A loadful of Lippies in these Sephora Favorites sets

Hiya bellas, Today I’m going to be sharing with you two lip sets I picked up from Sephora last year. After months of testing, I can give you my opinion on the items because most of them are individually available and Sephora always has different variations of these lip sets on offer if you’re interested in picking one up. Also, I think the new ones for 2018 will be released soon so I can let you know if it’s worth it. Let’s start with the smaller of the two sets.

Wishlist Wednesday – Tarte Holiday Sets 2016

With throngs of holidays sets being released by brands each week, I can’t help but lust over some of them. After experiencing sub-par, mediocre workmanship in this holiday collection last year, I’ve been skeptical to purchase any holiday sets thus far. I’ve been brainwashed into thinking the items are made in bulk on the other side of the world to save costs because they know people NEED to buy gifts for their loved ones. I know all items are made in bulk in factories all over the world, but hey, I’m trying to change my perception. I’ve seen so many gorgeous new…
