The new EOS A Ray of Holiday Sunshine Lip Balm Set is inspired by fashion designer Rachel Roy and contains three new flavors of EOS Lip Sphere Lip Balm with a friendly price tag of $9.99. It’s a cute budget pick up for Secret Santas, stocking stuffers, or if you’re a lover of the EOS Lip Balm formula I’m sure you’ll want this set.
The set includes Indian Summer, Orange Blossom, and Aloha Hawaii Strawberry which are three brand new, limited edition flavors (although they are so tasty I don’t see them going away for good! I imagine EOS will relaunch them at some point).
I purchased the EOS Rachel Roy A Ray of Holiday Sunshine Lip Balm Set at Ulta.com but haven’t yet seen it in stores! I hear reports that is popping up at Walgreens so you might wish to check there for a purchase if you aren’t interested in buying it online.
The lip spheres are housed in a circular cardboard container and pretty much have a Summer-y vibe. That’s a little unexpected as it is a Holiday set but I’m not complaining I like the colorful shades of orange, coral, and red! Some people love the EOS Lip Sphere formula, some not so much as it isn’t hydrating enough from what I hear from readers. Personally I like them. I like the shape, I like the cute design, and I like the lightly balmy, flavorful formula. These smell positively gorgeous and have a very nice flavor! If you’re sensitive you might want to avoid but if you don’t mind flavored lip balm I’m sure you’ll find these as tasty as I did.
Indian Summer is a citrus-y pink grapefruit. This is slightly tart, slightly bitter, and has a little sweetness to it! It’s a very true grapefruit flavor! Orange Blossom is probably one of my favorites from the set. Unlike the name there isn’t anything floral about it! It’s a very sweet orange-y flavor! And Aloha Hawaii Strawberry is a nice light strawberry flavor! All three have a lightly balmy texture they protect lips and give them a nice soft finish as the balm wears away. They aren’t super moisturizing but they are great for those who bite their lips a lot or need a little something balmy to keep dry, flakiness at bay!
Overall, I loved the set. I think it’s a perfect stocking stuffer, little inexpensive gift, or of course, a perfect gift for yourself!
