Sephora, Sephora Inside JCP, Swatches

NEW Sephora Favorites Good as NUDE Lip Sampler Review and Swatches

Today at Sephora inside J.C. Penney I purchased this new Sephora Favorites Good As Nude Lip Sampler set for $28.


The set contains 1 full size product and 5 deluxe sized samples.


The full size product is the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick in the shade Wifey which is described as a delicate pinkish nude. This product by itself is $20 at Sephora.


Next up is the Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick in the shade Whip which is described as a blushed beige.  The size is 0.07 oz which has a value of $6.72. This shade was included in the holiday lip set which is still available for $15.


Next up is the Nars Lipstick in the shade Orgasm which is described as a peachy pink with shimmer.  The size is 0.05 oz which has a value of $11.67.


Next up is the Tarte Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint in the shade Exposed which is described as a rosy nude.  The size is 0.034 fl oz which has a value of $3.40.


Next up is the Marc Jacobs Beauty Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer Lipgloss in the shade Sugar Sugar which is described as a peachy-pink nude with gold shimmer.  The size is 0.05 fl oz which has a value of $8.75.


And finally the BareMinerals Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lipcolor in the shade Bo$$ which is described as a dirty pink beige. The size is 0.06 fl oz which has a value of $10.


Here’s the swatches:


Unfortunately it was a rainy day here in Ohio and I was unable to use natural light for these swatches which is what I prefer.  It appears to me that these swatches are coming off just slightly more brown/yellow than they appear in real life.

The box claims this is a $72 value but I’m only calculating $60.54. I’m wondering if these samples are available elsewhere for a higher price and that is how they are calculating a higher value.  I searched the site and used the prices of the full size products to calculate values if minis were not available.  I still think its a good value for the contents and most of us know how often we use up lip products (rarely). I only had 2 shades of the items included (the Marc Jacobs and BareMinerals) so this was an easy choice for me to go for the set.  And who could pass up the cute glittery lip shaped box.

This set is only available in stores at J.C. Penney and is not available online or in Sephora stores.  There is a similar set available online which contains the same Tarte and Nars shades.

So what do you think of this set?  Is it on your list to purchase?  I’d love to hear from you either here or on my corresponding Instagram post.

Thanks for reading.
