Price: $25.00 (5 x 0.11 oz)
Overall Grade: A-
I saw this on the Sephora site sometime last week and immediately fell in love so to my shopping cart it went. It's honestly the best thing I could've spent my gift card on. Great quality and amazing quantity for the price -you can't beat that!
IngredientsThe Product: Although these 0.11 oz glosses are smaller than LORAC's other glosses (0.17 oz), I'd still consider these to be full size as tons of other brand glosses have glosses that are smaller and at a higher price. The $25 price tag for this set is an amazing bargain considering you're getting 5 glosses for $25 (only $5 each!)
The glosses are all very moisturizing, non-sticky, fairly long wearing (about 4 hours), pigmented, non gritty, and apply smoothly -basically all the qualities I look for in a good gloss. The only downsides are:
- The glosses tend to "sit" on the lips for about 20-30 minutes before fully "sinking in."
- The smell. I'm not too fond of the sweet scent (but on the upside, there's no taste.)

The Color: I'm loving the whole tie dye idea but just so you know, the pattern doesn't stay forever. Once you use it more/mix it up a bit, it becomes a solid color. I've been very careful as to not mix it up because I love the tie dye!
- Berry Blender- Vampy plum raspberry with silver shimmer
- Flaming Fix- Bright cherry red with golden shimmer
- In The Mix- Warm nude with silver shimmer
- Shocking Twist- Bright lilac pink with silver shimmer
- Social Mixer- Natural petal pink with minor silver shimmer

Overall: This set is a must buy. I highly recommend getting it if you don't own a lot of lip glosses and want more variety or if you just really love lip gloss in general. The quality is there and it's an excellent value for what you're getting. At $25, the glosses come out to be just $5 each.
Helpful Hint: Today is Sephora's last day of their Friends & Family Sale so if you order the set right now, you will only pay $20 for the set -that's $4 a tube! (Less than most drugstore lip glosses.) Use the code FF2010 to join in on this deal -plus you'll get 3 free samples and free shipping (if you spend $50 or more.)
