Sephora Favourites The Kissentials

dsc_8754

Being the makeup lover that I am, when my cousins were recently out in America and asked if i’d like anything brought back, I of course asked for something from Sephora. I was so grateful to receive one of Sephora’s favourites sets: The Kissentials set.

It contains 1 full size lip product and 5 deluxe sized mini lip products all of which are super wearable shades that can suit any skin tone. What I also love most is that this set gives you the chance to try out new brands and products without having to buy anything full size!

The set retails for $28 (£23) with a value of $82 (£67), so you are definitely getting great value for money with this set! With that being said, you can only purchase the set inside selected Sephora stores inside any JCPenney, so it isn’t the easiest to get your hands on.

Inside you will find:

Buxom Full-On Lip Polish in Sugar

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Rose

Too Faced Melted in Melted Chihuahua

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lovesick

Stila All Day Liquid Lipstick in Bacca (Full size)

Tarte Tarteist Glossy Lip Paint in Snap

Overall I think this is a great set, I love how it has given me the chance to discover new brands that I love and test out products that are tricky to get in the UK. The range of finishes within the set was also a great asset. With there being glosses, mattes and even the added lip balm I was really pleased with the range.

The Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick is my favourite out of them all, its matte finish is not at all drying on the lips and the cool, pink toned shade really compliments my pale skin. I also love the Too Faced Melted; I’d wanted to try one for so long so was delighted to find one in the set.

The lip-gloss by Buxom is incredibly glossy; the individual specks of glitter are visible on the lips leaving such a gorgeous shine! It does however contain ingredients to plump up the lips, which gives a tingling sensation on the lips; therefore I’d recommend not applying it directly before a meal!

The Tarte Lip product is also a lovely nude to wear as part of a natural look. I am also so pleased with the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment, it adds back so much moisture especially during the winter, chapped lips season!

Whats your favourite product out of this set?

      The Kat Von D one is great, I’d definitely reccomend picking one up if you can! I love the formula as well, it’s so soft yet it lasts such a long time! X

      Thank you!! I’d never heard of Buxom before, but I absolutely love it. It’s hard to even describe how sparkly the lipgloss is! Hopefully you have a trip to Sephora soon, I’d happily come too.

      Thanks lovely! I was surprised at the value as well, considering the full size Stila Lip product costs more than the set all together! X

    Everything looks so pretty! I think my favourite shade has to be the Kat Von D one… Everytime I see it in a blog or online I always question why I haven’t bought any of their lippies yet. Also I love the way you take your photos! Everything is so clear and nicely laid out.

      Thanks lovely! That’s such a massive compliment to me! I’m surprised I’d never bought any Kat Von D lip products sooner as well! They are all so smooth and not at all drying. X
