Jocelyn’s Christmas Must-Have #9!

Actually, I’m kind of cheating. I’m picking two different gift sets for my #9 spot. So sue me. They kind of go together – like peanut butter and jelly! Or maybe primer and eye shadow?? Okay, I’m not funny.

Anyway – I love these two kits – not only because I love the products, but because I love the packaging! I know it’s wrong to judge a book by a cover, but I would be lying if I said I didn’t like good packaging on makeup. C’mon, you agree with me.

Smashbox has released two awesome sets, Studio Pop for Lips, and Studio Pop for Eyes.  Each set comes in a cute little white tin – wrapped in a bold wrapper!

For Lips:

Experience super high shine and playful pops of color as seen at the studios with this set of five glosses in Smashbox’s favorite shades.

Lip Enhancing Gloss:

  • Illume
  • Razzle
  • Spiceberry

    Reflection High Shine Lip Gloss:

  • Star
  • Candy

For Eyes: 

Discover Smashbox’s must-have products for camera ready eyes with this super sleek set of Eyeliners and Smashbox’s best-selling Full Exposure Mascara.

The top level is all about eyes with a trio of eye colors including a highlighter, midtone and definer shades, plus a Tightline Cake Eye Liner for added intensity.

The bottom level houses a Bronzing Pressed Powder and Second Skin Cheek Colour for a sun-kissed glow and pinch of color on the cheeks.

Also included is a mini Lip Glacé tucked inside to finish the look. Available in two classically neutral options Cool Neutrals and Warm Neutrals.
