I got a sample of the lip lube in the June 2014 box and loved it, so I took the plunge and purchased this sample of 5 colors. I received them today and tried each of them on. Wolfman, which is the pale pink on my light to medium olive skin tone made me look sickly. Fairyblood, the shimmery pink, broke in half when I applied it and was shimmery and probably would work well if mixed with other colors. Lambchop which is a neon fuchsia made me look like a clown but it was entertaining to think of wearing this shade in public. Pinkman, the hot pink is by far my favorite of the five, its fun and flirty and perfect for a night out with friends or a date just a punch of color if you want to have some color stand out in an overall look. Ring of Fire isn't as bad as I thought, with my skin tone it came off a little more orange than red but after a while it suited the tone (or I got used to it). I give a 5/5 on texture and creaminess, 3/5 on product applicator (since the lip color snapped in half on first swipe), 2/5 on colors that fits a general array of skin tones...thus the overall rating of 3/5 stars.
Perhaps I will grow to like and manipulate the colors over time but if one isn't willing to be that creative go with a color you know suits you and pick that one from the full sized version because the lasting color and high pigment is worth the purchase but only in the right color.
