3 Scoops O' Sexy
Packaging:
This lovely gift set includes three separate mini sets packaged in lovely gift ready boxes. Each of the three sets includes a full-sized tinted balm and a mini lip/cheek tint (4ml). There is a Posietint duo, a Benetint duo, and a Lollitint duo.
The balms have a plastic bullet coated with a reflective metallic layer and they are all super adorable. The mini tints have a plastic bottle with a brush applicator on the underside of the lid.

Formulation & Pigmentation:
The Posietint (full review here) and Posie Balm have a soft pink hue. The tint has a viscous milky formulation and stains very well; the balm, on the other hand, is very sheer but it's nice and buttery. Lollitint (reviewed here) and Lolli Balm (full review here) are both orchid colored. The tint has the same milky texture as the Posietint and the balm is quite sheer as well. The Benetint (full review here) and Bene Balm have the classic benefit rosy red shade. The tint has a watery formulation and the balm is sheer but much more pigmented than the other two.

Overall:
The value of this set is phenomenal as each balm is $22 individually. I love the fact that each set is separately packaged so you can gift them to three different people (or just keep all three for yourself)!

Availability:
Benefit is available online and in stores at Sephora.
