I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about this product. Something I could put on my lips AND cheeks? And I got Cobbler Red, the brightest in the set. I like bright on my lips, but I was afraid it would be a mess on my cheeks (like a straight finger line where I tried to apply). I was wrong.
It's not terribly moisturizing on the lips, but if it was, your cheeks would be greasy, so I like that. It stains them fairly well. And, it's very forgiving on the cheek. After I dotted it on, I was able to blend it out with my finger as much as I needed to create just a rosy glow.
My favorite thing about the sample was the packaging. Not just that it was cute, but that it's small and flat. I have a wallet that sometimes I carry without a purse, and it has no room for anything with hardly any depth to it (or hardly any room to spare at all), so a lipstick is out, as would most blushes be. This fits perfectly. I wish they sold them in individual colors (if they do, I haven't seen it), and I haven't seen the packaging on the full size, so it may be a perk that only the sample gives...but it's wonderful. I never want to be without this product in my wallet!
