I can always trust Philosophy to have cute and irresistible things for fall and Halloween. Picked up this set the second I saw it in stock on Sephora.com!
It's called Trick Or Treat, and this year's version contains Lip Shines in Crispy Marshmallow Bars and Caramel Apple.
The Lip Shine glosses: Crispy Marshmallow Bars (sheer milky ivory with light shimmer) and Caramel Apple (sheer dark red with shimmer).
Like all Philosophy Lip Shines, these are very sheer and don't add much in the way of color or shimmer to the lips. Only a faint tint on the red, and only a whisper of shimmer on the white.
The Crispy Marshmallow Bars is my favorite of the two. It smells so good! It's oddly realistic. It smells just like one of these:
No joke. The first thing you smell is butter, but then you start to smell that creamy, overly sweet corn syrup marshmallow scent, just like the real thing. You even get the slightly savory grain scent of the Rice Krispies to balance the warm butter and hyper-sweet marshmallow.
The Caramel Apple one is okay, but nowhere near as realistic and delicious as the Crispy Marshmallow Bars.
They both have a sweet taste with a bit of the scent carrying over as flavor, so they're really nice to wear. The scents are both medium intensity, not too strong but not so faint that you can't smell them.
They have a somewhat sticky texture, true to standard Philosophy Lip Shine formula. Average wear time.
I'd totally buy the Crispy Marshmallow Bars one again (and now I want the 3-in-1 to go with it!) but I'm probably going to skip the Caramel Apple next year.
The duo gives you a little bit of a discount; Philosophy Lip Shines are usually $10 each, but this set is only $18 for both glosses.
I got mine from Sephora!
