I recieved the Smashbox Art. Love. Colour. Lips set for Christmas as a gift. I hadn't come across the set beforehand but loved the the packaging. The entire Art Love. Colour. range has gorgeous artwork from Yago Hortal which is what first caught my eye. I usually stay away from lip glosses because I'm not a huge fan of how sticky most of them are. These aren't super sticky, and despite being tacky they do feel comfortable on the lips. The limited edition set includes 5 of the best-selling Be Legendary lip glosses in travel sizes - Disco Rose, Orchid, Pout, Superstar and Coraline.

The glosses are quite sheer on the lips despite having some pigment. They are perfect for pairing over lipliners and lipsticks however which is how I prefer to wear glosses. My favourite two shades is Orchid(berry) and Disco Rose(light red). Both of these give a light tint to the lips. Pout is a pale pink, which wouldn't be my favourite lip shade. I don't think pale pinks suit me at all, but over some nude lipstick it adds a nice sheen. Superstar appears clear on the lips, but has glitter which I hate so this is my least favourite. Coraline is a light coral but doesn't add much colour to the lips. Similarly to Pout it looks nice over nude lipsticks and is probably the only one I'd wear without anything underneath it.
The applicator is a long doe-foot that makes it easy to smooth out the gloss. They seem to last some time, and I like how they even out any product that is underneath. All in all for them being lipglosses and me not being the biggest lipgloss wearer I really like them. I've been wearing Orchid and Disco Rose over all my purple and red lipsticks lately.
