Of course, if you would rather gift yourself with this collection, who am I to argue? At just $26, it’s an affordable present to stuff into your stocking without feeling any quilt.

These glosses give a super sheer hint of color, and true to most Benefit products are flattering to practically any skin skin tone. These are the perfect tubes to stash in a purse or pocket for on the go color – no mirror required.

Beyond the cute little tubes (everything seems better in mini size!), the packaging bonuses include a slant tip applicator for easy glossing and a soft, squeezable shell that allows you to dispense the perfect dollop of color. Each gloss is softly scented with sweet, slightly tangy, fruit punch-like scent that I enjoy – but it fades fairly quickly for the fragrance adverse.

But it’s the formula of the Ultra Plush High Flyin’ Glosses  Benefit Holiday 2012   High Flyin Glosses Review that put me over the moon. These glosses glide on like a dream; super smooth, almost creamy in feel, without a hint of stickiness. They’re also moisturizing on my lips, leaving them soft and supple and not in desperate need of a balm after a few hours of wear.

I love each and every one of these shades, but my faves are the punchy Coralista (finally, a coral I can wear!) and the dusty rose shimmer of Sugarbomb. For once in my life I’m going to reach the end of a tube of gloss – and then I plan on running out and picking these two up in their full size versions.

Pros:
Smooth, non-sticky formula
Sheer, flattering colors
Adorable packaging
Nicely priced and a great way to try all six Ultra Plush Gloss hues

Cons:
You’ll have a hard time gifting this and will wind up keeping it for yourself!
Seriously, I have no cons with this set

    I can’t think of any gloss-lover who wouldn’t go insane over this gift set, @tyna ! Benefit’s glosses are really nice, and I can’t imagine the happiness of receiving all of these at once. The mini-sized tubes are so cute, and handy, too. Perfect gift!

    Benefit is killin’ it in the gift set field! They do a great job of creating smart little sets to expose people to a variety of their products and this one looks perfect! They have great lipglosses and I can also attest to the Coralista. That is one fun lipgloss with a nice spark of color!
