Just in time for Valentine's Day...

What a day it's been! I waiting hours for someone to come take a look at our poor bumpy, sinking mattress, had to book it to work, took my sister to Target, and went to Zumba so when i finally opened my front door and saw a Sephora box, I was overjoyed.

Let's start at the beginning, shall we? Well...while I was browsing the Sephora website fulfilling my guilty pleasure of online shopping as I often to, I came across this Stila love themed gift pack. The set comes with a Blush (compact) called Make Me Blush and two Stila Lip Glazes. I also had a coupon code to get a free deluxe sample of Lancome Bi-Facil Makeup Remover and Lancome Hypnose Drama mascara which I've been dying to try so I couldn't not order! ;)

The lip glazes are basically an extra in this set, seeing how it is only $20 and comes with a full sized limited edition blush.

I'm going to try hard not to review this product just yet, as I just opened it about two hours ago! Warning, this post is photo-heavy!

Pinks and golds and corals-Oh My!
The gold color on top of the "conversation hearts" is simply an over spray.
Bye-Bye gold! :(
First Swipe

First, second and third swipes...just keeps getting better!

The Lip Glazes are .05oz, full size are .08oz. Full size Lip Glazes are $22 a pop!

Kisses is described as a "creamy rose" and I'd say that's pretty accurate. Very wearable.
Nice place for a "made in China" sticker, huh?
Kisses swatched heavily on top and sheered out (but still very pigmented!) underneath.
Hugs is described as a "sparkling red."  Very sparkly, indeed. I think it has a bit of pink tone to it as well.
The names of these two colors should be reversed if you ask me!

This color was so gorgeous I didn't even want to take the swatch off!

Well what can I say? I'm so glad i purchased this set when I did because as of right now it's sold out on I hope they get more in because this is a really unique gift set, in my opinion. It's a great deal for the price and the product. I will be doing another post about the cheek color because I've heard it's a dupe for the coveted Stereo Rose...we shall see!
The only gripe I have about this Make Me Blush Set, or any Stila Lip Glazes, for that matter, is that they are extremely sticky and very expensive for what you actually get. Just .08oz of product will cost you a steep $22. Also, you have to twist the applicator to get the product to start coming out about 40 times, which leaves you wasting most of it because of how fast it comes out of the top with no warning. Stila has never been my favorite brand for lip gloss but with how inexpensive and gorgeous these two colors were, I can deal with the stickey-ness!

Have any of you tried this set out? What do you think?
