These were a bit of an impulse buy. Sephora and Ulta had a set of them (5) for $29.99, but I heard they were sold out. I was in Ulta a couple of weeks ago, and they had them so I snagged one. They are a limited edition set (the ones I bought), however you can order them in other colors for $24.00 a piece. They are actually referred to as "lip treatments", and come in lusters and tints. The colors in the box set are 3 lusters in Dazzled (pearly coral pink luster), Flashy (bright iridescent fuchsia luster), Glitzy (antique pink luster) and 2 tints in Perky (soft carnation pink tint) and Swank (light cherry tint). They glide on really smoothly and are fairly shiney, but not a ton of pigment (IMO). They are not sticky, so that's a plus for those of you who don't like that feeling. They have a hint of peppermint and contain no parabens, synthetic fragrances or phthalates. Basically they feel like a lip balm with some color and shine. A couple of them are a tad on the glittery side. They don't need sharpening, they twist up from the bottom. I'm really glad I purchased this set, but I don't think I would buy them separately. I gave 2 of them to my daughter so I only have 3 to show.
