This adorable holiday gift set features miniatures of 4 Bobbi Brown Tube Tints (otherwise known as lip gloss) in shades that were created expressly for this set: Champagne Glitter (golden beige), Rosy (a natural medium pink), Baby Pink Glitter (pale pink) and Burnt Sugar Shimmer (a medium brown). Each of the lip glosses is slightly scented, and comes in Bobbi Brown's signature capped tube with an angled squeeze-out applicator that is positively addictive to use.

You won't mind that the Tube Tints don't last very long because it's so much fun to put them on. I personally like my lip product to have more pigment than these do-- they are extremely sheer, but that makes them perfect for people who prefer the natural look. It may bother you that the gloss is slightly sticky, but that is true of most lip glosses. The range of colors is nice, with three of them being very useful (I found the Baby Pink to be suitable only for little girls). Two of the colors (Rosy and Burnt Sugar) come with SPF 15, making them perfect for outdoor activities where you don't want to wear a lot of makeup, such as skiing in winter or going to the beach in summer. Pay no attention to the "glitter" in the color names-- those shades are just slightly more shimmery than the others, but don't feature large chunks of glitter. I would have liked these to feature more shine, however, as if I'm going to wear lip gloss, shine is the primary reason.

For the price, there is a generous amount of product in the set, especially compared to other Bobbi Brown holiday gift sets, which can run very high. This gift is a great stocking stuffer for someone who likes cosmetics but doesn't want a heavy makeup look. It would also make a good Secret Santa gift for someone you don't know very well, as most women would find at least one color in here that they would use. The packaging (4 mini tubes inside a small box) also makes it easy to split the set up and give the colors that you won't use away, which can't be done with a palette.
