Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Nude Lip

What it is:
A limited edition Sephora gift set featuring five nude lip products for Spring 2016. 

Products included are:
  • Marc Jacobs Beauty Mini (P)Outliner Longwear Lip Pencil in Prim(Rose) 
  • NARS Dolce Vita Lipstick in Dolce Vita

Verdict: This lip set is a great steal and I loved all the colors. The NARS Lipstick and Nudestix are both full sized and together retail for $51, that alone makes the set well worth the $28 price tag. This set sold out quickly online and I am not sure it will be coming back in stock. I was able to find mine at the Sephora Store at The Grove in Los Angeles. I have seen the kit in a few stores so if you want one keep hunting and your bound to get lucky.
