Good value, a great gift or way to explore the brand - but I wish I’d just bought the full sizes!
I paid for this, and would probably do this again … but I’m pretty irritated that I did, because two days after I bought it Trestique made it a free gift with order. My order hadn’t even shipped yet. Sigh.
I bought it because I wanted the opportunity to try out some of their products and colors I was less familiar with. So far I’ve liked everything I tried, except one, so I think I got my money’s worth. It comes with two matte lip crayons, and it let me try out the two shades that are on either side of my current fave, Florence Fig. They’re nice colors, although I think the fig shade is better one me. Good consistency, good wear. Because they’re minis, they’re small enough that they’re a bit hard to hold and apply accurately. They’re not refillable and don’t come with the balm (and the balm is awesome, so that’s kind of a bummer).
