Lipstick Queen Five Minutes of Fame Gloss Sets

While shopping for secret santa goodies, I came upon these gloss sets from Lipstick Queen. Each set includes 5 colors from their 15 minutes of Fame Pop Art Gloss collection. The colors are labeled from 1 minute to 15 minutes and go from pink/nude shades to a deep berry/red shades. The Five Minutes of Fame Gloss Sets come in 2 variations-The Nudes and The Berries.

The Nudes (from L to R) contain Minutes #1 (pale pink), #12 (medium berry pink), #3 (bright medium pink) , #4 (nude pink), and #13 (bright berry).



The glosses come with a brush applicator. It was kind of annoying that they brushes don't seem to be even between the different shades so some glosses had a longer/thinner brush tip than others.


The glosses wear well. They have almost a gel consistency and aren't sticky at all.


The Berries set (From L to R) contain Minutes #5 (sheer nude), #2 (light pink), #14(berry red), #11(violet) and #15(brick red).

Each of these "mini" glosses contain 0.04 fl oz of product while I thin the "full size" is 0.06 fl oz, so these sets are quite a good deal considering they are priced at $28 while individual pop art glosses are $16.5o. I bought these sets from Space NK. I've seen them at both the Bloomingdale installations and the free standing stores. On the website, they only have the Berries set listed.
