Sephora Favorites Give Me More Lip

Sephora holiday collections are highly anticipated and tend to sell out in stores rather quickly. They really outdid themselves with this one! Here are some fast facts about this beautiful lip wardrobe.

15 lipsticks, glosses and creams

5 full size and 10 deluxe sizes

Well-known brands such as: ABH, Too Faced, Bobbi Brown, Dior, YSL, Sephora, Tarte, Urban Decay, Laura Mercier, Smashbox and Marc Jacobs

Up & Coming Superstars such as: Huda Beauty, Touch In Sol, Hourglass and Wander Beauty

$254 value for $68

Wearable colors and formulas for everyone and every style

Excellent gift idea for the Diva on your list. There is a shade for you, your mother, grandmother, daughter, niece, friend, you name it. Age appropriate for teens on up.

My only wish is that the set included a lip liner or two that would coordinate with the colors. But that probably would have jacked up the price another $20. I’ll survive using what I already have in my beauty collection!

The Dark Side Diva recommends this set 100%! Let me know if you get it and if you’re able to part with any of them. I’ll let you know if I did!

YSL ALL HOURS FULL COVERAGE MATTE FOUNDATION ysl

Retails for:  $58 for .84oz

Available at:  www.sephora.com

I’ve been dying to try this luxury foundation, not just because it’s YSL but because I’ve read so many positive reviews.  I have never spent $58 on foundation before, so my hand was literally shaking when I added YSL All Hours to my shopping cart.

PROS:  I chose the lightest shade, BR 10/Cool Porcelain and it is a perfect match. I would say it’s a true porcelain, a fair shade with some pink undertones. It’s a full coverage, matte foundation that in my opinion would be best for normal/combo/oily skin types.  All Hours claims to last for 24 hours, and while I pray I never have to wear it that long, I did get a good 14 hours out of it without having to powder my face. My large pores, fine lines and redness were completely covered. It didn’t oxidize on me, or get funky, cakey or fade.

CONS:  This matte, full coverage foundation is possibly a tad too matte for drier skin types.

YSL All Hours foundation is luxury foundation at its finest!  It honestly looked as good at 10pm as it did at when I applied it at 8am. The All Hours line also includes a primer and concealer that are on my wish list. And I can promise that my hand will not be shaking when I hit “add to cart”.

5 stars give this I do!
