i watched a youtube channel reviewing the lip set and its not melted in berry but peony shade. from the looks of the tube looks like peony too. but i might wrong !

I was on the website last night and the Superstars kit caught my attention but not sure I need it for $90 CAD. I do like that they brought out more and different kits though.

I picked up the Lip Set and the Superstars Set in stores last week and I’m in love.

Heads up though, the description for the lip set is wrong.
The set includes the Too Faced Melted lipstick in Peony (not Berry) and the Urban Decay product is the Revolution Lipstick in Streak and is full sized (not the deluxe size gloss).

Totally worth checking these out 🙂

I really, really want to get the Give Me More Lip set. I got it for my sister last year but this year it has a lot of brands or formulations I’ve been wanting to try but haven’t yet so it’s the perfect set for me right now. Hopefully I can rally up the cash (though it’s a REALLY good deal).

The Too Faced in the photo doesn’t look like it is Berry. It says it is on the Sephora site as well so do you think the photo or the description is wrong?

I looked at the questions on the Sephora page and someone said it is actually Berry you get despite the photo. Also the Urban Decay might be the wrong shade in the photo as well.

Ohh, I love these sets! I so want the Give Me Some More Lip set! I also first noticed the Superstar. But, then realized I already have many of the items and for $75, I could probably get the few things I want to try in a full size or keep the things I like and add the things I don’t like to the mini lipsticks I took from the MJB lip set to a little gift set for a niece or my sister. I’m wondering if I’m the only one thinking this one is a little high on the price tag? The Soko to Tokyo is on my radar too, but, I have tried two of the items, so it is somewhat wasteful. But, again I know people who like them. The way they hype up the Extend your Style kit makes me want it. But, I don’t need it. I hardly ever use dry shampoo and I have one I love when I do. OMG..I need help! lol!

No, they aren’t full size at all. The MUFE primer (1 oz vs .16), Smashbox water (1 oz vs 3.9 oz), tarte crayon (0.06 vs .09), BeneFit mascara (.1 vs .3 oz), and Nars shadow (0.05 vs 0.26) are all much smaller than full size. It seems nice but I don’t feel like it’s worth the price other than the fact you get a beautyblender.

I always love these Sephora sets! I have enough lipstick to last me a lifetime, so I skipped the lippie set but grabbed the skincare set. I’ve always wanted to try more Asian brands and that sample of SK II is worth about $40 by itself, so it’s a great deal.

Wow the Give Me More Lip set is pretty amazing this time! I’ve never purchased one because they tend to include shades I wouldn’t wear much (light nudes, pinks) but it looks more varied this time around. And the prices seems really good considering you’re getting several full sizes!

I’m so glad the superstar collection doesn’t include any face makeup this time around! The past few times they’ve done similar favorites sets, they have included a tinted moisturizer or bb cream, which isn’t going to match everyone. I might have to save my pennies for Superstars & Give Me Some Lip, such a good value!

Ho. Ly. CRAP!

That lip set will be mine – I get paid tomorrow. I’m buying it!

The next will be that ‘Superstars’ set – that will also be mine. Not getting it tomorrow, but soon….soon….

Oh I really want that give me more lip set! Past years have had more lip glosses which I don’t like but this selection looks good, and a full sized Nars lipstick! I definitely want this.

Hopefully the give me more lips+lash will be instock when its close to my birthday (end of november…. too close towards the holiday) does anybody know how fast they sell out?

I feel that this year Superstars set has a lot of unknown products. It was supposed to include top-sold items, but you can find there items that have just around 50 reviews(loan come liner, mascara highlighter) or have average low rating. Yes, there are superstars, but I feel you can buy full/travel sized versions of them and be in 75$.

They all look sensational – what great value. I am sincerely envious….. Our major department stores here in Melbourne don’t do anything like this at all…. They really should if they want to keep customers happy.

Saw this in my facebook newsfeed today and Just ordered it. Im excited 🙂 Thanks Temptalia! <3

*There is a mistake with the Urban Decay lipgloss in streak. It's a lipstick and is full size:)

The only one that really tempts me is the cologne set, but I’ve already found my favorite scent, so it’d be a waste, I think. I am curious about the Tarte contout brush, though.

The Give Me More Lip needs two corrections (I already notified Sephora). The Urban Decay in Streak is a full-sized lipstick, not a deluxe gloss. The Too Faced Melted is another Peony, not Berry.

Whomever wrote the descriptions for the Superstars set really missed a lot of typos. As already mentioned the urban decay lipstick and too faced melted, but the size for the lancome liner is a full size at 0.042oz not 0.42oz.
Besides that, it looks like a good set and there are no coloured complexion products this year! Just wish they didn’t have so many doubles of things (liner, eyeshadow, mascara, primer).

I love this set, I got to try so many brands I’ve never tried before 🙂 only downside, a lot of pink shades lol. Not a fan of pink on myself but these I will try 🙂

I might get the lip set; that has some great stuff in it, that I can actually wear! So often the multi-sets are largely nude shades.

Or full of stuff I’d definitely be allergic to, which covers everything else here…

For anyone wanting to buy the “Give Me More Lip” set…I’m very happy with the set…but I was expecting two different products that what I received. On the product description on the Sephora website it states that the set contains the following: a Too Faced Melted Deluxe Size in MELTED BERRY. However the set actually contains MELTED PEONY, much to my dismay. I already have Melted Peony and don’t care much for it but was really looking forward to trying Melted Berry. The second difference is that on the website description of the product, it states that an Urban Decay deluxe size GLOSS in Streak is what is included. Instead, the set contains a FULL SIZE LIPSTICK in Streak. For me, that is actually better! I thought anybody else buying based on the website productd description should be informed as to what the set really contains. I am very sad about not getting Melted Berry and instead getting another Melted Peony. Otherwise I am happy. The set actuallyc contains FOUR full size products, not THREE! The full sizes are Ciate, Urban Decay, Smashbox, and NARS.

The lip set is really tempting because I’d wear most of those colors, but there’s a couple of things in there that I know I wouldn’t like, like the Buxom products (I hate the extreme icy-cold feeling they give) and the Too Faced Melted. Plus, I probably have waaay too many lip products as it is that don’t get used and that set would definitely not help me use what I have. 😛

Campos, Read where it says you also get a certificate to buy a full size Perfume or Cologne. Pick one of the samples you like and pick up a full size version free of charge at Sephora. This one I’ll get for myself.
