Sephora Birthday Gift 2024 | Kosas Lip and Brow Set In Unbuttoned with Swatches

Every year, Sephora offers a selection of deluxe samples that you can get for free during your birthday month! You can select one item per year and you must be a Beauty Insider which is free to sign up.

I shared my pick this year of the Kosas Set on my Insta and wanted to share here, too. 

This year, there are four choices:
  • Kosas Lip and Brow set
  • Moroccan oil Hair set
  • Youth To The People skincare set
  • 250 points
  • Charlotte Tilbury set for VIB and up
I found it a tough choice this year. I would have chosen the Charlotte Tilbury gift but you have to be a Sephora VIB or above, which I am not. And, since I already have the Moroccan Oil hair oil and I didn't have high hopes for their shampoo and conditioner, and the fact that I already have so much skincare, I decided on the Kosas Set. I looked for swatches online of the Kosas Lip Oil in Unbuttoned but could not find one, so I figured I'd put it "out there" for others to see.


Lip & Brow Birthday Set

- Wet Lip Oil Plumping Treatment Gloss in shade Unbuttoned (Soft Warm Blush): A hybrid lip treatment and gloss packed with hyaluronic acid and peptides to hydrate and visibly plump, without the sting, in a bestselling, soft, warm blush shade. 0.06 oz / 2 mL

- Air Brow Clear + Clean Lifting Treatment Eyebrow Gel with Lamination Effect: A clear brow gel boosted by hair-care actives that lifts and sets brows in place while supporting fuller, healthier-looking brows. 0.06 oz / 1.77 g

Kosas Lip Oil in Unbuttoned and Kosas Air Brow in clear

The Kosas Lip Oil is what I was most interested in. The shade Unbuttoned is described as a Warm Blush Shade. I find it more peachy and would describe it as a warm nude shade.

The Lip Oil comes with a typical doe foot applicator in a tube typical for a lipgloss. I found it very easy to apply and the colour is quite sheer but adds a hint of colour to my pale lips. It's not sticky nor too oily, so it doesn't slip around on my lips. It adds a hint of colour plus hydration to my lips for a healthy and youthful look. The nude shade goes with any look and should suit many skin tones, although will probably look clear on more pigmented and darker lips. The lasting time is average, but even after the colour wears off, my lips still feel more hydrated than before the application.

The clear Brow Gel works well to groom my wild brows and hold them in place. It dries down but doesn't flake off. It claims to have a lamination effect which I have not noticed. In general, I prefer a tinted brow gel but clear ones are great to have on hand for no makeup days as I still like my brows to appear groomed.

All in all, I am happy with my choice this year of the Kosas Lip and Brow Set.

Note that offerings in the USA may be different than the ones here in Canada.

You can get the free Birthday gift on but you must spend a minimum of $25 to get it online. If you pick up your free gift in a Sephora store, no purchase is necessary.
