I don't know about you girls, but there are two essential makeup products that I simply can not live without. I like to always have mascara on my lashes and color on my lips! I feel like when I have these two things, I look presentable enough to run quick errands or answer the door when someone rings. They put a little spring in my step and make me feel somewhat girly, even in my faded jeans and a tee.

Today, I thought it would be so much fun to give away a gift set that I also have, and LOVE. I received mine for Christmas and after I experimented with the great products, thought I would give one away to one of my special bloggy friends.

You're going to love it.

I really enjoy Sephora's sampler gift sets. They take their favorite products from that year (this, being lip products) and put them all together so that you can try via trial and error and find something that might change your life! I also received the mascara gift set, and I found some I liked, but I ultimately stayed with my tried and true Dior Blackout.

Here is a description!

What it is:
A set of seven of Sephora's most talked-about lip essentials in one exclusive collection.

What it does:
This set of minis includes everything you need for a perfectly pink pout, from juicy lip glosses and a lasting lip stain to a precision liner and lip-tingling lipstick.

This set contains:
- 0.01 oz Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Stick in Amsterdam
- 0.1 oz Tarte Rise & Shine Gloss Duo in Mauve
- 0.12 oz Urban Decay Lip Junkie Lipgloss in Wallflower
- 0.28 oz Lancome Juicy Tubes in Moulin Rose
- 0.14 oz Smashbox Lip Enhancing Gloss in True Color
- 0.14 oz Josie Maran Argan Natural Volume Lip Gloss in Precious
- 0.02 oz Sephora Collection Nano Lips Liner in Candid Candy

Here is how you enter:

1. Leave me a comment telling me your MUST HAVE makeup product.
2. Post on your own blog about the giveaway and enter again!
3. Tweet/Facebook it, enter again.


GOOD LUCK! :)

concealer, mascara and burt's bees lipbalm!

Lauren said...

Laura Mercier's Tinted Moisturiser(sorry, UK spelling!).... with SPF 20, it not only makes me look healthy it actually keeps me healthy too.

Susan said...

Mascara...couldn't leave the house without it! I even go to the gym with it (and I put it on if I'm sick and headed to the doctors)!! My friends often joke about how we need to have a sleep over to see what I look like sans my mascara!

Kari Lynn said...

I MUST have eyeliner and mascara --- I figure if the eyes pop they'll just ignore the rest ;)

Korree said...

I MUST have mascara and lip gloss! My lips must be moist and my lashes visible!

Amy said...

Mascara is my must have. My eyelashes are practically invisible, so I wear mascara all of the time.

KellyV said...

I'm pretty low maintenance, but I can't go anywhere without my Burt's Bees Pomegranate Lip Balm.

Kelly said...

Concealer is a MUST! I have super dark bags under my eyes, only accentuated by my 6 month old ;), so I never leave home without the concealer!

Kelly said...

and, you're up on facebook! :)

Ginna said...

Blush, mascara, and burts bees chapstick - I'm addicted to it!

TwisterB said...

I also love Burts Bees! I use the chap stick every day, but I use their tinted balm instead of lipstick!

When I leave the house I put on a little brown mascara, just enough to curl and extend my lashes, and either tinted moisturizer with SPF or my SPF moisturizer that has glowy/sparkles in it, depending on how clear my skin is looking.

I think I'm low maintenance because, working at a bar, I have to wear a lot of slap on my face at night so now like walking around feeling "naked".

El said...

I must have mascara! It makes me look more awake. Considering I am 35 weeks pregnant and have a 2 year old, I need all the help I can get to look my best.

TwisterB said...

And I tweeted you, but I can't figure out how to post the http of the tweet so I gave you an @mention as well.

Katie said...

I can't live without my highlighter/concealer duo pen. One end covers up those hereditary dark spots under my eyes (I've resigned myself to living with them, but I don't have to show them to the world!). And with the highlighter end, I just add a little dab here and there for a bright, youthful glow!

oh, and blush, mascara, lipgloss, eyeliner............. :)


You're up on my facebook now, too!

Kendall and Luke said...

Let's see...my must have make up item would have to be concealer. Right now, i'm a mama to a precious 7 week old and goodness me, those dark circles under my eyes from sleepless nights are in desperate need of some coverage!

Jennifer said...

I rarely wear makeup on a daily basis (although i am working on it), but I do manage to throw on a little lipstick every day so I don't look totally washed out.

Courtney M said...

I love mascara but I never leave the house without lip balm!

Kendall and Luke said...

Oh, and I also posted a link to your blog on my own!

Amber said...

I MUST HAVE Mascara! And, now I think I MUST WIN this giveaway! I've always wanted to try Sephora products. Here's my chance!

Kendall and Luke said...

and of course, you are now posted on facebook!

I cannot live without my Erase Paste. Best concealer EVER.

Katy said...

I recently have an unhealthy attachment to eyeliner. I know, weird.

Chrissi said...

My must have items are concealer (currently using Mary Kay, but I'm contemplating a switch to Benefit) and mascara (Mac Opulash is the best!).

Katie said...

Lipstick. Even if I have on not a stitch of makeup...I've gotta have lipstick!

Amanda said...

I have to have earrings!

fishandchipsandsalsa.com said...

Clinique No more redness powder! And red lipstick!

ourmarriageadventure.com said...

Without a doubt it is my L'Oreal Paris True Match super-blendable make-up. That plus a touch of light blush and I'm ready to handle the world.

Maureen said...

I honestly don't have a "must have" makeup product, but today I could use some chapstick. As you can see, I need to accessorize a little more...

Lizzie :) said...

Foundation, Bronzer, Mascara, MAC lipstick.

Lancome Definicils Mascara and Buxom Lip Polish...love them! :)

Joanne said...

Mascara and lip gloss! Never leave home without them both!

P.S. Love your blog!

Leslie said...

I adore my Bare Minerals foundation. I have pretty splotchy, rosy skin, so this really helps even me out. Sometimes I wear that alone with a little bit of blush for a "no makeup" make up look.

Serenity said...

My eyes are sensitive so my must have is my Arbonne Mascara. It is completely chemical free so no toxic fumes to make my eyes water and run all day.

Leslie said...

Just Facebooked it! Would you believe I have NEVER won a blog giveaway? Maybe today is my day!

Kendall said...

My must have is channel glossimer lipgloss. It's amazing!

Cheryl E. said...

My must have is DiorSHOW. LOVE IT!!

Flannery said...

I have a lot of products that I love. One is Sue Devitt Camouflage Concealer in "Bermuda Triangle." This little undereye concealer is a miracle-worker. I have fair skin and my dark circles always seem to have been there but... oh boy, when I'm tired? They are 100x worse. This magical makeup covers them up without looking covered-up. :)

Jennifer said...

Under-eye concealer! There's one by Estee Lauder that I love, but seriously - cover girl works in a pinch. It used to be mascara, but two babies later I need to cover those dark circles.

Lauren Stewart said...

mineral powder is my must have!

Mandy said...

Concealed and aquaphor for my lips!!
Mandykirk@hotmail.com

Colie said...

I have an obsession right now with gray eyeshadow. It matches EVERYTHING and makes my green eyes pop. Burt's Bees is a constant must though, I'm wearing it right now in my pajamas :)

Autumn said...

Mascara and my bare essentials powder, I rarely go a day without them.

Erin said...

Fun giveaway! I must have concealer and mascara. I'm not much of a lipstick girl (my lips are giant, and I feel like wearing much color makes me look like I've been punched in the mouth!), but I thought I'd enter anyway and see if there is something out there for the fat-lipped girls! ;)

Becca said...

My must haves are mascara and black eyeliner!

Kourtney said...

I have to have mascara. I look like a lashless rabbit without it.

Dani said...

I am detoxing my face right now so the only make up I am wearing is eye liner and mascara oh and homemade lip balm its so good.

Stacey said...

I love face primer. I have tried all different kinds & my favorite right now is Mary Kay. It fills in all your facial imperfections & creates a perfect foundation for your makeup

I love reading all these makeup posts

Him and Her said...

Mineral powder makeup! Takes my blotchy skin from heinous to presentable in a few swipes... tightly followed by mascara!

Erin said...

I Facebooked you!

Becky (So Very Blessed) said...

Honestly, the only "makeup" I currently use is Burt's Bees, but I'm determined to change that! I'd like to "girly-up" for my husband and these are the just the things that could help me do that!

Rebecca said...

Concealer for those dark circles!

Amber said...

A little tinted moisturizer, powder and blush is my "must haves". I like to play around and test different kinds of lipstick and lip gloss when I have the chance though!

Jenny said...

I LOVE my tarte mascara! It's does amazing things to my eyelashes but without the clumpiness of other mascaras. It's definitely my splurge when it comes to makeup.

MJ said...

Strawberry chapstick and foundation! =]

I absolutely must have BLUSH! Lately it's been Smashbox.

Life with the Websters! said...

I agree with you! Mascara and lip gloss (or, at the least chap stick) are an everyday must have! I really like the tinted glosses they sell at bath and body works. It has a minty fresh flavor and I adore it!

bride4life said...

must have is moisturizer.

The Mommy said...

My MUST is SOMETHING on my lips. Usually a good gloss, but a balm will do around the house.

Lynn said...

I'm a mascara girl all the way. But along with mascara comes the eyelash curler... gotta do it! My Mom bought me the curler as a joke in my teen years for a birthday present - however I thought it was for real and became addict!
*Lynn*

The older I get, the more I come to rely on mascara. And blush, which surprised me. :)

Maria said...

*Sqeeeeeeeee* I love Sephora so much! And I absolutely cannot live without DiorShow mascara - nothing else compares. Being fair-skinned with auburn hair means I have no lashes unless I coat them well with this mascara - I refuse to leave my house without it.

Thank you so much for this fab giveaway!

Kristen said...

My must have makeup product is definitely Bare Minerals Foundation. I don't need a whole lot of coverage, so it's just a perfect, light foundation for my skin.

Meredith said...

Mascara! You can't see my eyes without it!

Shala said...

For me it's Cover Girl Lash Blast Mascara. I am not a fan of any other Cover Girl product but this baby plumps them up big time. My other must have is more pro-active. I use Burt's Bees on my lips every night.

Whitney said...

Volume Blast mascara is a must. And I don't know if this counts as makeup, but I always, always wear regular old Chapstick. It makes my lips smooth and healthy, and it has SPF!
