You can never have too many lip balms especially when the weather gets cold and dry.  Everybody needs a lip conditioner especially in these drying cold months.  Here's a gift idea for people who are looking to give their loved one an essential winter product that looks pretty as well.

To be honest, the MAC Nocturnal Tastitints Mini Tinted Lip Conditioner Kit is one of my favorites from the MAC holiday collection sets.  The first thing I noticed about the formula of this TastiTints (wouldn't it be cuter if they were named Tastinis?  I misread it and I thought they're called Tastinis.  Too bad it was only in my head) is that it is not as hard to apply as the past Tinted Moisturizers from MAC, like the one from last year's Hey, Sailor! collection.  These new Mini Tinted Lip conditioners glide like a dream on the lips and are not sticky or goopy at all.  They are the perfect product to prep your lips for the application of lip products like lipstick or gloss, or you can definitely wear them on their own.

They actually taste and smell very fruity.  They smell like kiwi or some other fruit to me, but for some reason, there is also a chemical-ish taste to it.  It doesn't bother me, though.  There are four variants, or shall we say, "flavors":

Mintessence is described as a milky white, Sugared Vanilla is a creamy light soft beige, Taste of Paradise is a poppy pink, Dash of Lavender is a mauve sheer tint.


Swatches:

As I said, all in all, I am really liking this set and it's definitely my top fave out of all the gift sets.  This is something I can definitely use every single day - and I can put one in my car, one in my purse, one on my vanity and one in my bathroom- and my lips are taken care of.
