For Holiday 2015, Too Faced has a fun new set called the Melted Kisses & Sweet Cheeks Gift Set ($45 CAD). With three gift-ready mini Melted Lipstick and mini Love Flush Blush duos, you can give the sets to three different friends or keep them all for yourself.

Packaging:
The Melted Kisses & Sweet Cheeks Set comes in a gorgeous gold gift box. Inside are three individual gift boxes (similar to last year's gift set from Benefit), each holding a mini Love Flush Blush and a deluxe mini Melted Liquid Lipstick.

The blush minis are 2g each and they come in a very simple plastic palette. I wish the packaging was similar to the original full-sized Love Flush Blushes but I feel that the quality and design of the mini compacts is a tad inferior. The deluxe 5ml Melted Liquid Lipsticks are exact mini replicas of the originals, fuzzy squeeze-applicator included.

Formulation:
The set is divided into three complementary lip and cheek duos. One is nude/peach themed, one is pink themed, and the last is plum themed.

Love Flush Blush in "Justify My Love": This is a soft baby pink filled with some subtle golden sparkles. The pigmentation is decent and the texture is quite soft and lovely.
Melted Lipstick in "Peony": This is a warm light pink. The pigmentation is really nice and the formulation is smooth and hydrating. The Melted Lipsticks don't quite set so they are quite transfer-prone. However, they do leave behind a soft stain.

Love Flush Blush in "Love Hangover": A gorgeous peach coral, Love Hangover swatches a lot pinker than it looks in the pan. There are some gorgeous golden shimmers but they are very subtle. The pigmentation is really nice and the texture is creamy and soft.
Melted Lipstick in "Nude": This is a really warm nude. The coverage is really nice but I'm not sure how flattering the color is on most skin tones.

Love Flush Blush in "Your Love is King": This is a lovely matte plum. The formulation is surprisingly sheer (although buildable) and the formulation is a tad "hard", not as soft and powdery as the other two shades.
Melted Lipstick in "Fig": My favorite thing out of the set, Fig is a gorgeous mauve-y purple liquid lipstick with an amazing pigmentation. The coverage is incredible and the color is surprisingly flattering.

Overall:
This is a really fun set whether you are looking to try out a lot of different lip and cheek colors or are looking for stocking stuffers for makeup lovers. I love the deluxe mini Melted Lipsticks but the packaging of the blushes is a tad childish and garish.
