no surprise that I picked up the latest one. This one is the Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Nude Lip Summer 2017 Set. I did buy this as a birthday present to myself and it was only $33 CAD.

In this new lip set there are six items in total – one full size product and five deluxe minis. As a makeup addict and blogger I have a ton of lip products so I actually prefer minis since I never use full size lipsticks up.

Before I get to the swatch photos I do want to say that this really isn’t a nude hued kit. Honestly I don’t find many of these kits to make sense with the name, since the shades seem to vary from beige, brown, pink, mauve, and everything in between. I prefer it this way because I like the variety and I wouldn’t want a set of six lip products in the exact same nude shade, but I do find it odd that Sephora keeps having the same name for the sets when they definitely have a wider variety of colour.

One last thing I have to say before the swatches. The Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Nude Lip Summer 2017 Set, and many of the previous lip kits, seem strongly suited to lighter skin tones so with my tanned skin the shades can look very different. Some of the lighter nude hues don’t look good on me at all, and other hues pull in totally different ways on my skin tone that they would on a fairer skin tone. Just keep that in mind as you look at the photos, since a few shades may look way different on me than they do on others.

Let’s get to the products in the Sephora Favourites Give Me Some Nude Lip Summer 2017 Set

The five deluxe minis included are the following (from bottom to top in the above photo):

  • Bite Beauty MultiStick in the shade Brioche: This one surprised me because it looks like a nice neutral everyday lip colour. On me it looks like a very muted teracotta hue and it actually is super wearable. I wouldn’t call it a nude but it definitely is a neutral colour I can throw on with any eye look.
  • Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Color Splash Lipstick in the shade Rum Punch: This lipstick is a very pale pink nude that is too light for my tanned skin. I think it would suit lighter skin tones a lot nicer and be a good light nude.
  • Make Up For Ever Artist Rouge in the shade C211 Rose Wood: This one was another surprise to me. It has a deeper rosy almost plum colour on my skin tone, which seemed so different than what you’d expect for a nude lip kit. It may be far from a nude hue but I happen to love the bolder colour it ended up and am really happy with this one.
  • Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in the shade Ludwig: This liquid lipstick is a very accurate nude hue. It doesn’t quite work on my skin tone but it suits the theme and has a great formula.
  • Buxom Full-On Lip Cream in the shade Dolly: This gloss is a nice pink gloss that has the Buxom plumping effect and a nice creamy formula. I probably will use this more often overtop of another lipstick.

The one full-size item is the Ciaté London Liquid Velvet Moisturizing Matte Liquid Lipstick in the shade Bitter Sweet. This liquid lipstick has a great light formula that I have enjoyed in other shades, and the colour is a light grey mauve hue. It is unique and not something I would normally purchase.

Out of the six lip products in the Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Nude Lip Summer 2017 Set I found two to be way too light for my skin tone (The Tarte and Kat Von D items). Two of the lipsticks I really loved and am very pleased with the non-nude colours (The Bite Beauty and Make Up For Ever items). The remaining two items aren’t things I would purchase on my own, but I do like the Buxom gloss to top other lip products and am interested to experiment with the Ciaté London greige liquid lipstick. This set was a pretty even split to me and although it wasn’t my favorite of the Sephora Favorites Lip Kits, I do like it and think the variety is pretty good.

What do you think of this set? Do you have this one or any other of the Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Nude Lip Sets? Leave a comment and let me know!

  • I can’t keep up! There’s yet ANOTHER nude set?!
    This is the first I’ve seen it so thanks for giving me a new wish list item… I do like that there’s a variety of shades and not just nudes. I’m tempted to treat myself… and I see that it’s in stock online!

    • I know!! I thought they would have one, maybe 2 per year… this is like number 4 or 5 that I have gotten now!
