|Marc Jacobs The Sofia - Five Piece Petites Le Marc Lip Crème Collection ($45) at Sephora|
One of the many holiday makeup sets to pop up this time of the year is the Marc Jacobs The Sofia Le Marc Lip Creme Collection - a set of 5 petite-sized lipsticks with colors ranging from soft peony to deep dark berry. Marc Jacobs lipsticks are generally quite amazing in the formula and color range, so to snag 5 of these in travel-friendly sizes and a pretty clutch to house them all is a must-have in my opinion. Individually, the lipsticks are definitely small - similar to what you would get as a deluxe sample in GWPs or Sephora point perks, but I rarely use up a regular-size tube of lipstick, so for me these are perfect sizes to have, and I get a bunch of different colors to try. Scroll on for more photos and swatches.

Infamous - Soft peony, So Sofia - Electric watermelon, Dashing - very cherry
Blow - dark berry velvet, Boy Gorgeous - berry rouge
The colors included in this set are very holiday/fall-winter appropriate, with 3 of the colors falling in the darker red-berry category. They aren't colors I would use every day, but that's what makes the petite size perfect for me. The lipstick formula feels soft and smooth - very lip friendly and almost weightless - and colors are vibrant and rich. I wish more brands came out with these smaller-sized products (while maintaining the quality, of course). Overall, I think this would make a nice pick if you are looking to revamp your lipstick wardbrobe and/or as a holiday gift. I amn't sure if this would last until the next Sephora sale, but that would be an awesome pick if it's on discount!
