OVERALL, Little Darlings is less about offering innovative and brand-spanking-new shades as it is about great gifts to give and receive for less. Each gloss set contains five mini-sized versions of popular past and current lipglasses/lustreglasses. The case is cute, and the cover can later be used to hold glosses or brushes, too! Plus, the pigment sets are great way to collect pigments without spending a fortune–whether you’re new or experienced when it comes to MAC.

Little Darlings: 5 Coral Lipglass/Lustreglass
Underage (permanent) is a peachy nude with a little pink in it (from what I can tell), and it doesn’t have a shimmer finish like the other four of the glosses in the set. Ola Mango! (repromote) is a fun orange-peach color, which makes it stand out from the permanent line. Pink Grapefruit (repromote) is one of my favorite coral-reds with orange-gold shimmer, though it is similar to Lychee Luxe. Wonderstruck is shimmery pink confection, while Budding is a deeper, brighter pink with less noticeable shimmer.
Little Darlings: 5 Pink Lipglass/Lustreglass
Fleur Delight is an iridescent opal-white color with shimmer; it is a pretty sheer color, which would be nice layered over raspberry/berry-colored lipsticks. Magnetique (repromote) is one of my favorite fuchsia-berry colors. It has a nice level of purplish shimmer to it. Flashmode is a shimmery muted hot pink with subtle shimmer. Little VI is a little darker, more of a mauve-berry color with a lot of shimmer. Song and Dance is almost an opaque, subdued dirty pink with no real shimmer.
Little Darlings: 5 Neutral Lipglass/Lustreglass
C-Thru is a semi-opaque nude beige with little shimmer, and it is part of the permanent line. Mouthwatering is a pinker nude with more noticeable shimmer in it; this has come out in the past. Languish is a rich, deep brown with gold shimmer in it. Love Nectar is a peach-pink, almost a watermelon meets peach color. Beaux is a slightly pink brown with subtle multi-colored shimmer.
Little Darlings: 5 Warm Pigments/Glitter
Gold Dusk is one of my favorite pigments ever (the only pigment I ever got a back-up of!). It’s a light gold color, which makes an excellent base, but also perfect for highlighting. Gold Mode is a brownish-gold with a metallic finish. Melon (permanent) is a peachy-gold kind of color; it’s very much what you’d think of with a name like “Melon.” Gold Stroke is a burgundy-brown color almost; it’s rich and metallic in its finish. Reflects Antique Gold is a fun shade of micro-fine glitter with lots of shimmer and shine.
Little Darlings: 5 Cool Pigments/Glitter
Frost (permanent) is an incredibly frosty/shimmering silver-white color. Quietly (repromote) is a stunning shade of lavender–lighter than Violet. Pinked Mauve (repromote) is a nice shade of dark pink with a little mauve/purple to it. Teal (permanent) is one of my favorite pigment shades, because it is so pigmented and exactly as it is named–teal. Reflects Blackened Red is a blackish-brownish glitter with a red cast to it.
Little Darlings: 5 Softsparkle/Eye Pencil
Peacocked is a teal shade with a greenish cast to it. Mint & Olive is a cross between a yellowed gold with green-gold shimmer. Fab Orchid is an intense shade of deep purple. Chocolight is a warm brown with coppery-gold shimmer in it. Black Funk is an intense black color.
