It’s the most wonderful timeeeee of the year! 🎶 That’s right, Christmas beauty is out & it is beautiful, my friends! I got my hands on the Smashbox Holidaze Collection, and I am so excited to share it with all of you. This year, Smashbox teamed up with Cali-based artist Jen Stark to create “hypnotic-themed” gift sets, and the packaging is bright & wow-worthy!
I’m going to start off with my favourite part of the Smashbox Holidaze Collection, the Contour & Spotlight Highlighting Palette ($49/Cdn). First of all, this palette is MASSIVE! It features 9 full size pans – 6 highlighters and 3 mattes to contour, bronze and set under eyes. I have really been enjoying the matte undereye powder, it’s the perfect light yellow shade for my concealer, and the bronzer is a really great shade all year long for me. The only problem? I am having trouble picking a highlight every morning when I get ready!! There’s too many to choose from. Lastly, the packaging on this is where you can really take note of Jen’s art, it’s stunning!
Next up is the Be Legendary Liquid Lip Ornament! It’s a beautiful, bright Christmas red with a hint of metallic & a high-gloss shine. This lip is so comfortable to wear, lasts long & I’m seriously obsessed with the colour! It’s exclusive to Shoppers Drugmart and retails for $28/Cdn.
I’m a diehard liquid liner fan, so when this Always On Liner Set ($49/Cdn) arrived, I wanted to see if my mind could be changed! This set contains 4 pencil liners (black, brown, champagne and purple), and Smashbox’s signature Always On Gel Liner. I’ve tried the Gel Liner before, and mine dried out by accident (oops!), so was excited to replenish. These liners are really great. I particularly like them when I’m feeling a little lazy to do a liquid liner wing, but still want to define my eye. The black is my favourite, followed by the brown, but I think the purple goes great with green eyes & everyone loves a sparkly champagne, so I know I’ll get good use out of all of them! This set is exclusive to Shoppers Drugmart.
Lastly, the Photo Finish Travel Primer Trio ($28/Cdn) is a dream come true for your makeup bag! I have been obsessing over the Photo Finish Primerizer, it’s my favourite primer, so a mini is wonderful for travel! The Original Photo Finish Smooth + Blur Primer is a classic. I love the Primer Water too, so I’m happy to have for travel. Plus the packaging on all three is 😍!
All in all, the Smashbox Holidaze Collection is FAB! I love love love the packaging and I am obsessed with the liquid lip & the contour and highlight palette! I think there is a great variety of new products with a mix of classic Smashbox products; there’s something for everyone! Would you pick up any pieces of this collection?
Thank you to Smashbox for sending me this awesome collection!
