The colors are gorgeous. Two are deeper bold colors -
Bangle has a deep wine hue and Pride is a red with a slightly pink undertone. Gem is a pink bordering on nude color that is kind of boring on its own, but transforms when you add the gloss. Quest and Trinket - my 2 new go-to lippies!! Trinket is a deep pink with an undertone of purple, almost mulberry. Quest is also pink but leans toward orange, but not a coral, more of a 'hint of fall' orange.
All of the colors have some shimmer on their own, Which is amped up if you add the gloss. I would wear all of the colors except Gem, as just lipstick or just gloss, and I would wear all of them together as well. They are creamy, super smooth on the lips, and really make my lips feel soft. They wear well, but they do transfer, so a touch up after coffee or lunch is needed.
I'm just amazed that in a set of 5 colors, I love and would wear all of them, and have found 2 colors that hit the mark for wear anytime, anywhere!
For reference, I have brown hair, brown eyes and have light skin with an olive undertone.
The shades are good for me (palest Amazonian clay foundation), 2 are very similar however & the only question mark is with the darkest berry shade, it's a deep burgundy - i need to experiment more with it.
My main gripe is the size, same as other reviewers. I can't decide whether to kick myself for not double checking or to be cross with tarte for not making size crystal clear. The lipstick ends have 1.5g - less than 50% size of the original, and there is 1ml on each gloss end. 1ml !! (50% of original). I echo someone else's review mentioning the gloss ends look half empty - they do - but thats because there's only 1ml swimming in there.
The sizes are hidden on the mobile site under the ingredients section and then below the 'powered by' section. It should be front and centre. I wasnt expecting full size, but not mini mini's. Thankfully I had a 15% off code - had I paid full price I'd be even more miffed.
If I was not an international customer I would have returned the set, but I'm keeping because of the return postage costs.
Especially considering that last year, for the same $ you received 0.12 oz x 4 shades with the holiday limited edition, and here you're receiving .0529 x 5 shades (lipstick oz, not including gloss), that's a pretty hefty decrease from last year's offering.
Again, these are really attractive, but if you fall in love with one of these limited edition shades, it'll be a short lived affair.
