This is a review and swatches of the Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Lip Kit – launched 4/6/18. I bought it because of the new glosses that are great as spring/summer items. Also, I heard how awesome the Grande matte lipstick/ lip plumper is and wanted to get my hands on it. This kit features 5 lip samplers and a full size Anastasia Berverly Hills for $28 – a whopping $67 value. This summer kit includes an exclusive preview of Tarte H2O Gloss and the new Urban Decay Gloss that have just been released this month! Available at Sephora and now, Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Lip 2018.


I’ll have a spring break, post will be light. All beauty GWP round-up posts will resume next week. Thank you!

Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Lip Review

Let’s see if the six lippies live up to the hype. All products included in the kit swatches will be at the bottom of the review!


Anastasia Beverly Hills Lipstick Review in Ruby (Full Size)

An intensely pigmented, cult-favorite matte lipstick. It delivers a rich, long-wearing matte look to your lips. Apply with the flat sponge-tip applicator for precision and an unforgettable look.

IcanGWP Review: If you have very pigmented lips and most lip products hardly have concentrated enough color to show, you may consider this product. This ultra-matte lipstick from Anastasia Beverly Hills in Ruby (cool red shade) has an extraordinary pigment. It looks gorgeous on the lips. You will see in the swatch image below that it looks awesome on the skin – no lines! It’s not patchy nor has streaky finish. I adore the classy black and rose gold packaging. The matte finish, formula, long wear hours are top notch.

The application may be a bit tricky. The formula feels like it drags a little. I’d suggest using a lip brush to apply it, because the tube is huge (we get what we pay for). A high precision tip brush is a-must and the lustiest red lip look could be yours.

Bite Prismatic Pearl Multistick Review in Pink Pearl

A shimmering multistick that brings mesmerizing, pearl-inspired color to the lips, cheeks, or eyes. This shimmering multistick delivers weightless, layerable color in a silicone-free formula. Like Bite Beauty’s original Multistick, Prismatic Pearl Multistick is breathable, blendable, and buildable.

IcanGWP Review: I love the Resveratrol in it, the high potent antioxidant-rich ingredient found in red grapes and of course red wine. This Bite Prismatic Pearl multistick is FANTASTIC! I have an obsession with Bite products. All Bite Beauty products are handcrafted in the brand’s Toronto facility. You get all natural cosmetics that can rival the quality of high-end cosmetic brands and products, for a great price.

The Pink Pearl shade is a metallic pink with red and pink shimmer. It glides on easy and we can build it up. The metallic multistick is a quite rare item. It’s wonderful if you are looking for an all-in-one product to either match your look, reduce your makeup vanity or if you’re on-the-go, it’s so convenient. The glitters are fine and pretty. However, it’s quite a glitter bomb and several genius Sephora reviewers recommend using it before your regular lipstick. I agree.


Grande Cosmetics HydraPlump Liquid Lipstick Review in Smoked Cherry – Red Mauve

A plumping liquid lipstick with long-term, hydrating benefits. Decadently creamy with intense color payoff, this semi-matte liquid lipstick utilizes active ingredients, Volulip™, Instaplump™, and Hyaluronic Acid, to give an instant plump in three to five minutes with no strings attached.

IcanGWP Review: If you are looking for a matte lipstick that plumps and adds stunning color to the lips all at once, this is a good choice for you. Here’s the pros: pigmentation is amazing, it appears to plump my lips, love the angled lipstick wand, packaging looks elegant, not too moisturizing nor too drying finish, it stays for 6 hours for me and the gold packaging with side peek-through feel luxurious and very practical.

Here’s the cons: the chemical gingery smell is terrible and it stings so intensely and lasts so long, like an hour for me (almost all reviewers said it’s tingling a little bit and fades away quickly).

If you have some little lines on your lips, this product can plump that out temporarily. You will see in the swatch image below that the skin is visibly plumped and smoother than others. This is not a standard matte lipstick considering that it’s a plumper too it’s worth it. The result would be different from one to another, mine seem to have a big response and big impact. This is my favorite item in the kit. It’s a nice set to own if you plan to try this product anyway but do not want to commit on the $25 price tag.

The Smoked Cherry is a warm dark cherry shade, gorgeous! Strawberry Rhubarb and Vintage Rose are the best selling shades.

Kat Von D Studded Kiss Creme Lipstick Review in Love Craft

A breakthrough new lipstick combining super-creamy color and weightless, comfortable long wear. Introducing the new and reborn Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick—the creamiest, most cushiony and unbelievably pigmented lipstick to ever cross your lips.

IcanGWP Review: Here comes KVD’s cult-favorite lipstick and it lives up the name. I own a few shades and they are glam and satisfying. It would be so awesome if this kit included the shade White Out. This collection features every artist’s dream: Kat Von D’s first-ever pure white lipstick mixer, “White Out.” Use it as a base to adjust the tone of your lip colors, or mix into other shades to customize the pigment.

The packaging is fierce and unique. The creamy, dreamy lipstick glides on smoothly and doesn’t seem to smear like other color rich formulas. I can feel the buttery softness on my lips. It doesn’t last all day and needs touch-ups. I find it offers comfortable wear, smoothness, and it’s moisturizing. It’s a beautiful matte but doesn’t dry out my lips!

Love Craft is a sensual satin-matte mauve pink nude. It’s a perfect nude for my light complexion. It’s a subtle everyday glamour for everyday wear or can be worn for more formal occasions also.


Urban Decay Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cusion Lip Gloss in SPL

An ultra-shiny lipgloss that glides on cushiony-soft and provides long-lasting wear that’s comfortable, not tacky. Laced with vitamin E and peppermint oil, UD’s hydrating formula leaves lips feeling nourished, has an immediate plumping effect and comes in a yummy vanilla-mint flavor.

IcanGWP Review: This new gloss from Urban Decay receives a 4.7 average review score from Nordstrom and 4.3 from Sephora. Here’s what reviewers like about it: comfortable, cooling effect, easy to apply, not sticky, goes on smooth, great colors, isn’t sticky, it lasts, looks good and is minty fresh.

This shade SPL can be described as holographic candy pink with iridescent sparkle. I love the pink sparkle and deep shine glossy finish. The burning is not what I expected, since I’m not into peppermint oil. People love it and it’s the best lip gloss or HG for many people as I read. Blacktalk is the best selling shade.

Tarte H2O Lip Gloss in Bora Bora  (coming soon at Sephora)

A water-based lip gloss packed with ocean-sourced nutrients in holographic, metallic, cream, and pearlescent finishes with an intense, super-lacquered shine. This lip gloss pampers lips while lacquering them with nourishing pigment and a glassy shine that makes them look more luscious. Antioxidant-rich marine plant extracts help smooth the appearance of lip lines for a fuller appearance.

IcanGWP Review: Bora Bora can be described as a holographic pearl shade. The clear gel is cushiony and feels comfortable on the lips. No plumping, taste nor strong perfume, just a lovely vanilla scent. It’s quite sticky – that’s why it stays on much longer than most glosses. I love the glitters that look holographic a little when you turn your face. It looks awesome in sunlight. The finish is an intense water/glass shine. Something different… it will be too bright for winter but excellent and not too muted for spring/summer! If you use it as a lip topper, the luminous shine will look great with any and every skin tone, in my opinion. It’s super cute and super versatile!
